Bill Murray on Being Obnoxious | Blank on Blank | PBS Digital Studios

a talk in English

This episode is brought to you by Dropbox http://Dropbox.com

"I‘m just an obnoxious guy who can make it appear charming, that’s what they pay me to do"
- Bill Murray in October 1988

T.J. English was tasked with writing a profile of Bill Murray for Irish America magazine. This was around the time Scrooged came out. So he headed out to Murray's house in New Jersey. The guys sat down and the tape recorder was turned on. Murray's dog ran about and wrecked a little havoc.

Murray cracked wise on giving back to his mom when he made it big, hijinks on the set of Ghostbusters, the spiritual change that saved him from destruction, and how fame sort of helps with talking to women.

Episode 6: Extreme Budgeting

a report in English

How is it possible to budget just $1 a day for immediate costs like food and shelter and still save for long term items like your kids' education and emergencies?

Take action and find more resources on the Change Series website: http://www.livingonone.org/changeseries

One day, we head to the bank in town to see if we could get a loan or open a savings account with only our $1 a day income and find that it's nearly impossible! Back in the village, we talk to our friends Anthony and Rosa about how they save and borrow money without using a traditional bank. Innovative tools, like microfinance loans and savings clubs, are helping them budget their money but what kind of extra risks do these tools force Anthony and Rosa to take on?

Italy's Mediterranean Mass Grave: Europe or Die (Episode 4/4)

a report in English

Since 2000, more than 27,000 migrants and refugees have died attempting the perilous journey to Europe. With an unprecedented number of people breaking through its heavily barricaded borders in 2014, the EU continues to fortify its frontiers.

In the fourth and final episode of Europe or Die, VICE News correspondent Milène Larsson arrives in Italy as the only extensive search and rescue mission in the Mediterranean is replaced with a border surveillance mission, effectively leaving thousands of desperate migrants adrift in the sea.

Elliott Smith on Freaks | Blank on Blank | PBS Digital Studios

a talk in English

"A lot of people are kind of depressed. I'm happy some of the time, and some of the time I'm not."
- Elliott Smith in 1998, as told to Barney Hoskyns

We came across a really lost special tape for this episode of Blank on Blank: Elliott Smith interviewed in 1998 by Barney Hoskyns. It's a little eerie hearing him now more than 10 years after his death, but it's also kind of soothing to hear his signature comfort and discomfort bubbling beneath the surface. It's kind of like his timeless collection of music. Smith died under mysterious circumstances in 2003 at the age of 34.

In this animated film Elliott Smith talks about feeling like a freak in high school, how he initially didn't feel confident singing in the style that became his signature voice, what he said when people compared him to Paul Simon, writing about people with addictions, the internal chaos that people face, and how his music isn't happy or sad. "I couldn't say what it is"

Enjoy, everybody. RIP, Elliott.

ELLIOTT SMITH QUOTES

"There's a bunch of Elvis Costello records that made all the difference between feeling like a total freak and feeling like ... only a freak. A freak among other freaks"
"I've been doing four-track songs by myself since I was like a teenager, where I'd sing in a way that I ... I just didn't think other people would like it, so I didn't play it for them but eventually I got over that, which I'm happy that I did."
"People would be like, "Paul Simon." I'd be like, "I don't feel like I'm anything like Paul Simon."
"Certain songs just feel a way that's hard to put into words and it's not happy and it's also not really sad but I couldn't say what it is"

Les 3 Boutons - Miu Miu Women's Tales #10

a narrative film in French

“Miss Jasmine! I have a package for you!” The 14-year-old girl with braces takes a break from milking the goat. Her local postman has delivered a surprise. She opens it up. Out floats a magical magenta ball dress ten times her teenage size. “I am curious,” she says, and enters the folds of the dress. From here, Jasmine⎯headstrong, a dreamer, a realist⎯takes us on a modern anti-fairy tale through caves and stalagmites, streets and shop windows, obsessions and everyday empowerment.

Les 3 Boutons is directed by the legendary 87-year-old Agnès Varda, considered by many as forerunner to French New Wave cinema, and winner of the first honorary Palm d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival this year. Les 3 Boutons marks the 10th commission from Miu Miu Women’s Tales, the acclaimed short-film series by women who critically celebrate femininity in the 21st century.

This latest addition is a signature work from Varda’s unique world. It’s full of playful hallmarks from her six decades of making films which include the groundbreaking La Pointe Courte (1955), Cléo de 5 à 7 (1961), Sans toit ni loi (1985) and Les Plages d’Agnès (2009).

“It’s playing a game with reality,” Varda says. “The game is called cinema.”

Les 3 Boutons’ lead is newcomer Jasmine Thiré, and it was shot on location in Bonnieux and also rue Daguerre, Paris, where Varda has lived for 50 years. The story gently reverses the clichés of girlhood. Jasmine prefers school uniform and education to the easy allure of a Cinderella lifestyle.

“I immediately saw the contradictory juxtaposition of farm life and haute couture,” explains Varda. “The most minimal element, the most essential one is the button. 3…2…1…go!” As the three buttons gradually fall from Jasmine’s dress, each full of promise and change, we realize that Varda’s description of “a young girl discovering herself” applies just as much to the ageless director as it does to the inquisitive protagonist.

Marteria - Sekundenschlaf feat. P.Fox

a music video in German

SEKUNDENSCHLAF erscheint am 4.3.2011 als 2 Track & Download: http://amzn.to/eh5M13 (Inkl. SEEED Remix)

Regie: Daniel Franke (wearechopchop)

Aus dem Album ZUM GLÜCK IN DIE ZUKUNFT

Tick Tack. Tick Tack -- Zeit ist knapp.
Die große Uhr hört einfach nicht auf zu ticken; und manchmal läuft sie schneller -- als es uns allen lieb ist. Zehn Jahre können da schon mal wie im Wimpernschlag vorbei sein. Einmal nicht aufgepasst da draußen und es ist vorbei.
Auch MARTERIA ist das mit der "Zeit" sehr bewusst geworden. Er geht mit diesem Umstand aber ziemlich entspannt um -- zumindest versucht er es.
Mit "SEKUNDENSCHLAF", der dritten Single aus dem Album "ZUM GLÜCK IN DIE ZUKUNFT" nimmt er uns ein bisschen die Sorgen und Ängste vor der immer tickenden Uhr, vor der ständig ablaufenden Zeit. Es gibt keinen Grund sich zu wehren, denn älter werden gehört nun mal zum
Leben dazu wie Geburt und Tod. Lebe lieber dein Leben, anstatt immer an die noch verbleibende Zeit zu denken.
"Halt nicht fest, sieh nicht hin, wenn dir Sand durch die Finger rinnt."
Musikalische Unterstützung erhielt MARTERIA bei diesem "zeitlosen" Meisterwerk von niemand geringeren als den Erfolgsproduzenten "THE KRAUTS", einem bekannten Berliner Stadtaffen, der seinen Gesangspart in einem "Haus am See" aufgenommen hat und seinem alten Weggefährten "DEAD RABBIT".
Aber auch SEEED, die bekannte Dancehall-Formation aus Berlin, steuerte einen Remix bei. Ein epochal rockiger Orchestersound bieten MARTERIA das perfektes Soundbild, für seine tiefgehenden Texte -- ein Remix der sich hinter dem Original nicht zu verstecken braucht.

What happened to antimatter? - Rolf Landua

a lecture in English

View full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/what-happened-to-antimatter-rolf-landua

Particles come in pairs, which is why there should be an equal amount of matter and antimatter in the universe. Yet, scientists have not been able to detect any in the visible universe. Where is this missing antimatter? CERN scientist Rolf Landua returns to the seconds after the Big Bang to explain the disparity that allows humans to exist today.

Lesson by Rolf Landua, animation by TED-Ed.
