The greatest work of dimensional animation IMAO, even better than the original "King Kong".

Metafilter again? You're getting lazy. Unless your goal is to be the web's first content aggregator aggregator.

No way...Davey & Goliath is the Word.

A very influential consciousness-raising program with the right message at the right time for the right audience...7:30 am Sunday mornings.

Right up there with Ray Harryhausen was George Pal (When Worlds Collide).

This is one of my favorites. The middle section with "Harbor Lights" is especially beautiful. And, the racial stereotypes of of "The Rhythm's Okay in Harlem" guarantee you'll never see this on TV.

I find it interesting that an animated short made in 1938 Holland by a Hungarian animator used all New World music, in English.

I wonder what a time lapse of a stop motion would look like..

I get emotional just thinking about it..

In that last video, Newt represents the animator, while Ron Paul is the dead doll.

Coraline was a better stop-motion movie from a technical aspect, but Nightmare is a better story...or at least more fun.

Spoiler alert!!

I liked the Mick Jagger dude and when the dog peed on the cop's shoes.

The clown got what he deserved.

Me, I'm thinking of the good friends whom I met through here. It's not been easy all of the time, but I love them. In many ways, this mirrors "in real life." I expect that time will so define that in ways profound.

2012 will mark 40 years of my best friend and me. While 2009 marked 30 years of my most beloved college roommate (and second-best friend), it was just this month in which the latter texted me: "My daughter is now the same age as you were when we met and bonded for life."

Whoa. Wow.

I am so lucky. The luckiest.

Thanks. So thankful.

As for this, of course it's magnificent, and of course it sets a high standard, better even than nothing, especially given the effort required, technically and technologically speaking, particularly in context (including combined contexts).

In the end,it's about currently prevailing values, that which defines what folks will even bother to look at, whether popularly or in defiance thereof.

There's not much in between to be found, now is there? Or so I am given to believe.

Any time you arrive talk to both Standard Bentnoze or Common Wartface Runescape Gold. Just before you speak to these you will see these people fighting about a thing. Talk with the crooks to identify away. Whenever you carry out speak to one too you will discover that they will end up being fighting about that color armour matches goblins the most notable.
