rhino roto



I went to the Portland zoo and saw the most active rhino I've ever seen. I took some pictures and roto-scoped... for 5 seconds of footage.

Arundhati Roy- Come September



I recently discovered this. I read The God of Small Things in 2005, and it changed the way I look at the world. Arundhati is worthy of the greatest respect. If I had heroes, if I were wanting an idol, it would be Ms. Roy.

Then the reality of this:


And her question for Droppingknowledge.org (if you haven't, check it out, it is a beautiful concept)

More Palin eating her own words



A person came into my coffee shop today, apparently with a past connection with Palin. His brother taught at her highschool and she was the mean girl. I'll bet she was a cheerleader and head of the homecoming committee, the girl with a ton of friends who were terrified of her, but who wanted to be popular. Yikes.

Paris Hilton wins bonus points

See more Paris Hilton videos at Funny or Die


My friend Chris Norris posted this last August. I somehow no longer hate Paris Hilton so much.

I'll see you at the debates, bitches.

ANIMATION ANIMATION ANIMATION

The utter lack of videos on my part this fall/spring have been due in part to the fact that I have applying to 6 schools (just finished applying to my last) most of them graduate programs. You'll be happy to know that so far, I have made it into 4 out of 6. Ultimately, I believe, I want to study animation. It moves me. Here are some artists I have recently come across.

Vote for Blou- CLICK HERE

Blou

I received the following message from my sister this morning. I know this dog. He came to my graduation party and is kind of like the town mascot. I am usually wary about requests to vote for contests online, knowing that my mailbox will undoubtedly become flooded with unwanted junk-mail. This is not the case. There's no money involved, and all you have to do is click. And I'm a huge proponent for raising awareness about this serious issue. Almost as enthusiastic as I am about worldwide birth-control awareness. Anyway.

"There's this dog in my town named Blou. He's a rescued border collie. Jay, his human, took him in 7 or 8 years ago, psychological wounds, frost-bitten paws and all, and nursed him back to health. He's a kick-ass dog, the mascot of the local Harley club, and raises funds for all sorts of good causes, sending care care packages oversees to the troops and supporting shelters for abandoned animals.
He loves playing with flexible flyers- his teeth are still crap from past malnutrition, so you can't play any serious tug-of-war with him, but his hearts in it 100%- you can tell. He also has a knack for herding tourist children if they seem to be running amok and fighting off brooms and vaccum cleaners. I love him.
Anyway, Jay told me about this contest he joined, explained below, and asked if I'd help out with garnering votes. My network's pretty small, but I said I'd do what I could. If you all know any people who'd be wiiling to take two minutes out of their day to register a vote for Blou, please do forward this email to them. It's silly, I know, but why the hell not, right? And it IS for a good cause- who isn't a fan of castration? If you're not, go visit a pound.
Vote for Blou!
Morgan

Blou joined a contest that is sponsored by the Humane Society of the United States for Spayday on Feb. 27th. The contest is to call attention to the importance of spaying and neutering pets. There are over 4 million unwanted dogs and cats euthanized in the US each year. These are all unnecessary deaths. Spay/neuter programs work hard to reduce the number of unwanted pets who live miserable lives and ultimately end up being put down. Time is short as we are late getting into this contest. Some of the entries already have a couple of thousand votes. We do appreciate your support, Vote for Blou as many times as e-mail addresses you have and spread the word.
Simply log onto http://www.spaydayusa.org/bin/Rate?image_id=1003127305 please help us by voting and spreading the word!
~Becca, Kevin, Seth & Phoenix!"
