Spot the Difference

Do you know Baruch H.? If you don’t, you haven’t lived. Seriously, there are not many people that could get me to shoot pictures in an eerie part of NYC in the middle of the night. Baruch is that kind of non-preachy activist that doesn’t wait for others to cover his bills; he’s a genuinely loveable and creative person that I treasure highly.

So, a gracious curtsey goes to Baruch for bringing this video to my attention:

The Golem from Tablet Magazine on Vimeo.

And if you rather feel like adding to the shtetl nostalgia mood than being ironic, here’s the old silent film classic for you:

    I refuse to have my illustrious ancestor slandered so irresponsibly by your rag!

    If you do not remove all references to The Golem from this blog I’ll have to resort to legal action and I’ll get ROIcom to pay for it too!

    You’re a descendant of the Golem?

    Ask anyone at ROIcom – they’ll tell i have muddy origins…

    BTW Following information learned from a Facebook discussion thread (http://www.facebook.com/nshemtov?v=feed&story_fbid=104386412492) The Feed Mike initiative (http://www.renderedred.net/feed_mike) now intends to request ROI & CLI funding to start a movement promoting commando style for both ideological & health reasons.
    To prove we’re willing to put my balls on the line, and in honor of my clayful ancestor, I’m not wearing underpants this week!

    I love it! Er, not the non-underpants part, Mike, but the video, froylein.

    You could always offer to trade yourself for Gilad Schalit.
