Mr. Picassohead

I love simple but elegant and fun sites like this. If only Picasso had access to computers and the internet during his prime, I wonder what he might have produced? Then there is a long list of great artists who could have benefited.

This was quite a simple image to produce and took less than 60 seconds. I just worked through the options available from top to bottom. As the eye was first, it seemed obvious that it should only be half on the face. I did the same with the mouth. The other items, such as eyelashes and hair did not want to fit in with the image without distracting from the simplicity. I would have loved a few decent eye-lashes.

Warped buildings in Praha

Originally uploaded by 天曉得。.
And I thought only Barcelona was advanced enough to build buildings like this. It is called the Dancing House. But I love it. The small thumbnail looked like there had been a disaster. But no, they build them that way.

A new approach here, this was added from Flickr, where I have some of my own images. But this time I was browsing the general library.

Why is it so?

Well I was thinking that there would be no post today, but decided that I needed to ask Dr Karl a question. Along the road, I found some old archival footage of Professor Julius Sumner Miller, who is perhaps one of the guilty parties in my interest for science. Typically, the shows on the site based not on what great science they provide, but based on how funny they are. I suppose that that accurately describes the old prof.

My favorite is
The Dunking Duck. And as a bonus, no static electricity to be seen anywhere.

Internet Archive: Details: Crazy 04 Summer

Well I was browsing the internet archive to see if I should upload my holiday videos, which I decided to do. I picked a few random samples which were not professional movies, as this is the catgeory my movies fall into. The second movie I selected was this little gemstone. The first half is particularly good.
