Indefinite Postponal!

Unfortunately, due to time commitments and a lack of artistic skill, I am postponing the creation of the webseries Fluff & Bone indefinitely. That being said, the idea is not dead... rather, I am trying to convert it to another medium; one that I am far less likely to ever have a chance to make.

Because while a Fluff & Bone webseries would be fun, an animated Fluff & Bone television series would be so much better.

Also, I actually plan to use this blog for blogging purposes in the near future.

2011 in Film

Oscar nominees will be announced tomorrow morning, so I've been reflecting on the movies from 2011 and compiling a list of ones that I will need to catch before the ceremony on the 26th of February. Any recommendations for 2011 films that I have overlooked?

I'll do a best of the year list a few days before the Oscars, as well as a prediction of who will win. Because predicting things is almost as much fun as making lists!
