Random Thursday: Random Inspiration

Random Thursday (ˈrandəm ˈTHərzdā): the day on which Sarah plunks down all the odd bits and pieces she’s been sent by friends or has otherwise stumbled upon this week in an effort to avoid writing a real post, the assembly of which usually ends up taking twice as much time as sitting down and creating actual content.

I have an interview on Wednesday.

I’m halfway there!



Jane told me about this video, crying
because she thought the poor Kiwi was making a slingshot or something
and it hadn’t worked.

I explained what he was trying to do
and we watched it again, together.

“Oh,” she said. “Oh!”

She’s convinced that he was smart enough to have thought of a big pillow at the bottom.

I’m convinced that even if he didn’t, the little guy thought it was totally worth it.


Which came First?

If you think about this too long, it gets way Meta.

Can we do this?

Let’s do a Kickstarter.

So, these three students didn’t.

  1. Kiwi’s an oldie. I saw it years ago and it knocked my socks off. Nice to see it again. It’s still every bit as good as I remembered.

    On another note, I’m disappointed that none of the birds are pooping on Alfred, a la High Anxiety.

    • How do you fall (pun intended) on the pillow question?

      Hitchcock had opinions about birds, didn’t he? I’d love to see your version as a doodle, Mike! 😀

      • If there was a pillow, the filmmaker would have shown it — and the film would have suffered as a result.
        The reason why I love the cartoon so much is because it is so poignant.

        The tear gives it away. Sure, I guess it could be the wind making the kiwi’s eyes water, but I think it far better represents the joy of achieving one’s life’s work.

        As for doodles, I kind of remember you agreeing to be part of a Facebook-based pay-it-forward initiative, yes? 🙂

        Send me an email, ‘kay?

  2. Unfortunately, I’d probably spend all my time on the procrastination patio. If I could manage to hang out in the brainstorm rotunda, it might actually be productive.
    For some reason, I always thought that was Alfred’s creepiest movie. I still cringe every time a bird gets too close.
