A Finger, Two Dots Then Me

The video below is Trailer of 'A Finger, Two Dots Then Me', which was a simply beautiful spoken-word piece based on a popular poem by renowned modern poet Derrick Brown. The film takes a dramatic look at death, life and love through the eyes of Brown, a beat poet who has performed around the world for the last decade both as a headliner and with bands such as the Flaming Lips and the Cold War Kids. The short film won Best of the Fest at the San Jose Short Film Festival last weekend. Check it out:

Sometime in September 2011, the  Internet collectively "awwwwed" at the cuteness overload that was 8-year-old Sophia Grace Brownlee and her 5-year-old cousin Rosie dressed like little princesses, singing Nicki Minaj's hit song "Super Bass."
The adorable British girls join the ranks of Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift who've covered the song, but Sophia Grace knocked both of them out the park with her rendition. Check it out:

Cinequest 21 - Favorite Movies

There were many magnificent highlights and experiences at this year's Cinequest 21! I watched many great movies and some not so great movies, but will only discuss a couple of my favorites.
