I'm sure you have all seen this fifteen times now, but let me tell you, the enjoyment doesn't dissipate after the sixteenth. Or seventeenth. Sure it's anthropomorphizing, but hasn't he got a gorgeous smile? Who knew it was possible for a hedgehog to make you more clucky?
This has to be the funniest thing I have seen all week. I know they are supposed to be wildling thrashing their guitars, but that DOES NOT look like what they are doing. And Lego-James' vacant smile and helmet hair. And the stubble. And the moshing crowd. Too funny, I say, Dear Reader.
Oh how I would love to spy something like this on the drive to work. I mean, sure, there would be that first moment of gut-dropping-sphincter-tightening panic that comes with the thought that they are actually, you know, out there and real (a-la 28 days later and 28 weeks later, brilliant movies), but then there would be that hint of mirth, the bubble up of hysterics when instead you imagine the panic of everyone else, (obviously as unsophisticated and worldly as myself) before you that has seen it, flush with images less from George Romero, and more of Shaun of the Dead. Way to try and insight War of the Worlds type panic Computer Geeks! Made me smile, anyhoo.
Which actually gets me to thinking. Are we too damn savvy for monsters now? What if, I'm just saying of course, zombies (or for that matter vampires, things from the black lagoon etc) did suddenly appear, would our cynicism, our incredulity (or supposition that they were part of a hidden camera type set up) be the weapon with which they would be defeated? If a vampire bears it's fangs (in the forrest? follow the analogy) and nobody believes it does it even exist? Hmm. Some pondering is required.
Control is the name of your game. You are a studied tactician and scientist and you seek a kingdom where things make sense, damn the morals, even if you have to create it. You are cold, calm and calculating.
You just knew I would be posting this sucker, didn't you? But isn't she adorable? It is, apparently, from 1905, and may be the first photographic evidence of a crazy cat lady.
On the old photo front, some great excitment readers - my Dad found a bunch of old photos he didn't know he had in his cavernous garage. And oh the joy! Once I get them scanned up I will post one, including one of a great, great uncle repleat with smiling dog! Beautiful.
