Two videos for you today:

The first is a 12min. short film called "Jo Jo in the Stars," Directed by Marc Craste. It was the winner of the 2004 Bafta for Best Animated Short Film. The description goes like this:

"A heart wrenching tale of two unlikely lovers: Jo Jo, a silver-plated trapeze artist and the nameless hero who worships her."

The second is this music video for Devendra Banhart's tune "A Ribbon," Directed by Lauri Faggioni & Michel Gondry:

we are named after She-Ra’s home
we play rough

Here is a video for their song "Alice Practice," which uses the famous dance scene in Jean Luc Godard's Vivre sa Vie. Directed by Matthew Ferguson:

Joseph Nechvatal is a post-conceptual digital artist and art theoretician who creates computer-assisted paintings using custom-created computer viruses. His work is informed and inspired by the work of Deleuze and Guattari, which makes him rad.

Here are three pieces from his Being is Difference collection:

Christine Buci-Glucksmann

Ken Goldberg meets Frank Gillette

Ebon Fisher meets G.H. Hovagimyan

Caitlin and I watched Juno.

I would recommend it.

There are funny parts and touching parts.

It has Michael Cera, Jason Bateman, and Jennifer Garner.

I like those actors.

Plus, the soundtrack is sweet.
