"Buddha told a parable in sutra:

A man traveling across a field encountered a tiger. He fled, the tiger after him. Coming to a precipice, he caught hold of the root of a wild vine and swung himself down over the edge. The tiger sniffed at him from above. Trembling, the man looked down to where, far below, another tiger was waiting to eat him. Only the vine sustained him.

Two mice, one white and one black, little by little started to gnaw away the vine. The man saw a luscious strawberry near him. Grasping the vine with one hand, he plucked the strawberry with the other. How sweet it tasted!"
wow! this shows how important the storyboard, characterizations, directing and music are to a film
the sun is incredible; we understand so little about it. this is a beautiful short film of a raw view of our sun
IMO, this is one of the best pieces of film of all time... and increasingly relevant. Watch now.

cool, and besides, the next generation of kids won't see why we thought this was "slightly scandalous" :)

a little obscure... but who can resist the unbridled enthusiasm of leeeeeeroyyyy jennnnkinnnns! :)
