Fastest rabbit in the West

patch_bunny now has, following some intricate adventures with reflective tape, a superbly lapine helmet. Most spiffy. ^_^


In light of the most recent nocona, I should point out something mycroftb discovered: ihasatardis - cat macro-style pics for Doctor Who. =:D And with a lapine theme, as kyootfox found, there's ihasabunny.


v1.0 of the wonderplugin Perian is now available. Amongst other niftiness, it supports Matroska containers, and SSA/SRT subtitles, automagically enabling them for similarly named files. (eg foobar.avi and foobar.srt would just play together) Easily worth installing, if you have 10.4.7 or later, as it also replaces a pile of other individual plugins:

+ AVI, FLV, and MKV file formats
+ MS-MPEG4 v1 & v2, DivX, 3ivX, H.264, FLV1, FSV1, VP6, H263I, VP3, + HuffYUV, FFVHuff, MPEG1 & MPEG2 Video, Fraps, Windows Media Audio v1 & v2, Flash ADPCM, Xiph Vorbis (in Matroska), MPEG Layer II Audio
+ AVI support for: AAC, AC3 Audio, H.264, MPEG4, and VBR MP3
+ Subtitle support for SSA and SRT

And it's not over yet.. "hey, VLC trunk improved a lot, it does SSE2 colorspace conversion in a seperate thread. Our next version is going to move it to OpenGL shaders, though, so I won't bother looking into that."

Prepare to have any remaining fragments of innocence swept away in this hilarious Transformers panel that drhoz found. =:D (And razzlfraz might enjoy one particular anime icon in the comments)

Dinner: 1.5 smoked mackerel fillets with premade spinach & ricotta sauce, livened up with a little sage, chili oil, soy sauce, and garlic, along with some brown rice, and mangetout & baby corn. Happy bunny. Anyone looking for a live-in chef? Californian addresses given preference. ^_^

Doctor Who? Much as everyone's said, really - poor pacing, plenty of wasted opportunities, yet still with some enjoyable highlights. Still, mycroftb noticed this time machine, and I insist it appear in Doctor Who. Police boxes are all very well, but really, who can beat this?

razzlfraz noticed Crotchy, a 12" cotton toy that's somehow very wrong, in a Jim Woodring-gone-bad way. ^_^;

Caught on camera by roohbear outside his office, here's a brief clip of a black-tailed jack rabbit (lepus californicus, which is actually a hare).

Musical discovery of the day was a surreal creation indeed - Peter and the Wolf. Sure, you've heard it before. But this time, from Weird Al and Wendy Carlos. =:D And you might want to check out Schrödinger's Dog - Zone of Fire, "Progressive, semiorganic trance with dark undercurrents, loosely based on/inspired by Galerians."

I want to see these signs in use. ^_^
