Bric à Brac: A Tragicomedy of Two Raggedy Scrap-Iron Automatons

Bric à Brac: A Tragicomedy of Two Raggedy Scrap-Iron Automatons

I’m strong to the finish,
’Cause I eats me spinach,
I’m Popeye the sailor man!

Bric à Brac is an engaging 4-minute animated short film by the French filmmakers Emeline Degand and Maud Bourotte, who are two students at the EESA (now École Georges Méliès).  The cardboard, stop-motion animation tells the bittersweet story of two little robot-like thingees, who are made out of spare parts (as is everything around them).  The rhythms and poppy facial expression changes are awesome, and the two scrap-metal automatons really seem to enjoy experimenting with the musical capabilities of their bodies.  But very sadly, one ends up turning into an ecstatic Whirling Dervish, tragically getting much too carried away!

Obama’s Amazing GOP Question Time: An Astonishing Smackdown!!

President Obama’s 2010 State of the Union Address

President Obama gave his State of the Union Address on January 27, 2010.  Among the many issues that he addressed, Obama spoke about restoring security for middle-class families after a lost decade of declining wages, eroding retirement security and escalating health care and tuition costs.  President Obama also committed himself to repealing the military’s  “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy.

Obama’s Amazing GOP Question Time: An Astonishing Smackdown!!

President Obama and Congressional Republicans sparred over a range of policy disagreements Friday in a lively Q&A session that highlighted the void between the parties.   A robust debate on policies and politics with the opposition party is a rarity in the scripted world of American politics., but accepting the invitation to speak at the House GOP retreat may have turned out to be the smartest decision the White House has made in many months.  The Republicans learned the hard way that debating a former University of Chicago law professor is pretty darn foolish! Many of the Republicans asked excellent and probing questions, but they sat in astonishment watching their arguments simply be demolished by the President.  It was an amazing Obama slam dunk, another slam dunk, and yet another slam dunk!
