Check out season 1 of the Canadien show How things are made. Season 1 is amazing. Later seasons they way stripped down the production value. But season one the amazing lighting, tracking dolly shots, and orginal scores. A master piece of artistic and educational documentaion of the world we never see.

Must be a guy thing... at about 1:50 I scanned to the end and that part's neat. Now must go google-image some flowers. :)

What struck me is that the actual cars seem delicate and fragile compared to the immense machinery which helped made it.

Hypnotic was right. I'm not into cars, and I am not a guy, but the strong emotional context if this just drew me in. This is a window of history. It is a look at the strange way that humans attempt to cover their animalistic past with forced order.

I see these people and wonder how many hours they worked. How many days? Years? Did they have families they had to support one rivet at a time? I also began wondering how many were still alive, and wondered to myself what they might think about modern cars and their assembly.

This was so interesting, Ze. Thank you.
