just the vehicle I need for the zombie apocalypse
I like that everything but the tiny little blue bug gets destroyed

The New York Film Festival will host the world premiere of Kathryn Bigelow’s PSA on the crisis of elephant poaching, Last Days, the Film Society of Lincoln Center said Wednesday. The screening, followed by a panel moderated by Bigelow entitled “The Crisis in Elephant Poaching,” will take place Saturday, September 27 at 6pm at the Elinor Bunin Munroe Film Center. She will be joined by Peter Knights, Julieta V. Lozano, K’naan Warsame, and Peter Godwin in the discussion.
"A year ago I had a fortuitous meeting with both Hillary and Chelsea Clinton. Chelsea had just returned from Sub-Saharan Africa where poachers killed herds of elephants by cyanide poisoning," said Bigelow, director of the 2010 Oscar Best Picture winner The Hurt Locker. “After our conversation I felt compelled to enter this space, encourage a dialogue, raise awareness. Killing for ivory by organized syndicates was now being carried out on an industrialized scale. Working with the writer, Scott Z. Burns, we set out to connect the dots between ivory trinkets purchased at markets in China and elsewhere and the terrorist nightmares we see on the nightly news.”
Elephant twins?! From Amboseli Trust for Elephant’s Facebook.
On June 5, 1980 the beautiful matriarch, Estella, gave birth to twins. They were the first and only twins we’ve ever recorded in Amboseli. I named them Eclipse and Equinox, a female and a male. Miraculously they both survived and are alive today. Eclipse is the mother of three and already a grandmother. Equinox is only just coming into his prime. CM
