    Talking Pick me up...

    Its been a long day and I was browsing around and came across this:

    it is rare that I like these things but what a moral. It changed my entire mood.

    Hopefully I can cheer someone else up too.

    That's a really great animation - someone commented that he should work for Pixar and I absolutely agree.

    Ya So do I..... It keeps buffering,skipping,etc..... DELIVERING MEDIA VIA FLASH IS THE STUPIDIST THING THEY EVER STARTED DOING! (CPU intensive on most computers)

    I usually try to convert the vids TO 3GP and watch it with VLC which then it plays fine...... QUALITY IS FINE FOR FREE MEDIA!! (Thats what ppl dont understand... ITS FREE!!!!!! -- YOU SHOULDNT EXPECT SUPER HD QUALITY FOR FREE!! (And they shouldnt worry about it like they do,they should offer it in EMBEDDED WMP media which plays fine ON ANY OS))

    Anyway about the video: I quite didnt understand what was going on -- But I had a thought come to my mind "Keep trying and you will succeed" as it looked like he was trying to pull the trees up top there but I wasnt sure....

    Umm...it's an animated snuff film.

    He wanted to fly, couldn't, and made a cliff look like flat ground...then leaped to his death.
    What was the moral, exactly? "Reach for your dreams, make them happen, even if it kills you?
    Having problems, or maybe questions about WHT? Head over to the help desk!

    Sadly that is the mindset of many now...as the rapper 50 Cent would say "I'm a get rich or die trying". Not an intelligent statement. But set aside his weak music and this generations glorification of the get rich quick gangster life...he's actually been able to "sell" that mindset to the masses and make smart business decisions.

    Not living a dream or trying to achieve it has left many spiritually dead..for many years...which is more painful than death itself.

    Interesting how a pick me up went the opposite direction.

    I don't care much for the video itself, but the animation is nicely done (especially with it having been created by a student).
