Hey Gasmii. It’s been pretty brisk around SoCal lately and all I want to do is hibernate. Really, most of us don’t leave our wintry homes and come to Los Angeles because we’re made of hale and hearty stock, you know? We are precious, delicate flowers who can only flourish in warm temperatures and visible air. Anyway, at times like these I like to just watch some WTFery on the various video outlets. And here’s this week’s collection.
I know I’ve referenced Murakami several times but the bastard keeps his cracked-out, animated genius under lock and key because why create something if you can’t monetize it, amiright? But not enough people in the US are aware of KaiKai + Kiki. I find this unjust, so here’s a trailer of their exploits.
Pity you didn’t get to see Kaikai (or was it Kiki) fertilize his watermelon patch atop their living space ship. That was some fine, family entertainment.
You know what I miss about air travel? No, not the fact that I didn’t used to have to pay to check a bag, or have a seat I could comfortably sit in and certainly not the overly salty in-flight meals. What I miss is the sexism directed toward flight attendants.
Thanks, Braniff, for reminding us that even an “air hostess” should look pretty.
Speaking of sexism (speciesism?) let’s watch a frog objectify a pig, shall we?
You’re welcome! Some things once seen can’t be unseen.
During my “day job” recapping Boardwalk Empire, I’m always amazed at how seamlessly Brainstorm Digital recreates 1920s Chicago or New York and especially Atlantic City all from a sound stage and strategically scouted locations all in the tri-State area, primarily in the outer boroughs of New York. They have the most meticulous effects team working in entertainment today and after each season they compile a video of their work. For Emmy consideration I’m guessing, but they still find their way to Vimeo.
So if you’ve never watched BE and want to see how 21st century Brooklyn can turn into a 1920s seaside resort, or how a young man who looks like Erroll Flynn can have half his face blown off to play a WWI veteran, here’s the first season’s highlights.
I’ve watched that video several times and I still get gobsmacked at how much work goes into creating these effects.
Finally, it’s cat video time! And you’ve probably already seen this one. More than once, even. But I don’t care. This was my introduction to “Simon’s Cat,” and by the number of views I’d say it was everyone’s introduction. But in case you haven’t seen it, and don’t have the pleasure of having to feed a cat in the morning, enjoy!
Seriously, that’s life with a cat. Except when my cat Billie sticks her ass in my face it’s usually a whole lot closer. Because Billie ain’t got no class. And speaking of, here’s my little kätzchen.
