what I did today (and yesterday)

Painting away. . .I had more flowers on her and more leaves but it was teetering dangerously close to ukulele territory. Not that I have a problem with ukulele territory.

Bots to the rescue!

I freaked out at the grocery store when I saw these bottles. The characters are adorable and every flavor ends in "bot"-lemonbot, grapebot ect. I stared at them and made frantic hand gestures indicating my intense desire to buy them. We picked up berrybot and grapebot. I have yet to taste the actual water inside of the bottles, but I hope it's good since everything else about this company seems so charming. That's right, I said it. Charming.

Fons Schiedon is my hero

Trash-a-long. MTV Asia ident from Fons Schiedon on Vimeo.

Dutch artist and all around very impressive person Fons Schiedon was one of my favorite presenters from the 2008 Pictoplasma conference in NYC. His work is so good it hurts my brain. He can paint, he can draw, he can animate. He wore a white suit at the conference. My favorite piece he showed was an ident for MTV Asia that was a love song to both Karaoke and Kylie Minogue*, but this one is a close second. Go to his new site and be amazed.

*and if you know where to find said karaoke kylie ident and pass it on I, no, the world will be forever grateful.

My New Favorite Book

I found this language book from the 50's on the free table at work. Despite its groovy illustrations and promise to make ". . .learning seem more like amusement than hard work. . .", I don't feel like I'm learning any Italian. This is probably because I'm not really trying to learn Italian, I'm just trying to look busy on public transportation.

The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T

I happened to catch this gem the other night-The 5,000 Fingers of Dr. T. The sets are bizarre and beautiful which makes sense since it was co-written and directed by Dr. Seuss. If you were less than impressed with the most recent movie adaptations of Seuss' work, Dr. T will cure what ails ya. Har har. Watch a clip here.
