This review contains spoilers for both movies.
Skyfall is the latest movie in the James Bond legacy and many are calling it better than Quantum of Solace and its enjoying over a 90% rating at Rotten Tomatoes.
In short: Skyfall is a shoddy rehash of The Dark Knight, the brilliant second film in Christopher Nolan Batman trilogy. The plot and characters are almost identical.
The verdict: I love it so far. Super light and fits in my sportscoat pocket. Looking to see if it fits into my lifestyle or not.
Absolutely amazing book. A must-read for any Flint Michigan native, or anyone who grew up in Michigan from the 60′s onwards. I just loved it. It’s a series of short stories that read like fiction but are all pulled from real life.
Get this book.
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll learn to love Mike as I do: a fantastic humanitarian who has given a lot of himself to good causes and doing what’s right for the little guy.
I picked up this Conair Travel Smart LadderKart the other day from B&H Photo Video for about $50 bucks and man, do I love this thing!
You can carry all your gear to a shoot, then use the cart you brought all your gear on as stepladder at the shoot. If you never plan on using it as a cart or never plan on using it as a stepladder, it functions perfectly as either.
It’s extremely durable and heavy duty, but doesn’t weigh a ton. It’s pretty light (18lbs) for how rigid it is. Supporting 300lbs as a stepladder and 250lbs as a cart requires significant strength.
As a stepladder, the top step is 30″ off the ground. Any higher and you’ve got a full fledged ladder, which is too bulky for travel. I can toss this in the back of a cab easy.
The foam padded handle is really thick – this is a real padded handle not just a thin covering. It makes pulling and maneuvering the cart a breeze, and gives you great leverage. I used to work in warehouses and our high-end premium push carts had the same kind of padded handles.
Just the kind of over-engineering I love!
When you want to use this as a cart, just flip the bottom part down and it locks into place. Rolling it around is a breeze. The large 4″ wheels will get you over all sorts of curbs, bumps, and obstacles. When you’re done, the bottom flips and secures quickly.
The Conair Travel Smart LadderKart feels balanced, well-built, and I could have paid 5x what I did and still felt I got a great deal.
At $60 this thing is not only a no-brainer, it’s essential.
