Bugs Bunny, Song Memory, and a Rainy Night in Rio

For some reason beyond my understanding, the song that Bugs Bunny first sings in the episode Long-Haired Hare got stuck in my head, a few days ago. And after kind of humming it quietly to myself, I came upon a sudden realization: I could look it up on the Internet!

I’ve never known the name of the song, and I’m not sure why it took me all this time to actually look the thing up. It’s been a bit of a mystery to me, and it’s silly to realize that I could have easily looked this up 5+ years ago.


Robbie: A Short Film About An Aging Robot, Made From NASA Archival Footage

Set 6,000 years in the future, Robbie is an aging self-aware robot looking back on his life in the last moments before his battery life runs out.

Hypnotic Mushroom Sorting Video

There are some really ingenious moments, where they seem to be able to impose a bit of order on something that looks like all kinds of chaos and randomness. In particular: using graduated openings to separate out mushrooms into 10 different sizes (1:31) and automatically aligning mushrooms to the same direction (2:39).
