"Laban Movement Analysis (LMA) originated in the work of Rudolf Laban, and has evolved into a highly detailed practical system that describes qualitative aspects of nonverbal behavior. In its current development, it operates as a phenomenology of movement and mind, as it requires that the observer look at the movement itself, prior to interpretation and without prejudice, while acknowledging the intrinsic connection between movement and subjective experience. Movement Analysis increases kinesthetic sensitivity for the observer, because it places in the foreground of the observer's experience, those aspects of movement which are individual-specific: that is, those movement choices which an individual makes within a particular context. Movement Analysis as a system of observation assumes that a significant degree of individual freedom in movement quality is always present within biological, cultural, and contextually defined bodily repertoires."
"The Homage: A vivid, sumptuous homage to Georges Méliès's silent film A Trip to the Moon, suggested by directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris. The band's initial idea of a Busby Berkeley-inspired video was vetoed when they discovered the Red Hot Chili Peppers had done something similar. There's even a ship in it called the S. S. Melies."
