M dot Strange talks about “We Are the Strange”

In this video, M dot Strange, an independent film-maker/animator/YouTuber talks about his feature film We Are the Strange. The film was accepted into Sundance and he was approached by some studio about theatrical release, but he turned down the offer. In this presentation, he talks about why he decides to go the self publishing route and the power of YouTube.

I think he has very good messages in this about making your visions come true, no matter how strange or unconventional it might be. Also don’t just work within the confines of certain people’s expectations, like the big studios, and use internet wisely.

Talking Out Trauma: Not Always a Help

This article is about how talking things out might not necessarily help you deal with a problem. Personally I think the way the research is done is far from perfect or the most carefully designed, so I do not see the conclusion as something that’s strikingly significant. However, when it comes to blogging, sometimes I do wonder if it helps to rant and rant on your blog. On one hand, it might help you to get it out of your system. On the other hand, you are basically forcing yourself to relive the painful memory every time you write about it. I guess there’s two sides to everything.

Tip of the Tongue Learning

This tells us that when you are stuck on something, don’t keep dwelling on it, because you are just reinforcing the wrong notion every time you go down the wrong path.

Passive-Aggressive Notes

Hate passive-aggressive people, but love these notes!

Mac vs. PC South Park style

This is a parody of those Mac vs PC commercials. It’s done in the style of South Park. I thought they imitated the style pretty well. Oh yeah, and I’m a huge fan of South Park.

    The passive aggressive notes are so comical. I love the Mac vs. PC satire.

    @Michelle: If you don’t need to deal with passive aggressive people directly, sometimes they are actually quite amusing, because their behaviors are very childish sometimes.

    @Rubialala: Figured it out, eh? Let’s see if you still remember tomorrow! 😉
