Back to not-so-serious. Well, serious, but not-so-heavy.
Shannon and I went to the “Oscar-Nominated Shorts” program a few days ago. Worth the effort overall; the Hollywood Theater has popcorn that’s suspiciously delicious (Magic Mushroom Brand! so help me, you can’t make this stuff up) and some of the shorts were terrific. My personal favorite was this understated little stunner:
That’s not the complete piece — much better to go over to Con-Can and see the whole thing.
Watching the shorts reminded me of this gorgeous little piece. For some reason, we have a bunch of this animator’s works on VHS. Warning: This one’s a tearjerker!
