Nina Paley is great. After her unforgettable animation Sita Sings the Blues, she’s kept her historical interests going and seem to be animating the Old Testament now, starting with the ten plagues of Egypt. See her very generously posted rough edit of The First Plague (Blood), and accompanying, impeccable blues soundtrack.

Also take your flocks and your herds, as ye have said, and be gone; and bless me also.  –Exodus 12, KJV

I learned from my mother that there is a greatness in all of us, and that all of us are delivered to this world with a mission. I believe that life is a journey, often difficult and sometimes incredibly cruel, but we are well equipped for it only we tap into our talents and gifts and allow them to blossom.
—  Les Brown, Live Your Dreams

if this doesn’t make your life, I don’t know what will…


so so good!
