How Kubrick Made 2001: A Space Odyssey

A 6-part series of videos detailing the making of one of Kubrick's many masterpieces.
Since first seeing this movie at the Cinerama Theater in downtown Seattle in 1968 when it was first released, I have probably watched it (or at least listened to the marvelous soundtrack) at least a few hundred times.
These videos addressed some of the questions I've had about the story in the movie, as well as questions about how it was made.
The book, unfortunately, wasn't much help when it came to "explaining" what was going on at the end of the film.

total run time is just over two hours for all six videos.

Karajan's conducting of the Strauss waltz has been a favorite of mine since I received the soundtrack album as a Christmas present in 1968:

^ After watching that entire series I spent some time watching some of that YouTube poster's other offerings, and I think the 2001: a space odyssey is probably the best he has to offer.

.... and who knew there were no fewer than five different versions of "Bladerunner" released? dizzy.gif

.... whoever came up with the idea for the voice-over version (of Bladerunner) should have suffered a lifetime ban from Hollywood and the movie industry.

Me, I think that honor should be at least shared with whoever came up with Sharknado

More grist for the stair mill! thanks! I'll get on that one after I finish Swamp Thing.

Watched two episodes of the 2001 docu, that guy did great.

Hey, Ski - thanks for the 2001 A Space Odyssey post.  It's amazing the realism he was able to achieve despite no CGI, eh?   Now, for something completely different ...

A threat you never heard of  -  <edit - original youtube link broken b/c account holder was deleted- found again at link below>

Mega-tsunami: Wave of Destruction

The story begins with some details of a "miniature" mega-tsunami that happened in Lituya Bay, AK in the 50's.  Wow! eek.gif

Makes me think it might not be safe to camp near some of these large mountain lakes. Like Big Heart Lake for example.

I dunno.  What happened at Lituya was a freakish rarity, but "stuff" is always happening out there in all seasons. This horrific event in BC a few years ago really shocked me; wasn't even an avy, just one big rock falling (unusual in winter, I believe), almost with aimed precision.  I think of those people every time I'm lying on my favorite rock under the Big Four cliffs, watching the waterfalls while the daredevils take their chances in the ice caves.
