What are the haps my friends

July 18th, 2006: Oh man, guys, OH MAN. The NFB has put fifty of its best animated shorts online. I love the NFB, and now I can share with you the brilliance of some of my favourite cartoons: The Big Snit may be the funniest I've ever seen. SO GOOD. Also, remember The Cat Came Back? And The Sweater, which my friends still quote today for the "hund-red, MILLION moths" line. And Neighbours! The strangly touching Notes on a Triangle and Mindscape! So much goodness I share with you. You can click on "large version" to get even bigger films. It's great to be able to see these films again.

GUESS WHAT JUST CAME OUT: IT'S MY NEW BOOK!! If you've ever wondered what you'd do if you were stranded in the past, wonder no longer! With HOW TO INVENT EVERYTHING, you'll reinvent civilization from scratch, no matter what time period you're in. You'll become the single most influential, decisive, and important person ever born. You'll make history...


Here's the trailer!

One year ago today: t-rex knows the characters' names, so he must know what he's talking about.
