"Short of the Day" is the daily discussion of a short.

Tasks:
1) Watch.
2) Discuss.
3) Send me your suggestions for the next Short of the Day per PM, along with links to the shorts and comments, questions for the other users to think about, and/or info about the short.

cows & cows & cows (cyriak, 2010) :ICM: :imdb:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FavUpD_IjVY
Length: 2 minutes 14 seconds

Suggested by: Carmel1379


"surreal bovine choreography.

No cows were harmed during the making of this video, though their future prospects probably aren't as optimistic." - cyriak

After David Firth, this might be the best contender for the youtube video with the most "WTF DID I JUST WATCH?????" responses.

Biomorphosis of cows head-banging to an awesome tune. A true feast of surreal topological excitement.

Damn, on four official lists, including "1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die", I was so sure it must be the right one.

I wouldn't want to drink the milk from those cows for sure.

This should have been titled Cows Cows & More Cows to reference the Lee Dorsey/Elvis Costello song about tears

One of the greatest videos on Youtube but can only be second to both MOO! and MEOW

Baaa is like 'cows & cows & cows', but with "[e]xperiments in ovine geometry."
IMDb, letterboxd, tumblr

whom shall we find
Sufficient? who shall tempt with wand’ring feet
The dark unbottom’d infinite Abyss,
And through the palpable obscure find out
His uncouth way, or spread his aerie flight,
Upborn with indefatigable wings,
Over the vast abrupt, ere he arrive
The happy Ile?

Nur dein Auge – ungeheuer / Blickt michs an, Unendlichkeit!
Close the world. ʇxǝu ǝɥʇ uǝdO.
