Hollywood Casino 400 2013 Leaderboard: Results and Updated Sprint Cup Standings

Vandals scrawled messages, drew a smiley face and added other scribbling over the star on Vine Street near the Capitol Records Tower in Hollywood. The Beatles group star and the individual stars for the other members of the group were not damaged. Peace activist Jerry Rubin, who spearheads an annual celebration at Lennons star on the musician’s birthday, said Monday that the special annual public birthday celebration for John Lennon will take place as enthusiastically as ever this year. Ana Martinez, a representative for the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce, which installs the Walk of Fame stars, told Pop & Hiss on Monday that I notified the Hollywood Historic Trust last night. I am sure that they are going to look into it as we speak today. I am hoping that it will get cleaned up today. Update at 11:19: A representative for Capitol Records said Monday morning, “Though it is the Chamber’s responsibility, we were out there first thing this morning attempting to clean the star,” Universal Music Group’s senior director of adminstration Jim Kuha said. “We made some great progress and then the company that installs the stars for the WOF showed up and they took over. They’re going to strip and reseal the star which should take care of it. It will look great for Wednesday’s Lennon birthday celebration.” That event will take place at 6 p.m. in front of the Capitol tower at 1750 N. Vine St.

Sign up now! Hollywood Casino 400: Danica Patrick crashes out on Lap 1 Gear Up! Jordan Bianchi, SBNation Posted: Sunday, October 6, 2013, 9:24 PM Danica Patrick’s frustrating rookie season continued Sunday with a wreck in the first corner on the first lap of the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway. Starting 29th, Patrick sped into Turn 1 where she appeared to lose control of her car and veered head-on into the SAFER barrier. Her No. 10 Chevrolet suffered significant damage in the accident that also collected David Reutimann. “I knew the start was going to be definitely hairy, but when you arrive at Turn 1 you are not going very fast yet,” Patrick said. “So, I still was off the throttle and I just had enough momentum to go to the middle and so I did and I don’t know why it came around. “Either I drove into hard or the air is just that challenging or we were a little loose. I don’t know. I didn’t even have my front bead blowers on yet just trying to build heat in the front tires.” Patrick was one of many drivers who found the 1.5-mile oval difficult. A new Goodyear tire combined with cold temperatures and a slick track with little grip led to a track-record 15 caution periods Sunday. Among those who encountered trouble was Kyle Busch, who was involved in two separate incidents . The last one as a result of contact with Carl Edwards and Brian Vickers and ended with Busch’s mangled Toyota suffering terminal damage.

Tracking shots serve as a director’s signature on the canvas, a flourish that often marks a filmmaker’s style – and goes unnoticed by the public. Hollywood’s masters – Kubrick, Scorsese, Welles – all employed tracking shots, defined as a single, uncut scene in which the camera tracks its subject. Before computers allowed directors to create effects and virtual sets, tracking shots that went longer than a minute were considered the province of masters. But Gravity, which hit screens last week, features a 13-minute tracking shot that opens the movie. Touch of Evil (1958) The scene: The opening shot Duration: 3 minutes, 20 seconds. The backdrop: Considered the patriarch of tracking shots, the opening to Orson Welles’ story of kidnapping, murder and police corruption in a Mexican border town stands as one of the most elaborately choreographed extended shots of all time. Welles uses a crane to follow Charlton Heston and Janet Leigh as they walk several city blocks – as a car laden with a bomb in the trunk cruises perilously close. Goodfellas (1990) The scene: Entering the Copacabana Duration: 3 minutes, 3 seconds The backdrop: Director Martin Scorsese literally takes audiences behind the scenes of mob dining in this iconic shot, in which Henry (Ray Liotta) escorts his fiancee Karen (Lorraine Bracco) through a side entrance of the Copa. In addition to following his actors through dozens of extras and rolling props, Scorsese had to deal with sets under vastly different lighting: the streets, kitchen and a bustling club, where Karen asks Henry what he does for a living. The film would earn Oscar nominations for Scorsese and editor Thelma Schoonmaker, and win Joe Pesci an Academy Award for best supporting actor. The Player (1992) The scene: Opening shot Duration: 7 minutes, 50 seconds The backdrop: Considered the funniest tracking shot in film, Robert Altman’s story about a studio executive being blackmailed by a desperate screenwriter begins with one that features discussion over cinema’s great tracking shots, including Touch of Evil. But the best punchline: Buck Henry, who appeared in The Graduate, pitching The Graduate, Part 2, with Ben, Elaine and Mrs. Robinson living in a “big, spooky house” in Northern California. She had a stroke, but it’s a comedy, Buck explains.
