Clear your calendars for 2010. Tim Burton is making an adaptation of Alice in Wonderland beginning in May 2008. It’s currently scheduled for release in 2010, so it may actually be too early to put together solid plans. I haven’t heard much, but I know it’s supposed to be animated 3D – not quite like… Continue reading 2010: An Alice Oddessey
I took a morning stroll through man’s disturbing past and read some articles about Ed Gein recently. If you’re planning on reading through this man’s history, you should probably do so a little later in the day. Gein is the man who inspired such characters as Buffalo Bill (Silence of the Lambs), Texas Chainsaw Massacre,… Continue reading Ed Gein
In regards to that last post, I was just reminded that I have an old Realistic receiver in the living room – above my 19″ TV – that is currently running on tubes. I mean, yeah. That’s cool for the tube thing. But really…how many watts am I burning on them? They do glow afterall,… Continue reading Speaking of the 21st Century
Tomorrow evening we’re heading out to BODIES, The Exhibition at the Atlanta Civic Center. I only just heard about it from the co-workers Friday, but it really sounded like something right up my alley. It’s being marketed as an artistic presentation of human anatomy. The models are made from human cadavers, and then preserved using… Continue reading BODIES, The Exhibition (Atlanta)
On Halloween night I won a costume contest when I made an appearance at the local “Coffee Shop of Horrors.” I was dressed as Chewbacca, and as faithful readers know, pretty darn realistic. Balthazar took place with his costume of a macaw, which Amy did a very good job in making. As a prize for… Continue reading The Master: 12-inch Figure (WARNING Choking Hazard)
We went to Athens’ Athica art gallery to see the RACE show. It’s a bit of an anti-whitey display, but I’m not going to say that the white man hasn’t done some malicious racial activities in the past and present. I’m sure that it will continue into the future, possibly as a result of displays… Continue reading RACE: Enter Personal Politics
I had an “all-hands” meeting today at CheckFree in which we discussed our division’s strengths and weaknesses. One of the things I gleaned from this was that there is a desire by upper management for solutions to be simple, instrumented, and bullet-proof when they’re handed off. This rings true in many people’s minds, I think.… Continue reading Simple, Instrumented, Bullet-Proof
When I was very young, I distinctly remember wetting the bed. More importantly, I remember why I wet the bed. In all cases I can recall, there was a very realistic dream in which I rose from bed and stumbled into the bathroom to pee. The realism peaked when the warmth of my own urine… Continue reading Pee Your Bed Much?
Last night we played a while at the office a good many rounds of Halo 2. We were hoping for more people, but the six we had was a good number to readjust to the new game. I bought a new, Logitech wireless controller for the festivities. It worked out very well all evening with… Continue reading Halo 2: First Look (Personally)
You laugh now, but try searching for your name in Google’s image search. This is “Olaf”, the photorealistic centaur. This image came from Freak Aspect’s Internet gallery. You can see it here.
