Bunny wiggle

Rabbit for rent

Well, this is one dinner nobody's walking away from without paying..

A sly reply to the eternal query of how many record execs does it take to screw in a lightbulb.

Bunny O' Jam: Luck of the Hareish, SF, March 22, 8pm-4am. ^_^ Bit late notice, true, but I'm afraid I've been seconded for duty bashing away at keyboards in exchange for rabbit food. As such, I've unfortunately had no time to read anything on LJ (or, indeed, FA, save for a highly welcome care package sent by mycroftb =:) since about Tuesday last week, the 11th. I do, however, bring joyous news, courtesy of someone less normal than I (just in different ways), who thankfully happens to be the guy introducing me to the weird and wonderful ways of USB, raw flash access, and animatronic deer; namely, the culinary revelation that is a Jaffa cake with peanut butter slathered on top. Yes, I'm serious. Or about as much as I ever am. ^_^

If anyone reading this goes along to the Bunnyjam this year, I'd really enjoy seeing any video footage you might be able to take - stills are one thing, but for an event like that, you really need to see and hear the motion and the beat. Bit surprising there's no LondonFurs equivalent, but then, is there much of a guerrilla art scene there, or indeed, in Sydney? So much of plunderphonics seems to orbit San Francisco exclusively. What gives?

Now this does look like fun.. iPhone LEGO. =:D Follow the link for an excellent YouTube trailer, 45s long.

Dusan Writer's holding another competition, this time with a tribal/cargo cult theme. Entries to be submitted by Mar 29, with prizes of L$60k, L$25k, L$15k, and 22 more of L$1k.

Also via DW, a cornucopia of visualisation tech. rabitguy especially might find this brain-tickling.

It's sort of odd, almost, seeing a large corporation actually appearing to understand how they can play an active part in a virtual world like SL, rather than the rather more common "build it and they will come" expectations - but, Orange Island seems to be quite active, and in decidedly un-stuffy ways.

The shoulder dragon mentioned over here ("He sits on your shoulder, looks around, blinks, smiles, pulls out oranges and tosses them in the air and catches them in his mouth to eat, he leans over to nuzzle your neck and occasionally jumps off your shoulder to fly around you.") made me wonder what a pocket version of Scabrous would get up to. =:)

Via worthyadvisor, news of a great day for Pastafarians everywhere: the installation of the FSM at the Cumberland County Courthouse lawn, in Crossville, Tennessee.
