When Video Games Attack!

Well this just caught your good ol' Cap'n by surprise...a music video that addresses the question; "What would happen if video games took over the world?"

The concept is original, the special effects are amazing, and the overall effect is just fantastic!

Sonar!

Now here's a beautiful little piece of animation...it's by Renaud Hallee who hails from Montreal. It is an amazing coming together of audio and video, and I hope you'll like it as much as I did!

My thanks to the great crew over at Cartoon Brew for turning me on to this!

Get me to the Birch on time...

Diane Birch is another fantastic singer/songwriter that your Cap'n has taken quite a shining to. Her music is unique, her voice is as pretty as a spring day, and as you can see in the video below, her sense of humor is quite playful.

By the way, the video was filmed in one continuous take, without any editing, which is darned impressive if you ask me. See if you agree:

Gita Life...

The Bhagavad Gita (Song of the Blessed Lord) is a sacred Hindu scripture. Like most all religious traditions, it has inspired much great art, and your Cap'n thinks it is unquestionably beautiful, and has decided to share it with you.

Here are a few examples to get you started, and if you would like to peruse the entire 40 piece gallery, click on over to this site to expose yourself to more of this excellent art.





Home, home on the...road?

One of my lifelong dreams is to tour America in a motor-home. Driving from horizon to horizon, going wherever my whims take me, wherever I park would be home. Of course, this will undoubtedly remain only a dream, given the price of a good R.V. Especially given what must be the insanely high price of THIS R.V., which I believe is in the 1.5 million to 2 million dollar range...















It may only look slightly impressive on the outside, but check out the interior...
















Now that's what I'm talking about! You could host a corporate board meeting in this baby, and everyone would be properly impressed. The best part is, if you ever get a flat, or need to run out for a gallon of milk, it comes equipped with it's own garage...!

Marvelous Meaghan!

I discovered Meaghan Smith about half-a-year ago, and fell instantly in love with her music. A perfect mixture of the current and the nostalgic, it sweeps you away in a spell cast by the most enchanting singer/songwriter to come along in a coon's age, and that would be a very old coon indeed!

Who is Meaghan Smith? Well...let the lady tell you herself!



That being said, here's a terrific video for her song "A Little Love"
