Over & Over & Over & Over & Over & Over Again

Does it ever feel we are all in the same small room, just doing the same thing over & over & over & over & over again? TANGO won the Oscar in 1980 for Best Short.

Thanks Brain Pickings for another tip!

Words Can Not Describe… One Of The Best Music Videos Ever!

Long before I saw Nancy Sinatra, “These Boots Were Made For Walking” struck a chord with me (and that was long before QT reintroduced her to the fanboys). I have seen many of her performances available on line now, but this one resonates in a particularly unique way. Lee Hazelwood was a treasure.

This song and performance is so innocent, and so not. It’s is joyful, yet corrupt. It speaks of a time when fun could be other things. Ah, they just don’t make them like they used to…

Sublime Beauty: Ms. Faithful’s “As Tears Go By”

If we could see the future from the past, would we see it all in Marianne’s beauty on this clip? It’s not just the song: I find this beautiful and sad and full of information despite it’s simplicity.

And then compare & contrast with Marianne in 2010 (Thanks Mr. Rodman!)

The Perils Of NYC Bike Ownership

Having had my bike seat stolen (until I got a bike seat lock) and watched the sculptural change of many more unfortunate bikes over the years, this time lapse of one year in the life of a locked bike caught my fancy.

Thanks Gothamist for the tip!

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
