The Internet Is Freaking Out Over This Human-Faced Bird at the Olympic Closing Ceremony

The Internet took some time out of basking in the glow of the final night of the 2018 Olympics to have a mini freak-out over a puppet featured in the closing ceremony.

Known as Inmyeonjo, the human-faced bird—which appears in ancient cave drawings from the Goguryeo period of Korean history—first made waves during the Winter Games opening ceremony when viewers couldn’t decide whether they were scared of or in awe of the unique animal.

However, this time around, Inmyeonjo fans just seemed excited for the puppet to return, especially when it began dancing to EDM in PyeongChang Stadium. One particularly enthusiastic viewer even went so far as to photoshop the face of famed DJ Martin Garrix—who was performing at the ceremony—onto the bird’s original human face.

Garrix is one of only a few electronic music artists to perform at the Olympics, joining the ranks of Tiesto and Kygo, who played in 2004 and 2016, respectively.

See some of the reactions to Inmyeonjo below.

Dave Chappelle Has A New Netflix Special Called ‘The Bird Revelation’

Netflix has just doubled its Dave Chappelle offerings to ring in the New Year.

The streaming service announced Friday the addition of a second new standup special from the comic to air on Dec. 31.

As previously reported, “Equanimity” — which takes on Trump voters — was already set to launch Dec. 31. It was filmed in September at the Warner Theater in Washington, D.C.

“Equanimity” will now be joined by “Dave Chappelle: The Bird Revelation, ” filmed Nov. 20 at the Comedy Store in Los Angeles.

The new specials expand Chappelle’s relationship with Netflix, where his original blockbuster deal in November included three specials. “The Age of Spin: Dave Chappelle Live at the Hollywood Palladium” and “Deep in the Heart of Texas: Dave Chappelle Live at Austin City Limits” debuted on Netflix earlier this year.

Meanwhile, Comedy Central is also giving viewers Chappelle for New Years. The network is airing a daylong New Year’s Day “Chappelle’s Show” marathon, featuring all 28 episodes leading up his seminal 2000 HBO stand-up special “Killin’ Them Softly.”

What a mama bird taught me about life and the dog days of summer

by

Deidra Romero

posted in Parenting

We’ve been watching a mama dove tend to her nest from our upstairs window for the last 2 weeks.

My son is 4 and my daughter is 1. Last summer was a blur with a newborn in tow. I vowed to make this summer break one to remember. We raised a group of caterpillars from tiny larva into Painted Lady butterflies. We collected beetles and worms and buried our beta fish in the garden after he died. We’ve gone on scavenger hunts and visited every local attraction.

And then this little nest appeared on top of our pergola. We watched as the mama bird built it. Then we watched her steady dedication as she sat. For days and days and days. She didn’t leave that nest once … that we could tell.

I watched her as it stormed and as the sun beat down so strong I thought she might leave. Instead, she nestled down in the wind and turned her back to the sun.

kids looking out of window

This mama and her nest became the highlight of our summer. I checked on her as if she was another pet. When the children weren’t even with me, I would peek through the shutters just to see what she was doing. I worried about her.

What if the babies don’t hatch? What if they fall out of the nest and die right on our front porch with my children watching?

I was impressed by her dedication in a way that I can’t describe. I feel a motherly solidarity with her. In these dog days of summer, I was starting to feel bound to this house in same way she is bound to her nest. If birds have emotions, I think we built a sort of bond. She watches me watching her.

A few years ago I surveyed over 200 mothers across 3 generations. I was curious about the differences between Boomers, Gen Xers, and Millennials. I asked them a lot of questions, one of which was about the hardest aspect of motherhood.

Unanimously, the mothers with grown children had one response — the hardest part for them was when their children left home. Contrary to my beliefs, these early, physically demanding days of raising young children are not the hardest. In their sage opinion, the letting go part is the most challenging.

kinds looking out of window at bird's nest

Soon the mama dove’s babies will leave her nest and I’ll watch her leave too. The home she painstakingly and instinctively built will be left barren. The hours she spent there will be memories.

She is such a sobering reminder, as I slog through the last few weeks of summer break, that this time with my little ones at home, under my wing, is truly sacred. On days when it feels like all I want is privacy and quiet and a moment where I can finish a single sentence, I remind myself: The hard part hasn’t even happened yet.

Getting ‘The Bird’ From a Bird

Filming with animals can be a lot more complicated than filming with people and it takes a lot more preparation than one might think. One wants it to go well, so one can never be prepared enough. One example of how filming with animals can be complex is the following story:

I shot a western in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It was a great deal of fun. I would get up early and watch the wranglers herd the cattle to their pens. I would have breakfast with real cowboys and eat fresh tamales along the banks of the Rio Grande. Some of our locations could only be accessed on horseback. We utilized stagecoaches and buckboards. We hired many of the enthusiastic local residents and dressed them in western garb.

One shot required the services of a trained hawk. The hawk was to swoop low over the outlaws as a symbolic image of impending retribution. Out came a man with a trained hawk. It stood on his wrist, its head covered by a cloth hood while it awaited instructions.

The guy never stopped bragging about how well the bird was trained, how faithful it was to him and how obedient to his every whim and will.

“It will fly when I tell it to and swoop when I signal. It will fly in a straight line and come back upon my command,” and on and on and on.

Came the moment. The trainer removed the hawk’s hood. The bird straightened up in preparation for flight. It trained its laser-like gaze on some distant object. The director barked “action” and the trainer made a signal with his arm. Off went the bird… and went, and went, and went.

“Make it swoop,” ordered the director. The man made an arm signal. About 200 yards out, the bird looked back over its shoulder and must have said to itself what they say when someone hits a home run in Yankee Stadium, “See ya!”

Have you seen this bird? “Cause I sure as heck haven’t and neither has anyone else.

The last I saw of its trainer, he was standing in a field of daisies mumbling: “But the bird loves me. It spirals when I signal and swoops when I call. And it always comes back.”

To which I say… “uh huh.”

Here is another example of a film depicting an animal:

You can’t ask too many questions… you can only ask too few.

A young woman sat in the first row at one of my many safety seminars. I do 18 safety seminars a year. I was just finishing my speech about our close relationship with the American Humane, when she raised her hand.

“If I have my own horse, can I use it in my film?”

Easy enough question, you would say. But this is a film student. Ever hear the expression “two people separated by a common language?”

Or, better yet, “the devil is in the details.”

“What will your horse do,” I asked?
“It will be coming into the barn,” she replied.
“Will an actor be riding it,” I queried?
“Yes,” she readily admitted.

“Okay,” I said. “What you will need to do is contact American Humane and get the name and number of a reputable horse trainer. Work with him or her and your actor until both the horse and the performer are comfortable with one another.”

She dutifully jotted down what I said and assured me she would do as I suggested. I continued on with the seminar.

Six weeks passed.

One day she strode into my office and asked: “Remember me?”
“Yes,” I said. “The horse-in-the-barn lady.”
“Right. And I’m ready to shoot.”

We went over the requirements for filming with animals and she had done everything I had asked her to do. We were all set to go.

And then, out of sheer dumb luck, or maybe an instinct developed over a thousand conversations with film students, I asked: “How does the horse actually enter the barn?” I simply meant, did it walk, did it trot, or did it gallop?

She said, “Oh… it crashes through the window.”

Yikes… gulp…

She had seen the Arnold Schwarzenegger film, True Lies, and been inspired by a scene in which Schwarzenegger rode a horse into a glass elevator on the side of the hotel. Unfortunately for her, her budget and timeframe was considerably shorter than that of James Cameron who directed the film.

I explained the complexities of training a horse, any horse, to jump through wood and glass, even breakaway wood and candy glass. She had also never bothered to mention her plans to the owner of the barn, nor explain, nor account for “scoring” the wall to break, be replaced and busted again. The term “scoring” in this context, as opposed to scoring the music for a film, means pre-cutting something so it will give on a small amount of contact. She had neither the time nor the money to accomplish her surprisingly complex vision. And apparently her communication skills were of a somewhat limited nature as well.

I am reasonably sure, somewhere out there in Southern California, there is a barn owner, a stuntman, an animal trainer, a carpenter and an actor who is happy I asked that last question.

Somewhere, out there in Southern California, I am positive, there is a horse that is glad I asked that last question.

You can’t ask too many questions… you can only ask too few.

Electronic Bird Repellent, new, programmable sonic

Electronic Bird Repellent, new, programmable sonic


Drive those pesky birds away from your patio, balcony, telephone poles or above your doors. This sonic repeller will create a “danger zone” to frighten birds away for good. By using birds’ own distress calls the birds perceive a danger in the area and become agitated and disoriented. The birds will believe that their flock mates are in trouble fleeing quickly. This programmable species specific repeller has significantly reduced or completely eliminated bird infestations in extensive field tests. There are eight bird sounds for you to choose from to target the specific birds that are invading your space. Some of the eight callings are predator calls to give the birds even more of a sense of danger. In addition to programming the bird sound, you can program the volume, time off periods and whether the bird sounds play in random or sequential order. Mixing it up will make it impossible for the birds to get used to any one pattern. This bird repeller works for most birds smaller than a crow and does no harm to any bird; it only uses loud, startling sounds to get them out of your way. Requires standard 110vAC electricity (adapter included). BirdXPeller is made of sturdy plastic with powerful directional speaker and convenient controls. This device covers up to an acre at full volume, in a long oval dispersion pattern. It weighs 3 pounds.
