Casual reminder that the cast of the films wanted to do live action reenactments of most of these shorts
WHY DID THAT NOT HAPPEN.
The Children’s Crusade was neither a crusade nor made up primarily of children. It was an unsanctioned popular movement formed in 1212 by Nicholas of Cologne. Thousands of common people, including women and children, followed him to Genoa, where he arrived on August 25th. When the Mediterranean did not part for Nicholas as he had expected, many of his followers left. The rest marched to Rome, where Pope Innocent III praised the group’s zeal but also released them from their “vows”.

How good is your posture? In Japan sitting with a hunched back is known as neko-ze, which translates to mean ‘cat’s back.’ Odds are good that many of us are sporting neko-ze right now as we sit in front of our computers. Poor posture is bad for our backs and can lead to other health issues.
That’s why Japanese toymaker Bandai is putting out this awesome set of eight hunchbacked cat figures, in hopes that slouching office workers will place them beside their computers as a friendly reminder to sit up straight. Say hello to weirdly cute toy kitties and goodbye to neko-ze.
As further encouragement, the series of capsule toys will include four secret cats who sit upright with perfect posture. Right now Bandai is only sharing their silhouettes, so we’ll have to wait until the June 24, 2014 release date to get a better look at them.
