A(lma)fraid of dolls:

Share This Post

February 19th, 2010

ALMA 01w 1024x576 A(lma)fraid of dolls: Juvenile admission since it starts off so innocently, but I was spooked out by the entire premise of the following from Pixar animator Rodrigo Blaas. I just knew something was afoot from the first glance of that f***ing doll in the window, when I instinctively started thinking “Don’t do it, kid!”

Just going to throw it out there that these irrational pangs of fear may have tainted any artistic objectivity I have for an otherwise extremely well-done animation.I don’t want to be a spoiler here, but dolls are creepy. Especially when they poltergeist from place to place and you eventually become one. Yikes.

Doll-related anxiety aside, I appreciate this short film, as do the many who have sung its praises in the animation world, but I especially appreciate that it came out last Christmas to teach those damn kids a lesson about vanity and/or irrational wants. *shudder*

    Wow, this was a really quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and never seem to get something done.

    Mistakes are a part of being human. Appreciate your mistakes for what they are: precious life lessons that can only be learned the hard way. Unless it’s a fatal mistake, which, at least, others can learn from.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
