What if your hometown ceased to exist?

The National Film board of Canada has put together this mesmerizing, sometimes heartbreaking yet celebratory memorial to a mining town in Canada that was once a vibrant community and now no longer exists: Most industry towns, after losing their purpose, attempt resurrections, reinventions, or just slowly wither away. In Pine Point, they decided to erase [...]

If Filmmakers Directed the Super Bowl

This is brilliant, and I don’t even watch football (although I would if David Beckham played and they got rid of all the clothing). (via Metafilter)

Love is blind

(While Jon and I take some time to unwind on a beach very far away, I’m reposting some content from my archives. This one was originally published on November 20, 2006.) “Stop looking at it.” “I’m not looking at it.” “Yes you are. I’m looking at your eyes right now, and they’re looking directly at [...]

With a side of ibuprofen

It started last week when Leta’s tummy ache transformed into three huge heaves of orange Gatorade puke all over my lap. Then Marlo got diarrhea two days later. The following morning Chuck puked six times, once on the most expensive piece of furniture in our house. No, dogs can’t catch the flu, BUT PLAY ALONG [...]
