Learn more.

Ever heard of Wholphin? I just learned what it is today. It calls itself DVD magazine of unseen films. and it's from the fine folks of McSweeney's, "lovingly encoded with unique and ponderable films designed to make you feel the way we felt when we learned that dolphins and whales sometimes, you know, do it." I found this while looking around for Miranda July's "Are you the favorite person of anybody?" short. Which is in the previous issue. which is apparently the first issue, of Wholphin, by the way. already.

There are a whole bunch of short films on the site in the "Screening Room." Like "Sometimes" (scroll down the page a bit) to which belongs the still of the monster above. I liked it. and the song really does stick with you.

I was pleasantly surprised by "Glinder and Glinder" by Kasper Hauser, a comedy group out of San Fran. Just a few really weird touches to the thing.

You've seen Me and You and Everyone We Know? Awesome. The dream-team of Miguel Arteta (chuck and buck, the good girl) and Miranda July cannot be fucked with!

Was Miguel Arteta the director of Chuck and Buck? Well, I can look that up. I was thinking that Mike White did like everything for that film.
