Twit Archive 1-24 August 2011


Above, from Hans Fischerkoesen’s 1943 cartoon Scherzo: Verwitterte Melodie / Weather-Beaten Melody, produced in Nazi Germany. The image comes from the website of Animateka 2012, an animation festival held last month in Lubljana, Slovenia, and is either a production sketch or a piece of promotional artwork, rather than a still.

As linked to in a tweet below, you can see the short and find out more about Hans Fischerkoesen at Michael Sporn’s Splog.

Other tweets below the fold on the liberation of Tripoli, Libya. Also Syria, Afghanistan, and more film, music, and art.
