hello to everyone who still cares to visit this place... i just wanted to throw in a 'happy holidays' along with a tip-off about an animated short by Jan Leniča, "Labirynt," (if Borges ever had had the delight to see this?) which i discovered minutes ago via 'iwa ni hana'. the dark, bleak landscape, the skeleton (albeit not of a bird), the fence and the spear... all rang a bell, leading me to suggest that this little piece was of some inspiration for Mamoru Oshii & his work on "Angel's Egg".

i couldn't find it anywhere but on youtube so far, so kudos go to the person who uploaded it there. part 1 / part 2

Well, after a first quick viewing, this little beautiful film looks like an animated version of a Max Ernst collage like Une Semaine de Bonté, which you can follow in its intirety here :

I found your blog some months ago, while searching for downloads of Maki Asakawa, and I think it's time to say that I really enjoy reading your blog. The things you upload, wheter I like them or not, are always interesting. So thank you very much!

I think I have some Asakawa albums which I haven't seen up in your blog. If you are interested I can upload them.

Oh, merry Christmas, btw!

Happy New Year, my love!

I wish you a wonderful and very cool 2009.

Your blog is a treasure. In fact, the word "blog" is too ugly for it....we need a better word.

Jessica,
I see you are looking for GEDO. I found it here... (1974)http://sharebee.com/41dbe2c1

I am also trying to complete my Japrocksampler top 50 list. As well as needing the ones you also need, I am looking for...
Seishokki 1975-1977
and
Magical Power Mako - Jump
The latter should be easy to find but I can't find it anywhere! Thank you for you great blog!

I first saw this film in the 60s, when I was a child and it made an immense impression on me! I think that much of my style in drawing comes from the initial, intense shock I recieved from this film 40 years ago!

thanks, again!
