Video Monday: Martin Luther King, Jr

January 16, 2012

Video Mondays

On March 28, 1965, Martin Luther King, Jr. appeared on NBC’s Meet The Press. 

One week after leading his historic five-day march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, King said that the demonstration was necessary not just to help push the Voting Rights Bill through, but to draw attention to the humiliating conditions in Alabama such as police brutality and racially-motivated murder.

Video from NBC.

Video Monday: Murmuration

Murmuration from Sophie Windsor Clive on Vimeo.

Murmuration: n. a flock of starlings.

You’ve probably seen this already, but if not… You’re in for a treat.  I spotted it again the other day and couldn’t resist.

(It’s kinda sad, but when I first saw this I flatly decided it was fake, sure it was clever CG. Nope.)

Working Wednesday: Studio Mind Castle’s Creative Process…

Enjoy this little video the design studio production company Mindcastle made of creating their holiday card a few years ago.

Impressive, right?

Does your business send out holiday cards? I know that’s something everyone is supposed to do. But unfortunately, I never seem to get it together with all the other craziness going on.

I’m thinking Valentines Day cards instead…

Marcell The Shell With Shoes On

Have you met “Marcel The Shell With Shoes On”? (By Dean Fleischer-Camp and Jenny Slate.) Somehow I missed him the first go round, you know, when he became an internet sensation. But once I stumbled on the latest video I jumped on board:

Gah! So good.

He has a book now too!

 

Video Monday: The Goodwin Project

Have you heard of The Goodwin Project?

A young family leaves their home on Kauai…It is what they will learn, what they bring others, what they will pass on to their children in the hyper-expanded classroom, the lab of direct being; a legacy passed from a father to his family.

…Together with a small film crew the Goodwins will document how they are changed by their travels, and the effect they have on their acquaintances, hosts, friends and ticket agents as they circumnavigate our planet, through 18 countries and four seasons. This is the story of their encounters with the world.

They step into the current faithfully, inquisitively, boldly and with good will.

I’m fairly certain I couldn’t live like this. Which is a little bit sad to me. I love traveling, but I’m pretty sure my little homebody-self would have a hard time being so untethered. But I love that other people can embrace a life of adventure. It seems like a magical way to raise a family.

Who knows? Maybe some day I’ll get to prove myself wrong…

Have you seen Shawn Gilheeney’s work?  He does huge painted installations of predominantly urban ruins, that are just beautiful.

His work explores the “theory of entropy, [and how] things are constantly de-evolving.” You can see more here.

*Is it Tuesday already? Oops, yes this post is late. But for history’s sake I’m backdating this to yesterday.

Did you spend all weekend working and not making an awesome Halloween costume? Adam Sandler to the rescue. Remember this?

Happy Halloween everybody.

Video Monday: Being Elmo

The whole Elmo phenomenon was after my time. And I think because I didn’t grow up with him as a muppet, I find the whole obsession a bit annoying. (Everyone knows Grover is the best muppet.)

However, Being Elmo looks like the sweetest movie. It might even turn me into a fan after all.

Ooh Pixar’s upcoming “Brave” looks wonderful.

And I’m not just saying that because I have a thing for gingers.
