Hey, I just got the message from my favourite motherventing and how cool is that?? I am thinking to myself!

An interview for Brew Drinking Thinkings has been published and you can read it yourself by following the link: Polish Blogger Talks Animation. Yes, Really. Enjoy!

Thank you very much, Fran 🙂

Mood Booster à la Electra

July 4, 2011 Leave a comment

Electra has this series on her blog which she calls Mood Booster. Every day she posts a video that’s supposed to… boost your mood for the day. And it quite often works, I must say. So in similar… mood ( 😉 ) I am posting here today a recent video from Coldplay. Not that far from animation, is it? 😉

Enjoy!

Shorts for today… With a bit of twist as even though it’s Monday and in our society of workaholics and lustful consumers it’s not the best time for patriotic feelings, I decided to post here a bit of history. The films are similar but very different in the same time.

Can you learn anything about Poland from any of them? You know, not every local piece of art must be clear and understandable for outsiders and I try to keep that in mind 🙂 Hope you’ll enjoy.

Where did Frogs and Squash come from?

May 31, 2011 Leave a comment

Very recently somebody asked me where the name of my Frogs and Squash came from. To be honest it’s such an old name (used in my Polish blog in the first instance) that I can’t even remember if it was me or P. who had invented it. But I do know I love it, hence I still stick to it 😉

Have you noticed the funny way English pubs are given names? Pipe and Gannex… The Leg of Mutton and Cauliflower… Cow & Snuffers… or simply Fox and Hounds!… Is it really funny or is it just me being a foreigner?

When I googled frogs and squash for videos, the engine came up with this in the first place. But don’t expect too much – it doesn’t match anything either 😉
