I knew something fishy was about Disney

in recent years Disney has delivered to the main stream media some truly disturbingly successful things... for example 'Hannah Montana', and 'High School Musical'. These things cost parents hundreds of dollars for the live shows that they feel the must take their children to see these produced things.

This video explains how Disney is able to have so many successes.

cats are awesome...

I havn't found much that has been blog worthy recently... so it's been kind of dead around here,

This cat though is awesome... it's like something out of a horror movie... and I'm not talking the 'wait for it... wait for it... wait for i-BOO!!!' style of horror... I'm talking the 'you know this is coming and your in shit' kind of horror flick which is clearly the more valid of the two styles.

Post-It notes are fuuuuun

life has been slow in the interest dept for me recently so I was very happy to find this.

Brought to us by the creators of the Diet Coke and Mentos videos. This time they have taken on the world of office supplies and created something amazing from over a quarter of a million Post-It notes... I always have to enjoy something that is so excellent and at the same time so deliciously simple.

Life is like clockwork sometimes

and sometimes it's not... but when it is this is how I feel.


I really thought that it was a neat animation, with a lot of excellent little accommodations for the nature of their little clockwork lives.

and some excitement in the world of TV DVDs... Pushing Daisies is finally going to be purchasable on September 16th. With the few episodes that I saw were so original and imaginative... it's no wonder that it got canceled, because lord knows that any show worth its salt is destined to get canned within it's first season: Firefly, Clone High, Clerks, and do a certain extent Carnivale and Dead Like Me (both of which had a second season but still were canceled before their time)

The Star Trek Love Boat: new this fall on Fox

no... I'm kidding... but someone did have the sense to clip together the theme from 'The Love Boat' and the opening of 'Star Trek Next Gen.' together: found here.

I think I've watched that earth destruction video from yesterday's post about 7 times, I find the initial impact hypnotizing where the surface of the earth is peeling away into space.

There appears to be a new blogish thing from ZeFrank, I'm simply excited to see any new videos from the web guru.

Here it is: The Explicit

It's a Tenuous thing... this living...

I feel that this is pretty self explanatory... hang on until the end of the video the killer bit of info is within the last 10 seconds of it.

that's all for now...

returning to the big city for a few days, I'll continue to post as I can...

Talk at you later

Forensics that I can get into...

Those who know me may have heard me say at some point that 'I don't watch CSI' well to be honest this holds true for most of the Crime Drama / Forensics shows that are on the air now or that ever have been. I find most of the stories formulaic to the point that you could set a clock to when they find the break in the case. I will however admit to having enjoyed a the odd episode (and by odd I mean episodes that are odd like the Noah's Arc ep of CSI)

Now... whenever I see the name 'Bill Murray' come up I instantly investigate, and anything which is able to parody the Forensic style show (quite successfully might I add) and include Bill Murray is a winner in my book...

My mother's new computer...

So those who know me also know that I am a long time advocate of the PC computer where I am able to fine tune anything I want, however today my mother purchased a new MacBook, and I gotta say... I'm a little jealous, helping her to set it up was a dream... it did all the work... there's no more fun of frustration and yelling... wait something about that sounds wrong...

for the last 3 years I have been working very successfully on a 17" widescreen Gateway laptop. This beast has been a very solid machine, however heavy and I would like one that I can transport a little easier than what I have now, and keep this still viable machine to design, and game on.

And with Vista kinda just being bothersome in terms of look, and the bugs that are STILL getting worked out... I really look at the Apple MacBook, and say... well... yeah that makes sense. Also, having one of each style of computer has it's advantages at this point, it is so simple to transfer between the two formats that it really no longer matters which one you have.

in any event... this is a long time hold out thinking about... submitting sleightly to popular opinion, and considering giving in. (those I went to post secondary school with through 2nd-4th year may now proceed to make fun of me)

Jacob Bronowski: What is Science?

This video of Jacob Bronowski is possibly... one of the most elegant descriptions of what science and the pursuit of knowledge is really about. Including the admittance that with one argument a theory can be proven incorrect, and if we don't know the answer to something, that things are going to be alright. And that to have absolute truth, and faith in something is possibly more dangerous than any scientific research.

Why is it so hard to say 'I don't know' because when you really get down to it, that's what this is about... and if you 'know' then where's the fun in life?... there's nothing to learn anymore.


Dali in interview, and other excellence

I really wish that we could see more Saturday morning cartoons that were this messed up... it would force children to actually stop and question what they see instead of simply having the television pander half hour long advertisements.

Speaking of questioning the status-quo: Timmy's Wish, was sent to me by a buddy, and I felt that it was brilliant at messing with accepted ideas

Also - I have started doing sketches for the Tarot deck, if anyone wants to contribute art or something of the nature, I'm not gonna say no. If you have a favorite card do a drawing. I started with the Juggler, and have been able to keep much of the context of the card as well as have some more interesting art ideas, I will post the sketch when I am able to scan it.

that's all that I found to be inspiring today
