    I mentioned this to you weeks ago, but never got any indicated you saw it. Don’t remember now if it was email to Twitter.

    The Guardian writer didn’t mention it, but Cyriak shows an obvious influence of Zbig Rybczynski’s “Tango.” Not to diminish his talent, though.

    And, oops–meant to post the link to “Tango.”

    It won the 1983 Oscar for best animated short, and Rybczynski stepped out for a smoke with his Oscar, couldn’t make himself understood by the security guard when he tried to go back into the auditorium, and spent the night in jail.

    Sorry, Keith — it certainly wasn’t an intentional snub. I’m not actually on Twitter very often, so it’s not the best place to attempt to contact me. Email is best. And I’m working on a way to streamline my email: I get hundreds a day (many not even spam!) and I’m embarking on probably the 165th attempt in the last ten years to be more proactive about keeping on top of it.

    I’m composing an email followup I’ll send shortly. About to tune into the radio show to here what you have to say.

    Also have a look at Pixels, which is set in New York and is very well done indeed:

    Pixels is pretty cool. Saw that one the other day.
