happy sushi thoughts

this makes me happy..

reminds me of dancing, content, slightly fat people who like who they are 🙂 (my new year’s resolution is to be as ambiguous as possible for a year).

And penguins, don’t forget penguins
or roosters.

aaaah sushi!

Amazing TinTin-ery.
Reminded me so much of my childhood days tucked away with a TinTin in my hands.
Two years ago, a friend of mine surprised me by taking me to a cafe in Manhattan dedicated to Tin Tin and Tin Tin art.
The cafe is Petite Abeille Restaurant — 466 Hudson St. (about 3 blocks south of Christopher St.).
Was mighty cool of her.

BTW, the rocket first appeared on “destination moon“.
Update: Apparently there was a play put on by the Young Vic production group.

color illusion

Amazing demonstration of our perception of color (or the lack thereof)..

found at : http://www.patmedia.net/marklevinson/cool/cool_illusion.html

If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating pink dot, you will only see one color, pink. If you stare at the black + in the center, the moving dot turns to green. Now, concentrate on the black + in the center of the picture. After a short period of time, all the pink dots will slowly disappear, and you will only see a green dot rotating if you’re lucky! It’s amazing how our brain works. There really is no green dot, and the pink ones really don’t disappear. This should be proof enough, we don’t always see what we think we see.

Teaching disenfranchisement

Ah, the misguided things that the CIA did (or still does.)

More of the guide is available at flickr.

In the early 1980s, the right-wing reagan u.s. government was determined to undermine or overthrow the leftist government of nicaragua.

as part of this campaign, the central intelligence agency produced a small illustrated booklet in both spanish and english designed to destabilise the nicaraguan government and economic system.

It instructed dissaffected individuals on acts of sabotage they could carry out to this end.

aeon flux revisited

For those of you who have no idea who or what aeon flux is, Mike Russell has a page about the history of aeon flux and how it came to be.

You might actually enjoy the boston globe version of the comic.

Definitely get the original animation dvds and watch them. They’ll be worth your time, I swear. Watch the animations before you watch the charlize theron movie if you can. Then judge the movie.
