…It’s Movie Monday: Mankind Is No Island?

Mankind Is No Island

Tropfest is the world’s largest short film festival.

Founded at Sydney’s Tropicana café in 1993, it now has an attendance of over 150,000 in Australia each February, and thousands more in other cities through out the world at other local Tropfests.

This year, the $20,000 first prize at the Tropfest in New York went to a film called “Mankind Is No Island” which was shot entirely with a cell phone camera.

The music is perfect, the effect is simple yet powerful, and the end result is a very emotional film that challenges the way we look at the world.

…It’s Website Wednesday: Blah Girls?

Blah Girls

As if there was a need for another celebrity gossip blog, Ashton Kutcher’s Blah Girls is a high dollar attempt at picking up a few extra eyeballs from those that have grown tired of TMZ and their ubiquitous coverage of anything and everything celebrity related.

The site revolves around the three Blah Girls and their take on the celebrity world, and every Monday and Thursday a new animated video arrives with the latest “news”:

Will Blah Girls be the best thing to happen to the gossip world since the cell phone camera, or is this just another attempt at buying eyes with flashy design and a well-known name?

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
