To anyone who has not yet tasted the musical nectar of BR, please begin with his pleasantly-arranged website. Good luck finding his records tho. They are lovely!

I am of the opinion that Mattel's 1978 Magical Musical Thing makes a rare recorded contribution on Samurai Math Beats, track 6: Sayonara Tsutara. One man's opinion, is all.

Thanks to Animation Blog for reminding me of Sally Cruikshank's lovely and mysterious Face Like A Frog short from 1987. It needs to be seen in higher definition to be appreciated, though. The version I found on youtube doesn't do it justice!

There are some helpful links from BoingBoing from last fall too.

From Cartoon Brew: try to not sing the Aeroplane Jelly song for the rest of your life. You will sing this song. For the rest of your life. You're welcome!

From Drawn (by way of Splog): riot of colors from Emmanuele Luzzati. Lovely!!

Thanks Drawn!

Just getting around to reading last year's profile of Thomas Heatherwick in the New Yorker. Who wouldn't want to design things after looking at his stuff?

Roll them dice! Thanks Matt Hammill. Everything you do is wonderful!

There are some terrific making-of videos at Shy The Sun's website, in case you were planning to make anything as awesome as their stuff. I could watch their films all day.
