A few months ago a couple of my friends told me they were going to start a video production company to make abstract videos with “paint and water and stuff”. I was like, OK. That’s nice. But today they released their first commissioned work and it’s TOTALLY GREAT. I can’t believe this was made in their kitchen where I have spent many a night sleeping on the floor on a pile of laundry!! How did they just teach themselves how to make a film, IDEK.
BTW, you can follow them on Twitter @Splingfilm, and you can see some of their illustrators other work here! :)
I meant to say, thanks for putting this up! It’s all so exciting. The video has a new home now, here:
1) if you are a poet and your poems are bad, then you are not doing your job very well. 2) how bad does something have to be before it no longer counts as an example of that art form? art…
I guess what people seem to be missing in this latest Amanda Palmer kerfuffle is that it was a blog post. I mean it’s poetic in structure because that’s her thing, but it’s not The Waste Land we’re talking about, it’s someone venting their emotions on their blog. Which is… exactly what everyone else does on the internet.
If I chose to format my 2AM reblogs as comics, would it make them works of art instead of faffing around? It’s a continual problem on the internet when it’s incredibly easy to find yourself reading or seeing something with no context as to why it was written or who for.
APPARENTLY THIS IS HOW ZOOLOGISTS WEIGH TINY BIRDS
this really needed to be on this blog
this is 100% true: I have personally done this.
Ditto. The other option involves weighing them in a bag, then subtracting the weight of the bag from the overall weight, but birds can be kinda wriggly which often presents some problems… also then you have to launder birdshit out of all the bags.
of course, if the bird fidgets and falls out the toilet roll/ film canister / whatever tube you are using them you will have a tiny flying ball of feathers speeding everywhere and flying into the windows of whatever room you are in shitting on things and sqwawking in terror
you can really tell what kind of upbringing we had, reading these reblogs
