partly cloudy

partly-cloudy

have you seen UP yet? you should go see it, preferably with some kids (though perhaps aged 5 and UP, my 4 year old nephew found parts a bit scary). but i have to tell you, the short film they showed before the film – Partly Cloudy – was probably my favourite, favourite part. as soon as it was over, i wanted to watch it again. probably the best short film since For The Birds. in fact, they should just make all their short films about birds.

adam beane, sculptor

shaun-dead-01

these toy sculptures by adam beane are incredible, his portfolio is a must see. he even did a johnny cash toy, and his princess leia is also super rad. i remember watching shaun of the dead for the first time & died laughing at this:

Why have we got to go to Liz’s?
Because we do.
But she dumped you!
I have to know if she’s all right!
Why?
Because I love her!
All right… gayyy…

neverending story

neverending story

i bought my nephew the neverending story on DVD for his 10th birthday (which is today). i hope he loves it as much as i did when i was a kid! my brother and i watched it almost all the time after school (i always fast-forwarded the wolf part, if i was on my own). i kind of hated bastian, but loved atreyu. i also really enjoyed falkor and of course always cried when artax died in the swamps of sadness.

oh man, our video collection was pretty classic. i was also obsessed with the three amigos, robin hood (disney) & the princess bride

ghana film posters

In the 1980s video cassette technology made it possible for “mobile cinema” operators in Ghana to travel from town to town and village to village creating temporary cinemas.  In order to promote these showings, artists were hired to paint large posters of the films & were given the artistic freedom to paint the posters as they desired – often adding elements that weren’t in the actual films, or without even having seen the movies.
