Provacative diorama seeks not to solve world's problems.

 I'm beginning to really enjoy bldgblog which always seems to have new interesting posts.  Like this one about a guy who marries architecture to story.  The Emperor's Castle is like a little diorama of craziness full of meaning that i just don't quite fully understand as yet.  Check out the Migration of Mel and Judith as well.  I don't really know what it is but I know I'm intrigued and a bit inspired.  And I rarely ask for more than that.

baseball tonight

This is what we pray for in a baseball team.  A bunch of guys of who hear they dont have a chance and say fuck off  Yea, the Giants beat my locals (ATL) but we all felt good about it as it was a close knit and respect filled affair (christ, the braves had nobody left at the end..give us a break) and the giants are doing exactly what you want in a feel good season.  Show your strengths (starting pitching) and stick around.   The Phillies may yet win this series but the Giants are memorable this season for thier Blackbeards and their Pandas...  What would David Justice have been compared to in 95 wonder.   Alas Posey is up and it way past my bedtime.  And baseball can still be potent.

3 animations I've enjoyed immensely

3 excellent animated shorts I watched in the last month that left a lasting impression.

Stand Up - Creepy rotoscoped creepiness.  Nothing says "cant tear your eyes away" like a bad standup comedian flailing away into the blackest parts of their being (Michael Richards anyone?).  Thanks for the headup CartoonBrew.

Salesman Pete - Fun action, memorable visual setups and editing.  A Vimeo spotlight feature.

How Wings are Attached to the Backs of Angels - Another creepsy short.  Rube Goldberg Machines meet otherworldly (even other to the otherworld of this story) Ghost story.  Highlighted in the Myclone Blog.
