John Cassavetes (1978):

There sawe I fyrst the derke ymagynyng
Of felony [...]
The pyckpurse and eke the pale drede,
The smyler, with the knyfe under the cloke.

I'm not really sure where to put this, it's not properly a video nor is it a movie...


In case any fans of British comedy have missed it, there is a show currently on netflix streaming called 'the comic strip presents' featuring most of the casts/writers of Young Ones and Ab Fab. It is an mix of short films, many of them spoofs of various genres. Some are brilliant, some not so much, but it is fun to see what good actors the lot of them are.

And there is one episode I found to be a stand out as far as carrying a political subtext that has become disturbingly true in the last 20 years since it was made.

http://movies.netflix.com/Movie/Comic_St...kid=438403

I really recommend watching the 2nd show of the 7th season called 'the red nose of courage'. It depicts former tory PM John Major raised as a circus clown and in that persona he meets his opposite number in the labour party and they discover just how much they have in common. The conclusion they reach is quite precient for it's production date of 1990.

Besides, it's worth it to see the performances of Adrian Edmundson and Dawn French in the lead roles. Not the sort of acting they usually do, but that's the fun of this series!

Sandy art, kids’ futures | Bad Astronomy
— June 14th, 2012, 3:22 PM

    The company that makes OMO washing machine detergent wanted to have a fun ad showing how it’s OK for kids to get dirty. They commissioned JOOheng Tan, an award-winning sand sculptor, to make three huge backdrops for the ad campaign, showing the imagination of kids at play.

    Why am I writing about this? Because the backdrops they chose for the ad show kids being an astronaut, an archaeologist, and a physicist:

    Image

    See the apple falling near her head? I missed that at first in the small image, but it’s obvious in the bigger one. Very cool. Ads of the World has more info and more pictures, too. They’re wonderful, so go look.

    They also made a lovely time lapse video showing the making of the sand sculptures and the kids playing.

    Nice. I know it’s a soap ad, but this is the sort of thing we could use a little more of: encourging kids to be kids, encouraging them to be scientists and explorers, and encouraging them to use their imaginations.
