Just a quickie for now, for the reason below. ^_^

I'm very pleased to announce that, at long last, the first red panda and rabbit clips are finally available. ^_^ The four red panda clips are simply illustrative, whilst the latter clip is a little montage of footage of a small group of wild rabbits I happened upon, appropriately enough, at the San Diego Wild Animal Park. I'm afraid there's a lot of shakiness in the latter, as I was on a fairly high zoom at the time - but, it's still highly enjoyable to see lapines running free. (Literally!) I hope I'll be able to say the same of red pandas in the next few years..

Feel free to link away, if you like - I don't have a button graphic at the moment, lacking l337 P-5h0p 5|<1llz, but I'll try to come up with one eventually. The site layout's very, very simple, and its coding may cause either nausea or bouts of nostalgia in huskyteer.. but it hopefully does the job without causing bleeding eyeballs.

It appears the Supreme Court recently ruled that federal judges aren't required to follow mandatory sentencing "guidelines".

I know I've mentioned it before, but it's really quite a nifty body of work: the Powerpuff Girls, manga style, a few years later on. (So, Dexter and Samurai Jack don't appear in the original.. so what? ^_^) Quite professional in appearance, fully colored, and around 100 pages complete so far. Worth a look, even if just for a glimpse at a more realistic appearance of the characters. There's also a brief Flash trailer (638K) available, which doesn't seem to fall into canon, but it's worth watching regardless of relevance. (The artwork style reminds me of Pilot's, for what it's worth)

"Canada minister in pizza scandal" - the sort of headline you just don't see too often. The actual story summary was regrettably quite un-salacious: "Canada's immigration minister resigns, denying allegations she offered help an immigrant avoid deportation in exchange for pizza and garlic bread." But, terribly Canadian. ^_^
 
 
 
 
 
 
Awww! Thanks so much for linking to those snimal clips-- I was naturally most partial to the rabbit one, which was tremendously cute. =:D
Oh, no problem! I'm really pleased to finally be able to share them. As you might have guessed, I love spending time at good zoos, recording what I can. The rabbits that day were quite a surprise - how could I not try capturing what I could? ^_^ Those kinds of opportunities just don't come up often.. (and when they do, well - there was one time the previous housemate and I were wandering through one of the local woods, and in just that one trip, happened upon small deer and a fox. It also happened to be one of those rare occasions when I'd taken my contacts out.. :-P I still saw them, but more in a Jedi-like detection of their presence, than a Buddhist conjunction with their souls :)

Locally, I'm surprised how little wildlife there appears to be - birds, of course, but I don't think I've seen anything on the ground, aside from cows, and quite a few horses. Then again, a lot of the soil around probably isn't amenable to lapine habitation - much of it's gravelly, or even solid, being a former coal mining region.

Wouldn't night vision goggles be fun to play with? ^_^

I wonder where else in the world bamboo grows wild? I was just idly musing the idea of release programs for red pandas.. after all, even in the wild, while young bamboo's often the snack of choice, other goodies like berries and eggs are perfectly enjoyable as well. Ah, to have a few million to play with, and be able to set up a few square miles of suitable forestland for red panda enjoyment. (And I should imagine red panda and rabbits could get on well enough, for that matter)

Yay! I'm rambling! ^_^
