Art of the Moment
October 7, 2004
Two neat computer art pieces...The Zoomquilt is this lovely recursive painting piece that you can zoom into and out of forever (it loops eventually)--I think each artist made their painting so it fits inside someone elses, and then they linked it with a red path/tongue motif...really cool.
Sillier are these Stop Action Animations by Lebonze...Planes is probably the coolest...it has a goofy, dreamlike quality to it...
Political Video of the Moment
Funny yet creepy video of Buzzword Bonanza from the Republican National Convention. Part of me knows you could do this with almost any set of political speeches, but still...
Quote of the Moment
"Remember when you were a kid and the boys didn't like the girls? Only sissies liked girls? What I'm trying to tell you is that nothing's changed. You think boys grow out of not liking girls, but we don't grow out if it. We just grow horny. That's the problem. We mix up liking pussy for liking girls. Believe me, one couldn't have less to do with the other."
Link of the Moment
Wired webified its article on the SmartCar coming to North America. I love those things. And omigosh, I thought the upcoming MINI convertible was cute, but how wacky is the Convertible SmartCar??? (Though I wonder how much less safe it might be then its safety cage'd cousin?
