Moire of lines against lines is also how the car headlights were put on the roads in this old vector-based cg animated intro to 'Night Flight' (if anyone remembers that show)

If you imagine the moire between white radiating lines on black and other white radiating lines on black -- where white becomes clear and black opaque on film -- that's how the glints radiating from the torch were done on the old Columbia logo.

I really don't know what to think about all this stuff. When it is criticized I take it personally because I like it and I even create art that is sexually charged. My initial reaction to the complaint about a lack of objectified males is a degree of irritation, and I ask, "is there a demand? If we make some do you promise to at least make an effort to consume it?" Or, "if you want to see other kinds of games and comics then by all means make some." But if I try to see it from the other side, then I guess the fear is that comics that are never seen or read by woman are nevertheless going to impact their lives because people raised on them will take those women less seriously as equally qualified men. that raises some questions, such as "is that actually what is happening?" and "if so then what -- if anything -- can we or should we do about it?"

It means some ignorant redneck shot the poor thing's mother, probably. He's so cute, I'm grateful there was a wildlife group there to save him from a slow, horrible death.

I don't think that the waste of building infrastructure for Olympic Games is sustainable in the long run. I'd like to see a permanent home for the Summer & Winter games in a place that is safe & appropriate. Then let a different country "host" the games each time. They would provide the opening ceremony entertainment, the theme for the Olympics, etc.

The Zoo America website has an entry about mountain lions, so maybe they have some already there to provide companionship for this little guy. I understand why he'll have to be a zoo animal, but it would be tragic if he were all by himself there.

Pretty easy to make. Board, stapler, large sheet of plastic. Hit me up for directions. be warned, unless you have a large, level area it will all end in tears.

I see the 20-year-old, green, Ford Escort station wagon isn't on the list. My car it theft-proof!

I used to fly models at Nothwick Park in Harrow. There was a crow that really didn't like my glider going past her tree. She was never bothered by power planes, but gliders really got her goat. Usually she just escorted them off the premises, but occasionally she'd savage one.

Incredible. They nailed that scene frame for frame. Part of me had hoped that they would go ahead and do the rest of the movie, but the destruction would have been quite expensive, and since they donated money to ALS instead, I can deal with it.

I watched video for a few of these rescues. It's heartbreaking and heartwarming. Glad there are people out there with the resources and will to help.

These are hard to look at, but thank God we have people that will do something rather than turn their head away because they can't handle the sight of a hurt animal.
