Video of the Week: The Social Network

In honor of the Royal Henley Regatta that takes place later this week, I give you this Armie Hammer appreciation post.

Also, somewhat related, check out these posts by Dan Boyne, coach of Harvard’s recreational rowing program, on the making of the rowing scenes from the movie, including the Henley scene. It didn’t actually hit me until I read this several months ago that the rowing scenes from the beginning are from that stretch between N. Beacon Street and the sandbar (if you’re familiar with the river by CRI). There are nine parts and some are a little lengthy but they’re well worth the read.

Part 1 || Part 2 || Part 3 || Part 4 || Part 5 || Part 6 || Part 7 || Part 8 || Part 9

    Hi, Kayleigh!
    Just writing to say that I completely fell in love with your blog. There is a lot of significant material here…
    My name is Maria Elisa, but people call me Marê. I’m from Brasília, Brazil. We have an enormous lake, perfect conditions for training during all seasons here, and unfortunately only 4 rowing clubs that barely work… If people knew how privileged we are (we have better conditions for training than Rio de Janeiro!), Brasília would certainly be a reference to the rest of the Country.
    Let me know if you have plans to visit Brazil one day, it will be a pleasure to meet someone to inspire the rest of us here.

    Best regards,
