Madrid Knows the Future Is Analogue

1

A TV commercial for the city of Madrid produced for and aired on MTV features the Diana F+ (and lots of other analogue things!).

Chances are, you have seen the Diana F+ on TV. The city of Madrid asked Diego Hurtado de Mendoza to produce a TV commercial for them, to be aired on MTV. He chose to give a role not only to young Spanish hipsters, but also one to the Diana F+, which you can see at 0:30 in the video below:

Also worthy of note is that Diego Hurtado de Mendoza (as well as the Madrid tourist office) seems to have discovered that The Future Is Analogue – the TV commercial mainly shows analogue things to do in Madrid, such as playing chess, spinning vinyl tunes, listening to an old school ghetto blaster in a public park, and yes, taking analogue pictures. Hooray!

Expose to sunlight or bright UV light for 10-20 minutes or until color reaches full saturation. Machine wash using Inkowash to remove unexposed dye. Double your exposure time in overcast weather.

    A Salute to the Masters: The Sirius Space Mission to the Third Planet (A Tribute to Peter Mitchell)

    Imagine an alien space mission from a planet of the Sirius Star System to an abandoned industrial zone of Como, a city situated in the North of Italy.

During his journey, he learned the most common language of our planet -- English -- and he wrote this article for us. Read more after the jump!

    Transient Living: Armitage & McMillan in Denver, Colorado

    If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
