Tileables - Never Ending Patterns

Feb 08

The first iPhone shipped in 2007, and we still don’t have a product that is close to their experience. Android came on the scene just over 2 years ago, and this week they took our leadership position in smartphone volumes. Unbelievable. […]

“All of his movies are named after his character, and every single one of them starts with a musical number in which he introduces himself in the most insane way possible. In the first scene of Padayappa (1999), he’s asked, “Hey man, who are you?” and his answer is a four-minute musical number in which he plays the harmonica, flips through the air, oversees a massive martial-arts demonstration, and then morphs into a baby. At the end, the village chief says, “Padayappa, that song was excellent,” at which point the music revs up again, Rajinikanth climbs a 30-foot-tall human tower and smashes open a clay pot, fireworks explode, and the director’s credit flies out of it.” —

SUPERSTAR Rajinikanth! The biggest movie star you’ve probably never heard of.

I can’t thank @amishrobot enough for introducing me to Rajinikanth.
