Obama, Sundance and short films


You know how sometimes one link leads to another…?

Well, this morning I was reading about Barak Obama’s recent New Hampshire appearance (I’m a N.H. native, so I tend to notice N.H. stories) in Salon.com…and isn’t it interesting how much attention he’s getting? I think it shows how hungry so many Americans are for a new path in this nation’s politics and policies. But I digress….

Anyway, from Salon.com, I clicked on a banner ad for the Sundance Channel…I mean, how could resist a show called “One Punk Under God”? It looked kinda interesting, but perhaps not my cuppa tea…so I clicked on a link to Sundance’s Second Life blog…and, yes, Sundance avatars (named Vincent and Maya, if you must know) will soon be appearing on a Second Life Island near you. And if you’re interested, you’re invited to tell the folks at Sundance what you’d like to see their avatars do (in a nice way, of course).

Then another Sundance link — for the “College Television Awards” — caught my eye, and ended up watching some very cool short films created by college students. My favorites were an animation, “Things That Go Bump in the Night,” and a short film, “Trojan Cow.” Check them out!
