Be ready to think again

Pouringdown v-casts present an original and thoughtful look at life and society. Part video-blog part social journalism the videos draw you in with a fresh perspective on the stuff of life. The videos are sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, sometimes gritty, but always refreshing and thoughtful.

HUH??

Perhaps someone can explain the purpose or value of this, a herky-jerky-out-of-focus waste of time?
Needs image stabilization and focus, both figuratively and literally! What a crock, the good reviews MUST have been written by himself, family and friends. You have got to be kidding, this must be a massive joke played upon the mindless feeble masses. If there were in-the-minus-reviews this would get a -10. Trust me, don't waste your time.

Seeing

Pouringdown is inspired. Inspired in that it’s art that’s possible for anyone to create in today’s plug and play world. Snap a photo with your camera, or Polaroid or cell phone – it’s possible. The curiosity Liss creates in each of us is like the need to eat or sleep – it’s necessary. Daniel wants us to see it all. He shows us that it’s not just walking to work every morning, it’s not just walking your daughter to the park or witnessing the first green of the spring thaw, but it’s life. It’s his life sort of painted over our own. It’s real and it’s beautiful and sincere.

The whole post is a reminder to stop and see. Pouringdown is an inspiration to go create something from anything and know that it’s art simply by the merit of creation.

To quote a friend, “You can’t help but to make art, art is a symptom of living.”
