"What’s your favorite thing about your mother?"
"She loves life more than anyone I’ve ever known. I hope she doesn’t mind me telling you this, but recently she’s had some health problems. And her health got so bad at one point, she called me and said: ‘I was starting to wonder if there was any reason to go on. But then I had the most delicious pear!’"
This too <3
"Learning how to die is therefore learning how to live"
- Philip Seymour Hoffman
"Was I happy? Or was I just not aware?"
Got a case of the post-holiday-weekend Tuesdays? The Smithsonian’s National Zoo Asian small-clawed otters wrote this little ditty to cheer you up.
The keyboard is part of the Zoo’s enrichment program: activities designed to allow animals to demonstrate their species-typical behavior, to allow them exercise control or choice over their environment and to enhance their well-being. While they most likely wouldn’t encounter a keyboard in the wild, the activity engages their sight, touch and hearing senses.
THIS IS IMPORTANT. They’re otters. PLAYING A KEYBOARD.
"The college admission process prioritizes American citizens, so the remaining spots for international students are very competitive. Plus there’s no way that my parents will be able to pay tuition, so I’ve got to get a scholarship. But I think I’ve got a good shot. My grades are good. I kicked the most field goals in the city last year. And I’m growing 180 liters of algae down the street. Oils extracted from algae can be converted into biofuels."
I made this. Voice acting by Bardia Salimi and Alex Song.
my big ol’ senior animation from NYU. I wrote, built and animated everything and I burnt my hands a lot and spent whole weeks without seeing the sun or another person.
