bubble effect

Okay, this is a whole new level of ridiculous

The Frozen Cinestory: a “comic adaptation” which in reality is just stills of the movie with word bubbles and sound effects (and extra exposition narration) pasted over them. Oddly, the song lyrics are not in this book, those scenes are just given extra dialogue.

For $15, instead of the DVD, why not get the non-moving picture version?

ALL 339 PAGES OF IT

AND THAT’S NOT INCLUDING THE END CREDITS

OH YEAH THEY INCLUDED THE FUCKING END CREDITS

ALL OF THEM

Well hello there little boy,
Now don’t be shy.
Step right up, I’m a reasonable guy!
Don’t be frightened by the look in my eye,
I’m just your average evil meteor from outta the sky!

Sometimes writing looks like this:

Sketch the scene in your head before you fall asleep.

Wake up at 2am and wonder what that patch of skin below John Watson’s left ear smells like.

Dream about a soft soft kiss.

Wake up.

Write two sentences.

Research homing. Get distracted by videos of murmurations.

Write four more.

Read some Keats poems.

Delete two, write ten.

Stare into space.

Daydream about summer as you watch the snow turn into sleet. (Lilac blooming, blood red tulips in a white vase, the crunch of watermelon, juicy tomatoes, sunshine, the smell of just cut grass, berries, fireflies at twilight, homemade peach ice cream, strawberry-rhubarb pie, sundresses, sandals, sand between my toes, the smell of the ocean)

Decide to take a bubble bath and read some Mary Oliver.

As fragile as a soap bubble seems, these films have remarkable powers of self-healing. The animation above shows a falling water droplet passing through a soap film without bursting it. An important factor here is that the water droplet is wet–passing a dry object through a soap film is a quick way to burst it, as those who have played with bubbles know. The droplet’s inertia deforms the soap film, creating a cavity. If the drop’s momentum were smaller, the film could actually bounce the droplet back like a trampoline, but here the droplet wins out. The film breaks enough to let the drop through, but its cavity quickly pinches off and the film heals thanks to the stabilizing effect of its soapy surfactants. (Image credit: H. Kim, source)
