Many of you who know me, know that there's a warm place in my heart for anime, but in America there's just not enough of it. However, I'm getting my fix on Saturday nights between 12:00AM to 6:00AM (yes, that's right, the middle of the freakin' night) on Toonami (I DVR it, and watch when I'm actually awake), which is basically just Cartoon Network.

This month it's on hiatus, and in its place they've been showing some of the best feature-length anime movies ever. The first week, they showed Akira, and unfortunately, I didn't know about it and I didn't DVR it, so I didn't get to watch pretty much the greatest anime movie ever. However, this past Saturday, December 14, they showed Summer Wars, which I reviewed on Squidoo. Please head on over and read my review, In Summer Wars, Dorothy Can't Hack This OZ.

I also found a site by a couple of animators called GrisDismation. They appear to be a couple who enjoy drawing together, and they're trying their hand at creating an independent animation studio. I've checked out a number of their films, and they remind me a little of Ren and Stimpy, but with a far darker sense of humor. The one I like best is called If I Didn't Have a Brain (The Anti-Drug Song). You can check them out at GrisDismation.com

Finally, I'd like to send a little love over to the folks over at Huckaberry's Cryptic Crydders. The site is run by Reggie Whitehead, who's art is extremely intriguing to me. He makes art out of animal bones, and other buried treasures. Yes, I know. He actually uses animal bones to create works of art. They're actually pretty awesome. Check it out, whenever you get the chance.
Oh, and don't forget to check out my review of Summer Wars, In Summer Wars, Dorothy Can't Hack This OZ. If you want to share the love, or just get a conversation going, go ahead and leave me a comment.
