Fetch: The Harrowing Perils of Life in 2-D!

Fetch: The Harrowing Perils of Life in 2-D!

Fetch! (2001) is an amazing animated short film incorporating optical illusions by Nina Paley. It’s been a favorite of children’s film festivals (Chicago International Children’s Film Festival, BAM Kid’s Film Festival, Northwest Childish Film Festival); a jury of children awarded it First Prize at the (2005) Nisan, Germany, KinderFest. Fetch! wasn’t originally created for children, but they seem to enjoy it, since its clear, simple narrative and absence of social and political issues make it more easily accessible to them.

Fetch! was the first Flash-to-35mm film festival animated short. The film’s an adorably simple concept transformed into an Escher-like kaleidoscope of twisted perspective and graphic whimsy. It’s such a great 2-D abstraction, revolving around a man, a dog, a ball and a line. And that’s all; it’s all about perspective!

The Tarantino Mixtape: Tarantino’s Bloody Film Career, Blendy-Mashed Condensed

The Taratino Mixtape is a creation of the Webby Award-nominated media artists Eclectic Method, who have thrown the best of Quentin Tarantino’s movies into a blender and created a 7-minute mash-up of Tarantino’s outstanding bloody works, in all its classic-retro glory. The mixtape blends a number of Quentin Tarantino’s greatest movie scenes and soundtracks, including: Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction, Jackie Brown, Kill Bill I & II and Grindhouse.

The Eclectic Method is a trio of London natives Jonny Wilson, Ian Edgar and Geoff Gamlen, who have created audio and visual remixes for many of the worlds greatest performers. They’ve worked for everyone from U2, Fatboy Slim, Public Enemy to Coldplay, and their work is undeniably amazing. The Tarantino Mixtape is a blendy-mashed bizarre, comedic and gory ride down their collective minds.

Who can calculate the orbit of his own soul?”-Oscar Wilde.

Susan Boyle Makes a Triumphant Stage Return in London’s Wembley Stadium

Susan Boyle Makes a Triumphant Stage Return in London’s Wembley Stadium

Susan Boyle made a triumphant return to the stage after missing four concerts this week on the Britain’s Got Talent show’s live tour. The singer had taken a hiatus after stellar performances in Glasgow and Edinburgh, Scotland, and returned to the tour at Wembley Arena where she delivered yet another standout performance. The 48-year-old singer received a standing ovation when she appeared at Wembley, in London. She gave a standout performance of I Dreamed A Dream from the musical Les Miserables, which brought her international fame when she first performed it on the ITV1 show.

Susan Boyle from Blackburn, West Lothian, Scotland defies categorization and expectation, and prevails despite sometimes negative media coverage and rampant speculation. She demonstrates that whether or not she is able to appear at all of the BGT tour dates, she is resilient in pursuing her music career.
