In 1968, 2001 A Space Odysseyy was released, and so was Yellow Submarine, a psychedelic mashup of music and animation in a groundbreaking film.

Esquire Magazine has an excellent piece on the film that remains fresh, partly due to the timeless music of the Beatles, but also to the timeless art of the animation. The bright colors and bold figures remain compelling.

The 60’s were a great time of an explosion in the possibilities of culture and humanity, but we can’t forget the turbulence and tragedy of those same times. We cannot lose hope now in our evolution.

Let’s celebrate our species, capable of such greatness and fun. And not lose hope of our potential, that as always, remains within us, impervious to the outside world in a fundamental sense. And yes, I am full of doubt as well.
