Time wasters that are worth the time wasted.

This one isn't for kids. It suits the darker side of my humour. Actually when you think about it, it's freaking insane. That's another reason to like it. Be warned it contains violence and horror themes. Death art animation.

Pixar. Who doesn't love everything they do? Kid friendly here.

This computer animated film is so beautifully done. I've watched it several times. There's not a word spoken. End of the world with rag-doll heroes.

If you've seen WALL-E and laughed, try this one, BURN-E. Having real trouble keeping a link on this so if its broken it's worth doing a search on it.

I keep changing stuff around here as links break so check back sometime for new finds.

NaNoWriMo - 2008 - The End

I took a gander at the NaNoWriMo site today. The preliminary stats are in. Almost 20% of people who entered this year finished. That's pretty good going from the 119,301 authors who signed up. Last year it was around 100,000.

Of everyone registered, 21,683 won. That's 18.2% if you need precise figures.

If I was standing in a football field with them all I might not feel special, but sitting here with bleeding fingers, I do.

Till next year.
