We just received an email from Ilke Turpijn plugging a new interesting and independent project she worked on. We've had the pleasure of working with her in the past on several projects. Apart from being a talented individual, she's also ape-shit bonkers, which is part of her charms aswell. Anywho, we've taken a five minute break from our pre-production work to pay this forward: go check out the promotional site for Onderdanen. There's a teaser-trailer there aswell which gives you a general idea on what it's about. Apparently the release date is set for December, so mark those agenda's, or don't, but whatever you do, just love your local heroes. Take care and eat your vegetables, Sincerly, Dolores, Daily

Long time no see, yes of course, we miss all of you just as much. The last couple of months have been packed with screenplay writing, location hunting, lots and lots of sweating in this heatwave, making phonecalls, drinking coffee, doing e-mails, lack of sleep, myspace ruins our lives, doing auditions etc etc. While phoning around for permission for several very nifty, cinematographic locations, it has come to our attention that the world is gonna keep on looking uglier. Beautiful old buildings are being torn down, to make room for higher classed condo buildings, atomic era swimmingpools will be replaced by happy-wild-ride-slides and kids these days are ape-shit crazy. We just got off the phone with a company that has bought the abandoned swimmingpool that sits in the city centre of Leuven, near the Hogeschoolplein. They start the slow killing next week. Luckily, kind souls like Wereldkeuken (by the way big it up for this fella, since he has been so kind as to help us look for an abandoned pool) has eternalized this building on the sensitive photographic plate. Check out his flickr set. It's nice. More later perhaps, but now, we need some more coffee and get our asses back in gear. With love, Dolores, Daily

Hey kids, just a short one this time around. New trend of the day: ads created by users, an agency's worst nightmare. Read more about it right here. The example they use is Tyson Ibele's Sony ad, a gem as they say. It's been around for a while and has been picked up now that it won a contest. You can read more behind the scenes goodies here. (you might wanna register first) Tyson is only 19 years old and we've always been impressed by the things he posted on the CG-society fora. Be sure to click his name and roam around his site cuz it's filled with crazy delicious quicktimes and jpg's, the kind we swallow without chomping and afterwards lick our fingers like a stripper would. Also, he has been so kind as to write down some tutorials, a geek-read for some, a must read for geeks. Despite his young age he's already working as a vfx-artist at MAKE studio, the one that brought us that Nike Robots ad a while back. That'll be all for now, take care, Dolores, Daily ps: a little something for on the road: Spike Jonz' New Miller audition ads.

Backstory: an ongoing dirty war is still raging between LPF en VX. To truely get all of this you'll have to read all the posts on the VXWARS blogspot. We, team VX, have won several battles but were quite surprised by Noc's comeback, blocking us out of the editing priviledges (since he is the head admin. there) and hacking our latest post. Hence a crossover post that should be (and was) on vxwars but now back in it's true form on dailydolores. Enjoy: --------------------------------------------------------------------------- We always had a hunch... ...and now that he admits it, well, we're kinda sure. So all ye faithfull vx-followers, follow us to Noctos' Blog, he's a member of the dreadful LPF, and see for yourself. Just in case he deletes it one of these days (that would be the day that he finally realizes that something on his blog went wrong) just in that case you can view it right here. It's not that we have such a grudge against Noctos, heck he's the only one of the LPF we ever shook hands with over drinks and cigars, it's just, he makes it so damn easy. With Love, Team VX --------------------------------------------------------------------------- [edit] We also have to admit, cuz when it's good it's great, his effort has not gone unnoticed.

Really nothing coherent this time around. Just liked to share some things with you lot. First off: Cameron Crowe is a tool and we very much disliked Elisabethtown. More on that in a later post. Secondly, some links we found intristink: * Addicted to Lost, they sure know how to make their ads. * The Tangent * Keith Richards knocking out a fan w/ his guitar. * Best written Blogspot we've encountered on the internet ever. * "I want you to sing as hard as you can!" Yup hell froze over and some Indian made Fight Club: The Musical. * A little something to make The Noctos sleep well at night right here. * And finally, what's better than Jack Black? Yes indeed, Jack Black in a Mexican wrestling mask. Nacho Libre! That is all, class in recess. [add on] Jack Black reminded me of "the greatest pilot you'll never see" reminded me of Rob Schrab, who I adored back in the good ol' comic book days, reminded me he's also in the movies reminded me to check imdb and yes he's got a thing coming up with a star-cast and some nifty nice 3d work. Check the trailer right here. [update] For Noctos: Death Cab For Cutie - Crooked Teeth (wink to Peter Gabriel's Sledge Hammer by The Bros. Quay) & Postal Service - We will become silhouettes (by Jared "Napoleon Dynamite" Hess who's also in the director's and writing chair together with his brother for the Nacho Libre film, quoted above)

We got home today from kind-of-work and the first thing we stumbled upon was this sweet gif-animation that brought back many nostalgic childhood memories. (no gif-animations in blogspot? CLICK HERE to see it play, please do or you're missing out on funny stuff) All the Goonies-fans in the house get a bright golden star from Grandmaw Dolores. We started thinking back of all the kids that starred in that film. The only ones we could remember were Corey Feldman, Indiana Jone's Short Round, a cute red-head and Chunk the chubby kid. But where are they now? And what do they look like in 2006? The ever-helpful folks at imdb helped us out of our misery. We found out that Chunk ain't that chunky no more, that Short Round is doing hollywoodian martial arts choreography, that one of the kids went on to become a hobbit and that even Josh Brolin was a Goonie. Also Sloth, or at least the 6'8" football-player who embodied him, passed away due to heart failure four years after they wrapped the film. But what we forgot all about, was that the little red-head was played by Kerri Green, who also starred next to Corey Haim in one of our other beloved 80's childhood movies: Lucas. We remember having the biggest crush on her in that film, that by the way also featured very young versions of Charlie Sheen, Courtney Thorne-Smith (yes THE Courtney Thorne-Smith) and was the debut-film for Wynona Ryder, who we later developed a crush upon, but that's for a different post. As a bonus, we searched and found some of these great wav's from the Goonies movie, delivered by the Chunk-meister himself, cuz he truely had the best lines. Those who got the remixing, mash-upping skillz, please, don't hold back and say hi to Spielberg's lawyers from us.
Chunk 01 Chunk 02 Chunk 03 Chunk 04 Chunk 05 Chunk 06 Chunk 07
If you'd like some more, or have trouble understanding some of the words go to this page right here. And I know I'm at least a month late with this, but still, Happy 20th B-Day Goonies! gif-animation (c) [NOTE] Before anyone says anything, yes we are aware that Miss Kerri Green in her Lucas-days resembles Emma Watson of Harry Potter fame alot. No we will not tolerate any jokes or quiffs about this in the comments. Any Corey Feldman/Haim anecdotes, however, are welcome as always.

Two things we'd like to say in this post. 1) YouTube is fantastic. The quantity makes up for the poor quality. 2) Dakota Fanning is scary (pictured above on the right, the one w/o the teeth). She's the little starlette of such blockbusting features like Man On Fire, War o/t Worlds and stinker Cat i/t Hat. She will not follow in Drew Barrymore's footsteps, we have been told. And she still manages to scare the bejeezus outta us. Hence next clip with something else that scares the good lord right back on the cross: Japanese fan boys. JAPANESE DAKOTA INTERVIEW CLIP Screenhead even said it better for this clip: "Oh, sure— when the high school age boy from Dakota Fanning’s Japanese fan club with the broken English gets the chance to interview her for television and freaks out from desire it’s all “cute,” but when we do it we have to announce ourselves to the neighbors when we move somewhere new."

Then they jammed the night away conducted by Hayao Miyazaki. 8,75/10 * ANIMAL COLLECTIVE. feels. (Fat Cat) rnk: your updated version of the Bremer Stadsmusikanten "Feels" like having an anticon-ant on top, the only question remaining about their broken songs is why they love to push the treble-button so much. maybe the Lonesome Organist came and took the bass away. 6/10 * BLOCKHEAD. downtown science. (Ninja Tune) Seven: The production is punchy, the beats live next door to early Shadow, so everything should be fine. But could you please get rid of these high pitched vocals next time? 7/10 rnk: Blockhead probably left his cave like Weird Al does in UHF. back in the downtown zone, he borrowed some styles from Shadow, in order to make sure you don't think he's Diplo, or RJ, or EL-P, or some other post-Hop dude. 8,5/10 * SOLID STEEL compilation by bonobo (Ninja Tune) Seven: Around six years ago, I invited Simon "Bonobo" Green over to Berlin in order to spin with us at the WMF and it was his first night ever to deejay in front of an audience. It was all good but compared to his latest mix, it was pretty amateurish. Damn, this monkey has evolved. 8,5/10 rnk: if Kerouac was still around today, he'd be listening to Bonobo mixes while On The Road. with the new tracks "recurring" and "change down", Simon proves he's still the master of sleazy'n beat-busting dreamscapes. 9/10 * JAN JELINEK. kosmischer pitch (Scape) Seven: Man, it was about time for a new album, wasn't it?! And what a brilliant one it is. Jelinek had to drift into the wide open space to find the cosmic pitch, a place with no time zones and no barriers.

[update] Filmthreat Frigid 50 has this to say about The Brett Ratner: 3. Brett Ratner In the face of comic book fan fury, Rush Hour filmmaker Brett Ratner assures everyone that Brett Ratner is not Joel Schumacher. Brett Ratner claims that Brett Ratner is a comic book fan. Brett Ratner promises that Brett Ratner will make the best X-Men movie possible. Yeah, well, Brett Ratner, the none-too popular director who takes to talking about himself in the third person, can say all he wants about Brett Ratner, but we can all be pretty certain that the once promising X-Men movie franchise is now as useless as Professor Xavier’s legs.

And also : filming on location for Walker: Texas Ranger, Chuck Norris brought a stillborn baby lamb back to life by giving it a prolonged beard rub. Shortly after the farm animal sprang back to life and a crowd had gathered, Chuck Norris roundhouse kicked the animal, breaking its neck, to remind the crew that Chuck giveth, and the good Chuck, he taketh away. * Cuz we tried explaining to someone the other day the genius that is Rahzel's If Your Mother... here some beatboxing goodies: beatbox mp3 heaven, Jacko & Oprah getting their groove on and Kila Kela showing off (in awfull .ram). Also gratious plug to Off The Record right here, who in a couple of weeks will introduce, count'em, three musicvideo's. * For Criss Crass, Noctos and Mr. Sunflyer: click here. By the way, while googling for a link to Mr. Sunflyer, we almost posted this one, which happens to be also making little films. We'd encourage you, Mr. Sunflyer, to take it to court and clean them of all their money to make a new wonderfull little gem with said money.

If patience was a dollar, you guys'd be millionaires by now. First, my hat goes off to my readers for still hanging around this dumpholish blog of mine. It's true, you get used to the smell and it's always nice to be recognized somewhere but what you have put up with the last couple of months... if we were you, we'd seriously feel neglected. But we've got excuses a-plenty, as always. We have been busy when we weren't blogging. The Daily is doing The Milow. Or at least the video for his soon to be released single "One Of It". We can't lift too much of our skirts yet but keep checking in on us and maybe in a year or so we'll post an update with the full monty. As for now, you'll just have to believe us when we say this is gonna rock some asses all the way to Washington and back. We will however, 'cause you know that's how we roll, tease you with some behind the scenes photography of our day out, shooting stills that will end up in the clip. You might, or more likely might not, recognize multi-talented, all around nice guy Pieter Baert with his finger on the trigger, shooting for dear life the staged romance between Milow and Patience-award nominee Sieghild. Pieter has got a nice blog going for him, check it, leave some comments and tell him we said hello. Also, he's one of the founding fathers of, just as note-worthy as the previous.

Anyway, it was a nice day, the rain stayed in and the shots turned out quite nice. Kudos to cast and crew. They always make us look good.

Giving you people the silent treatment for so long to only break that silence with some ads?! If we were you we'd give up hope on us and never check again. Than again you are you, and we like you, and we are we, and we like us. So enjoy the following. Soon we'll be bugging the hell out of you again on a regular basis. Be happy troopers in the meantime and play nice. * Stella Artois, apart from kiddieporn dungeons and the worst taxes on European soil, is what Belgium is famous for in the rest of the world. To promote the beer over in England they had an ad running this summer in several magazines that kept audiences guessing and nerds posting on fora. It kinda got viral and moved overseas where more nerds kept guessing, including yours truely. The ad consists of three typical English scenes that have been invaded by filmcharacters, props and winks. Every ad has 20-something movies hidden in it, some more obvious than others. So let's have a little contest here, first one to name as many films as he/she can wins a post named after him/her. We know, we know, wishfull thinking. We don't have any female readers. So send in your answers (we will know when you cheat and if you do, a puppy will die). Ten bonus points for the first one who spots the Fight Club refference. Props to Lowe London for the idea. Happy hunting: Beach (20 films) Park (19 films) Town (24 films) We will post the answers soon. Remember, the puppy will die. * Second ad of significance: Ford doet mirakels. (translates roughly into: Ford does miracles). I'm no partiot, but the next ad is not for a Belgian brand but props go out to Ogilvy Belgium for creating it. The people who read this and are from Belgium, might have noticed these billboards around the streets and more noticably in the stations of mayor cities (Brussels, Antwerp, Gent, Luik etc). It's just a close up of a face, nothing special. But something always struck me as odd with those pictures, I couldn't put my finger on it. They have a certain unheimlichkeit about them. Don't ask me to translate that, read here if you will. And now I know why. Apparently it's one of the first interactive billboards ever used commercially. Click here to see it in action. Read more about it on the official website if you will. If you do however, than mit ohne sound cuz the ed woodian comb-buzz the site produces makes us wanna axe our way thru several non-interactive billboards yelling "Here's Johnny!". That's all for now, more later. [update]: found this: a guy who works at Ogilvy explaining how the poster works.

Loads of work. Haven't really got the time. Once again, we know, it's getting mighty old of us to say this. So let's get this baby cracking like rice crispy treats. * Those egotastic maniacs at tell me that a script for a possible Batman vs. Superman movie is in the works, and the movie will go ahead depending on whether or not Batman Begins and Superman Returns are successful. I think we can all assume they will. Should the movie go ahead, Christian Bale and Brandon Routh will reprise their roles of Batman and Superman, respectively, as they are contracted to do so.

Here's a basic outline of the plot:

When Bruce Wayne goes out seeking bloody vengeance on the murderer of his new bride, Jennifer. Superman opposes him, fights him to the near death - then it's discovered that the guy behind Jennifer's murder is also this big baddie in Superman's circle and they unite to fight. Warner Bros. has commissioned a script from Andrew Kevin Walker ('Seven') with Wolfgang Petersen ('The Perfect Storm') directing. This is a different project from either Batman 5 or Superman 5.

* "But why would Superman do such a horrible thing like kicking The Bat to kingdom come?" asked Mr. Goap. "Cuz Superman's a dick!" we answered

* Uncle Dave's Scary Monsters by Uncle Dave and his nephews and nieces. Pretty brilliant stuff.

* Yuki promo by Nagi Noda. At first we thought why is that asian chick being so weird, it annoys us, then after a couple of seconds we thought it was gonna turn into a shitty Gondry/Chemical Bros. rip-off but then all of a sudden we started to see what was going on and now we kinda like it. Even the song, although repetitive sometimes, got sort of catchy.

* Finally to let you in on the tunes that been playing here at Daily Dolores Headquarters The Quantic Soul Orchestra - Introducing the QSO Hanne Hukkelberg - Cast Anchor Four Tet - Smile Around The Face Nobody - And Everything Else For those dans Le Bloque, good luck. For those on the payroll, reel'm in. And all the rest, Rock&Roll. [add on] Speaking of which Keltech Strikes Back

We bet it's getting boring us saying this but time is a thing we don't really have right now. So quickly here are some hits to smack it up, no explanations on these ones, you'll just have to trust us: * The Cat With Hands * The cybernatic Parrot Sausage * For Noctos: combining a thing he likes with a thing he really doesn't (Sasha Baron Cohen's mustard by the way) * Pump up the volumski * The Mill's Stunt City That is all for now. We'll be back soon. [update] He didn't quite handle that situation in a cool manner... What the hell is wrong with him, okay so he's got a new movie coming out, okay so he's (not) doing Katie Holmes but still... what drug is he on? Cruise Control: The Mov. Reminded me of a Conan O' Brien bit with Rebecca Romijn-Stamos.

Lots of very nice promo's came about the last couple of weeks. Some of 'm making me so angry/envious/jealous, the kind of feelings you sometimes get when seeing something very good, things u wished you made but didn't. Anywho check the following: * Prey Alone This one is madness. Made almost entirely with 3ds max (btw Autodesk Media Entertainment sounds like poop). Only the actors are real. The surroundings, cars and some of the props; all cg. Obviously a Finchfucker made this but I'm not complaining. Download as target or save link as: HiRes and LoRes Quicktimes. On one of the 3d artists sites you can read some background info on how they did it. CGChannel has an interview and loads of "before&after" clips. * Carpark North - Human Go ahead and call me nutjob but this promo/videoclip is one of the best I've seen this year. Just watch it. And then watch it again. Then check out their site and watch some more of their stuff. * Lise W - Séance Cuz lately I'm into the subtle cg-thing. * Bonnie "Prince" Billy - No More Workhorse Harmony Korine does Will Oldham. Feelingsgraph for this video was: hated it then liked it then liked it better then thought it was about nothing and could go with any song then loved the last shot (worth checking out just for that shot) then hated Korine for being a cheese ass rip off because: * French Kicks - When Nuff said on the rip off. * Four Tet - Smile Around The Face Liked the music better than the video on this one.

Chris Cunningham does it again. At the time of Aphex Twin's Drukqs release he made a little promo called Rubber Johnny, it was about 30 seconds long and weird as shit. You can view it right here. He liked the character (which he plays himself) so much that he wanted to make it into an experimanetal short film. It's about a 16-year-old, inbred mutant's solitary existence, locked in a pitch-black basement by his ashamed parents. They are TV addict rednecks who occasionally feed Johnny and yell at him for making noise. Johnny's only company in the basement is his little dog. His dog's I.Q. far outstrips Johnny's, who is a completely insane, bi-polar imbecile. Go to the official site right here and watch the intro & trailer. For some more background-info, read an interview somewhere around... here. Now what's the cool part about all this, is there's a screening of this little gem under our noses in bxl at AB's Domino festival, which by the way has a pretty cooky line-up. Let's saddle up boys...

* Chemical Brothers - Believe Really like the idea of the video and it's not poorly executed, altho the 3D could've been better. But I'm being nitpicky. * Gorillaz - Rock it Not a big Gorillaz fan but something about this song made me watch it three times in a row. And also Jamie Hewlett used to be one of my idols. And still sometimes is. (Here's the video for their new single Feel Good Inc. aswell)

Somewhere along the line this blog has become less regular, let alone daily, and more a "post by request" kinda thing. But put those hankies away because goodness is coming your way. Let's kick off the day with a quote by our favorite exterior paint specialist Mr. Banksy: "The time of getting fame for your name on its own is over. Artwork that is only about wanting to be famous will never make you famous. Any fame is a bi-product of making something that means something. You don't go to a restaurant and order a meal because you want to have a shit." Mr. Bansky brings me seamlessly to the three following links. 1) He went on a trip to New York and visited all it's musea. Disguised in beard and raincoat he contributed some art of his own. See it here but also some 'undercover' shots right here. It's unbelievable that he can pull stuff like this off but even more unbelievable that two of the four pieces are still up, eventhough it's out in the open on several sites and newsgazettes. 2) On the appreciation scale of one to ten, Shepard Fairey is right up there next to Banksy. The whole Obey Giant phenomenon, together with his Andre The Giant has a posse sticker campaign, has become cult over the years and made people aware of commercial overkill and mediareflection, just as Fairey hoped it would. The whole idea came to him after watching a particular movie, no doubt. The name of which being... 3) ... John Carpenter's They Live (Notice the absence of the exclamation mark), concerning the subtle takeover of a population by an alien race using subliminal messages which can only be viewed when using eyewear provided by the resistance group who has vowed to stop them. Also this film is responsible for one of the catchiest catchphrases ever stolen by a 3d-game character: "It's time to kick ass and chew bubblegum and I'm all outta gum". And finally, took me some time to relocate it but here it is N. : The Ring Hidden Camera Hysteria [extra treat #1] Interview with Shepard "Obey Giant" Fairey [extra treat #2] Todd Solondz new flick: Palindromes

French television channel 'Arte TV' has been running a series of behind-the-scenes documentaries on various Comic Book creators throughout the month of January. One of these episodes focuses exclusively on Chris Ware. The website for the series has video clips of every episode BUT Ware's, though they do offer a nice original flash animation of bits from Jimmy Corrigan (This is not the same animation as the one on the Pantheon site). Anyone who reads this site knows that I have an unhealthy obsession with the work of Mr. Ware, so it should come as no surprise that I've managed to obtain a copy of the episode in question.
A huge thanks goes to David Pouchard for recording the program and sending me the tape (You can view David's bibliography of Ware's work in French publications here). I got the PAL videotape transferred to DVD (Expensive!), and am seeding a torrent of a small (but watchable) quicktime file containing the entire episode. Click here if you don't know what a torrent is and follow the directions. Otherwise, you can grab the torrent file here. The show is mostly in English with french subtitles, so don't worry too much about the language barrier! (via
