Video Sunday – Lazy Sunday Edition
Ho-hum. Not much to report today. Just two films and a webcomic. It’s a lovely lazy Sunday and life’s too short to sit inside when the sun’s all shiny and the sky all blue.
What better time to show you the animated version of Animal Farm then? Thanks to Children’s Illustration, I can display for your peepers this piece of rather lovely animation. And ah-one, and ah-two…
I am actually too terrified to watch any further, but there appear to be further parts of this movie on YouTube. Seek them out, if you so desire.
Now, they say that the kind of Beatle you get a crush on determines quite a lot about your personality. I say the same thing is true of Monty Python actors. You’ve your Michael Palin groupies (an easy choice, if you ask me). John Cleese for the folks who like ’em tall. And no one really goes for Terry Gilliam, though I’m sure he’s perfectly nice. I think I was always an Eric Idle fan at heart. Why? Look no further than the following.
I love you, Eric!
Finally, thanks to the efforts of one J.P. of Washington D.C., I bring you a selection from my new favorite webcomic. This, in spite of the fact that my friend Dan recently sent me to a site that specifically criticizes webcomics out there.
In any case, please be so good as to go here to see my profession accurately pinpointed within an inch of its life.
