We recently finished this short comedy about a couple guys at a BBQ who both show up wearing hats that say #1 Dad. It’s also an homage to my own dad, whose birthday was last week.
I already mentioned how much I like black and white nature photography in a post about Jeff Brown. Well, here’s Karen Glaser, with some more work depicting the underwater world of sharks and rays with beautiful, dark film grain. Old school look for old school lifeforms.
I liked the idea of broadcastr, an app that lets you record personal stories and pin them to a particular location, letting others stumble across them as they careen through cities using their iPhones like narrative-sniffing bloodhounds.
This mid-length documentary by John Rogers about British ‘deep topographer’, Nick Papadimitriou really moved me. I’ve been both intrigued by the potential of psychogeography and put off by all its obtuse, pseudo-intellectual trappings. But Nick Papadimitriou transcends the bullshit.

Stop-motion and shaving go really well together. That’s why we’ve seen a lot of great stop-motion facial hair videos in the last few years: like the guy who walked across China for a year, growing his beard, frame by frame (admittedly, the beard wasn’t really the point of the film).
