Here’s some festive videos I’ve enjoyed over the year. I hope you enjoy them, too! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
The poor recording, the echoing acoustics, the shuffling chairs, the clash of plates, the rustic den ambience… All of it set against the incredible voice and guitar picking of one Mr. Brian Ekard covering the legendary Gordon Lightfoot and pulling it off exceptionally well.
Sucker Punch was derided on release as not much more than lurid fantasy but if you watch closely you’ll find a much better story than you ever thought was in this movie. This video will help you see it.
You probably don’t understand Full Metal Jacket, like me, unless you’re very clever or you’ve watched this excellent video analyzing the film: Jung’s influence is revealed in full contrast here.
A Wisecrack classic, this video dives into what’s really going on with Tolkien’s philosophy as he crafts Lord of the Rings: “Tolkien envisioned the End of History, as being likewise eucatastrophic; that though history would be nothing more than “the long defeat,” it would ultimately have a happy ending as unexpected as the eagles arriving at Mount Doom.”
Wisecrack was back in form with this video to take a look at what infamous director, Rian Johnson, was trying to do and where he was trying to take the franchise. It doesn’t try to excuse what Rian did but it does show that Rian Johnson was thinking deeper things directing Star Wars than we might give him credit for.
This incredible 50-episode series recreates the Anne of Green Gables books in vintage, beautiful Ghibli-style Japanese anime.
A very good question to ask was asked on Twitter: Do you believe in God/a higher power? Please provide reasoning below.
I’ve been trying to find the right gloves with the right balance of convenience, feel, grip, robustness, and quality of make. I chose fingerless because I still want the ease of typing while wearing the gloves. I’m not sure I’ve found the perfect pair yet but I think I’ve found some good ones and at good prices, too.
This page is for adults living with adult cleft lip and palate and all the frustration, pain, and grief that goes along with that. While searching online, I found most resources were largely targeted to or populated by expecting parents, while very few helpful resources existed for adults. It’s almost like people think cleft lip and palate individuals live life normally after childhood. This page is for the people who know what it’s actually like.
