Valley of Dolls from Fritz Schumann on Vimeo. ~ A resident of a small Japanese village replaces residents who have moved or died with handmade dolls. How weird it would be to just stumble upon this without any context, arts and crafts zombies. Related articles Woman makes dolls to replace people in her village
More videos at Action Movie Kid ~ Talk about raising the bar for editing home movies.
Who knew that in my 40s I would get a chance to interview and write an article about a member of one my favorite bands? Certainly not me. Feature Article: Morphine’s Jerome Deupree:
Cat Raptor by We Are Camera Studio ~Context is everything.
snowtime from Иванов Вячеслав on Vimeo. ~ Beautiful (and tiny) time-lapse. Found at Colossal.
Clip by Fernando Livschitz at Black Sheep Films on Vimeo. ~ If only. Found at Colossal.
~ I am in awe that this was built in the late 1700s. And is programmable. Never mind that is still actually works.

Midnight Moment: “Eye Test” – 2×4 from AIGA/NY on Vimeo. ~ I’m seeing spots, but in a good way. This would look amazing in Times Square.
~ Today calls for some Pixies. Old and new (the new is growing on me).
JACK from Grace Jackson on Vimeo. ~ I don’t like swarms of people either, but I have no illusion that I could ever be self-sufficient and escape them like this. Beautiful story.
Django Django – WOR from Jim Demuth on Vimeo. ~ As much as I would love to witness this in person, I have to admit that I would spend the entire time with my hands over my eyes. I mean, come on, it’s actually called the “Well of Death!”

~ In honor of Government Shutdown Day, this seemed like an apt choice.
~ My kids don’t care for Sesame Street, but I’m nostalgic for that theme song. And while I’m more of a Jimmy Kimmel fan than Jimmy Fallon, this particular clip made me smile. The Roots and muppets playing simple instruments (and rapping!)? What’s not to like?
~ Convos with my Two Year Old, Season 2, Episode 1 (as I chant, “please don’t jump the shark, please don’t jump the shark”…)
Full Turn ECAL/Benjamin Muzzin from ECAL on Vimeo. ~ I’ve been meaning to link to this for a few days now. Spinning two flat panel televisions back to back at high speed creates fantastic images.

~ Hooked on this song (and now video) from Fryars.
