Ceci n'est pas une personne.

I was flipping through radio stations the otherday, and KINk was playing AhHa's "Take Me On". I loved that video. The mix of animation and live action was excellently done. But in all reality, the song was not that good. But because of the video and people fond memories of it, we will be forced to listen to it for decades to come without the benefit of the graphics, as it's old enough no place plays the videos, other than when MTV/VH1 does some sort of retrospective.

Video didn't kill the radio stars, it just made the wrong people radio stars.

Wow! I've got a nice cut across the top of my head. Saturday I was helping divamatrix get a couch from an old roomie and managed to bang my head on a 2x4. I must have bled a lot more than I thought given the 3" long scab. This is one of those moments I'm glad I have such a hard head.

A couple sail boat pictures where I tried for a specific look. It didn't come out as well as I hoped (not including the images being dark, that cna be fixed)...

I was noticing the gap between the mast and the jib or spinnaker and using that to frame a second boat. Sort of a naval version of Matryoshka dolls. It did not come out looking as dramatic of eye catching as hoped. Maybe cropping in more, are waiting for a windier day when the boats a keeled over. But you can look below and get the idea.

It seemed dramatic and nifty idea at the time.

Now if only I had this during the Cock Contest. I would've beat crashtestcase like a redheaded step child! :-P
