Aaron's Thing of the Week - 16/07/09: Odd and Beautiful

Posted By on Thu, Jul 16, 2009 at 4:05 PM

I know it isn't Wednesday afternoon, but I wanted to keep Stan Musial at the top of the list yesterday. Thus, we have here a special Thursday edition of Aaron's Things. 

I'll be perfectly honest with you: this is really pretty weird. It's a youtube video, like usual, and it's apparently a student video someone made out of Tim Burton's short story, "The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy." I've owned a copy of the book for years, but only recently happened across this little gem. 

If you're not familiar with the story, check the book out. As a devotee of virtually everything Tim Burton, I can't recommend it highly enough. And to whoever it was that created this film, I can only stand and applaud.
