Dorian Gray teaser trailer

Sadly, doesn’t excite me as much as I feel it should AND I feel the story has “Tim Burton” written all over it so it’s a shame it’s not him but… well, have a look anyway…


A little bit of trailer love

Here I am, back blogging!

Two trailers that have really stood out over the past couple of weeks:

The Imaginarium Of Dr Parnassus aka “the one with Heath Ledger which he will no doubt win posthumous awards for come awards season” which looks simply stunning:

Where The Wild Things Are (second trailer) reminds everyone of childhood, has Spike Jonze at the directorial helm and features that awesomely perfect Arcade Fire soundtrack:

A really great trailer can do wonders for film releases, creating that all-important hype around a release. There is certainly an art behind creating a great trailer, which can sometimes lead to disappointment when the trailer is actually better than the film itself.

A little bit of food for thought…


A quick fix of nice links

trashy pin-up cups

Due to my busy-ness, here are a couple of links that I liked the look of this week…

  1. Trashy Pin-Up Art gallery over at Trendhunter
  2. Ironically amusing collection of hints & tips from trashy womens mags at the Hero of Switzerland blog
  3. Random sandwiches at insanewiches.com
  4. Nice tilt-shift time-lapse animation of a beach
  5. flickr gallery of hand drawn-on cups

Lovely!

New Salad Fingers!

“Maybe you can come and tuck me in tonight, sailor…”

Forgot how much I love this weird creature. The song at the end is amazing!

More Salad Fingers, and other assorted oddness, here…


My favourite song of the moment…

…is ‘No Kind Words’ by The Maccabees and, oh look, there is Mat Horne in the vid…


1930’s dog drama

Really creepy, really odd:


Who’s afraid of the big bad wolf?

Incredible piece of stop motion animation using photographs. With over 440k views in just 6 days, I am not the only one that loves it.


Why…

…is this the 14th most viewed video on YouTube?

Seriously, WHY?


April Fools from YouTube

Those cheeky YouTube scamps have turned the entire site upside down for one day and one day only. Click on a vid and all will be revealed…

Lovely bit of stop motion animation with cakes, fruit and vegetables…


Best use of YouTube annotations

Play Mortal Kombat through YouTube video clips. Very impressive.
