I'm doing my normal thing of having a Disney movie on while I do homework (I like to paint with a movie on in the background) and I'm watching Sleeping Beauty for the first time since I was a kid. I haven't watched it in years since it was my little brother's favorite movie for a time and he watched it over, and over, and over, and over... Plus as an adult, I mean, well, who really wants to watch a movie where the heroine sleeps? Come on.

However! Watching it now, I'm amazed at how very well done it is. The animation is superb. The character designs are awesome (and so very sixties mod! Just look at those colors!) and I'm really digging on it.

Plus. Bill Peet. I love Bill Peet.

(animation nerd OUT!)

I finally found out where my crocodile icon came from. It comes from an online javascript game called The Asylum: Psychiatric Clinic for Abused Cuddly Toys. It's exactly what it sounds like on the tin.

There's a more detailed analysis here and a walkthrough in the comments section here but the gist of it is you are a mental health professional trying to help traumatised stuffed animals. You can do things like Talk Therapy, Art Therapy, Dream Analysis, all so you can find out their tragic backstory and properly diagnose and treat these animals.

So my icon is even more apt, since he (Kroko) is an anxious nervous wreck, just like me!

This game is fantastic, it's got a warped sense of humor and it tugs at ye olde heartstrings. I just wanna help these widdle guys!

(They even have the actual stuffed animals for sale. Too bad Christmas is 6 months away.)
