Axe - Sweaty

I had a teacher in grade school who was obsessed with body odor. In the summertime she would reprimand our 7th grade class on a regular basis on the fundamentals of hygiene. When the boys would come up to the chalk board she would humiliate them by holding her nose. It was even worse if you got the problem wrong. She must of had an acute sense of smell. But she didn’t smell so great either– like potpourri air freshener or dehydrated fruit mix. I always wondered why she wore silk flowery turtlenecks even on the hottest days. She must have smelled pretty funny to herself. What I would have given to see goody goody Jimmy Rabinowitz raise his hand with the algebra answer and hit her with the armpit hose.

Can’t find the credits … looked everywhere. Anyone?

Epuron - The Power of Wind

The wind as Harvey, Snuffleupagus, and the invisible it. I have always had a tendency to anthropomorphize everything. Still today I unconsciously think silverware have personalities. I’ll catch myself– especially when they won’t put themselves away in the drawer. This may have started sometime around seeing the film ‘The Red balloon’ as a tot. Pascal a little boy and his friend the red balloon wander the streets of Paris. This commercial leaves me with a similar feeling– that is sad, funny and poetic.

[Aside: People, when they first see this almost always ask is he real? When I saw this I was astounded at the life like CG character animation, but it turns he is real.]
