It is awesome. And yet, even on MetaFilter, not compelling to commentary. How it is that nature/environmental documentation is both noble and not cool is intriguing. I grew up with National Geographic specials and Bernstein's iconic theme song that Albert Brooks so compellingly references in the film Twilight Zone. Mutual of Omaha and Marlon Perkins...

But back in school, I noticed a majority didn't talk about it too much, or integrate and transform it through play and affiliation. It's more fodder for scholastic assignment than hobby; it's for nerds.

Which is one reason I admire Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou and I'm hardly alone in that. The same is true for the tragedy of Diane Fosse and near adoration of Jane Goodall.

Great link, but I'll have to wash it through an application to bring that sound up...what's the deal?
