The Subtle Art of Cinema Gifs

“A boy’s best friend is his mother.” Psycho (1960) If We Dont, Remember Me is a beautiful, poignant and not un-creepy collection of film clip GIFs and quotes. I’ve put the freakiest ones after the jump,  but there’s a sexy one in there for you too.

Provide instant gratification and a quick fix. […]

Since78

Since78 is a blog now purely devoted to music mixes of the author’s own design, but each themed around a supposed narrative. They’re called “heists” and, sure, most of them are given that noir, 60s film score  quality, but the art direction and the range of music buried within (from Piero Umliani to Beastie Boys), […]
