biting off more than you can chew

So, I haven't updated in a very long time, and yet my blog-reader hits have surpassed 1500! Good gravy!

And so, because you have all been so very patient, you get a drink FROM MR. FIRE HOSE! I've been saving up all the things I've wanted to post here, and now they're here, ALL IN ONE GO. Fasten your seatbelts, it's gonna be a bumpy night.

Coolest paper cups ever.

When it come to encapsulating retro burlesque wacky childlike Americana, I try, but the Ditty Bops

Aside from the fact they don't include my name, this musical version of Stockholm, Sweden is still awesome.

Guy Maddin: The Heart of the World -- nice 'n' retro.

the most beautifully illustrated 'safetydance' ever

The dance of airplane safety, beautifully drawn

The best jobsite ever

O'Reilly, betta watch yo ass

I love it because I do. Another nice reference to safetydancing!

The Decemberists - 16 Military Wives (Is it just me, or did Wes Anderson direct this?)

Gorgeous, gorgeous artwork

Claymation Beatles! Is there any other kind?!

The most brilliant video in the history of videos. Ever. Period.

And then, of course, there's her other side (directed by the director of "Sean of the Dead").

Chime Bells (Rosalie Allie) - nice 'n' kitschy!

Russian ice tunnel - horrifying! Reminds me of Los Angeles (ah, home).

Alice Wang - Peer Pressure. All sorts of arty!

Reggie Watts: Out of Control (by Jakob Lodwick) - one of the coolest things I've seen in a while. Watts is outrageously talented.

Depeche Mode: "John the Revelator" -- Just because it had 'tude, word.

TRON vs. Depeche Mode -- AT LAST.

Western Union's "92 Code" & Wood's "Telegraphic Numerals" because codes are awesome.

Order your own, custom-made astrolabe!

Ray Fenwick is a design god.

"Proper Hoodidge" by Amon Tobin -- I can't stop listening to this. If I were an assassin, this would most likely be my theme music. You have been warned.

This woman is brilliant. Try "Peephole" and "Morning Meest."

Whew. I feel cleansed now.
