Computer Animation: Sintel

   This film is seven years old, and I am only now finding out about it. It is an incredibly compelling short movie with an ending that you don’t see coming. I totally dig the whole production. Watch it for yourself. If you’ve seen it before, watch it again, and give the creator’s a thumbs up. They’ve earned it.

Superman’s New Pal, Don Rickle?

   Don’t you just miss those bat-shit crazy days of yesteryear? I know I do. There was a fine balance between fun comics and “serious” comics. We’ve come a long way since those days, but perhaps we’ve gone too far. At least in the comics. There are very few examples of goofy fun books anymore. Everybody is concerned with events and continuity. I would love to see some sort of FOOM type of book again from Marvel, or DC starting up the Jimmy Olsen book again.

   This begs the question…

   At least Marvel knows how to have a little fun at its own expense in the Cinematic Universe.

   Oh Internet, is there anything that I can remember that you can’t locate? I was thinking back on an eraser set I had back when I was 10 (1980). Lo and behold I found them. Not only did I find them, I also found this awesome blog post that,is very informative, about them. The only thing I had to go on was the name on my favorite piece… HORTA. I have fond memories about these erasers. They were toys that were acceptable in the classroom, so it was as if I was getting away with something 😉

    Looking at them now, I am more drawn in by the blue Cyclops Robot.

   I loved this game as a child. It was one of those games that I could enjoy all day long. My more recent memories were from 1989 when I was working at a nightclub in Reno, NV. The club had one of these and we had the ability to play infinite games. Good times, indeed.
