If you have seen Skyfall then you will be familiar with the approach to the island in this short documentary.

In reality the island is not the base of a Bond villain but was, for many years a coal mining facility run and maintained by Mitsubishi.

For a time it was the most densely populated place on the planet.

I’m not going to add any more facts.

Just watch this poetic short documentary.

I hope you all enjoy it.

Appetite for Distraction – Just Because.


It’s night time where I am and A Tribe Called Quest popped into my mind.

Here:

After this has got you in the mood there is the splendid documentary about these fine gentlemen directed by Michael Rapaport. He is better known as an actor. He is a good director of this documentary.

He is also a fan of The Tribe.

The A Tribe?

A Tribe?

I have provided the official link. You know the internet well if you want to do something illegal but I warned you. I warned you something bad would happen!

I also told the police that you’re downloading it illegally.

Enjoy everything.
