'It is through Art, and through Art only, that we can realise our perfection;
through Art, and through Art only, that we can shield ourselves from the sordid perils of actual existence.'

(Oscar Wilde in: The Critic as Artist, 1891)

Broken Boy Soldier - The Raconteurs' new video featuring an adorable squirrel with a hazelnut cannon AND an armadillo. Yes! Directed by the incredible Madame Sigismondi, produced by Revolver Film Company.

Us - One of my favourite Regina Spektor videos which I thought I had posted here before. But obviously not. Directed by the lovely Adria Petty.

Samson - Another Spektor song. Directed in M.C. Escher style by Peter Sluszka (who was Director of Animation for Us), produced by Hornet Inc.
