Satoshi Kon

I just found out that the incredibly talented Satoshi Kon passed away on Aug 24th at the age of 46. He was the director of such movies as: 'Perfect blue', 'Millenium Actress', 'Paprika' and Tokyo GodFathers.

He wrote a document(his parting thoughts..) in his final few days that I felt may be worth sharing. It was originally posted posthumously by his family on his blog and has been translated by Makiko Itoh and is available on her blog here:

If your not weeping into your keyboard by the end- your a stronger man than me...

They are doing a tribute to him over at:

Thanks Donna.
