The second part of Lots of Robots is out. Or, you may prefer to download the entire movie so far - fourteen minutes of exquisitely detailed, highly imaginative CG, designed and scored by one person. It's fairly amazing. 112MB, and worth every byte.

ysengrin pointed out these plush facehugger and chestburster Aliens. They're so cute! ^_^;

So, I finally got around to peeking at the video for Tally Hall's "Banana Man". It's well worth the bandwidth. ^_^ And, there's a decent D&B/breakbeat track in Shanti Root's "Heat of Madness" video.

And if you still want more animation, try Little Dog Turpie (28.8MB), a five minute short in the style of a woodcut illustration.

Mmm. That pizza worked out well. :-9 Just a marked down thing from the local supermarket, a Peking duck pizza. Of course, I couldn't just pop it into the oven without augmentation - so, first some crushed Sichuan pepper, a little hot smoked paprika, and rosemary. Then, as it was, predictably, pretty light on the meat front, some thinly sliced turkey and two chopped bacon medallions. That didn't feel complete, so, I went with three sliced shiitake, a sliced tomato, a little shrimp sauce[1], a dash of garlic salt, and a sprinking of fine black pepper. Oh, yes. That was a good combination.

[1] Ingredients: shrimp, salt. Thai cooking, yay!

A few Flash games: Bubble Bobble, Galaga, and "the CCL game", positioning fans and conveyors to move your goods through the warehouse.

patch_bunny might be interested in the occasional World O' Crap movie reviews, this week looking at Humanoids from the Deep: "The Okies catch a Humanoid From the Deep in their net, and in a rapid series of rib-tickling misadventures, Cap’n Hoke accidentally feeds his plump and tender son to the Humanoid, sets the deck on fire with a flaregun, blows up the boat, and incinerates his entire crew. This may help to explain why we don’t see more jug-sippin’, Appalachian hicks trawling for albacore in their bib overalls. If God had intended for hillbillies to deep-sea fish, he would have made them less flammable. And more buoyant."

And yes, it stars Doug McClure - your guarantee of quality!
That's the one! ^_^; I don't think I'd actually heard of the story prior to seeing the short, so it was all quite new to me. It does make for a measure of cognitive dissonance when you realise "ah, his legs are over there now". But he bears it all with remarkably good grace.

If you've any troubles with downloading it (do the systems there have CD-R drives or similar?), I could always toss it onto a DVD-R and fling it enthusiastically in your general direction.
