The Girl and the Mouse

A poem I wrote.


Lost in the world, wandering about,
The girl sat down, and with a pout,
Said “why am I here, and what’s it about?”
Said a tiny mouse, “why do you shout?

“The world is a big place, and one can get lost,
But there is no need to travel across,
The length of it, and try to make sense,
Of all that is seen, and of all events.

“I take what I see, and I think about it,
Some I understand, and some I’ll never get.
But that’s okay, what’s the hurry?
Just have some fun, no need to worry.”

The girl thought for a while about what was said,
Did the mouse really talk, or was it in her head?
She looked around, but the mouse was gone,
Standing up, she smiled, and she walked on.

The Japan World Cup

It starts out as a fairly normal horse race, and then gets odd.



And then gets really odd.



The official Japanese site www.jra-jwc.jp appears to be a site where you can bet on the winner of the race. If only real life horse racing was this interesting!

Star Wars: The Empire Goes on Vacation

Where does the Empire like to take their vacations at? San Francisco, of course!



From: swarby

For those interested in how I made it:

I shot the background video on a 1/3-chip DV camera (TRV25). The Star Wars vehicles are either 2D stills found on the internet, or video I roto-scoped out of the movies, which I then motion-tracked and composited in After FX. I used the trapcode particular plug-in for some steam and smoke effects, and did basic sound design and assembly in Final Cut.

Riding the Train

I would ride ride the train more often, if it had such happy people on it.



That group is a little talkative. Maybe this group would be a little more mellow.



Whatever happens, make sure they do not bother the train engineer, so he can pay attention to driving the train!
