Write It Like Film Director Ingmar Bergman

Film director Ingmar Bergman was a frequent writer of notes. To celebrate Ingmar Bergman's 100th anniversary, Bergman's characteristic handwriting has been made into a web font.

For over 60 years, Ingmar Bergman wrote everything – from entire manuscripts to passing thoughts – by hand in his yellow notebooks. To commemorate the centenary of his birth, we have created a font based upon his handwriting. Add a touch of drama to your everyday life by having Bergman write your grocery list, a greeting to grandmother or a shout out in social media. […]

Try it out for yourself here, but be aware that what you'll scribble end up for all to see at the left side.

Watch the Classic Graffiti and Hip-hop Documentary 'Style Wars' (1983)

You can now watch the classic graffiti and hip-hop documentary "Style Wars" (1983) over at archive.org (with a hardcoded Spanish subtitle however).

The synopsis taken from the official documentary site:

Directed by Tony Silver and produced by Tony Silver and Henry Chalfant, it was awarded the Grand Prize for Documentaries at the 1983 Sundance Film Festival. STYLE WARS is regarded as the indispensable document of New York Street culture of the early '80s, the filmic record of a golden age of youthful creativity that exploded into the world from a city in crisis.

STYLE WARS captured the look and feel of New York's ramshackle subway system as graffiti writers' public playground, battleground and spectacular artistic canvas. Opposing them by every means possible were Mayor Edward Koch, the police, and the New York Transit Authority. Meanwhile MCs, DJs and B-boys rocked the city with new sounds and new moves and street corner breakdance battles evolved into performance art.

Listen to the Full 'Blade Runner 2049' Soundtrack

You can now listen to the full soundtrack for the film "Blade Runner 2049" by Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch on Spotify.

The album sounds very mystic and powerful with that 80's synth vibe, very similar to Vangelis original soundtrack for the first "Blade Runner" film. And that was one of the reasons why director Denis Villeneuve decided to go with Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch instead of Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson. From IndieWire:

"The thing I will say is that making movies is a laboratory. It.s an artistic process. You cannot plan things. Jóhann Jóhannsson is one of my favorite composers alive today. He's a very strong artist," Villeneuve told Al Arabiya English. "But the movie needed something different, and I needed to go back to something closer to Vangelis. Jóhan and I decided that I will need to go in another direction — that's what I will say. I hope I have the chance to work with him again because I think he’s really a fantastic composer."

You can listen to the "Blade Runner" soundtrack by Vangelis in one of my earlier posts.

Copy All Urls: Copy All Those Opened Tabs with This Great Chrome Extension

Very often, I find myself having many tabs opened at the same time in Chrome when working with the blog. I sometimes choose to save those URLs in a text document for future reference, a task that can be somewhat time-consuming.

Thanks to the work of developer Vincent Paré, a Chrome extension called Copy All Urls has been created, which lets you copy all opened tabs/URLs into the clipboard. You can then paste those URLs into a text document or to the browser to create new tabs.
