Mr. Cellophane

In a location adjacent to a place in a city of some significance, what comes out of my head is plastered on the walls of this blog.

All of the animated shorts are online, as I mentioned before, and so, I'm catching up on viewing them.

Head Over Heels - The spice having gone out of their marriage, a couple deals with a peculiar living arrangement. This stop-motion short is ceaselessly brilliant in its depiction of the couple's life, leading to a touching finale.

Fresh Guacamole - Need a new guacamole recipe for your upcoming party? Maybe, you'd best look elsewhere. Impressively crafted, even if it leaves you with a distinct feeling of 'whuh?!'. Still, I can certainly see how it received a nomination.

Adam and Dog - Every one knows that a dog is man's best friend, but who knew he was man's first best friend? Beautifully animated (with, to me, traces of anime and Don Bluth) and very heartwarming.

Paperman - A young man's once-in-a-lifetime meeting with a girl might not have to be so once-in-a-lifetime. This strikingly designed short is just as inventive and enchanting as it was when it played before Wreck-It Ralph.

The Longest Daycare - In the midst of a soul-crushing daycare session, Maggie Simpson tries to save a butterfly. Good animation and some good moments, but, much like Maggie's classification, 'nothing special'. Something of a no-hoper compared to the rest of the pack.

"Paperman" is the popular favorite, but if you want to talk upset..."Head Over Heels".
