    Hello Michael,

    Thanks for helping spread the word about the MOCCA event and the asifa east festival.
    Last night at MOCCA was a lot of fun. It was a very informal group conversation. The audience spent a lot time asking copyright questions and then detoured into all sorts of Disney conspiracy theories. I had to gently stear them back on message.

    MOCCA has a neat exhibit up of original art from decades of Saturday Morning animation. Yes, it’s probably the low point of our artform, but, it’s still kind of neat to see so much of it smacked onto the walls.
