Sandman Buries His Lightning Rod

Oh Word had posted up this video for Homeboy Sandman called, “Lightning Bolt. Lightning Rod.” the other day and I knew the name sounded familiar. So I checked my music catalog and found him featured on the free PH (formerly known as Pumpkin Head) mixtape, My Era (No Skinny Jeans Allowed). With a little more digging I found the “Director’s Commentary” of the video with director Naheem Adio Kujenya adding comments to the video. One nice things to find out is that some of the extras in the video are emcees themselves.

Big Buck Bunny the second “open movie” after previously mentioned Elephants Dream from the Blender Foundation. Just like the first one they have included all of the production files for aspiring artists to use under the Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 license. Also for the first time, Blender is releasing Big Buck Bunny and Elephants Dream together on Blu-ray. Big Buck Bunny revolves around three sinister hamsters (rodents?) messing with a large bunny and the large bunny exacting his revenge on the three culprits.
