JCB Song Music Video

I don't usually write posts about music videos, but they are in fact turning out to be one of the most vital and imaginative areas for animation. This video was animated with Flash software by Laith Bahrani for a band named Nizlopi. It's about a boy traveling the roads with his dad in an earth mover. It's a wonderful song and the animation is full of a gentle kind of humor and affection that is awfully difficult to find anywhere in animation on the Internet. I love the way things just keep gently sliding by the field of vision, everything always in tune with the music. Perfect work.

Godzilla Movie Online for Free Viewing

Halloween's coming soon and we thought it might be time to get into the spirit of things with a good horror movie. This is the original 1954 Godzilla from Japan. It's got a great monster and an excellent sound track. It's the best version of the story there is. Have fun watching it in our DramaCast area where we'll post more great horror movies over the coming weeks.

Global Warming is Wiping out Polar Bears

Here are links to several articles about just how bad the global warming situation is for the Arctic. Scientists now believe that most of the world's polar bear population will be wiped out as Arctic ice vanishes.

"Warming Is Seen as Wiping Out Most Polar Bears," Sep 7, New York Times

"Ice-free Arctic could be here in 23 years," Sep 5, in The Guardian

"Arctic ice cap to melt faster than feared, scientists say," Sep. 7, Seattle Times

Here's more information on Global Warming from Candlelight Stories.

Thank you BoingBoing for posting about these articles. Polar bear picture from Ukumari's Fickr photo set.
