Arcades

Now, when I was young an arcade was a place that was full of arcade machines. I am talking about such quality games as Star Wars, Aliens, Space Harrier, NBA Jam! I used to go to this one up north in Scotland and also one closer to where I used to stay. Ah man, those were good days. Anyway, Rift-Trooper has written an excellent article about them, which you can read at his site.

Ruben Fleischer

He has directed videos for Dizzee Rascal, MIA and DJ Format amongst others. There is a cool Levi's advert featuring Hiroshi Fukiwara. Check it out.

Go and check out his site.
