Everyone be sure to watch BlinkyTM before it's gone. Your last chance to see it when it's an official check!
My father didn’t have the skill of a professional cameraman. The result? Avant-garde cinema.

I'm glad that BlinkyTM will be gone but I'm a bit disappointed that we won't get another huge discussion on it in the results. :P

It's a huge heap of crap.

We could start a movement to get everyone to uncheck it until after the list is finalized.

I liked Blinky alright... If it was eligible, I'd probably vote for it. Need to watch External World, however.

We could use more early shorts in the list

Updated list

I'm trying to make an effort to watch more of these. Only 1 of the 30 shorts has reached 400 checks so far.

Just watched Året gjennom Børfjord (1991) which I'd highly recommend and I'll add to my list for September 2018. #7 on 500<400 and only 212 checks.

Don't think anyone asked so I'm not sure how much demand there was but updated it anyway.

I read his post that it took you a while to watch Året gjennom Børfjord.

Incredible that it still has only just over 200 checks. Makes you wonder if it could be #1 in the future.
