Heya!

This is so much fun! Learn a little something about science from interpretive
dance. Or just laugh your head off at how silly it all is.

'"Smaller and Faster" has replaced "Bigger and Better" as the leading
catchphrase of commodities. I reflect this with my miniature paintings

This is largely posted from an a friend who spotted ancient animal plushies
in a museum in Japan, then went to the effort of hunting down stores. I
thought people might appreciate this. Some are very cute. I've checked most
of the links and they appear to be working.

Chinese artist Ju Duoqi does vegetable versions of many iconic European
paintings. I love the Da Vinci toadstools in her version of The Last Supper.
The Birth of Venus using radishes is hilarious.

Ohmigosh! This video explains how you can ascribe numbers to various notes.
Therefore the musician making this video decides to play the numbers for pi to
31 decimal places.

So geeky, it'll make your head explode. It's also quite a lovely and sweet

Silly Versions of Star Trek

You would expect Star Trek fans to do the odd versions of the opening theme to
TOS. But eleven on the awesome meter goes to BUCKINGHAM PALACE GUARD doing a
marching band version of the theme. I wonder if Her Majesty requested this? I
can just imagine the royals being a bunch of crypto-Trekkies. Can't you just
see them greeting one another with "long live and prosper The Queen!"

Nick Pitera is a one person Disney. He plays the heroine, the sidekick, the
hero, the villain, and the chorus...all credibly. Amazing voice, hilarious
execution.

For although they look and feel more like giant goldfish bowls, these latest

With incredible panoramic views of the surrounding countryside, the bizarre
