'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.

    Isn't he? And look how the kids love him! I bet he tastes like one of those red candy apples when you lick him long enough.
