"The Adventures of Prince Achmed" by Lotte Reiniger, a cute German girl in Leia Buns who made the first animated feature film. There is a great documentary about her on the DVD called "Homage to the Inventor of the Silhouette Film," but there is some other documentary on Youtube that might be good too.

I apologize for Youtube's blatant titling, but I liked the dance and concept.


Christmas Eve

I found in an errant folder a series of drawings I made for a graphic novel. I believe the story involved a wayward college student who gets visited by 3 people: an angel, Morpheus (from the Sandman not the Matrix) and Andy Warhol. His life then changes in some dramatic way. I think it's appropriate for today.

This documentary about Girl Talk and copyright laws is the most important documentary for any artist living today.

He couldn't imagine what to say to her next. Tucker Trigg spared him the task by introducing the man who stood next to the chair. He was a tall, older man. His gray hair was combed back smartly. He had the sort of military posture seldom seen in New York. His name was Clifford Priddy, and he was well known for defending prominent people in federal criminal cases. This one had Wasp written all over him. He looked at you straight down his long, thing nose. His clothes were subdued and rich, as only these bastards knew how to do it. his shiny black shoes were oh-ho-sweetly fitted in the instep and trim in the toe. The man made Kramer feel clumsy. His own shoes were heavy brown sloggers, with soles that stuck out like rock ledges. Well, this case wasn't in federal court, where the old Ivy League network still looked out for it's own. No, they were dealing with the basic Bronx now.

The Bidwell House Museum Silent Auction

Glee: It finally happened, Will finds out his wife Terri has faked her pregnancy. There is a big argument about why she lied. This is the most dramatic scene in the TV series so far:
Terri: “Ever since you started [Glee Club], you just walk around like you’re better than me.”
Will: “I should be allowed to feel good about myself.”
Terri: “Who are we kidding, Will. This marriage works because you don’t feel good about yourself.”
Exit Will.
