Flash, HTML or both at the same time!

OpenLaszlo is mind blowing! If you don’t believe me check their demo Flash Flickr browser AND THEN check their identical DHTML Flickr browser compiled from the same code or XML as it were.

As if that wasn’t impressive enough, the concept of zero-install, or no-install, stand alone web applications (I prefer widgets) is quite a unique idea and makes it Oh-so-easy to integrate into whatever you need it for like a blog, community portal, forum, static HTML page etc.

The final clincher for me is that its Open Source. Flapping their floppies at the big boys, YEAH! We (I) here at TMI like it and award it the ‘Sh!tHot!‘ stamp of approval, look for it all good websites.

And while we’re on the Dojo subject, why not draw a picture AND THEN playback the creation process in real time! This ones just Hot!

Le Conseguenze dell’Amore

‘Consequences Of Love’ review

Last night Zosia took me to the Barbican where she is employed and we saw ‘Le Conseguenze dell’Amore’ (‘Consequences Of Love‘), an Italian movie directed by Paolo Sorrentino. This movie is brimming over with style and subtlety and has you engaged the whole way. The pace is slow but not unnecessary so and I found myself laughing out loud at some of the stange character interactions. The character is beautifully built up leaving you with a satisfactory truth.

But did I mention the sound track! It features music from Mogwai, James, Terranova, Boards Of Canada and Fila Brazillia. The sound track really made this movie a master piece and brought it together keeping you interested and enhancing the feeling of each scene.

The cinematography is also outstanding even though most of the scences are inside everything is well thought out and the creative camera work seem invaluable to the enhancing the mood of every shot.

This film has so much class it makes everything else out at the moment (Sin City, Episode 3) look like obvious shite.
