Apparently not only the hills are alive with the sound of music! I love the way the joyousness of this event just takes over the moment for everyone there.

    That was awesome! I just watched it twice. Once alone and then with my daughter :). Thank you so much for sharing!

    It’s amazing how those random train passengers are all able to spring into dancing in such a coordinated manner. Those Belgians must have rhythm in their blood.

    Thanks, Amanda! It really made me smile. And thanks iorek! It would sure be nice if people could some together spontaneously that way, wouldn’t it?

    This is an absolutely wonderful and uplifting video but I don’t think it was danced by random passengers, it looks far too chreographed for that.
    However, it’s a treat for everyone!

    Good eye, Brian — It was performed by a group of dancers to the surprise and delight of the people in the station as a promotion for a television reality show about casting a production of “The Sound of Music.”

How Do Movies Show Time Passing?
Someone once said that movies are "pieces of time." A few take place in "real time." Alfred Hitchcock's experiment, "Rope," unfolds in just the time it takes us to watch it, all in what appears to be one seamless shot. But others take place over days, weeks, years, even generations. Slavko Vorkap

Switched at Birth and the End of Life
I'm a big fan of ABC Family's Switched at Birth and have appreciated its complicated characters, honest and heartfelt relationships, and compelling storylines, as well as its unprecedented, in-depth portrayal of the deaf community. Last week's episode may have been the all-time best (SPOILER ALERT)
