How’d You Like Them (Hallowe’en) Apples

Posted by Dirck on 26 October, 2018

I’ve mentioned before that the National Film Board was one of the underpinnings of my whole idea for the Friday Found Film. This new release is delightfully in keeping with the season.  Alas, WordPress won’t have the embedded code the NFB graciously provides, so all I can offer is a link under an enticing(?) image.

For those who like a longer audio version of their Hallowe’en creeps,  the story appears over on Pseudopod.

Today’s pen: Pelikan 120 (possibly eternal)
Today’s ink: Pelikan Brilliant Brown (drawn at intervals from a sleeping vessel)

Raise the Alarm

The Regular Job presented me with several metaphorical fires to put out today, which has eaten into my lunch break!  Thus, a late and entirely thematic Friday Film From Faraway

Friday Free Time

Posted by Dirck on 12 August, 2011

Remember back  in grade school, on a late-season Friday afternoon, when the teacher would rattle a projector into the room and spool up something only marginally educational?  The unspoken social contract ran, “I’m tired, the weekend’s nearly here, and if you little brutes can manage to not set fire to one another for the next half hour or so we can all relax a little.”  In Canada, we had the extra joy of a possible NFB cartoon.

Well, it’s Friday, and in the spirit of the teacher I never got to be, here’s a little film.  It’s in German, but the pictures are comprehensible:

For you youngsters reading this, replace “projector” with “VCR”, or for the extremely tender “DVD player” and you’re set.

Today’s pen: the threatened Wahl Bantam (which is a ridiculously small pen; I’m glad I didn’t commit to it for more than a day)
Today’s ink: Herbin’s Vert Empire
