More Opera Live!

May 11, 2010 — Leave a comment

After posting about Rigoletto, the good guys who worked on these Opera Live projects [Peter from Little Miss Robot] have sent word that the second “episode” is now up for streaming for free. More FREE Opera!

With more pretty cool illustrations presented on the trailer for Gaetano Donizetti’s Il Campanello di Notte (The Night Bell). Impossible to miss the chance to watch this… come on! It’s FREE!

And we support great FREE stuff.

Check it out at the OperaLive.org site for a WHOLE month.

Well, color me surprised.

Not only has Emma Watson had her website re-designed with a brand new and clean site, but also it seems she’s finally bought off the previously bought EmmaWatson.com – as you probably knew (or didn’t) Emma’s previous URL was EmmaWatsonOfficial.com, which now redirects you to EmmaWatson.com so someone probably made a bit of money there.

The new site has a lot of very-welcomed white space, really big pictures, and easier navigation. Stuff is easier to find, and it’s probably easier to Google. And did I mention the pictures? There’s a lot of slideshows with her editorials and photoshoots and film stills. Sure, you can’t save it, but you can totally “print screen” them xD

And HELLO? Exclusive commissioned photos? People will probably print screen those too, but it is still nice to know you can rely on the official site to deliver original content.

Emma is proving to have a savvy online presence.

And be very fashion.

And I’m glad she doesn’t tweet.

Now all she needs to do is release a photobook. RIGHT?

Because photobooks are totally pretty. And she can pull it off… release a PB, I mean.

I’m just gonna re-post what I wrote on Facebook xD

WOAHHHH, Stella Artois and The Auteurs are letting us watch 6 films for free. What’s better? They are 6 GREAT FILMS. Doesn’t get much better than that.

Polanski’s Repulsion this has been changed for
– Walkabout
– Russian Ark
– Lars Von Trier’s Europa
– Hirokazu Koreeda’s Daremo Shiranai (Nobody Knows)
– Tropical Malady
Hou Hsiao-hsien’s Three Times this has been changed for
– Faust

Just head over there, login and watch.

And remember… if you snooze, you lose.
I’d better watch Tropical Malady before it’s gone like Three Times. xD
