Via BoingBoing (cuz it was on boingboing tv, silly me). I absolutely love everything about this short, the music, the animation, the story… all of it. It reminds me a little bit of Mirrormask.
In other news, if you’re looking for totally painless online backup, I highly recommend Dropbox (yes, I get some free space if you sign up, but really, it’s fantastic). I have it installed on both my laptop and my home machines and it painlessly syncs everything in my dropbox on all three machines. If I get new music I want to make sure gets added to iTunes at home, I throw it in the dropbox. Purchase new apps or a book on PDF? It goes in the dropbox. It’s awesome.
