world without men, amen. amen.

somehow, for the first time in twenty years i'm getting in a genuine "holiday spirit"... so here's a long-forgotten MGM animation from 1938 or 1939 (important to note it was produced before the official onset of WWII, though i'd place the starting whistle at the 1936 war in Mongolia) called "peace on earth". i remember seeing it when i was 5 or 6 years old, and being hit with a barrage of emotions i couldn't place or define until much later. this cartoon always haunted me, and is probably one of the most influential pieces of art i was exposed to as a child.
