rigelkitty might want to see this Flash animation starring one Buzzed Bunny.. ^_^
A very cool interview between Chris Wedge, director of Robots, and Steven Lisberger, director of Tron. ("At the screening, when Robin Williams learned that Chris worked on Tron, Robin immediately went into one of his maniac comical states and dropped to his knees in praise and then started quoting lines from the film.") It's really a conversation between friends rather than an interview, and all the more rewarding for that.

Last year's Appleseed feature comes to R1 DVD on May 10th, in three versions, at $20, $30, and $50; the latter is recommended for those who want to have a hefty cyborg of their own to love.
So, I'm finally back on Bunny, following its extended airing - and thankfully, nothing seems to be awry. As capable a system as Dormouse is, it's nice to be "home", as it were.. and to know Bunny's survived its latest tribulation. (I think that spill was a little less of a heart-stopping moment than one time it fell out of my bag.. four feet onto ceramic tiled flooring, with a suitably dramatic slap. Ay yi yi yi..)

An excerpt (13MB, 13mins) from BBC 2's Newsnight current affairs show, illustrating the style of Jeremy Paxman quite well. It begins with an introduction to the subject matter, which obviously places the interview following in context - if you're only interested in the exchanges, feel free to skip across that. It's an enjoyable illustration of the style of British political discourse.. more fun than it might sound. ^_^
Track for the day has to be this (4.3MB) curiosity from Soul Flower Mononoke Summit. I'm at a loss as to how to classify it, but it's a wonderfully peppy little creature, as if straight from Little Israel in the heart of Tokyo.
And I think this icon says it all:
