Short Film: Sharing Joy (& my Laugh)

"Damn it, you are  the personification of happiness! Your laugh is pure joy and you can't even imagine how much I love and count on this daily laugh of yours."

PS. For the record, my laugh is really funny, its sound it's the suction's one. So, duh, it's darn good!

Now back to studying.

Not a Happy Halloween Post

(That's a little bloody, but it's the gift paper of my "Happy Halloween, ho ho ho!" )

Yesterday was Halloween. And you were all happy and excited, so I didn't want to be the bad guy. But how about today? We don't celebrate Halloween here in Greece and I think that that's unfair. At least not this time of the year. Our dress up-Halloween period is in February. However, we don't have rainbows made of carved pumpkins or ghosts everywhere. Girls dress like sexy kittens, sexy doctors, sexy tigers and sexy sexies and boys go for the I-wore-a-blonde-wig-and-some-fake-boobs-and-I-am-funny-now. If you are dressed up and you seem like a disgusting or scary-something you are a psycho. Nobody wants to look like not-fake/perfect anymore. Anyway, I am still here in front of a pc having ton of work to do. For the record ( and for you who asked why I am so absent the last month ), I analyze some mice behavior under stressful conditions. Biology studies are good.

Statistical Impossibilities: Short Film

Some days, like today, I need an animation good enough like this to remind myself that there is life too outside the neurobiology-lab. That life is nice and science is full of statistical impossibilities that wait for you to explain them, while you are spliting some blood too. Anyway, this little video is an example of the animation art at its bestests!

Out of a Forest

♫ ♪ Joe Hisaishi - One summer's day

 

(Scroll down for translation =)

Νομίζω δεν μπορώ να συντάξω σωστά ούτε μια πρόταση από την κούραση. Δεν κρατιέμαι όμως να μοιραστώ μαζί σας ένα βίντεο που ανακάλυψα τις προάλλες, μια καταπληκτική δουλειά του Tobias Gundorff Boesen!

Σε λίγο θα πέσω για ύπνο και θα ονειρευτώ. Θα ονειρευτώ σε καταπράσινα λιβάδια μέχρι εκεί που φτάνει το μάτι σου, την μυρωδιά της κομμένης χλόης , σημάδια βρεγμένου χώματος στα παντελόνια μου, κυνήγι βατράχων στο ρέμα, λουλουδοκουκλάκια, τον άνεμο να παίζει με τα φύλλα των δέντρων, τις τελευταίες ακτίνες τις ημέρας, τις μυστηριώδεις σκιές των δέντρων, τα τρομακτικά πλάσματα της νύχτας, τον φόβο της μοναξιάς, τον μονόλογο της κουκουβάγιας, τον χορό των πυγολαμπίδων, βραδυνό στην αυλή, οικογενειακές φωτογραφίες και την αντανάκλαση των φαναριών μέσα στο ποτήρι μου! Πρέπει να φύγω όμως τώρα, τα όνειρά μου δεν μπορούν να περιμένουν άλλο!

Περίμενω να το δείτε και εσείς και να μου πείτε την γνώμη σας!

Today it seems, I can't compose one single proper sentence. But I can not wait to share with you a video that I discovered the other day, an amazing work from Tobias Gundorff Boesen!

Soon i will sleep and i  will (i hope that i ) dream. I will dream of green pastures as far as your eye can reach, the smell of swan grass, wet soil marks on my pants, hunting frogs in the stream, flower puppets, the wind playing with the leaves of trees, the last rays of the day, the mysterious shadows of the trees, the terrifying creatures of the night, the fear of loneliness, the monologue of the owl, the dance of the fireflies, dinner in the courtyard, family photos and the reflection of the lights in my glass! I must go now, my dreams are waiting for me!
