Mo Than Words Can Say

Burt Reynolds, hero

Now I truely missed this year's Movember, the month formerly known as November. Just as last year thousands of dedicated males have their mo (=mustache) grow to it's full glory within a month.

These are the rules: on Movember 1st you shave and then let your mo grow until the end of the mo-nth. Growing a beard and shaving it to a mo at the end of the month is considered as cheating. Instead it must be an honest mo through and through with a clean shaven chin. A mo with dignity, one that Burt Reynolds, His unapproachable Mo-ness, would be proud of.

For cowards: Grow a virtual mo!
For undecided ones: Study the mo!
For real men: Celebrate the mo!


Wow. Barack Obama's victory is a brilliant day in history. I am glad that he won with a significant lead which will hopefully keep the tensions between supporters of both parties lower. Obama will have to deal with a massive limitation of damage that his country suffered during the 'Bush era' in terms of it's international reputation – but to me he is the candidate with the by far biggest potential to give back credibility in the United States on an international stage. The only positive thing left to say about Bush is that his miserable leadership was probably necessary to make a victory like Obama's possible. It has been a long time since I could last say that I am looking forward to what will happen next in the US.

Guano in 3D

A couple of excerpts from a rare interview (MP3 file, 32 minutes) with independent animator Don Hertzfeldt ( on Scene Unseen Podcast.

Don Hertzfeldt on progress:

"I feel like I'm constantly learning and I think that's the key to keep making new stuff because I think the moment you think you know everything you kind of turn into an asshole and I would think the process is not as much fun any more."

Don Hertzfeldt on Computer Graphics (CG) and traditional animation:

"First of all I don't want to sound anti CG because I'm not. It's just an amazing set of tools. The cool thing about animation is you can literally do anything. It's technically speaking the purest form of film-making because you are literally working one frame at a time, sometimes working with your hands on every single frame of the picture. So you're free to do anything. Anything you can imagine you can put on film which you can never do in live action. So it's just really stupid and ironic to me that with all this amazing new technology here we can push the boundaries of cinema, we can change the language of cinema – they're trying to just get towards photo realism.
