mlkshk lives on

Today I wanted to find an alternative to mlkshk, an extremely lightweight and usable image upload service. The reason mlkshk is so great, besides being so simple, is that is uploads your photos at full resolution and offers them in the exact same format as uploaded. (Not to mention it serves them up nicely in a uniform profile page, for example mlkshk.com/user/frankbarrett)

There are plenty of alternative image uploading services, however, very few are allowed to work well inside the native Twitter ecosystem. Depending on which Twitter client you are using, images uploaded from services like mlkshk will either be shown inline with your tweets, or merely “linked to”. This can be extremely frustrating, as an image preview is crucial to showing your audience that there is actually something of value to be seen.

Luckily this blog post did not need to be finished, because mlkshk will remain open (mlkshk.typepad.com/mlkshk/2014/06/mlkshk-is-open.html)

Filming the scene where Jack menacingly backs Wendy up the stairs on the Colorado Lounge set of The Shining.
A diagonal dolly track behind them is rigged to roll multiple cameras up the stairs. Kubrick likely shot coverage from this setup, but the only bit of film shot from this vantage point that remains in the finished film is a brief shot where Wendy strikes Jack with the baseball bat.

I guess the grips had their work cutout for them too.
