Video Sunday: Politics and Poker (50 points for anyone who gets the reference)
Last week’s videos were just so fabulous that I have to admit I haven’t much for you this week. So when video times are tough I like to turn to the Drawn blog for inspiration. This piece is a combination of stop animation with pixelated cut-out images by a Joseph Mann. For me it highlights the importance of good sound quality in any video.

Politics. There’s no escaping it. Now the group Authors & Illustrators for Children has tossed its hat into the ring, supporting one of the two candidates. I’ll give you three guesses who it is and the first two don’t count.
Thanks to Jen Bryant for the link.
Speaking of politics, the other day Matt and I were surfing the web looking for a good three-minute encapsulation of the last presidential debate. What we found instead was this.
Eerie, ain’t it? The more things change the more they stay the same. Thanks to The Daily Dish for the link.
And for our random but fun video of the week, observe the awesome power of the 7-year-old spinner. About the time she starts using the drop spindle I’m in utter awe. I still can’t get the hang of those damnable objects.
Thanks to Mom for the link.
