What? Russians agian?

What I like most about this is there's very little Russian you have to understand to get the gist of the story. Most of the jokes are physical.


This one is a bit harder to follow. Just know that it's a Gruffalo story and it all falls into place.

Subtitles, even.

Ad Lucem (Ghislan Avrillon, 2012)

Tut tut tut

So this is a thing now, that I found, looking for something else.

You all know how much I love feats of physical....whatever. So, I found this and could not help but smile.

However, I'm not up to teaching you music, crocheting, and tatting, so here's more on "tutting", which reminds me of vogueing, just on a smaller scale.


There's an old tradition at work here. I first saw this ages ago, if that says anything.

It seems silly, I'm sure, to enjoy something like this. The thing is, I like people doing something they love and--as odd as it is--this is such an easy expression of that love.

Well, I say easy...maybe, I just mean less strenuous.

I think, what it is really, is a form driven by the small screens of today. In the 80s, when it was all on TV, you captured the entire body. Now, when it's just a camera hooked up to a computer, or something caught on a phone. It's much smaller and more personal.

Oh, I'm laughing with delight. Look at that and how wonderful it is!

Oh, sure. Say it's easy. You try to follow along at home. Here's one for you: come up with a tut for this.

Ernest Borgnine RIP

There are so many Ernest Borgnine moments that I love. Escape From New York, The Wild Bunch, Ice Station Zebra, Bad Day At Black Rock. The man did not turn down a role. But the one that will always be my favorite is his performance in The Devil's Rain.

But don't get me started on his character in Disney's The Black Hole.

Godspeed Mr. Borgnine.

That's about the size

A few years ago, some random kid at a con asked me what it was all about. Apparently, his "spirit guide" had told him to ask me. I started to sing this song and a multitude of people joined in.

Hey, kid. I hope that satisfied whatever it was you were asking about. Touch base with me, huh? I want to ask your "spirit guide" some questions.

It's nice to know that though we're small
There's always room to grow...
