Today’s art, musical, & relationship spark all rolled into one:
May 8, 2010: “Comprising my mother’s voice and the sounds of her garden, this video is my first Pogo mix of the real world. I hope I’ve done my mother justice in capturing her passion. Enjoy!” (YouTube)
If you haven’t already seen the film “Up,” I highly recommend that you do so. 🙂
“Up” is a heartwarming and hilarious Disney Pixar film; a cartoon yes, but adults will get a lot out of it, too.
A few of my favorite quotes follow below:
Charles Muntz: Adventure is out there!
(Indeed, adventure is out there for us to find.)
Carl Fredricksen: Hey, let’s play a game. It’s called “see who can be quiet the longest.”
Russell: Cool! My mom loves that game!
(I played a version of this game with my sister when we were young.)
Alpha: Now, you must wear the cone of shame.
Dug: [hangs head] I do not like the cone of shame.
(If you have a dog or ever seen a dog with a cone, you’ll know why this is super-funny, particularly his tone of voice in the film.)
Carl Fredricksen: Did that dog just say “Hi there”?
Dug: Oh yes.
Carl Fredricksen: Whaa!
Dug: My name is Dug. I have just met you, and I love you.
Here’s some great electronic music based on “Up,” too:
