Tortoro is on the right. (I think.) Totoro is a giant, friendly forest spirit. He spends most of his time sleeping in a hole in a tree. He doesn’t speak, instead communicating by loud bellows that, it seems, only the other Totoros and the Cat Bus can understand. He is very friendly to Mei and Satsuki. He can make trees grow much faster than normal.

My Neighbor Totoro  is a 1988 Japanese animated fantasy film which tells the story of the two young daughters (Satsuki and Mei) of a professor and their interactions with friendly wood spirits in postwar rural Japan. The film won the Animage Anime Grand Prix prize and the Mainichi Film Award for Best Film in 1988.

A Highly Condensed Happiness Espresso…

“Hello, I Like You” is a short two-minute film which is described by its creators, Brooklyn’s Mixtape Club, as a “highly condensed happiness espresso.”  It was originally commissioned to convey happiness.  I think they nail it.  I’ve watched it 7 times before posting.  It’s a sensory experience for the ears, eyes and head.  (Turn volume up now)
