Valentine's Day seems to be the day on which the majority of my acquaintance gets all emo for one reason or another, so I thought I would post a really cool animation which is also one of the strangest and most disturbing things I've ever seen. It's, um, not emo. Might be more appropriate, in its way, for Easter, though. (No, still not then. Not appropriate for anything, probably.)

To clean your brain (and for a real Valentine present), check out the teaser trailer for Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull. (via [livejournal.com profile] beatnikside.)


You have [livejournal.com profile] beatnikside to thank. (Or to blame for the double post, in a few cases.) I love the style of this video, along with all the little quirks its characters show.

I think I have now used some form of the word "quirk" twice in the last ten minutes... it's time to pack it in!
The pop-up scrolling thumbnail menu has lots of other excerpts, which should give you a pretty good idea of why this movie is widely regarded as both creepy and awesome. Also, watch this for extra credit.
A bit NSFW - there's some artistic nudity and suggestive scenes. About 10 minutes long, made a little over 10 years ago. Mesmerising, though! It's the story, told backwards (like Betrayal or Memento), of a murdered tycoon and his much younger wife in the late 1920s. Each scene is set in a different location, and the animation style for a given scene is dictated by the style of the illustration on a luggage label.
