Flix for Short: A Handy Tip for the Easily Distracted


by Miranda July

“A Handy Tip For the Easily Distracted” by Miranda July - NOWNESS from NOWNESS on Vimeo.

This short film by Miranda July is full of helpful ideas. Apparently a deleted scene from July's 2011 feature-length movie The Future, A Handy Tip For The Easily Distracted is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: a handy way to shake off the perpetual burdens of modern life in order to become free ... and productive.

I for one certainly should heed July's advice, in the course of making this post I checked my cat's teeth for tarter, made a sandwich, checked twitter, ate the sandwich in bed, and tweeted about eating the sandwich in bed, and played some Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Though to be fair, I never said I was very productive.
