“Does the idea that there might be knowledge frighten you? Does the idea that one afternoon on wiki-fucking-pedia might enlighten-you-frighten-you? Does the notion that there might not be a supernatural so blow your hippy noodle that you’d just rather stand in the fog of your inability to Google?”

Most of what we post here on The Tripatorium™ is fairly short and bite-sized so it’s always nice to come across something that’s a bit longer-form. This one is a treat – an instant classic – that rare bit of internet that simultaneously brings the LOL, provokes conscious thought and servers as a reminder of how beautiful and complex our collective existence is. ‘Storm’ began as a beat-poem by Australian comedian/performer Tim Minchin and was transformed into the animation you’re watching now by the talented DC Turner, a director/designer/animator currently freelancing in London. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
