So, immediately after I posted this morning's entry, I discovered that Christiane Cegavske, Little Miss Crow, my new stop-motion infatuation, is Christa's (faustfatale) neighbor. Small frelling world, yes. I just checked out her website, and you should, too (follow the link above, click'a da name). Be sure to watch the clip from The Doll Maker.
