Stop Motion

While we're in a little movie space here, here is a delightful animation that I think you'll enjoy. I did, anyway.

Oren Lavie: 'Her Morning Elegance'


  1. Hmmmmm. Er? I think I've made this comment before. I sometimes think that I'm just a bit too simple or life's a bit too complicated.

  2. How on earth did they do that??? Methinks it took a lot of patience and a lot of talent.

  5. Ah well Geeb, one out of three.
    I think it's just meant to be a whimsical bit of fun...although the actions fitted the words of the song of course.
    It reminded me a little of the Beatles 'Another Day'.
