I downloaded Bad Taste. Peter Jackson's directorial skills have improved a great deal over 13 years...Bad Taste is like something I'd have made with friends in Junior high. The movie is downright gross and goofy. (The Frighteners was a lot better.) I'm even more impressed that they gave this guy LotR at all, and how good a job was done with it. (Rachel showed me Meet the Feebles ages ago, too. That was something different.)

The Edo Era (1603-1867), during which a full-fledged feudal system was established by the Tokugawa shogunate, was also an era in which the culture of townspeople flourished. That Japan had already developed distinctive advertising techniques of its own as early as the Edo Era might come as a surprise to you. But ample evidence of these remain for us today to follow a historical trail, in the form of nishiki-e (a multicolored woodblock print), hikifuda (handbills) and signboards. A witness of the times, as well as a chronicle of advertising creative work in Japan, these relics represent a valuable record of both the evolution of corporations and the history of common people's lives.
Belgium's most famous reporter TinTin is 75 years old. Congratulations and happy birthday to Snowy too. The intrepid reporter first appeared in print on January 10, 1929, in a comic supplement to the Brussels newspaper Le Vingtieme Siecle.

I like how the clouds give a sense of perspective... I forget that they're so huge sometimes, because they're so far up. I have the same feeling about the Moon and Sun... I know in my brain that they're gigantic, but my caveman heart tells me that they're not very big at all.

Ok, phones are switched over.. It's time to go out and enjoy some fresh, cool air. Until later, dear journal.
