    "Nickelodeon Nostalgia" by NAS Storyboard Artist Aaron Austin

    I’ve been at Nickelodeon for about 3 months now, and I wanted to make something that paid homage to the Nickelodeon cartoons I grew up with. It’s amazing how much a cartoon can mean to you even after so many years. I’m so grateful I have the opportunity to help create shows for today’s kids!” -Aaron

  9. "

    Today little sister cracks open
    a second egg and mom’s eyes
    dart across the kitchen.

    'You are not supposed to eat
    more than one egg a day
    you know that is far
    too much cholesterol.’

    The first meal I ate at the hospital
    was a two-egged omelette
    drenched in cheese.
    My mother sat across from me
    while the nurses and social workers
    retaught her how to feed me.

    They told her I was not allowed
    to hide cheese under my plate,
    or pick off the tortilla shell
    and avoid the egg yolk.

    They told her there were new rules, now
    3000 to 5000 calories a day,
    every day
    no more sugar-free jello
    egg whites
    and tea

    That night we went to the grocery store
    and felt the world tilt upside down
    We walked passed the low fat,
    no cholesterol
    Until we hit the goldmine:
    poppyseed muffins,
    ice cream bars
    whole milk
    full fat butter.
    Foods that would make my heart beat regularly again
    and put life back in my eyes.

    Today I tell my mother I think it is fine
    for little sister to eat two eggs,
    cholesterol be damned.

    But she looks me in the eye and says
    “It’s different for you.”

    This is the same phrase she repeats
    when I ask her why she does not want us to cook noodles
    for mother’s day dinner
    or why she is not eating sugar
    this week.

    It is a phrase which means:
    because you showed so much control
    that you grew out of control
    You are Hereby Exempt
    from the Dieting Culture

    It is a phrase which means,
    ‘I am drawing a firm line
    between the South Beach diet
    The No-Carb diet
    The No-Sugar diet
    The Atkins diet
    The You Are Inherently Flawed and in Need of Fixing

    and illness.’

    Because nobody likes to think about the fact
    that perhaps we are all playing with fire
    that perhaps The American Dream
    (and by this I mean weight loss)
    is nothing but a smokescreen.
    That perhaps shrinking oneself successfully
    does not actually move mountains,
    paint your soul in bright gold,
    or part the seas.

    That perhaps making ourselves disappear
    won’t fix the real problems
    our good intentions will never
    pave the path to heaven.

    Tomorrow when I wake up
    I am going to breathe in the morning air
    and thank the universe for poppyseed muffins,
    ice cream bars
    whole milk
    full fat butter

    I am going to change the world

    and fry two eggs for breakfast.
