Ingmar Bergman died today at the age of 89.. His movies, even if they took some patience to watch, always made you think about something which is quite rare these days. Some classics are below.

:: Dogpatch ::

Got this email from John Graham - "Some yuppie fuckers are going to wipe out all the beautiful graff work down in Dogpatch. They're already painting over the Sectwanto and other pieces, and they're scheduling a "community" whitewashing / paint-over event for Warm Water Cove park on Saturday morning, August 4: CHECK IT... This is bullshit and I think Fecal Face should make some noise about it... Any suggestions? Maybe a stencil assault in the afternoon right after they've done their evil "work"? Or is there something to be done beforehand that can prevent it from happening (i.e., mass media alerts, etc)?... WE WENT DOWN THERE A COUPLE WEEKS AGO AND TOOK SOME PHOTOS (scroll down)

Seeing as how it's Fourth of July today, we thought after you sat in the sun and ate food for a while, you might want to watch some movies.. This is an series that BMV paid to shoot a while back called The Hire. Sort of dated by now, but they changed web video back in early 2001 and the films are really well done. They are all by different world renown directors, all using great actors, and all staring actor Clive Owen as the driver:
