Where Tarantino came from

I’ve heard about this on and off over the years, but had never seen it until Kottke posted a link this morning: It’s a clip from “My Best Friend’s Birthday,” Quentin Tarantino’s first film, ca. 1987. If I didn’t know better, and I’m not sure I do, I’d suspect it’s an elaborate prank. The young Tarantino who appears as a motormouth DJ is a pretty good caricature of everything we associate with Tarantino the actor — all the hyperkinetic, can’t-sit-still, chew-the-scenery mannerisms are there in full. Fortunately, the things we associate with Tarantino the writer are present too — the black humor, the perfect pauses, the on-a-dime conversational switches. The directing? It’s a wash. The thing’s pretty primitive, but most of it was apparently destroyed in a fire at the lab. Still, it’s a satisfying glimpse of one of our greatest, weirdest auteurs in utero.

Infographic

By offering up clearly presented information, infographics have the power to not only engage onlookers but effectively communicate knowledge in a concise way.

A picture is worth a thousand words right? But what about a picture AND a thousand words? Whoa. You may just have an infographic on your hands.
