Paperman


disneyanimation

Introducing a groundbreaking technique that seamlessly merges computer-generated and hand-drawn animation techniques, first-time director John Kahrs takes the art of animation in a bold new direction with the Oscar®-nominated short, "Paperman." Using a minimalist black-and-white style, the short follows the story of a lonely young man in mid-century New York City, whose destiny takes an unexpected turn after a chance meeting with a beautiful woman on his morning commute. Convinced the girl of his dreams is gone forever, he gets a second chance when he spots her in a skyscraper window across the avenue from his office. With only his heart, imagination and a stack of papers to get her attention, his efforts are no match for what the fates have in store for him. Created by a small, innovative team working at Walt Disney Animation Studios, "Paperman" pushes the animation medium in an exciting new direction.

Give Me Some of That!

Edie BrickellWhile sorting some files on the hard drive today I came across GOODTIMS.AVI [31MB]. Perhaps you've heard of it. This is a music video file that was included as an "Easter Egg" of sorts, on the distribution disk for Windows 95. As hard as it is for me to believe - there is a whole generation (and then some) that have likely never seen or heard of this video. That's okay because I have probably seen this enough to make up for all of those who haven't

GoodTimes.avi features Edie Brickell & New Bohemians singing Edie's song "Good Times"- a feel good tune if ever there was one.

Good Times - Edie Brickell & New Bohemians - from Windows 95

Good Times - Lyrics
By: Edie Brickell

You don't even have to try
It comes easy for you
The way you move is so appealing
It could make me cry
Go out driving with my friends
In Bobby's big old beat up car
I'm with a lot of people then
I wonder where you are

Good times, bad times, give me some of that
Good times, bad times, give me some of that
Good times, bad times

I don't want to say goodbye
Don't want to walk you to the door
I spend a little time with you
I want a little more

Good times, bad times, give me some of that
Good times, bad times, give me some of that
Good times, bad times, give me some of that

[GoodTimes.flv]
1994 Geffen Records, Inc.


I was first introduced to Edie Brickell & New Bohemians on Saturday Night Live (Season 14, Episode 4) where they performed "What I Am"

According to SongFacts.com: ["What I Am"] got a huge bump when the band performed it on Saturday Night Live. The actor Matthew Modine and the abrasive, chain-smoking talk show host Morton Downey Jr. also appeared on the show, making it the highest-rated episode of 1988. The show is also notable as the first time Brickell met Paul Simon.

I have been searching the internet for a video from that installment of SNL but have come up empty handed. Here is their appearance on David Letterman from the same year.

Your Basic Dumplings

Dumplings

DUMPLINGS - Copyright © David Loftus
Copyright © David Loftus

Serves 6

This recipe is adapted from:
                   Jamie's Ministry of Food

Ingredients
    250 g self-raising flour (two heaping cups)
    125 g butter, really cold
(a bit less than 1/2 cup)
    sea salt
(1/4t)
    freshly ground black pepper
(1/4t)

Method

  • Preheat your oven to 190°C/375°F/gas 5 (if intending to bake)
  • Put your flour into a mixing bowl
  • Using a coarse grater, grate your cold butter into the flour
  • Add a pinch of salt and pepper
  • Using your fingers, gently rub the butter into the flour until it begins to resemble breadcrumbs
  • Add a splash of cold water to help bind it into a dough
  • Divide the dough into 24 pieces and gently roll each into a round dumpling. The dumplings will suck up quite a bit of moisture so if your stew looks dry - add a cup of boiling water and give it a good stir
  • Place the dumplings on top of your fully cooked stew and press down lightly so that they're half submerged
  • Cook in the oven or on the hob (stove) over a medium heat with the lid on for 30 minutes

For starters I'll have "Who?", "What?", "When?", "Where?", and then "Wither?", "Whence?" and "Wherefore?" to follow, and one big side order of "Why?"
