This guy decided to set up shop in an apartment building elevator(which seems smaller than most elevators, which I think adds to the awkward feeling of some of the interviews.) He sat there for 10hrs a day for several months and filmed the various daily travelers. Its an amazingly mesmerizing experience……some of the elevator occupants are talkative, some are silent, some are happy and some are borderline full out crazytown. Its amazing how human beings seek out the need to express themselves, and when they find a captive outlet that “wants to listen”(this may even just be the absence of protesting communication) they begin to flow forward with all sorts of personal stories and info.
Heres a couple of my favies….
So pop open a soda, put your feet up and fire this bad boy up. I gaurentee you will dig it, if you dont like it I will give you a 100% refund of your money.(uuuuuuuuh…lets see….zero percent of zero…carry the one…..take away for taxes….thats still zero)
In the comic book Matt Murdock is a blind super hero who has no fear. Tommy Edison is pretty much the exact other direction, he seems to be scared of almost everything(sall good bud, me too. bird poop and burning to death aint no joke) What Tommy does have going for him is he is friggin hilarious. This guy could seriously be the poster child for the saying “turning lemons into lemon aid” check out his youtube channel if you have time, he’s got some great stories and observations on what its like living as a blind person.
Today I learned that Harry Houdini created the image below to prove to the people of the time that it was possible to alter photographic images. Harry…I think you would have liked the internet a lot….there’s some pretty zany stuff out there these days….photoshop was a pretty big game changer…
So…apparently he was a young, butch Scarlett Johansson as a lad…..makes me wonder whats gonna happen to her when shes his age…..*shudder*
My deep seething hatred of spiders is a fairly well documented issue….but on the far side of the emotional spectrum is my great love for consuming shellfish(crab, shrimp, lobsters) Today I learned that the Coconut crab is a large crustacean(that basically looks like a giant armored tarantula…the very essence of my nightmares) that lives in the tropics, spends most of its life on land, can crack coconuts with its claws, can get to be 3 feet from claw to claw and eats everything it can get its claws on. Also, when cooked its meat has a sweet coconutty flavor…..
I WILL NOT STOP UNTIL I HAVE CONSUMED YOU COCONUT CRAB….BEFORE I DIE YOU WILL BE MINE….
