These hills will chew you up

There’s a huge Reebok ad campaign all over SF.

IMG_2888

The campaign website offers a nice mashup app for runners. I did the hotel loop (Union Square, Embacadero, Fisherman’s Wharf) but returned via Taylor and Nob Hill (very steep) … cos i didn’t see this website before.

The other routes look more exciting. A reason to return.

More Nutella Alternatives from Israel

Leah sent me snapshots of Nutella substitutes she saw at a supermarket in Israel.

I’ve added them to the Nutella alternatives group at Flickr.

Adding a Flickr gallery to my website

Like Stefan, I’m looking for a simple way to display my Flickr photos on my website. A couple of weeks ago I had a short look at the tan tan noodles album.

satellite

Today I tried out Satellite. It’s a simple php program that connects to your Flickr account. Simple and easy in setup.
There are a couple of little things to improve. For instance, I would prefer if clicking on an image in the photoset sends me to the normal Flickr page instead of the static version.

It’s installed at www.chiperoni.ch/photos/

Jeff Wall interpretation (kind of)



This Lisbon street scene reminded me of the Jeff Wall show I saw at the Schaulager some time ago…

Only that in my case it’s a snapshot…. instead of a careful composition.

TV Sunday

I just zapped into the making of Vitus on Swiss TV:

Die VITUSmacher

A film I really enjoyed. If you get a chance, go see it esp. in dialect…

It’s raining cats and dogs in Basel. I hope this rainy weather will not result in floods and landslides in the mountains.

open air cinema on the Muensterplatz

Yesterday I saw War of Lord* at the open air cinema on the Muensterplatz. I was lucky: it didn’t rain! It’s a good movie and realistic. And the movie definitely brings its message across. Category: Must see.

update:
*an offline commentator pointed out that I got the film title wrong. It’s Lord of War, starring Nicholas Cage.
