Sad to hear about the passing of SpongeBob SquarePants creator Stephen Hillenburg at such a young age. He was a pure soul who loved the ocean and Laurel and Hardy shorts and managed to combine the two to great success. I remember the day after SpongeBob premiered (following the Kids Choice Awards) and we were talking about it at lunch: I was ABSOLUTELY INCENSED because it was a COMPLETE RIP-OFF of Rocko’s Modern Life and how dare they! I learned later, of course, that it was made by most of the same people (Hillenburg had basically taken over for Rocko creator Joe Murray in the last season). Years later I was in an animation program and they screened his shorts, including “Wormholes” which is apparently considered “lost” because it was never uploaded to the internet. Honestly I only vaguely remember it and these notes I took only add to the mystery:

This, coupled with Flickr’s recent announcement that they’re just going to delete your shit if you’re over a 1,000 photo limit (when it used to be 1 terabyte) … not a great start for Flickr’s new owners!
