So, yes, I admit it, I’m kind of a hipster. I lived in Brooklyn for a month and came to terms with that. My bedroom is lit entirely with Edison bulbs and I love taxidermy (but didn’t a year ago). So yeah.
THAT SAID, this short film looks like a hoot. The example of anthropomorphic taxidermy that they show are bizarre and awesome, and I fully support a short film to show us more about the art and the man who made it. Nobody did weird whimsy like the Victorians.
And yes, I think this will still be awesome, even when taxidermy goes the way of zombies and all that other hipster what-have-you. I still love zombies, even if their moment has passed. Being trendy is about being FULL of LOVE. You just love new things all the time — I, for one, never really stop loving trendy things once they’re over, I just decorate with them less. I am FULL of LOVE but I don’t have a great attention span.
