Bunny with plug

.. and battery

Industrial Revolution, by krinndnz, is a useful story. And then there's also sockscatt's Consequences, revisiting the world of Bandit & Skids.

If you're a Mac user, and photographically inclined, the current MacUpdate bundle includes LightZone 3.6 Basic, normally $129 by itself, for $50 - and that's with several other apps as well, including MacJournal, Contactizer Pro, Bookends, and Mellel. Usually, the serials provided will be limited in some way, either for that version of the app only, or limited updates - but still quite a sharp reduction; in this case, the usual separate prices total $621. Only good for Monday and Tuesday.

relee noticed an eight page comic, Bear Creek Apartments. I shan't say more about the story, but it's not a random link. ^_^

It would appear Curio Obscura make some quite interesting items, including a portable door generator, and an inflatable woman avatar. ("Why dress up in latex clothing when you can BE rubber?")

Egad. Apparently, Columbia's asked for a script for Ghostbusters 3, starring the original cast.

Closer to the present, however, is another that could be quite amusing: Religulous, starring Bill Maher, from the director of Borat.. ^_^ And then there's Mr Deity..

.. though the peculiarity of anything there pales against this story patch_bunny noticed in the Fresno Bee: "A burglar who broke into a home just east of Fresno rubbed spices over the body of one of two men as they slept in their rooms and then used an 8-inch sausage to whack the other man on the face and head before running out of the house, Fresno County sheriff's deputies said Saturday."

Well, that was a minor surprise.. this being a fairly dull[1] little town, the sight of being served by a New Romantic in the local Threshers was entirely welcome. Very cute. ^_^ [1] But, that does mean the neighborhood's wonderfully quiet, with people public spirited enough to leave bowls of water by the sidewalk, for passing dogs to enjoy. And the next door neighbor's always taking my bin out to the kerb on collection day, keeping track of which one(s), as garbage alternates with lawn waste and recyclables.

Mmm, I do like Hybrid's recent Soundsystem 01 - essentially remixes by them of others' work, but none the worse for that.. nice to have some different input.

Despite being one of Murdoch's organs, the Times does still retain a nicely dry sense of humor, as demonstrated by this headline: "Large Hadron Collider will not turn world to goo, promise scientists". (For a highly informative, yet readable, look at what the LHC might be able to confirm, wander over to this Cosmic Variance entry)

Quite nifty: a series of Roland drum machines, brought to the iPhone, in IR-909.
