One of a Kind

If I tried to give you a short synopsis of this I would probably fail or I would completely do the spoiler thing and give the game away.  What I will say is I think you will find this latest piece by Trunk Animation, directed by Rok Predin a peculiarly satisfying if enigmatic experience.  Plus if yo

Monty Python’s Dead Parrot Returns (and This Time it’s 50-Foot-Tall)

For Londoners yesterday it was time for something completely different.  Along the banks of the River Thames which runs through the heart of the city a rather large dead parrot, fifty foot in height (or length depending on the time of day and the bird’s recumbence), had been deposited.  Although it may have bemused any number of tourists for most British people a dead parrot is an immediately recognizable cultural icon.

Credence: Challenging LGBT Portrayal in Film through Sci-Fi

Film should challenge as well as entertain.  So it is good to see that young filmmakers like Mike Buonaiuto is making the first Sci¬Fi short film of its kind to challenge the way gay characters are portrayed.  Credence looks like a very interesting concept if the trailer above is anything to go by.

A Rift Runs Through It: Iceland’s Divergence of the Plates

Thingvellir, Iceland: the landscape is wild and desolate but hauntingly beautiful.  Yet the serene magnificence of the surroundings belies an astonishing fact.  It is here as a result of massive, geological trauma.

Zombie Survival Guide

We have seen, so often, survival guides showing us how to get through the zombie apocalypse.  Here at last is a short instructional video made by zombies for zombies.  It’s not easy being the undead and if you can escape its pitfalls then you certainly have a bright (and meat filled) future to look

A Walk Around The Block by Bill Harley

This song by Bill Harley became so popular on one kids’ satellite radio station that, on the request of parents, it was taken off air for a week.  That is altogether appropriate for a song which celebrates the uncanny ability of almost every child to infuriate and exasperate its parent to the point


If you have children who are about to start their summer holiday then you might appreciate this – as long as you keep in mind that its creator, Chris Capel, has his tongue so firmly in his cheek it’s probably a surprise that he can talk.  If you are easily offended then, again, don’t press that play


The wonderfully barmy English philosopher Jeremy Bentham once wrote: Stretching his hand up to reach the stars, too often man forgets the flowers at his feet.  It is so true.

Africa’s Unique Volcano: Ol Doinyo Lengai

For countless generations, the Maasai people of Tanzania have called the active volcano which dominates their landscape Ol Doinyo Lengai.

Verdi and Wagner were born in the same year – 1813 – and last year was their bicentennial.  Although the two never met they didn’t much like each other's work.  For Wagner, Verdi’s work was too populist: for Verdi, Wagner’s work often strayed off path which is a nice way to say way too long and a bit bombastic.  Here, animator Pablo Morales de los Ríos imagines that the two did meet – and they sort each other out through five Acts (or should that be rounds?
