Weekend Video: Stop Motion Magic

As always, in my Weekend Video post I try to upload some of the most creative, innovative and beautiful videos created by independent artists or group of artists. This weekend there are three videos, all of them using stop motion technique. The first film is called “Sorry I’m Late” by Tomas Mankovsky. It’s a stop motion film shot with a stills camera in the ceiling pointing straight at the floor. It’s just amazing and I  can’t imagine how much time and effort it would have taken filming this video. You can also take a look at some making of videos on his website Sorry I’m Late.

The second video is titled ” A short love story in stop motion”. Carlos Lascano created this video and tells a beautiful love story a little girl dreams of.  The video description says “A couple of pencil-outlined birds escape from a little girl´s drawing, leading us through the life she dreams of.” Real objects and hand drawings were used in creation of this video to give it more organic look. You can read more about how the video was made at his webpage .

The third video titled ” The Sandpit” is a creation of Sam O’Hare. He shot 35,000 stills of New york city from rooftops and balconies of houses in course of 5 days and created a miniature version of the city. To know more about what camera and lens he used visit this page .

Have a nice weekend!!

Demetri Martin Quotes

Fractals loving Demetri Martin is one of my favorite stand up comedian. His jokes, one liners, big drawing pad, music, sketches all are very intelligent, hillarious and very unique. I attended one of his performances in Univ of Florida last year and it was just amazing. To brighten your day, here are few of his quotes and videos from his comedy central show ” Important Things with Demetri Martin”.

  • “I wonder what the most intelligent thing ever said was that started with the word ‘dude.’ ‘Dude, these are isotopes.’ ‘Dude, we removed your kidney. You’re gonna be fine.’ ‘Dude, I am so stoked to win this Nobel Prize. I just wanna thank Kevin, and Turtle, and all my homies.’”
  • “I think that when you get dressed in the morning, sometimes you’re really making a decision about your behavior for the day. Like if you put on flipflops, you’re saying: ‘Hope I don’t get chased today.’ ‘Be nice to people in sneakers.’”
  • “‘Sort of’ is such a harmless thing to say. Sort of. It’s just a filler. Sort of – it doesn’t really mean anything. But after certain things, sort of means everything. Like after ‘I love you’ or ‘You’re going to live’ or ‘It’s a boy.’”
  • “I feel stupid when I write the word banana. Its like, how many na’s are on this thing? ‘Cause I’m like ‘Bana … keep going. Bananana … damn.’
  • “About a month ago I got a cactus. A week later, it died. I was really depressed because I was like ‘Damn! I am less nurturing than a desert.’
  • “I like when good things happen to me, but I wait two weeks to tell anyone because I like to use the word ‘fortnight.’”
  • “I like video games, but they’re really violent. I’d like to play a video game where you help the people who were shot in all the other games. It’d be called ‘Really Busy Hospital.’”
  • “I went into a deli and got an egg sandwich and a hot chocolate. And then I went outside and I had to get a cab, so I had to put up one of my hands. But I already started eating my sandwich; I took it out of the bag, I was impatient. So my choice was hold up an egg sandwich or hold up a hot chocolate to get a car. So I chose the hot chocolate. And I put it up there and no cab stopped and I realized it was because I looked like I was toasting traffic. Standing on the street, ‘Here’s to you guys, to everybody heading west, I just wanna say I like what you do… but one of you needs to stop, pick me up.’”
  • “I noticed that there are no B batteries. I think that’s to avoid confusion, cause if there were you wouldn’t know if someone was stuttering. ‘Yes, hello I’d like some b-batteries.’ ‘What kind?’ ‘B-batteries.’ ‘What kind?!?’ ‘B-batteries!!!’ and D-batteries that’s hard for foreigners. ‘Yes, I would like de batteries.’”
  • “A drunk driver is very dangerous. So is a drunk backseat driver if he’s persuasive. ‘Dude make a left.’ ‘Those are trees…’ ‘Trust me.’
  • “I wrapped my Christmas presents early this year, but I used the wrong paper. See, the paper I used said ‘Happy Birthday’ on it. I didn’t want to waste it so I just wrote ‘Jesus’ on it.”
  • Lines – Adding Lines

  • “My favorite fruit is grapes. Because with grapes, you always get another chance. ‘Cause, you know, if you have a crappy apple or a peach, you’re stuck with that crappy piece of fruit. But if you have a crappy grape, no problem – just move on to the next. ‘Grapes: The Fruit of Hope.’”
  • It was my friend’s birthday and I was mad at him, so I sent him a card. It said happy birthday, but I put quotes around the word “Happy”… sarcastic birthday, douchebag.
  • I was on the street. This guy waved to me, and he came up to me and said, “I’m sorry, I thought you were someone else.” And I said, “I am.”
  • “Batteries are the most dramatic object. Other things stop working or they break, But Batteries… They Die. ‘Why aren’t you listening to your walkman?’ ‘I can’t. My Batteries died in my lap this morning… They were so young. The twins are gone.’
    If you’re a battery, you’re either working or you’re dead… It’s a shit life.”
  • “I saw a door onetime that said “Exit Only.” So I entered it, and I went up to the guy working there and said, “I have some good news. You have severely underestimated this door here. By like 100%, man.”
  • “I bought a clock and then the big hand broke off it. I didn’t want to through it away, so I just added -ish to every number.”

Scrubs Memorable Quotes

Some memorable quotes from my favorite TV series Scrubs. Just love it’s slapstick comedy, lovable characters, subtle seriousness wrapped inside all those jokes and most of all, the soundtrack.

  • The truth is, it is all your memories, the joyful ones and the heartbreaking ones that make up who you are as a person
  • I don’t believe in the moon. I think it’s just the back of the sun.
  • There comes a time when every man needs to make a choice, whether it’s a professional choice or whether it’s a personal choice. In the end, it’s about integrity, and it’s about chasing after what you really want, even if that means showing you both care a little. And sometimes… well, sometimes you just have to do what’s right for your friend, even if it means sacrificing your own happiness. When it comes down to it, you just have to be proud of the decision you make.
  • I don’t think people are meant to be by themselves. That’s why if you actually find someone you care about, it’s important to let go of the little things, even if you can’t let go all the way. Because nothing sucks more than feeling all alone, no matter how many people are around.
  • Every time you take a big risk in your life, no matter how it ends up, you’re always glad you took it
  • You can never let go of the kid inside of you.You see, it’s the kid inside of us that keeps us all from going crazy
  • I miss you so much it hurts sometimes.
  • Love is mainly about pushing chocolate covered candies and, y’know, in some cultures, a chicken. You can call me a sucker, I don’t care, because I do believe in it. Bottom line is: it’s couples who are truly right for each other wade through the same crap as everybody else, but the big difference is they don’t let it take them down. One of those two people will stand up and fight for that relationship every time. If it’s right, and they’re real lucky, one of them will say something.
  • It’s hard trying to figure out how to reach somebody. I guess the only thing to do is to think of someone that I look up to and remember how they first got through to me.
  • There are a few things I’ve always believed in. Flowers are good for any occasion. And nothing is more important than making time for an old friend, especially if the old girl has seen better days. Because even if it breaks your heart to be “just friends,” if you really care about someone, you’ll take the hit.
