More Golem Stories   March 31st, 2010

Besides Variant Frequencies story Heart of Clay: A Saint Darwin’s Spiritual there are two other podcast stories which use golem characters.

These are from the more canonical sense, building on Jewish Mysticism and the dark historic setting of World War II. Both have some wonderfully moving character drama as well. They are:

Niels Bohr and the Sleeping Dane by Jonathon Sullivan on Escape Pod.

Brothers by J. C. Hay on Pseudopod.

Anthro Music Videos   March 27th, 2010

Here’s a couple of music videos which make use of anthropomorphic animals and also show the genre as artform is still alive.

Ramona Falls – “I Say Fever” is trippy with some nice stylish animation and makes an interesting metaphor for exposing people’s baser animal behaviors. Plus, a gun that shoots birds is just cool.

Menomena – “Evil Bee” is an older video which is attributed to the same director and is another wonderful piece It’s a dystopian world and a view on life, relationships and the birds and the bees that’s darkly beautiful.

PodCastle – Of Beasts and Men   March 25th, 2010

PodCastle the fantasy podcast has a couple of recent stories with anthropomorphic characters.

When Shakko Did Not Lie by Eugie Foster is a wonderful fantasy of Japanese myth in which a cunning fox must undertake a quest and must succeed at it without using his characteristic tricks.

Narrative of a Beast’s Life by Cat Rambo is a more serious story, a narrative of a centaur’s enslavement in an allegorical tale of alternative history.
