“The closer he looks at the child, the less he sees … The more he looks at it, there’s nothing there. He fears that the more you look at him the less you see. There isn’t anything there.” — John Hughes
I’m watching The Voice. I don’t even know why. It makes good background noise for homework. And I’m a week behind…
I am so glad Erin Martin is off the show. She was horrible. She basically ripped off actually talented musicians in order to mask her horrible voice. Her performances were so clichéd and fake. And she’s so conceited. Look what she said (about her elimination):
“I think it was a good lesson for Cee Lo in this particular instance that, you know, when you come across a voice like mine, you have to really nurture it and he wasn’t the right person to do that,” she said. “No offense to him, it just, he wasn’t… I’m the right person to nurture my voice.”
First book I ever cried reading.
Heartwarming short film of the day: “Caine’s Arcade”
Nine year old Caine made his incredibly detailed arcade using boxes from his dad’s used auto parts store. He hadn’t had many customers, so Nirvan Mullik set up a fun flashmob to make his day, and filmed his response.
Grinned through that whole video.
I haven’t done much reblogging (or much of anything) lately. What I have been doing is watching so much Mad Men. I am way excited for Sunday guys. So be prepared for lots of wonderful photospam.
Handmade Short of the Day: “Fine”: The story of the birth, life, and death of a soldier, as told through painted hands.
Says director Virgilio Villoresi: “[B]oth the initial and final soundtrack, as well as the military salute of the last scene are a homage to Jiri Trnka’s masterpiece The Hand.”
