Okay, tell me these balloons don't look like fun. ^_^

Honda's done it again, this time with their superbly nifty Grr Game, in which you guide a hoppity bunny around.. (distinct negative: its Flash seems to be written to be playable online only = 3MB download. Not so nice for dialup. But very cute!)

This posting in animaloptica caught my eye.. I'll have to see what the full production's like. "My brother's studio just released an hour-long nature documentary about Siberian wildlife, and it's available for free download under a Creative Commons license (including a DVD image). In the film, the crew travels with a group of Russian ornithologists as they cross the West-Siberian Plain from the South to the North. Lots of very nice wildlife shots in the film, plus it's just generally entertaining."

.. John Woo's going to direct a live-action He-Man movie?

Michael Grade, who cancelled Doctor Who in his term as Controller of BBC 1, and later gloated over it as guest on Room 101, now apologises. Fantastic. :) And, following in the Doctor's footsteps, Sapphire & Steel return on CD, now played by Susannah Harker and (yay!) David Warner. (Anyone fancy explaining S&S to those unfamiliar with the series? :)

Cool little drawing at The Digital Bits at the moment - a copy of the RotS soundtrack, signed by John Williams. (And three regular copies for other winners) It's just a "send us an email" thing, no brain required; probably best to use a disposable email address with them.

Another Flash version from the series: Ultimate Flash Sonic (1471k), which lets you play as all the usual characters, plus Cream the Rabbit.

I'm with Pig, needless to say. (And I've always been a fan of Ratbert)

On sale now, for a September release: The Complete New Yorker. Coming on eight DVDs, the set holds every page of every issue, for $100.

Not the same short I posted mention of some time ago, but Deere John is a lovely, brief ballet excerpt with a difference. ^_^

All you could ever hope (or fear) knowing about the Doctor Who theme's creation and evolution.

Zettai Shounen continues its relaxed pace through episode three. I'm enjoying this quite a bit; the theme continues to be gently mysterious, rather than any sudden departure.

Non-sequitur of the day must belong here: "My local bike shop is now half bike half WIG STORE O_o it apparently went from the 4 extreme sports guys to little old asian family Bike & Wigs XD" Bikes and wigs, together at last! YES!

Did anyone make it through all of Texhnolyze? I was initially following the fansub releases, on the strength of its pedigree (Haibane Renmei and Serial Experiments Lain not being exactly bad series), but wound up wandering away around episode six.

Oooh, I'll have to try that someday. Maybe on someone who's never heard of Chris Cunningham.. but I'm not sure I could be so evil. ^_^

I first came across Come to Daddy a few years back, at a mini festival of digital music video at the Palace of Fine Arts. I was.. ah.. surprised. :) A year or so later, an obscure ITV series, Mirrorball, featured him in one of their shows, and I pieced together CtD from the fragments they showed. (Not that bad - they only cut the intro in a few times, with the bulk untouched. I just snipped appropriately)

And then finally.. that DVD.

(Are you sure it included that last one? It's quite recent)

Oh, *yes!* Saw that one a little while back. Brilliant stuff. ^_^ I love it when creators of fun music videos choose to make the short available online, in decent downloadable (not streaming!) form - it's fun to watch them while heading back on the train some night, or while enjoying a good pint at the local arts cinema. Or any other time! There's so much creativity put into those few minutes, yet so often, once they're gone from the minimal MTV rotation, that's it.

(Well, MTV2, anyway. Does music appear on MTV now? Sky's selection seems better, with Kerrang for the metalheads, and a few other more specialist music channels, plus the radio stations. And TV execs wonder why people are wandering away?)
