Neil Gaiman’s Dark Christmas Poem Animated

39 Degrees North, a Bei­jing motion graph­ics stu­dio, start­ed devel­op­ing an uncon­ven­tion­al Christ­mas card this year. And once they got going, there was no turn­ing back. Above, we have the end result – an ani­mat­ed ver­sion of the uber dark Christ­mas poem (read text here) writ­ten by Neil Gaiman, the best­selling author of sci-fi and fan­ta­sy short sto­ries. The poem was pub­lished in Gaiman’s col­lec­tion Smoke and Mir­rors.

    Sor­ry to go off top­ic of the dark card, but I want­ed to alert peo­ple that in today’s Huff­Po, Al Franken has an alarm­ing arti­cle on how the U.S. FCC is now mak­ing rul­ings that threat­en net neu­tral­i­ty for get­ting sites like this one on mobile broad­band devices. The FCC is also not ban­ning the “paid pri­or­i­ti­za­tion” that could let cor­po­rate blogs buy the fast lane, putting our sites in the slow.

    The out­cry from inde­pen­dent web­sites was cru­cial yes­ter­day in improv­ing the FCC rul­ing. But we need to stay alert and inform each oth­er as new threats come up. We need a com­mu­ni­ty of Paul Revere web blog­gers.
