This is the first time I’ve been chased by wild turkeys on the way to work. Their pursuit concerned me at first, especially since my people had just finished massacring and eating their people, but early in the chase it became clear they were friendly, playful even.
Now I know where the term ‘Turkey Trot’ comes from.
It’s quite a bit different than Kamakawiwoʻole’s version and far cry from Judy Garland’s original. There’s one weird jump in the recording about half way thorough, but still, it’s worth watching for Gabi’s vocal acrobatics.
Do you think Gabi and I should take this show on the road?
Jeff Desom made this incredible time lapse video created from clips of Alfred Hitchcock’s 1954 film Rear Window. In the video, the whole story unfolds in order, but the only thing you see is the panoramic view from the window. The movement of the small figures in the distance let you know where to direct your attention. The video is set to a great soundtrack, Brahms’ Hungarian Dance No. 5. Desom shared how he made the video on his website.
