Coraline: Review

I finally had the chance to catch Coraline with Melissa on Saturday night. All I can say is uhhh-mazing! This film is beautiful and entertaining. Its worth seeing in 3d too, it wasn't too distracting. The detail in the facial animation blew me away. And as a side note, I found it funny that she's from Michigan. Go see it, you wont be disappointed!
Also, check out the panel discussion about the crew's creative process on the film:

Make little changes to earth..

I have been diggin this album from scottish band Frightened Rabbit for the last couple weeks now and I thought I would share it on the blog since I haven't been doing monthly music finds lately. This video for the single "Heads Roll Off" makes me smile. I love how kids will dance to anything. Anytime, anywhere. You wanna dance? Kids are always down. How sweet is that?
