I don't care, I'm fucking psyched for this .

Guillermo Del Toro - "Well I think that you know the strangest inspiration, the basic one was I wanted to bring sort of a central opera, to the size, the scale to the creatures and the robots. One of the first images that came to mind is an image that you wouldn't think would inspire a movie like this. It's a painting by Franciso Goya called "Colossus." It's a painting where you see this gigantic figure looming above a very small town. You know not referencing pop culture stuff, this was the first thing that came to mind when making Pacific Rim."

"I think that when we started telling tales as mankind, some of the earliest tales we started telling were about monsters. You know so I think that we all love the idea of something so big, so powerful. Like the embodiment of a force of nature... monsters on the scale that we are creating which are over 250 feet, they are over 25 stories high. You see those things fighting each other it evokes a sense of awe...

The Sound of Belgium explores the rich but untold story of Belgian dance music.
From the dance halls with Decap organs to the golden days of Popcorn;
From EBM and New Beat to Belgian House and Techno.

A chronicle of unique popular music, The Sound of Belgium goes in search of the spirit of a nation and the people that danced to it.

At the end of the 80s, Belgium was taken by surprise by the New Beat, a once immensely popular, almost surreal type of dance music. Its unexpected but short lived success didn’t only leave a mark on a new generation of musicians in Belgium in the years to come; It’s eclectic mix of sounds and styles actually had its seeds in earlier decades.

Now is the time to tell the story that has been widely ignored by ‘serious’ music critics and the mainstream media in general. This is a documentary that goes in search of the spirit of a nation, by exploring the history of Belgian’s popular music and the people that danced to it.

There should be more great photography in this thread; here are some photos from Brian Schutmaat's "The Grays the Mountain Sends" (you should really view these large)

"In the past, when I was a child, I collected insects. I have a tendency to collect things. As an adult, instead of killing the insects, I began to take photos of them to collect the images.

"When I photograph, I start out with an open mind. If I start out with a precise idea of what I want to photograph, I might miss an interesting event or object. So, I begin with an open mind and try to photograph all kinds of objects.

"As you can see, my photos are small and seem old. In fact, I work so that they’re like that. I could wait 30 years before using them, but that’s impossible. So, I must age them. I take them out with me on walks, I rub them with my hands, this is what gives me my desired expression. This is called the process of forgetting or the production of memory. Because in old photos the memories are completely manipulated and it’s this that interests me and this is the reason that I do this work.

"If I take small photos, it’s because I want to make them into the matter of memories. And it’s for this reason that I think the best format is one that is held in the hollow of the hand. If we can hold the photo in our hand, we can hold a memory in our hand. A little like when we keep a family photo with us.

"I construct a story by hanging several small photos. I don’t do it chronologically. Sometimes I start with the end, sometimes with the middle, I never know where I will start. I attach one, then another, and then a third. Even I have no idea of the story it tells before I start hanging. It’s only in the theoretic hanging that the sense appears to me.

"In fact it’s as if I’m climbing a staircase and at the same time picking up some lovely stones. Even if I had decided to only take the white stones, if I see a black one I like I’ll take it too. It’s the same thing when I’m hanging, the story unfolds in a random way.

"Long ago, there was a man named Ryokan, who was a calligrapher and a poet. I have an enormous amount of respect for him. In one of his Haikus he describes simply the movement of a leaf trembling as it falls. But in reality, this poem can be interpreted in several ways. For example the falling leaf could be a metaphor for life, the right side up, the bad, and the reverse side, the good. From this simple natural phenomenon he speaks of much deeper things. I find this remarkable. I would like to take these kinds of photos.

"For me a good photo is one that soothes. Makes us feel kind, gentle. A photo that gives us courage, that reminds us of good memories, that makes people happy."
