Would an American security agency chose an Asian car manufacturer to source its flag-ship vehicle? Really?

Late Bloomer

This is well done. And some how, entirely appropriate to the subject matters. The writing is brilliant; the “murk of her skirt…”, I liked in particular. I think the voice characterization was a little over-the-top, but the music was spot-on. thanks to James for the link

Pie-day

Posted: 29th April 2011 by 7ucyClark in food stuffs

Today’s Pie: banana cream Crust was a unique in its crisp character; I do not believe this is as the Pie Master intended, but I found that it crispness went well with the sweet filling, and the resistance it offered contrasted with the creamy nature of said filling. Oh, happy accident! Filling was a three-layered […]

iPhone. A paragon in technology, convenience, and geek status. I’ve held out on the iPhone pretty successfully, but my resistance has been weakening (for a variety of reasons, the least of which not being that I see how much fun Lucy has with hers). But I haven’t yet yielded. Then I saw the ‘Steve Jobs […]

Found this on Geek Tyrant by JimSam-X And at Mondo: and Menagerie found via /Film They’ve also done a Mirror Mirror Trek poster which is particularly good. These fills me with inspiration and frustration in competing values. Must draw more [said in tiny, pinch-mouthed voice… hoping that no one was around]

Time to Eat the Baby!

This is a cake. It looks like a baby. I know it’s a cake… and yet, when the guy starts to portion it out, I can’t quite quell a feeling of discomfort. It’s like watching a dessert version of Hostel. found via Scott Beale/Laughing Squid

So… I’m in the gym on my hamster wheel, and the the monitors are spewing content. I’ll watch a shiny-thing. I am, in fact, compelled. So a Thor spot comes up; I like Thor… I’m hoping it’s good. I want to go see it and like it and buy the DVD. And then… the advertisement […]
