Deranged penguin.

A clip from the documentary filmed in Antarctica by Werner Herzog, 'Encounters at the end of the world'.

He's just broken. I know it's so tempting to anthropomorphise these creatures but having lived with a cockateil for the past three years I can tell you that it's all hard-wiring. Every day is the same routine; he's like a little feathery robot.

Sure Jim, I know he's hard wired like us all, but I'm interpreting it in human terms - anthrpomorphic. Cheeky I know. I think this does tell us something about being human.

Oooh, that's cheered me up this evening.
How portentous was the music?

McGuire said...

Yes titus, the whole scene has a monmumental feel to it and it all trurns out to be quite fucking funny!

I was torn between seeing the peguin as some wayward existentialisT (Like Homer) or a deluded nutcase (Like Don Quixote). It moved me and it also made me burst out laughing.

refreshing video. Allegory, anyone?
