warning: bad things happen to these stick men

do you already know Don Hertzfeldt? 
everyone always knows everything before me.  it's okay.  I have other gifts.

I discovered his short film "Billy's Balloon" through Sound Opinions recently, then roamed around the internet and found some others [sidenote:  don't roam around the internet unless you are in the mood for a lot of breasts and kittens].  evidently he is well known, award-winning and Sundance-y.  all I know is that he does a lot with a few drawn lines, a little music and a lot of talent and humor.  some of them get pretty dark and even bloody (for a stick human anyway), so he's not for everyone. 

but overall, I'm just impressed and thankful for him.

everything will be okay...sort of
