  • Fantastic Mr. Fox

    I first saw the trailer for the Fantastic Mr. Fox in the theater in 2009. I fell in love with the look and feel of the animation, but when the movie actually released I was in the midst of preparing to move across the country. The story of Mr. Fox fell off my personal radar…

  • TRON: Legacy

    I’m loving the look of the new Tron movie, Tron Legacy. The new film builds on the original and tells the story of Kevin Flynn’s son, who goes in search of his father 20 years after his disappearance. Here’s the official synopsis from Walt Disney Pictures via IMDB: Sam Flynn (Hedlund), a rebellious 27-year-old, is…

  • Mathias Malzieu: The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart

    This is the book trailer for The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart by Mathias Malzieu. I’ve seen links to book trailers before, and never thought much about them. I prefer to read the inside flap or reviews from other readers to decide if I want to read a book, and I don’t want to have…

  • Only Today Does the Fire Burn Brightly

    Yesterday is ashes, tomorrow is wood. Only today does the fire burn brightly. -Old Inuit Proverb My copy of Widdershins arrived today. Widdershins, by Charles de Lint, is the sequel to The Onion Girl, which I read recently and loved. This quote was on the inside, next to the table of contents, and when I…

  • The PEN Story

    This short, created by Olympus, tells the story of the Olympus PEN camera, which lives on in the new micro four-thirds digital camera, the Olympus EP-1. As you probably know, I’m a Canon girl, but I’m finding very hard to resist the pull of this cute little camera. The video above was created entirely with…

  • Christoph Rehage: The Longest Way

    https://vimeo.com/4636202From November 2007 to November 2008, Christoph Rehage trekked across China, taking video as he went. But this was not your typical tourist video. Before he left he shaved his head and his face, and then recorded himself as he went along on his journey. The final edited project is an amazing time-lapse film showing…
