I’m auditing a Flash class this semester at SFCC, which is sorta exciting,
& it became a good reason to finally watch this entertaining 2D animation, which I’m glad I did.
This is an amazing movie made in Flash by Nina Paley, loosely retelling the Ramayana (an old Indian legend), while paralleling a modern day break-up story, & featuring the 1920s music of jazz singer Annette Hanshaw.
The visuals are so beautiful, & Sita Sings The Blues was awarded “Best Animation” at the 2008 Santa Fe Film Festival.
You can watch it here at Reel 13. More Info About The Movie Here.

Freaky events avalanches are, Canada has a whole site dedicated to them, which you can find here, & they’ve been spotted on Mars too now, by NASA.

in the meantime, if you’re really curious about who is this random person anyway?, I humbly offer some ramblings from my personal life here while it still lasts (vox, that blog host, is shutting down at the end of this month) so as to fill the gap here where iapetus has been severly lacking in new material
