8 1/2 Mile

My roommate turned me on to this video after I told him how much I loved 8 1/2, and I have to say, this is one ingenious piece of mashup art.  It’s a trailer that features the music from 8 Mile, starring Eminem and footage from Federico Fellini’s 8 1/2.  It really captures the similarities between the two films, however culturally different and anachronistic they may be relative to each other.  I’d have to say it’s really only worth watching if you’ve seen 8 1/2, but I’m sure that the mind-blowing juxtaposition can be appreciated by everyone.  See for yourself.

    It is also worth pointing out that the two films are not just culturally and chronologically different. One is a masterpiece of modern film-making and the other is a piece of crap starring Eminem…

    Hello! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does running a well-established website like yours take a
    lot of work? I am brand new to writing a blog but I do write in my
    journal everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and thoughts online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
