Not a film, but a video -- a YouTube channel...

This is a must see.

Story of my piracy: It all had begun with sharing, it might end in the same way.

So... a court system is going to pass up 6,000,000 (in money of some denomination) if this guy's video get viewed 200,000 times ...(Presumably to effect sufficient shame)... And this is believable why??

It sounds more to me like a reboot twist of the old forward this email to 10/20/30 friends and big company X will send you a zillion dollars scam.

I should have posted a "via" for context:

So, sure, it sounds like a scam, but as we've learned time and time again, reality is often stranger than fiction.

If you haven't heard of the Nicolas Brothers, you're in for a treat!  With none other than Gregory Hines and Maurice Hines narrating- and saying how much above them the Nicolas Brothers' skill was- and that's saying something!  A dance number that Fred Astaire himself once said was the best ever put in a movie- and this was after Singing in the Rain.  It's AMAZING!



The number only, in better quality.

Heh! Looks like it was filmed in Toronto or nearby. (Saw the "Go" train there.)

But it was a good film. One more recommendation for anyone teetering on whether to spend the 9 minutes on it.

After watching the trailer and the 1st episode (1hr.), this had me keen to spend another 8+hours watching the rest of it unfold: Making a Murderer is an unbelievable documentary

1. A film about Everything.
2. An epic and mind-bending trip through Reality at all levels.
3. An award winning independent experimental feature film in which virtually every major area of human knowledge and experience is explored. Including, but not limited to: cosmology, quantum physics, evolutionary biology, spirituality, sexuality, neurology, philosophy, and cucumber-ology. All ideas and concepts are explored in an original, entertaining, and artistic way. You’d obviously have to be a complete idiot not to see this film. It even has giraffes in it.

4. An experimental cinematic creation that defies traditional categorization. Not to be confused with either a fictional narrative or a documentary film.
5. An experience unlike any experience that has ever been experienced. Not dissimilar to the act of loading the Universe into a shotgun and firing it into your brain. See also: Mindfuck.

6.  The blissful realization of the True Nature of Reality, the Universe, and Everything. A peek behind the Cosmic Curtain to glimpse the Eternal Truth obscured by the Almost Infinite Bullshit. A bite from the Cosmic Cucumber.
 
7. The satisfaction of Hidden Desires for the Unknown Pleasures of Eternal Lust. An Existential Orgasm. No mind shall be left unblown.

We Are the Strange is an independent animated film directed by M dot Strange. It uses stop motion, CG artwork, and greenscreen effects. The film premiered on January 19, 2007 at the Sundance Film Festival.



We Are the Strange focuses on "two diametrically opposed outcasts" as they "fight for survival in a sinister fantasy world." These two outcasts are an abused woman named Blue who has a mysterious degenerative disease and a living doll named eMMM.

The two meet in the Forest of Still Life, where Blue follows eMMM to Stopmo City on a search for his ideal ice cream parlor. Upon arriving in Stopmo City, they are caught in the middle of a fierce battle between bizarre monsters, making their progress difficult. Thankfully, a hero named Rain appears and easily destroys every monster that faces him. Blue meets Rain before he partakes in an "impossible battle against the source of all that is evil in Stopmo City." During the battle, Rain, along with Ori are crushed by Him after Rain states he wants to avenge his son. When the outlook seems grim, a fist made of aluminum foil breaks through the ground and starts the final showdown between good and evil. Six alternate soundtracks and author's commentary, including soundtrack by Noise Inc. are available on the DVD. The music used in We Are the Strange Trailer has been made by chiptune artist YERZMYEY/AY-RIDERS (a cover of t.A.T.u.'s "30 Minutes") using ZX Spectrum computer.

It's very weird, twisted... dark, glitchy and... It was awesome combined with psychedelics  :-* :P

Poignant short vid using a novel animation technique: The Lost Mariner: A Beautiful Animated Short Film About Memory, Inspired by Oliver Sacks

I bailed a bit over half-way through. I don't smoke pot or pop mushrooms anymore, so... wasn't quite my cup of tea. Though I'm sure I would have enjoyed it 20 or 25 years ago.

Leopard enters Indian school; kicks ass;
http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=27d_1454936565
Leopard caption; "That'll teach you creeps to give me a failing grade in survival skills." I added this as sort of a comic relief; schools seem to be focal points for all sorts of confrontational agendas; ideologues vs. civil rights vs. ego-trips vs. you name it; India as the venue is beside the point, it could be anywhere. In spite of zero tolerance zealotry and hyped up security, schools as proper institutions of higher learning sometimes become freeforalls for the lowest common denominator, and degenerate into thuggish human law of the jungle (not that I approve; I most certainly do not). Enter the leopard, an apex brawler of great natural beauty, power, prowess, and purity of motive, onto a real school scene and suddenly all bets are off, and all the petty human bickerers are backing off. It's also nice to see the authorities didn't shoot the big cat dead, but tranquilized and relocated him as an unspeakably valuable natural resource. And by the way nobody got killed.

What I mean about the leopard's 'purity of motive' is kind of like, imagine one of those drama movies where the officer or culprit is called in for a psyche evaluation of 'Why did you do that?' or 'How do you feel about what happened?' after a physical confrontation or altercation. Imagine the shopping list of possible human responses; childhood trauma, professional or personal mental baggage, legal ramifications, personal resentments, or to what degree training played a part, or if it was a result of a misperception or misunderstanding; resulting in page after page of lengthy multifaceted endlessly convoluted human testimony, all of which may be in need of cross-verifying to weed out false motives or hidden agendas. Then instead, imagine if the adult full-on wild eight year old male leopard could talk, being asked all those psyche evaluation questions; resulting in a stunningly brief set of responses that boils down to hair-trigger jungle instincts on full-auto and describable in what amounts to 'ten words or less', none of it the least bit duplicitous or in need of second-guessing. :)
