Superb Animations – And One Sad One

Here are three very different animations for your pleasure.  The first one, which is called “The Egyptian Pyramids” gives a very different view of what exactly those odd constructions are actually all about, and in passing demonstrates that the loathing I acquired for camels whilst riding a Bactrian version in the Taclamacan desert a few years ago, was perfectly correct. Horrible creatures.

So, here for your viewing pleasure is one very entertaining cartoon.

Next I have a very odd animation called  “Dji: Death Sails”, which rather defies description, but demonstrates the power of determination rather well, also the benefits of strong drink.  All I can do with this one is to bung it up here and let you enjoy it for yourselves without going into a deep and profound analysis of the meaning of life, how death fits into our cultural awareness and so on….

Here is what the maker of this video has to say about it…..

Dji is a terribly unlucky death who doesn’t seem good at his job. This time he has to take the soul of a pirate stuck in the middle of the ocean, but that is easier said than done!

So click on the video and enjoy it.

And last, but absolutely not least, I have this sad little parable about the pointlessness of all our life struggles.

Here we see a caterpillar that wants to get into its cocoon in order to turn into a butterfly, but the damn thing is too small…..

So after long struggles, a pair of passing insects decide to assist him in this noble urge…..  I shan’t say anything more,as I do not wish to spoil it for you, but do watch it to the end please, that is where the whole point of the film comes to pass……

So, I hope you enjoyed my small selection of animations, something I think I shall do more often.
