Passion = Truth? How Jeffrey James Francis Ircink Sees The World? I love when people are passionate about something. That surging of emotion is the one honest measure of what truth is. It's a truthful display of how a person really feels about something or someone at that particular moment. That passion IS truth.

Happy Birthday, Paddington Bear!

That lovable bear from deepest, darkest Peru turns the big 5-0 today. That's right. 50.

My very favorite incarnation of Paddington happens to be the BBC television series from 1975, produced by Michael Bond and London-based animation company FilmFair, This series had an extremely distinctive appearance: Paddington was a stop-motion puppet moving in a three dimensional space in front of two-dimensional backgrounds (which were frequently sparse black-and-white line drawings), while all other characters were 2D drawings. The narration, as wells as all the voices were done by famed British actor Michael Hordern.

This appropriate birthday ad was part of the Marmite Marmelade ad series. You can catch more full episodes on YouTube and you can order this particular series online.

I stand corrected. "Marmite" is not marmelade. Far from it. The British version of the product is a sticky, dark brown paste with a distinctive, powerful flavour, which is extremely salty and savoury with umami qualities, comparable to soy sauce.
