"I consider 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas' to be comfort reading, I like the al pastor tacos at Tacos Mexico and I count among my literary influences the Chainsaw from 'Doom'. 'RRRRRR! You don't like that, do you, Mr. Undead Marine! RRRRRR!'"

My literary influences include Ray Bradbury, Lewis Carroll, and Douglas Adams. I also program as a hobby, and currently maintain the Gtk port of Angband. You can find a rather old bio of me here."

7-19-09 Kolobok

Posted by Sean on July 19, 2009

Shanoah’s still out in California, hunting down the wily snipe (and if I know him, he’ll manage to bag one).

Anyway, continuting the Russian animation train, here’s another one translated by Niffiwan. It’s Kolobok (credits here), based on an Eastern European fairy tale similar to the Gingerbread Man. I recommend reading this English translation the original fairy tale, with some nifty illustrations, here, before you see what the animators did with the story.

By the way, if you can’t see the closed captions (especially Part 2), click on that little triangle in the lower right corner of the viewer and turn them on.
