The Land Of 1000 Cereals (this is that free choice you heard so much about?)

Over at BOWL OF NOSES there is a post of Charlie Chaplin's Eating Machine from Modern Times.  With it's robotic Rube Goldbergian complication, it delights me in it's misguided quest for efficiency.

Ryan Alexiev is an artist with complicated relationship to cold cereal, creating elaborate mosaics and more.  He's made one of my favorite short films I have seen in a while, THE WIZARD OF O'S, and with it brought a nicely streamlined version of Charlie's machine: The Golden Spoon.  Check it out.
