I always loved Calvin and Hobbes. In particular, I always loved Calvin’s psychotic snowman creations. Some guy has been recreating them with actual snowmen. It almost makes me miss the snow. No, that’s a lie. It doesn’t even come close to making me miss snow. It is pretty sweet though. And, by sweet I mean [...]

I just got done watching the pilot for the show, NUMB3RS. The always lovely Sabrina Lloyd was in it. I have a Tivo Wishlist set up for shows she’s in, so Tivo was kind enough to record it for me. OK, first things first, the name is just God awful. Seriously, that alone almost guarantees [...]

Klonek — cutesy illustrations and animations with sort of a retro feel. I liked the Woodcut section the best. via
I took a tour of Rancho Los Alamitos today. It’s interesting, and parts of it are very beautiful. It’s also kind of weird. It’s been there since Mexico owned California, but at some point a gated community grew up around it. So, to get to it you have to drive through a ritzy neighborhood, and [...]
I have to remember to go check out Photo L.A. 2005 next week. It looks like an amazing and surprisingly comprehensive show.
I was pointed to the A World of Invisibilia by Waxy, but there is lots of fun stuff on this site
