This has got to be my favourite “National Film Board” movie of all time. What was meant as a somewhat serious short film on common domestic accidents and how to prevent them has quickly became our favourite funny movie as kids. To be fair, they do also advertise the movie as an hilarious documentary on their website.
Here is a snippet from the ONF:
This hilarious animated film communicates over forty safety tips for homes with infants and young children. The film’s hero is a very earnest, somewhat pompous, but endearing dog called Wally. A “professional” in home safety, Wally is assigned to a house with an infant whose parents have little safety consciousness. Accidents and near-accidents succeed each other with lightning speed, constantly putting Wally to the test. This comic film will help viewers of all ages become “home-safety smart.” For parents, babysitters, and the elementary school classroom.
It’s refreshing to see a well structured and intelligible interview with a politician during this whole campaign. it’s nice to see that even a republican can see how cheap some of the comments from their party have been. Not to mention that they’ve blatantly lied on so many things about Obama. I mean, to even hint at the fact that Obama may be a terrorist… I mean please! That is just not the way Americans (or anybody) should act. Not with the many ways we have to inform ourselves these days. It sometimes seems like we are watching kids at elementary school… Not that it matters a whole lot, being a Canadian and all, but I would totally endorse Obama as well! Good for Powell to say so on National TV. Go and vote for Obama!
I reluctantly upgraded my WordPress installation yesterday night. I say reluctantly because, for some reason, even after having upgraded from 2.2 to 2.3.3 a while back, i thought that this was going to be a long and painful process. I once again was able to upgrade my whole installation, including backup of all my files, in less than 30 minutes. I followed the great Three Step Upgrade from the wordpress folks! I will not wait as long as I just did before upgrading next time. The design of the 2.6 version is awesome and was definitively worth the 30 minutes spent on the upgrade. I can’t wait for great new things that the next version promises. Good work wordpress!
