Not sure when this first appeared on the web, but picked this up a bit ago from a tweet by @tosumitgupta.
Timeout.com released a list of their top 50 animated films of all time, featuring pithy reviews and periodic commentary by Terry Gilliam, Monty Python alum and one of my favorite filmmakers (See Brazil, Time Bandits, not to mention all your favorite Monty Python movies).
Here’s a link to the first page of the list.
And here’s a taste of what Gilliam has to say. This bit is about Trey Parker, Matt Stone, and South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut:
“These are my children! They’re brilliant. With the film, I was convinced they couldn’t pull it off because I just didn’t think it would sustain for 90 minutes. But of course it does, and it’s just brilliant. They’ve been able to maintain their outrageousness, their awfulness. They’re uncompromising, that’s why I love them.”

There’s something very unsettling about this picture:
From what I can gather, the red car on the left was moving and crashed into the stationery purple car on the right. The driver, a WDW “cast member”, was killed. What’s really odd is that this happened at two o’clock in the morning. That’s 2am. And apparently a family of six was on the moving car and had to be freed after the crash. What was a family doing on the monorail at 2a? Was this friends of the driver being given a behind the scenes tour gone bad?
Hearts out to the family of the driver. I think what’s really unsettling to me is that DisneyWorld is such a bucolic place, a safe place. If my kids ever got lost at DisneyWorld, I wouldn’t freak. They’ve got a great system in place for the safety of their guests. So something like this really rattles that image.

I’ve avoided posting about Steve, but this article is worth a read. It is not focused on Steve’s health…
