Puttin’ on a Little Dog, inspired by silent film actress Marie Prevost (1898-1937), is a lovely short video by Charles Eadie.
Features a performance by “Jasper”, a cameo by me (as Prevost), and clips from The Godless Girl (1928). Music from “On an Overgrown Path” by Leoš Janáček.

In the nameless midwest a puppy encounters a force he doesn’t understand.
Music: “Evil Ball” by Sinoia Caves
This is the story of a snake, a bear, and a little girl. Three great friends living together on the forested slopes beneath a mountain. There is a glade within the forest. Evergreens surround the meadow-grass, fireweed, and bee balm. The mountain’s snowcap is visible on clear days. Warmed by the sun, the three friends lay in a lazy pile near a broad, flat boulder. The bear licks the bottoms of the girl’s bare feet. The coiled snake dozes on the boulder. Summer is over but the days remain pleasant.
but that’s me all over.
“The bees make it,” noted Andrew. He knew I’d dig the bees.
Also, the upright rabbit kind of reminds me of Andrew.
Humunga Stache Durable Dog Toy. Go indognito to the park with this fun toy! For the pooch with a good sense of humor; this shiny black toy is a ball on one end and a giant cartoon mustache on the other. Dogs naturally pick up the ball leaving an outrageously funny mustache sticking out! Dogs also love to hold the ball in their mouth and shake the mustache back and forth! Get your pup a stache today!!

And like a true fashionista, the green Eclectus parrot throws a tantrum if he is forced to change – stamping his feet, flapping his wings and squawking.

Daily problems that come with living in Oymyakon include pen ink freezing, glasses freezing to people’s faces and batteries losing power. Locals are said to leave their cars running all day for fear of not being able to restart them.
Even if there was coverage for mobile phone reception the phones themselves would not work in such cold conditions.

Stereogum has a post on the ten best Morrissey songs, but it’s also the ten best pictures of Morrissey with cats. Not sure I agree with the list, but who cares? There’s no point in debating whether “Seasick, Yet Still Docked” measures up to “I Know It’s Over”, and they didn’t count Smiths songs in there, anyway.
I didn’t know this when I started this blog, but apparently I make GIFs. Most of them are of wildlife and things I find funny or interesting.
Although there are probably too many images of ladybugs expressing physical love, you should take a look. I didn’t link any of the site’s images here because, you know, GIFs can make you go a little insane after a while.
Well, I guess it’s okay if I put some below the fold:
Miss McRobert asked: “This started because he tried to feed the horses, what were your concerns for the horses?”
The witness replied: “It would harm them if it went in to their digestive system, they can be sick, it can give them the likes of Colic.”
Miss McRobert asked: “It can be fatal?”
PC Coulter replied: “It can, yes.”

Also, ravens are way cool. I never met a corvid I didn’t like.
They’re clever. And they play in the snow.
Plus, The Ravens was the name The Kinks had before they were The Kinks.
