The Taser's Edge


Canadu

Get it?  Like Xanadu, the mythical etcetera, etcetera Citizen Kane/Coleridge reference etcetera?  Except with Canada, which also is a mythical place.  Today I am in Minnesota, yet another mythical place, and I am traveling there after two and a half years of living in North Carolina for the marriage of two college friends.  On Friday the high up here was supposed to be 14 degrees without wind chill factored in.  So, in honor of cold places, you should definitely check out the amazing website of the National Film Board of Canada.

Viewing this beauty, it’s easy to wish that the US would be more socialist.  Allocate a trillion or so dollars to some stuff maybe.  My favorites are of course, the animated films.  Like this one (long time Taser’s Edge readers will remember it):

Norman McLaren’s “Le Merle (The Blackbird)”
