My New Favorite Person

Werner Herzog.

His new documentary, Encounters at the End
of the World
, is right up my alley.
Taking place in Antarctica above and below the ice,
Herzog shows us the humans and creatures that call
this place home.

My favorite thing about him is
the words he chooses to express himself.
The statements that he makes in the video
featured below, are the reason he is my new
favorite person. It makes me laugh.
No one could ever describe the jungle this way.





Other Herzog Gems.

-on our civilization


-on language

I love him too. you should definitely see this newish movie ( I think it's called The Grand) that he is in. He plays a killer/poker champion with a pet bunny. must see.
