    Freak, I’m so ridiculously tired right now, my biological clock is completely screwed up. I would love to go though… Thanks for the heads up, your blog is absolutely useful.

    Hey, I love ASIFA and David Levy was my teacher once, so I was really sad find out that I missed not one but TWO meetings that were held right here at NYU! Usually I rely on NYU’s SAL emails, but there weren’t any, so can you make sure to send a notice to the Student Animation League next time? Email this guy: He’s the president Harry Teitelman.

    PS – is it snowing on this page or am i hallucinating

    Hey Tristian, our events our always listed on our website at in the calendar area and the newest one is always on the front page of the site. Check it frequently as it’s updated all the time. We don’t post all the asifa events coming up on the blog but our calendar covers this at the regular site.

    And yes, it is totally snowing on the blog. It’s a new wordpress feature. I thought it was the coolest thing, so it will be snowing on the blog for the winter season, or until WordPress gets rid of the new feature, whichever is shorter.
