It's the time for year-end playlists.
[EDITED MID 2014, STATEMENT ABOUT MILSOM RETRACTED, VIDEO REMOVED]
The video's directed by Chris Bingham, who's a YouTuber that I began to really like this year. He's done some of the craziest videos I've seen all year.
What's also cool is Welcome to Night Vale, a podcast/audio dramady about a the public radio station of a fictional town where all this ridiculous stuff happens and it's totally normal. What I love about it is that very few character descriptions are given, so everyone's interpretations are both true and false. Even as a cartoonist like myself, I can't bring myself to draw anything WtNV related. It has a really weird sense of humor, so if you like absurd things, I totally recommend it, it's not just the Glow Cloud sending subliminal messages to manipulate you into listening.
Lastly, Nimona by Noelle Stevenson. It's a webcomic that beautifully blends medieval fantasy with futuristic sci-fi, almost as if it's told centuries from now. It follows the dastardly plans of Ballister Blackheart and Nimona, a supervillan and his shape-shifting sidekick, respectively. I love the art and as the plot goes on, it gets harder to tell who's good and who's evil.
I realize now that this really isn't a playlist, but whatever. You know what I mean.
