"Un Chien Andalou" (1929)
Like a lot of people, I thought I was super artsy and cool and obscure as a teenager when I watched this movie after learning about it from The Pixies’ “Debaser.”

Do you remember Eloise by Kay Thompson? Gee, I was crazy about that book when I was little. I need to find it back.
Oh and am I the only one who didn’t know, until today, that Eloise was inspired by Thompson’s goddaughter, Liza Minelli? I have to admit I was totally ignorant about that part ;)

I’ve just finished reading Tomine’s Summer Blonde, and it was a huge slap in the face everytime I finished a story (there are 4 of them). The main characters are definitely what most people would call “total losers”, but they are never crappy enough for the reader not to identify with them. You always end up thinking “well, that “loser” could be me.” And that’s Tomine’s genius IMHO.
Oh and the graphics are so good.
