Three matadors were gored at a fight on Tuesday, during the month long ‘World Series of bullfighting’ in Madrid. With no one left to challenge the bulls, festivities were cancelled for the day. The first time that’s happened in 35 Years.
I love it when the bulls win.
Laurent Pujol’s Surfing Magazine cover shot of Bruce Irons
To change how action sports photography and cinematography are approached it takes more than simply thinking differently. In the case of 41-year-old Laurent Pujol it was his background as a pro surfer and an image captured on a GoPro which a friend shared with him. Pujol riveted a Nikon D3 to the glass of a 16mm prime lens put it into a heavy duty housing and all that’s left to say is take a look at his photos. Also there is a great video below of Pujol himself talking about the evolution of his photographic process and where it is heading in the future.
The Mad Canadian
Directed by Robert Fortier - 1976
A tense, tight close-up of stunt man Ken Carter’s role on the stock-car racing track. Risking life and limb to rocket a car from a ramp over a parked line of cars takes more than the will to make a living. What else is involved is shown by the film as the camera looks and listens while the stunt man readies for his act and then makes his wild ride.
Also worth watching is Carter’s famous film Devil at Your Heels, shown here years ago I think by the D-Gen/Late Show crew. Watch the whole thing or skip to 1:30 for the main event. It’s brilliant. Carter eventually chickens out and they get a guy named Kenny Powers to jump in the drivers seat.

Watch this all the way through.
This has everything, music, power dancing, power swagger, mildly sexual power thuggery, power backup singer intimidation, power thai chi, impressive power stretching and did i mention power drumming.
I’m filing it under stunts.
It’s been a long time since I watched anything Elvis.
The last thing must have been the super cool King Creole
Skip to 1:40 for the dope track.
