Watch The Social Network Making-Of Documentary Online

See below for links to each of the four parts on IMDb
If you enjoyed David Fincher's The Social Network as much as I did, you should check out IMDb's online streaming presentation of the 93-minute making-of documentary, How Did They Ever Make A Movie Of Facebook?

It's the same documentary that's available on the Two-Disc DVD of The Social Network, but maybe you streamed the movie - or got a screener copy as I did (the awards screeners don't usually come with all the accessories).

IMDb has split the documentary into four parts, each with a different url:

Part One: Commencement

Part Two: Boston

Part Three: Los Angeles

Part Four: The Lot

Keep a note of these links, as there doesn't appear to be an automatic link to the next part of the documentary when one part ends.

If you liked the movie, you should also check out the book on which Aaron Sorkin's excellent screenplay is based, The Accidental Billionaires by Ben Mezrich - or the rather better analysis of Facebook's development (with involvement by Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg, which Mezrich's book lacks), The Facebook Effect by David Kirkpatrick.

(Thanks to a tweet from SlashFilm for alerting me to the IMDb streaming, and to Digital Trends for links to the four parts.)

The High Tower Apartments and The Long Goodbye

Photograph by Dwayne Moser. This beautiful apartment complex in Los Angeles is called the Hightower or High Tower Complex (the High Tower name refers to the central elevator, I believe), and was designed in 1935-1936 by architect  Carl Kay - and made famous in 1973 by my favorite film, Robert Altman's The Long Goodbye (see Why I Love Robert Altman's The Long Goodbye ). Although Altman used the building as Philip Marlowe's apartment in his somewhat post-modern Long Goodbye (the film plays with references to Old Hollywood and opens and closes with the song, Hooray For Hollywood ), the building has another direct connection to Raymond Chandler. It was apparently the inspiration for Chandler in his book, The High Window (the first Chandler novel I ever read), in which Chandler describes the residence of Philip Marlowe as being on the cliffs above High Tower Drive in a building with a fancy elevator tower.

Andrew Hale and Sade

On Thursday evening, we saw our longtime friend Andrew Hale perform with Sade at the HP Pavilion in San Jose, in one of the most beautifully conceived and produced concert performances I have ever seen. Sade is a rare musician, in that she and the band only write, record and tour every eight to ten years, so that in a very real sense you can measure your life by her. The band's music is always fresh and always newly conceived - for their previous album, Lovers Rock , they stripped everything down musically to a minimalist sound and banished the saxophone that had been so much a part of Sade's heavily soul- and jazz-influenced style. The latest album, Soldier of Love , released in 2010, is one of the most tender, moving collections of songs yet, from the astonishingly beautiful Morning Bird , which features exquisite keyboards from Andrew, to the soulful, retro, return-
