Backyard Chickens - A Minute in Los Angeles 9 from My Word [Video]

Chickens in LA? Of course. Backyard chickens are very popular in Los Angeles. These ladies, raised by our neighbors, have provided me many a tasty omelet over the last few months.

A Penguin Encounter at the Santa Barbara Zoo – Humboldt Penguin (Spheniscus humboldti) [Video] (3:23)

A penguin encounter with Cito, a Humboldt Penguin (Spheniscus humboldti) at the Santa Barbara Zoo. I was attending the Island Fox Conservation Working Group Conference at the zoo and these keepers gave us a special treat by bringing Cito out for some interaction and an informative talk. It was great to be so “up-close and personal” with such an amazing animal.

All movies take place in a world of their own design and Cinemaps helps to map out those spaces for 35 of our favorite movies from Star Wars to Pulp Fiction to Back to the Future. Each map details the passage of the main charactear, showing how and where they encounter one another, diverge, and meet again throughout the passage the film. This is a new way of understanding films, providing a visual summary of the movies and a piece of art in its own right. A.D Jameson’s essays on each film provide more illumination to the “illuminated” maps showing how one informs the other.

A great gift for movie and map buffs!

** My version of this book was available from the Los Angeles Public Library in print and ebook versions.

From Amazon.com…

This beautifully illustrated atlas of beloved movies is an essential reference for cinephiles, fans of great films, and anyone who loves the art of mapmaking.

Acclaimed artist Andrew DeGraff has created beautiful hand-painted maps of all your favorite films, from King Kong and North by Northwest to The Princess Bride, Fargo, Pulp Fiction, even The Breakfast Club—with the routes of major characters charted in meticulous cartographic detail. Follow Marty McFly through the Hill Valley of 1985, 1955, and 1985 once again as he races Back to the Future. Trail Jack Torrance as he navigates the corridors of the Overlook Hotel in The Shining. And join Indiana Jones on a globe-spanning journey from Nepal to Cairo to London on his quest for the famed Lost Ark. Each map is presented in an 11-by-14-inch format, with key details enlarged for closer inspection, and is accompanied by illuminating essays from film critic A. D. Jameson, who speaks to the unique geographies of each film.
