Snowpocalypse 2011 Brings Out Amazing Art


What happens when a giant blizzard hits the East Coast and brings life practically to a standstill? Art gets moving. Apparently. We’re beginning to see some very cool photography and short films come out of the weather disaster, the latest of which is even being praised by Roger Ebert! This short film by Jamie Stuart is an homage to a 1929 film called “Man With a Movie Camera.” In Stuart’s version, “Idiot With a Tripod,” you watch as Stuart documents the snow accumulation and tactfully shows how people lived through it. It’s poignant and simple. Check it out! [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

We drove right into it. Keep reading »

If you live in the area, your local news is likely preempting all the awesome morning television you should be enjoying on this snow day, which is annoying. Anyway, a New Jersey man made this time-lapse video of the 32 inches of snow that hit his backyard. It’s pretty cool. Keep reading »

Happy Snowpocalyptic Hump Day!

You may have heard, but the Northeast is having what some are calling a “snowpocalypse” (though I prefer “Blizzardpalooza” because it sounds more positive!) — schools are closed, employers have given workers a “snow day,” and, like, people are melting down. But not my awesome dog Lucca. She loves the snow. She also loves to catch snowballs in her mouth. See?

Seriously though, if you’re living in an area that’s been hit hard by the snow, be careful and stay warm. And if you live in a warmer climate and are drinking a margarita instead of hot cocoa, screw you. Just kidding! Keep reading »
