JW sent me this cartoon about big dreams.

Last Friday I went to a Buffy Sing Along. Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a television show that actually translates pretty well to the big screen. And certain emotions and implications writ large on the big screen resonate in a way that clicks differently than on the telly.


When Buffy sings her big number at the end and you find out that she was in heaven before her friends decided to bring her back to life, the pain of that experience comes across on the big screen in such an exquisite way. It's devastating. Even when you are sitting there in a theater surrounded by hardcore Buffy fans singing their guts out and playing kazoos.
