Just a few more, thanks Gina!

This post is basically a copy cat from my cousin Gina who also happens to love Oscar nominated animated shorts, man that's a mouthful. If you're following right along, I've already posted two, Adam and Dog and Paperman, so I won't repeat them on here to save you on space and hopefully to entice you to keep reading. Anyway, Gina. She is graciously allowing me to borrow her post from the other day and bring you most of the rest of the shorts for this year and last years winner. I've been loving her blog because she's currently going through a year where she has promised to do "one sketch a day" which sometimes include watercolors or pencil or ink. Loving it. She's inspiring me.

Now I know this week and last were filled with a lot of video postings but these are wonderful. And honestly, if this blog is supposed to represent a part of my life, in a way like a diary, then this is truly what I've been up to lately. Videoing out. If you only choose to watch only one, watch last years whimsical piece at the bottom of the post about my inanimate favorite things in the whole world. Books.


But first, another nomination for this years. It's called Head Over Heels and I think you should try it out:


I really liked this one. This style isn't usually my style of animation but this story is.

On to the next.

I probably love guacamole more than most people. For awhile every time my friend Leigha and I got together we were making it to eat with a group of our friends. We'd usually end up eating most of it on our own before we told the others it was ready.


So creative. If you like this one, there's another like it called Western Spaghetti.


And finally, The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore:




I hope you all have wonderful weekends, see you back here on Monday!

  2. The second one was so great!! Loved it :)
    And I absolutely love last year's winner, the music, the animation, the story - all so great :)
    And I think you know what I'm gonna recommend for veg purposes... Dr. Who.
    Honestly, I never thought I'd be one of those people to recommend it, but somehow I got hooked.. It takes watching a couple episodes to get into it because it is utter nonsense, but it is worth it.. If (and that's a big "if) you ever do decide to watch it, I'd say start at the last two or three episodes of the first season and go from there ('cause honestly, the first doctor is not really worth watching)... ok, that Should be my last plug for that show : p
