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.


Hey, my new book Romeo and/or Juliet comes out in less than a month! It's my choose-your-own-path version of the Shakespeare play featuring tons of great illustrations. To celebrate - and to also convince you to purchase it! - I've posted the first page, and every day we vote on which option to follow. We're doing a LET'S PLAY ROMEO AND/OR JULIET and you should totally join us!

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