I'll be honest, it's difficult to carpe diem when every diem seems to blend in with the next.

But maybe that's okay. Certainly this short, with its mellow vibe and morphing psychedelic imagery (complete with pink elephant), seems almost content to let life flash before its eyes. Sometimes all we can really do is just sit back and enjoy the trip.

This short is the perfect meeting point between Vince Collins's weirder experimental animations and his contributions to Sesame Street.
