The edge of the world (Washington State)


Ex-coworker, power walker extraordinaire Ramona K. Holman sent me a slideshow of photos from her recent trip to Washington State. This is possibly my favorite of the bunch - I just like how pristine it is, and how small the people are, and how the tress look like they're falling off the edge of the world.

The Danish Poet





Take 15 minutes and treat yourself to this short film (broken into two parts, each more lovable than the last!) It actually won the 2006 Oscar for Best Short Animated Film. ::Sigh:: Back to writing my legal brief...

Fashion in the year A.D. 2,000!


This is either an amazing historical relic or just a really entertaining video.

"Very transformer-esque"




I feel guilty about not updating my blog even though I'm insanely busy. So here are two completely unrelated things: one beautiful, one terrifying. Enjoy!

The poster was designed by Lilli Carre.

Spring break...and I'm working


The houses in Franklin, NJ aren't all this creepy. But my friend Amneris passes by it on the way to babysitting each day (which is scarier?)

Something about the picture reminds me of the house at the beginning of Capote, the one that the Clutters were found dead in.

Also check out the cover of In Cold Blood - usually I find pictures of eyes a little undergrad art show, but this is pretty effective I think (if you buy that the killers were actually cold-blooded).

I really need to see this movie now



This is a clip from "Un Homme et Une Femme" that Virginia Heffernan posted, with that famous song that they use on commercials. It's so beautiful and relaxing (especially when I have a research memo due tomorrow), and I love (LOVE) the part where the guy flashes his headlights and runs to his family.

Photo hunting at 6 am




I woke up early, and felt like it would be a waste if I was too productive. Here are some photos I found that I like (it's too early for video).

The first photo is from the New York Times. The second one is by Michiru Nakayama and I feel like the father and daughter are gonna play air guitar for some reason. The final photo was taken somewhere in Toronto by Sam Javanrouh.
