“My Animated Day”

I’ve always liked stop-motion animation. It’s egalitarian. Anybody with a tripod and incredible patience can do it, but it’s rarely done well.

This is done really well. It’s a short stop-motion film by Jelle van Dun called “My Animated Day”.

If you want to visit Mr. van Dun’s website, it’s, but unless you speak Dutch, it’s not going to do you much good.

Honey, why is the water bill so high?

Clearly I’m on a roll with toilet-based content, but I couldn’t resist.

I’m gratified by all the attention this clip has garnered. You all should know, however, that this is NOT my cat. I just linked to the clip because I thought it was cute.

Gizmo’s owner is apparently YouTube user nsayer. He has posted another Gizmo clip that is also adorable, Whirlycat.
