The Very picture of paraskavedekatriaphilia

Otis and I just finished watching a couple episodes of Avatar: The Last Airbender. I've gone on a little bit about how much fun this animated series is; here's a little animation that shows some martial arts action - an airbender (the kid) versus an earthbender (the old guy):

Fun stuff, but the action is only secondary to the story arc that connects all the episodes and the best use of continuity outside comics. Check it out.

Here are some more images that have been floating around on the ol' desktop:

A great shot of a zeppelin over the pyramids:

Captain Easy in a kilt? Sarong? A skirt of some sort, anyway.

Here's another kilt picture, but I have no idea what is going on:

The Sci-Fi Channel has some new ads that feature old tropes from a different perspective:

This is for my own personal mad scientist, Dr. Burn:

And finally, a photo from RL: Otis's Yip-ification of our bedroom:

That's all for tonight!

The zeppelin over the pyramid makes me happy for reasons I'm having trouble figuring out. I just like it a lot and I'm not sure why.

On an unrelated note...could you send me a quick message at my gmail address? There's something I very much want to send you, and I don't have a current e-mail address for you (or if you have one posted, I can't find it). Thanks in advance...

Lovely Yip-ification. Vern Yip? Today's word verification: waisms.

"Most mad scientists are just mad engineers."

Of course! That explains the surliness of coders.

That cartoon reminds me of one of my favorite Charles Addams cartoons: Two men inside the patent office; one, hat in hand, and the other looking back at "hat-man" in annoyance, while pointing a large sci-fi rifle out the window, saying "Death-ray, my eye! It doesn't even slow them up!"

Juliet: Yes, Vern Yip! I have a big crush on him (don't tell Walter)! :-)
