This was all shot with a RED Epic-equipped gyrostabilized camera platform, The GSS C520. “A portable 5-axis system that houses a range of leading digital cinema cameras, like the Epic and Sony F55, while also capable of integrating future advancements in camera technology”. Whoa. Check out what else Teton Gravity Research is up to (no pun intended).

This May, according to BeerPulse, thee Iron Maiden is releasing a branded beer called Trooper Ale.
“Being a real ale enthusiast, vocalist Bruce Dickinson has developed a beer which has true depth of character. Malt flavours and citric notes from a unique blend of Bobec, Goldings and Cascade hops dominate this deep golden ale with a subtle hint of lemon.“

Today, January 22, is the day most agreed-upon as Grigori Rasputin‘s birthday. While he comes with all sorts of history—from being a mysterious Russian mystic to having a seriously dramatic death—he’s also featured in the CRAFT BEERDS book on one of my favorite Russion Imperial Stout labels, North Coast Old Rasputin. Plus, he’s the inspiration by one of my favorite beer-geek avatar on Twitter, @HomebrewChef.
A big cheers and Happy Birthday to you, Rasputin.
