I've got a big rant coming up (I CAN FEEL IT IN MY GUT) about Vito Acconci's visit last Thursday, but time is tight.
BIG SECRETS REVEALED! I'm writing a paper comparing Max Fleisher to Will Eisner and bam, I get hit with a fact that I never garnered from anything I've ever read.

I like this because it's still a character animation.
