So sorry to keep you all waiting for so long.

Life has been a whirl but now I think I’ll be back on track with postings.

I have an extra special treat since you lovelies have waited too long for me to get my act together.

I love everything. The styling. The music. The syncopated movements.

Plus Orla Kiely makes some of the sweetest clothes ever.

Thanks for hanging in there my friends. Expect more beautiful things to come your way!

i.wheelie.like.you.

This is a mini documentary featuring the Spanish brand peSeta in conjunction with the New Museum of New York chronicling the union of two mechanical lovers: a bicycle and a sewing machine. The result was this sweet film and 15 lovely bicycle caps (which can only be found at the New Museum shop–235 Bowery, NYC). Megafaun‘s The Longest Day was a beautiful feature in the film as well.

It almost compels me to go out and ride a bike. Almost.

This is a movie bar-code. Every still frame from the movie like the one above Slumdog Millionaire is compressed into a single frame, creating this bar-code effect.

This gives a great sense of the challenge that cinematographers have in creating a tableaux for the viewer.

Obviously I was ill this past week, which is why I didn’t post something super awesome last Sunday.

I’m not 100% yet but I’m over being sick (mentally).

So incubus of viral plague or not, I am giving you TWO posts to make up for it.

No need for applause, though I do enjoy the encouragement.

s’now.big.deal.

Oh my gosh. Can I just say I am so excited for what you are about to see? Seriously, I’m giddy.

In my Arts in the Elementary School course I took this term we had to make a stop-motion animation film–complete with story boards, backdrops, characters, everything. This is the result of 3 hours of hard work (I don’t want to give away the story just yet because you have to watch it!)

Maybe I’m obsessed because I thought it was so amazing–we seriously took over 400 frames to make this not-even-a-minute long clip–but I watched it probably five times on the camera when we made it. I was super impressed how our transitions turned out because when actually doing them I didn’t think it would look so great.

For those of you who didn’t get it… a synopsis: our story is entitled Efforts in Futility, where our protagonist is a snowman whom is self built. After an arduous journey he reaches his unintended final destination–to obtain a canonical carrot nose from a satirical “Pole” Foods grocery–where he melts before he is complete.

Complex, right? If you check out asteelpdx‘s account on youtube, you’ll find other groups who created films for the class as well. One of my personal favourites is theadventure: in which a man on a boat is swallowed by a whale, and it shows his adventures within the cavernous interior of said whale. They’re all great though, so watch them!

Enjoy!
