Grizzly Bear’s Ready, Able: A Haunting Surreal Mix of Sadness and Otherworldly Beauty

Grizzly Bear’s Veckatimst has given birth to another aesthetically appealing video.  Artist Allison Schulnik has created a mesmerizing smeary rainbow-dripped claymation landscape for Ready, Able.  It’s a hauntingly surreal mix of sadness, repulsion and a kind of otherworldly beauty.  Why is that one blob thing melting?  Why are those faces turning inside out?  And why do I get so depressed watching all of it?

Two Weeks: A Battle Cry to Keep a Relationship Together

Two Weeks: A Battle Cry to  Keep a Relationship Together

Two Weeks is a wonderfully imaginative, acclaimed animated short film created by Gabe Askew, set to the music of Grizzly Bear’s Two Weeks. Describing the animated short, Askew says that he chose the song Two Weeks by his favorite indie band Grizzly Bear because it inspired him.  Even though the video is about two men, he connected the lyrics to his own relationship with his wife.  Askew described his short film as, “The story of a relationship where one person is uncertain of the others loyalty.  You get sucked up into the daily grind and forget to tell the one you love how you feel.  They get insecure and worry that you aren’t committed.  And the line ‘I told you I would stay’ is like a battle cry for fighting to keep your relationship together when it seems to be on the brink.”
