dirth of posts

so, i've been on vacation and then recently ill with the summer cold. sorry for not posting more.

just got this off KATU:

[phil] Knight on Tuesday decided to again tap into the well of forgotten names, re-christening Vinton Studios, the Portland animation studio he acquired in 2003, as Laika Entertainment. Laika, for non-space buffs, is the name of the dog the Soviets placed on Sputnik 2 in 1957.

Knight also announced the first feature film from Laika would be "Coraline," an animated take on a popular children's book by Neil Gaiman.

i'm a huge fan of Neil Gaiman and this should be a cool adaptation.

go forward mr knight!

I LOVE Neil Gaiman. I can't wait to see "Coraline" the movie.. I loved the book and have read all of his books.. except for the Sand Man stuff... which i'm going to start very soon.

Sorry to hear you were sick.

FYI - I think i saw you out walking the other day on Skidmore. :)
