A biologists love tribute to his mom.

So unutterably cool.

These are cool.

Shorecrest HS challenged their cross town rivals (Shorewood HS) to make a better video with their respective AV clubs.

Both are lip synchs. Both are done in a single take.

Here's Shorecrest's:




Cool, huh?

Here's Shorewood's response:



Older music, but dude - it's BACKWARDS.

Apparently one of the kids in the AV club filmed his classmates singing the song forward, watched the video, then taught them how to sing it phonetically backwards so that the lip synching looks forward.

Apparently Shorecrest is working on a new video to top this.

DUDE. Kudos to the kids for the work. Kudos to the teachers for encouraging their kids to work hard & cooperatively to get this kind of work and using the rivalry as this kind of incentive.

I'm such a geek - I think this is brilliant stuff.

And Rachel Maddow continues to rock my little world for being a geek herself and showing me stuff that makes me smile.

I was at the One of a Kind yesterday - one of the things I was keeping an eye out for was a good messenger bag.

My criteria? Something that suited me, something that was going to be durable (cause I'm rough on things), and something that was big enough for what I needed.

Gods, but I thought that would be leather.

Mariclaro is what wound up striking me the right way. (Apparently they've recently got their own site at mariclaro.ca)

Really cool bags. 99% recycled (remainder is their logo & thread, apparently).

This really pleases me. It does what I need it to do. It's likely damned durable (gee - car uphostery & seat belts are pretty rugged). It's funky. And it keeps crap out of landfills.

Yah, that'll do, rabbit, that'll do.

Malcom Reynolds is a piker.

1) For the statement - hells yah, Starbuck was the first space cowboy.
2) And then it goes downhill - who the hell decided that Starbuck should be a WOMAN??
3) Someone else who uses "piker" - and I was beginning to think I was all alone in that...

but I'm not following the physics well (never was good at it)

Can someone who does give me the "you're too dumb to understand this" version???

I think this is squarely in the purview of y'all are too stupid to live - two guys scale many fences to bother a male Siberian Tiger at 1am. One of the men may lose an arm over the incident.
