This cartoon starts out as pretty standard Krazy Kat style fare, but moves sort of like a helium balloon that slips out of your hand, getting further and further from reality until by the end it is almost unrecognizable. Skip ahead to the graveyard part at 2:15 if your patience for watching a cartoon dog chase a bird around a tree stump wears thin (although I can’t imagine how that is possible). Fleisher Studios also produced an illustrated explanation of the Theory of Relativity that I’m hoping to track down sometime.
Also: For the benefit of friends and family who have an interest in this year’s World Cup but don’t know much about the teams, I’ve made a shared Google calendar (available here) that has most of the game times and channels and a paragraph or two describing what to watch for in each game (times in CST). I’ve only completed it through the weekend so far but everyone else in my department is in a three hour long meeting, so I stand to make some progress today. I could go on about the significance of it being in Africa, the subplots, whatever, but I’m not sure if this is the right venue.
