Some of the comments we have read here suggest that we should mention the creator of “A wolf loves pork”, Mr Taijin Takeuchi.
While we were looking for a way to realise a story describing “a journey through time” based on printed images, we were inspired by Mr Takeuchi’s brilliant work. For this reason we intentionally quoted his work in our little movie while showing full respect to his original idea. We didnt mention his name because we did not want to do so without his prior agreement.
However after considering some of the comments posted here we have decided to add credits to him and his work, which we obviously absolutely love.

Oren Lavie is a songwriter, singer, and author of funny books for sad children. He was born in 1976, two minutes behind schedule, and has been trying to catch up ever since.
The Opposite Side of The Sea, Oren’s debut album, was released on his label, A Quarter Past Wonderful.
His music video for the track “Her Morning Elegance” has become an international sensation with over 8 million hits on YouTube to date, breaking YouTube’s most highly rated video record.
He is currently working on a new book for children, a new album, and a new haircut.
Here is the Advertising from Norwegian television, from a company called Hansen & Dysvik, which sells pillows and similar stuff :: Can you see the influence or is an obvious rip off?

Though it sounds like it’s about an ex-girlfriend, “Laura” is really about a friend. About the song, Christopher Owens, the band’s songwriter, says:
“Laura,” is about Laura. It’s directly to Laura. Laura was Liza’s [Owens’ ex-girlfriend] best friend, and when Liza and I started hanging out all the time and going out, Laura got mad at me because I was taking her best friend away, kind of. At first, Laura liked me a lot, like, “Oh, he’s great. He’s great.” And then as she realized, “Oh, I’m never going to hang out with Liza now,” then it was like, “Oh, Chris sucks.” So then I’d be like, “Oh, she sucks.” And we had this feud. It’s so juvenile. You sound like 15-year-old girls. It was horrible. But as soon as it was all over, I thought to myself, “You really like Laura.” I think she’s great. So the song is about like, “Let’s be friends again.” Both of us wanted to be friends again, but it’s hard to go up to somebody that you’ve been fighting really hard for two years—well maybe not two years, one year or something—and say like, “I’m sorry, let’s bury the hatchet and be friends.” It’s hard to do that.
So Owens wrote the song and gave it to her as an apology and a white flag. She accepted. That’s her in the video, too. Watch it here ::

I want to send my respects to Brianna Karp who has been blogging on girlsguidetohomelessness.com where she is been writing about her experiences living on the streets, she has been in the news recently as she just got a paid internship for Elle Magazine.
Also check out Barnes, a Brit who was living in Huntly, Scotland, and became homeless after his marriage fell apart and he lost his job. He, too, was running a blog — homelesstales.com Now has become a forum for other homeless.
I have started a new blog venture named “Tu otro banco” (Your other bench/bank) where I will be posting photographs of people sleeping on benches. Please check it out and send me some of your own pictures!
Phoenix Business Journal – by Chris Casacchia
RMG Marketing Group, formerly known as Results Marketing Group Inc., the largest media buyer in Arizona, has closed its doors after a 16-year run in Phoenix.
The firm’s 15-member staff was notified Aug. 18 by Boston parent company Mercury Media Holdings, which said it no longer will offer traditional services –– the specialty of the Phoenix office.
RMG’s clients, which include IHOP, State Farm Insurance, KASW-TV Channel 6 and KTVK-TV Channel 3, will not be retained. RMG also handled media buys for EB Lane in Phoenix.
“They were getting out of the traditional media business, so they decided to close the Phoenix office,” said RMG President Diana Trujillo Fliger, who served her last day earlier this week. She had been with the company for eight years.
Mercury Media, one of largest independent direct-response media agencies in the U.S., also operates offices in Boston and Santa Monica, Calif. A call to Ken Dec, senior vice president of business development in Boston, was not immediately returned.
“We’re not happy with RMG going away at all, but we understand,” said Fliger, who wasted little time in establishing a new company that offers the same services.
D.m.b media group llc will be led by partners Fliger, who will lead media strategy, and Liz Scott, who will head business development. Scott worked at RMG for seven years.
Fliger and Scott hope to keep most of their former clients and employees as they search for a new office.
“We just welcome the opportunity to work with clients we’ve had for so many years,” Fliger said. “It is our goal to grow the company as quickly as possible, retain traditional business and retain the employees.”
