3 Things I Found on the Internet Today

Happy Halloween! My last two posts have been Halloween-related, but I unfortunately have nothing to add to the holiday today. Instead, I wanted to share with you…wait for it…3 things I found on the internet today! (As if you couldn’t tell from the title! :-P )

1.  Left or right? Making choices in Snowpiercer

I have talked about Bong Joon-ho’s Snowpiercer before, and I still maintain that it’s the best movie I’ve watched this year. So imagine my delight when Every Frame a Painting (previously mentioned here and here) featured the movie in its latest analytic video!

 2.  K-Dramas with clickbait titles

What would your favorite Korean drama be called if it used clickbait titles (à la Buzzfeed and Upworthy)? KDrama Fighting! has done the job for some classics, and my favorites are below.

Boys Over Flowers:

Autumn in My Heart:

3.  En Pointe

I have never taken ballet, but I’ve always been fascinated with the peculiarities involving the craft — especially those involving the pointe technique and pointe shoes. (Yes, I was completely enthralled by the documentary on pointe shoes that went viral last month, and I even watched Breaking Pointe when it was on Hulu.)

So it goes without saying that En Pointe! — a 5-minute video that features 3 dancers from The Australian Ballet and their prep routines for their pointe shoes — is right up my alley. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

(Sorry for the profusion of fluff posts lately. But stay tuned, because I’m currently working on an exciting collaboration!)

    Have you seen the 2006 documentary Ballerina? It’s available for streaming on Netflix right now, and I just watched it (twice, actually). I recently took up ballet again for the first time in a long time, and I’m back on pointe, and I loved just watching their feet and the way they infused the characters with so much life.

  2. gah, LOVE the short pointe shoes movie! I used to obsessively dance back in high school and it always makes me happy to watch any ballet-related documentaries!
