Surrender is imminent, but you can follow the battle as it unfolded on Twitter at #canalnotes.

Because Catbus is beloved by adults and kids alike, The Ghibli Museum in Tokyo is opening an exhibit called “Ride the Catbus to the Ghibli Woods” that will let adults ride the Catbus from My Neighbor Totoro.

YouTuber “kaptainkristian” has created a six minute video extolling the virtues of the beloved Calvin and Hobbes comic strip along with the integrity and vision of its creator, Bill Watterson.

The video takes a look at the strip’s longevity and the state of art itself, explaining that there’s no “low” or “high” art and that works either speak to people or don’t. There’s also an examination of commercialism in the art/comics world that leads to the title of the video itself, Art Before Commerce.
