Best Christmas Card Ever

I got a couple Christmas cards in the mail the other day, and one of them I just had to share. My mother's yearly handmade card was beautiful as always, but it was the card from Greg Machlin that had me in hysterics. (Unless you've seen Don Hertzfeldt's brilliant short, Rejected, you won't get the references. Actually, come to think of it, the original animation really doesn't explain a thing.)

Greg and I saw Rejected a number of years ago, as part of one of the Spike & Mike animation festivals. I'm sure if you try hard enough, you can find a bootleg copy online somewhere, or find someone that already has… ;) Definitely check out the rest of Hertzfeldt's stuff. I just wasted a good half hour on his rrrrrr page. The man is a genius.

    I just bought Rejected on DVD. How obsessed am I?

    If I’d been *really* sharp, I would’ve had the cloud guy bleeding and headless on the underside of the envelope after you tear it.
