Anyone else like watching Doctor Who? What do you think of the new Doctor? I'm reserving my opinion until the next week's episode, which looks like the new companion Amelia Pond will be spending the hour doing an impersonation of Arthur Dent (ie. wondering around the universe in a robe and pyjamas). But so far, it looks like the Eleventh Doctor is modelled after the Fifth Doctor, my favourite Doctor.
Since it's now April, the new theme for Cinema Tuesdays shall be How-To movies. So check back tomorrow for the origins of Mad Men!

Over the past month or so Lily and the Muse has been posting a lot of stop motion short films. I love stop motion shorts and the first one that I ever saw as a child was Neighbours made by Norman McLaren in 1952 and it won an Oscar. Norman McLaren was an experimental animator and film maker who worked for the National Film Board of Canada. I saw a retrospective of his work at the Film Festival a couple of years ago and it was lovely to actually see his films on the big screen instead of the television, but if you type in his name on YouTube, you can spend several happy hours marvelling at his sheer inventiveness.
