Maiden Cartoons. Which is exactly what it sounds like, at least if you, like me, prefer heavy riffs to Disney Princesses. Seriously though, these are clearly a labor of love and devotion for the animator. There are far too many to share, but here’s a little taste. If you have a whole afternoon (or two) […]Read more "One For the “Stuff I Didn’t Know About But Needed To” File"
Remember my Halloween Monster Music Video Countdown from a few years back?

Because I am just proud as hell that I spelled that right, in the […]Read more "Word Salad Wednesday – Lordi: Get Heavy"
