Video takes a bit longer. While you waiting for me to finish some projects, here’s a little video from the 1930s to pass the time.
This sculpture (L’Age mûr or Maturity) is one of my favorites from Camille Claudel. In its painstaking detail, you find the culmination of a life hard lived in the name of art.
Watch for yourself and see if you can tell which is which ;-D
I can’t say if this movie stands up to the passage of time. I don’t know if it can speak to children today as it once so lovingly spoke to me. I do know that there are 3 Christmas movies that consistently bring a smile to my face simply by the fond memories of family and love that company them. This movie is definitely one for me.
Bonus feature: In spite of the Rudolf reference, it is not much of a commercial film, a rare commodity even for the time.
What’s This? from The Nightmare Before Christmas
Is it a Halloween movie or is it a Christmas movie? There are strong arguments to be made for each by the film itself. However, I proposed that the question is a trick. It is neither. It is a Tim Burton movie, through and through and one that can be enjoyed no matter the season.
This song in particular never fails to remind me of the wonder I should see in the every day. Every tiny thing I take for granted in my daily life is completely exotic to someone somewhere.
