peacock showdown

2 reasons to love this pic:

  • peacocks are mainly known for their pristine beauty so seeing two of them fight takes your mind in a different place (here’s a video of two other ones going at it)
  • perfect timing.  great photos inspire a story and this one forces you to think about what happened before and what happens next (notice how the peacock on the ground is looking up at the white one like he’s wondering what’s next as well)

if somebody knows who took this photo, tell me so i can give credit where credit is more than due (spotted @ lit reactor).

pictures of perfection

twisted sifter picked out the 50 “most perfectly timed” photos ever:

“By Internet standards, a perfectly timed photo occurs when two of the following three conditions are met:

1. Perfect Place
2. Perfect Time
3. Perfect Angle

Sometimes the holy trinity of perfectness is achieved and you get an Internet classic like so many of the photographs below.”

you can check out the full list here & my favorites below (click for a closer look):

one of the happiest times in life is storytime.  and not just when you read some maggie brown or maurice sendak to your son/niece/granddaughter, but also when the child comes up with a sprawling tale for you.  to get lost in imagination and see things like monkeys having a picnic on the moon is great at any age & on either side of the story.

bianca giaever does an excellent job capturing this feeling in her short film “the scared is scared.”  in it, she asks a 6-year old boy what her movie should be about and then brings his response, which includes animals at the pool & some wise beyond his years advice, to life.  via joseph gordon-levitt.

what was your favorite story as a child?  do you think it would make a good live-action film?

wild suburbs

01/29/13

if i was going to have a pet, i’d want either a domesticated dog or a wild cat like my friend on the couch.  the baby pic on the left is a nice touch.  also, i think the head trophy has more cachet in a tiger’s living room than it would in yours.

this year’s sundance film festival comes to a close today.  if you weren’t able to make it out to park city, utah, you can still see some of the shorts from the event online, thanks to a collabo between sundance & youtube.  i included a few of my favorites below (you can check out the rest here).  let me know what you think:
