A Matter of Size

Last week, Tehila and I went to the cinema and saw an Israeli movie called "Sipur Gadol" (Big Story). It's English name is "A Matter of Size." It won awards at the Tribecca Film Festival in New York. It really is one of the most pure comedic and fun pieces of cinema I've watched in a long time. I really enjoyed it. The Weinstwin Brothers are going to remake it for American audiences. I don't really think it is necessary, but I thought I'd post the trailer here. If you get a chance to check out the original before Hollywood redoes it to their tastes, I would reccomend it.

Unicorn Planet

I know it's dumb, but I laughed outloud more than three times and needed to post Unicorn Planet.

Peeling and seeding a pomegranate always looked so difficult to me. I drink a lot of fresh juice here, but sometimes it's nice to munch on the seeds.

Zelda theme on the Theremin

Theremin - Wiki - an early electronic musical instrument controlled without contact from the player. It is named after its Russian inventor, Professor Léon Theremin, who patented the device in 1928. The controlling section usually consists of two metal antennas which sense the position of the player's hands and control oscillators for frequency with one hand, and amplitude (volume) with the other. The electric signals from the theremin are amplified and sent to a loudspeaker.

Ants create a lifeboat in the Amazon jungle.

Pretty amazing. Video showing an army nation of ants grouping together for survival. I think the best part, is how they do it, by linking their legs and arms. Pretty neat. And also, the vicious attack!!! ooo.... every good flick has to have the danger scene.

G.I. Joe: Resolute

The new G.I. Joe movie debuts today, and apparently it really sucks. Bad. As in, three seven year olds playing with toys could probably come up with a more convincing plot and more compelling acting. So, to pass the time, I found this series of animated shorts for GI Joe that was aired during Adult Swim on Cartoon Network and I thought I would post the first one on here. Just ya know, so we all don't get too bummed that Hollywood made a disappointing film about toys.

Meatloaf on the Old Grey Whistle Test

Wow, pure emotion.....Meatloaf in his younger days. Their faces, their emotion, their energy. Unmatched......

Vegetable Orchestra

German orchestra that makes instruments from veggies......

Why I'm not Posting

I thought a formal declaration was in order to explain my absence. I am currently traveling in England. I'm here for a yoga workshop (the official reason Tehila reluctantly agreed to my sojourn) in Oxford.

I flew into London, took the tube directly to Camden and within 120 seconds commenced drinking the fine, bitter, English ales of England.

And since then my life has been a blur, like a feather floating in the wind. A different couch (or floor) every evening. New pubs, new friends, new cities and towns.

Last night, while reading about the history of Oxford, I came across this and thought I'd share.

St. Scholastica Riot

Oxford Martyrs

St. Frideswide

Oxford is one of the more impressive cities I've ever been. It has stunning architecture, history, natural beauty, intellectual fortitude, intricate streets hiding faraway pubs, and happens to be one of the most multicultural places in the UK.

Cheerio good chaps, let's have another cup of tea....
