Have you seen this yet? It’s a music video for an Arcade Fire song that seriously pushes the boundaries of the internet as an artistic medium. You may need the Google Chrome browser to view it. If you don’t have Chrome, use this as an excuse to download a great browser. Then enjoy the show.
Arcade Fire has been involved in some other inventive video creations. I like the Neon Bible one.
One of my life goals is to take a long bike trip, and something like this might just come in handy. A mini camper that you pull with your bike! Fun! (Via swissmiss.)
Here’s a wonderful quotation by Henry Beston that I’ve come across a few times while doing my elephant research:
“For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not our brethren, they are not our underlings; they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the Earth.”

Had an old friend in town for the weekend. Lots of good conversation.
Bouquet by saipua. Just got back from a very beautiful wedding that had very beautiful flowers that were all sustainably and semi-locally grown.
