Overflowing with enthusiasm/lacking in focus as we are wont to be, an outlet is needed to digress on those many compact cartoon curios that may not make their way to a full bore recording. Thus our Sublimations to that effect, including a catch-up with the cunning Kaguya-sama: Love Is War ahead of its third series; the rising fortunes of Youtube satirist Joel Haver; M.O.D.O.K. is A-OK; and a perilous journey over to The Far Side. My my, isn’t that cute?

Who would live in a house like this? An international team of talented stop-motion animators of course, bringing their skills to bear in a macabre anthology piece about the home renovation from hell. Laborious, time-consuming and requiring considerable skill & patience, this naturally prompts a discussion about the surprisingly healthy state of stop-motion animation in a modern industry where shortcuts are relentlessly sought out. It’s busted; it’s dangerous; but it’s ours! Come on in, take off your shoes, put your feet up and let your soul reside here forever!

Or do such respected major publications as Time Magazine, Gentleman’s Quarterly and that one dude you know off Twitter really gotta drum up some traffic? We’ll sort the cromulent truths from the entertaining lies and peer within the Springfield scrying glass to make a few prophecies of our own as The Secret Of The Sailor Madness is preached unto the world anew!
