A cabbie’s life, treacherous bike riding, RVs are some people’s heaven, the trolley at night, big rigs near Rosecrans, why we drive freeways, a bus driver’s day, and this skateboarder knows San Diego

Okay, I lied a little - the latest iteration of Animal Farm doesn't have a trailer yet. But yesterday's Internet was all abuzz over Andy Serkis' announcement that he intended to direct a motion capture version of George Orwell's famous political allegory - minus the politics. Quoth The Hollywood Reporter: "On the storytelling, Serkis says: 'We’re keeping it fable-istic and [aimed at] a family audience. We are not going to handle the politics in a heavy-handed fashion. It is going to be emotionally centered in a way that I don’t think has been seen before. The point of view that we take will be slightly different to how it is normally portrayed and the characters, We are examining this in a new light.'”
Hm. The imagination sparks - how to achieve a new point of view, one that is emotionally centered and aimed at a family audience? Hm...
