Video Sunday – The Humans Are Dead
There was little question regarding which video to open with this week. You see, Brooke of The Brookeshelf has started doing a Video Sunday of her own which thrills me. Why? Because it means that I can find the cool stuff that she has already located and put it on my site as well. Hooray! And just last week Brooke found a video that combines two of my favorite things in this world: Flight of the Conchords and children’s novels. Observe:
It’s Lazy Sunday all over again.
With all the talk about Philip Pullman and the role of religion in His Dark Materials, it’s nice to see something like this five part interview with him conducted by Donna Freitas on Beliefnet.com. Sadly, I cannot reproduce it here, but please visit the site if you’ve ever wanted to hear Mr. Pullman speak for himself.
Just yesterday I blogged about the book release party for Sandra Boynton’s Blue Moo. If you’re interested, here’s a video where she talks about the process of making music and books. It shows a lot of classic singers from the 50s, and what they look/sound like today.
Again, thanks to The Brookeshelf for the link.
We end off-topic, as per usual. This one comes via Gregory K (currently on strike in L.A.) and it’s 100 films using 100 quotes that count down from 100 to 1. I’ve watched it three times and I’m increasingly impressed with the editing every time I see it.
