The Hire from BMW Films

bmw films the hire

from wikipedia
The BMW film series, The Hire was a series of eight short films (each about eight minutes long, on average) produced for the Internet in the summers of 2001 and 2002. The "first season" films, were executive-produced by director David Fincher with small "interludes" (supposedly "bridging" the actual films together but having nothing to do with them at all) directed by Ben Younger. The three "second season" films saw directors (and siblings) Ridley Scott and Tony Scott take the place of Fincher in the role of executive producer, due to Fincher's full calendar with Panic Room. Fincher did manage, however, to help produce "Ticker". All eight films featured popular directors from across the globe and starred Clive Owen as the "Driver". Each film's story highlighted the performance aspects of various BMW automobiles and are an example of the technique known as branded content.

Xmas Tree Subway Train Layout 2009

Here is the finalized version of the 2009 xmas tree layout using an MTH Premier R40 Subway set, Lionel Fastrack, MTH Graduated Trestle System, and MTH Realtrax Trestle Set.

Here you can see how close the train is to the upper deck when it has to go under.

Here is the upper deck view of the spiral.

And here is the lower deck vantage point.

This was the 1st version, but due to the incline of the spiral it's better to have the train go down on the steep grade.

Hayden Panettiere Tattoo Misspelled?

Hayden Panettiere's tattoo is fully visible in these pictures from Cannes. What we can see is an Italian phrase, "Vivere senza rimipianti". This translates to, "to live without regrets." Unfortunately "regrets" in Italian is "rimpianti."

So it looks like Hayden has at least one regret...

Make sure you put sunscreen on that tattoo
