Wow, could we have some more bad news, please? I’m just itching for some more tragedy in the world, aren’t you? Let’s see, thousands upon thousands dead in Asia, America’s First Amendment getting beaten like a red-headed stepchild, and now in Britain, word that Aardman Animation’s building is gone.
That’s right. Gone. Everything from Creature Comforts, from the first three Wallace and Gromit shorts, Chicken Run all of it. Burned up and gone. And if the one picture I’ve seen from the CNN site is any indicator, it’s a complete wash.
The timing is way too convenient for this: right after opening weekend of their second feature film in the U.S.? Who’s responsible? Joss Whedon? Because Serenity is getting great reviews but outperformed by clay miniatures? I don’t know. I’m way too goddamn depressed now.
