Merry Happy

Yes, it's here. Don't really have much Christmas spirit to be spreading it around, but doing my best. Whatever you do, have a good time doing it, eat a second helping of stuffing and have another round of eggnog. 'Tis the season, after all.

14 Actors Acting

The New York Times Magazine recently created a video series named Fourteen Actors Acting as a tribute to some of Hollywood's classic screen types, to celebrate their annual Hollywood Issue. The videos are short, black and white performances by 14 actors, directed by Solve Sundsbo. The stars include Jesse Eisenberg, Natalie Portman, Michael Douglas, Matt Damon, Vincent Cassel and more.

It's a really interesting video gallery, and some of the scenes are absolutely breathtaking. The music by Owen Pallett is beautiful and really ties the whole series together. You can watch all the videos here and then let me know which one is your favourite!

Being a doodler, I love the concept of Found magazine. I'm always on the lookout for stray photos and crumpled notes, love how they allow me a personal glimpse in someone else's life. The people behind it collect all these found items and share them with the world. Isn't it a great idea? I actually laughed out loud when I saw the note above, which was found scribbled on a barf bag in a plane.

You can submit your own findings, plus you can buy their magazines and books online. For photography enthusiasts, they have a special book about found Polaroids, which goes straight to my Christmas wishlist.

So, take a moment or two to browse their site and next time you're in a supermarket, a bar or the library, keep an eye out for these tossed away treasures. They might make your day.
