I just think the guys at yugop.com are clever and everyone should visit their site, and I hope this isn't completely blowing their bandwidth!

Dr Seuss - unorthodox taxidermy

With his oversized beak and disheveled hair, the Andoluvian Grackler abounds with Seussian personality. For years Geisel’s father, a zoo superintendent, sent Ted beaks, horns and antlers from deceased animals at the Springfield Massachusetts Forest Park Zoo. In the 1930s, Ted created sculptures based on what he thought these animals would want to be reincarnated as. He called this his “Collection of Unorthodox Taxidermy.”

Domino Artwork

Domino Artwork: The mob at DominoArtwork.com are truly obsessed with making pictures out of dominoes! They start with a target image, and a certain number of complete sets of double nine dominoes.
They say that what makes this difficult is that they use *complete* sets of dominoes. If they decide to work with 48 complete sets, for example,then they must use precisely 48 blank dominoes, precisely 48 dominoes that are blank on one side and have one dot on the other, precisely 48 dominoes that are blank on one side and have two dots on the other,
and so on.
And I thought those mosaic thingy posters that clever people build out of individual photographs were a bit of a challenge!
OK I know there's software to do all this, but.....

Now NO FAT CHICKS in your pictures!

Probably one of the most disturbing things I've seen in ages. Now I know we live in a visual age, and I know we rely on what we see, and I know we don't believe anything we see... so what is it that will make people buy this camera because they'll believe what it it produces???
When they bring out a camera that gives me a big chest and muscly biceps, I'll be the first in line for it!
Or am I just completely out of step with the world?
There again, I suppose I couldn't see the Emperor's new clothes either.
It's not April is it?



Arrrrr...today be talk like a pirate day, which is pretty sad for the blokes that invented it, because their website seems to have imploded. I guess their valiant attempts to be pirates, didn't extend to thieving enough bandwidth to see the day out!
It's a curious thing to talk as one imagines a Pirate would talk, in a sort of rolling East Coast American rendition of a sort of Irish who-knows-what.
In the 17th century, I suspect there'd be little of the American twang, nor much English as we know it (particularly from the Spanish, Portugese and French Pirates)
Who cares? There is absolutely nothing that has a greater point to make than something as pointless as this!

Another cool Flickr tool, which seems to be a solution looking for a problem, but I've had my play.
I suppose I could have used this for the other pages in this site and and saved.. ohhh three minutes work in Freeway!
The pic is me being Matt, but with a camera that doesn't like to play in the dark!

Banksy, my favourite graffiti artist and one time quasi-revolutionary seems to have finally really put the BANK into his name with his recent exhibition in LA.
Typical of him was his rendition of pooh, which is street vandal mates would have though a bit autobiographical perhaps, along with his rendition of a queue of people lining up to buy "smash capitalism" tee shirts.
Perhaps Mr Banks is at a crossroad, as he flogs his stuff at $100k per time, or perhaps he really is doing it for world peace,


For the benefit of those who do stumble across this page!

Now that the balance of the page has a simpler format, and with the exception of the text here and the yucky snot coloured background is quite readable, it occurred to me that people would actually try to get to this page, and so I figured there's no point in working too hard to improve it or they'll come back!
Currently we have:
Our boatlinks pages up
Our piclinks pages up
Our links pages up (but they sort of only link to us anyway
and we can be contacted.
Now I can sort out a few other things, like adding news to here!


We have headers, and no content!

I suppose if one is to claim that one has had a blog for five years, then one should also own up to the fact that one hasn't really done too much thinking about it either. I find it fascinating to find that the "title" bar was switched off, as indeed were the "links" bits. Now there's a Sunday I could have spent doing other things!
We're almost on top of this formatting stuff....almost. I probably wouldn't have been bothered as I thought this was my secret little corner of the web, where I could play with jazzy rollovers and kindergarten stuff, but I forgot to keep the spiders out, then discovered that people actually visited those desperately unfinished pages!

So now I've taken down all the pages that promised stuff, and only link to stuff that's actually done. Subscribe to this feed if you are completely desperate to discover the quilt pages if I get round to them!
