Ten Anime Series You Should See Before You Die

Ten Anime Series You Should See Before You Die
First off I’d just like to say a huge thank you to everyone that read my list of ten anime films you should see before you die—the response has been phenomenal—not just the number of people who read it, but also those who took the time out to get involved in the following discussion. Some people loved my selections, some people thought I was well off the mark, but it was clear that there was no way I was going to be able to avoid putting together another list, this time of TV series. It has been a far harder list to compile. Not only because of the vast selection to choose from, but also because I knew from the start that I would be leaving out some shows that a lot of people hold very dear. As such, I hope that at least some of you will read the next paragraph first before scrolling down the list to see what is missing and getting upset. Cowboy Bebop (1998) - 26 episodes Paranoia Agent (2004) - 13 episodes Gunslinger Girl (2003) - 13 episodes Future Boy Conan (1978) - 26 episodes Related:  zupercoolUnique

Year In Review: The 11 Best Short Films of 2011 Over the course of the year, curating the Short Film of the Day feature has given me a deep and affecting appreciation of the art form. Before, I hadn’t given much thought to the little bastards, but the truth is that they are incredibly versatile and representative of the boundaries that film can break. They can be jokes told well or human dramas driven home. They can be a perfect bite or demand to be expanded into a full meal. They can feel classic or break out into the long, strange realm of experimentation. They are so much more than movies with short runtimes. There’s one difficulty in judging them, though. The other (small) problem is that sometimes short films spend a long time touring festivals and otherwise being unavailable online. 11. In this sweetly dark comedy from writer/director Bradley Jackson features Ralph Winston (Keir O’Donnell) as a children’s party clown who has never cried in his entire life. 10. 9. 8. Absurdity lives. 7. 6. Spike Jonze.

Inside Mike D's Brooklyn Townhouse Mike Diamond - the founding member of the Beastie Boys - recently let The New York Times have a snoop around his spacious 3,200-square-foot Brooklyn townhouse, which he shares with his wife Tamra Davis and their two sons. The couple have now been living in the house for a year and a half, following from an extensive $500,000 six month long renovation process. Prior to moving, the family lived in a TriBeCa loft, but speaking to the NYT the couple say the change was worth it. Their older son can now walk home from school by himself, something which Mike D was never able to do growing up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. "It was traumatic," he said. www.nytimes.com

Listverse The Living Cube by Till Koenneker Germany-born, Switzerland-based designer Till Koenneker took matters into his own hands when he moved into a studio apartment that had no storage. Building a simple cube-like design, called The Living Cube, he found space for his vinyl collection, TV, clothes, and shoes. On top of the cube, Koenneker was able to incorporate a bed for guests and inside houses a much-needed storage space. Koenneker sketched out his ideas and had them built by Remo Zimmerli. Working with the space he had, The Living Cube, essentially a large piece of furniture, was built for his personal needs and solves a lot of issues. I loved that they used virtually ever square inch of the cube and made it functional. Photos by Rob Lewis.
