Art is not eternal

Midway through this, I thought, “Hey, I could hire these guys to make me a Flintstone house for way cheaper than $3.2 million*,” but then I watched the rest of the film. Oh well.

Foreign trade

Happy Canada Day, everyone. Have some mellow, jazz-accompanied fireworks.

Don’t forget to count Floyd

So yes, last weekend I tried goat yoga – the newest fitness craze that is sweeping the nation.

I’d definitely recommend it, though it was more of a mental health care thing than a physical one. It’s hard not to laugh when a baby goat is on your back adjusting your pose, and all that laughing really does release a ton of pressure and stress. Quite amazing, really.

The goats were more interested in eating shoelaces than trying to count all of us like the little goat in this cartoon, but if they had tried to count us I know we wouldn’t have gotten mad like the other animals in the story. Who gets mad when somebody counts them?

These guys need a little mental health care. I know just the thing that will fix them right up.

Coming of age

Benny and I went to a “coming of age” themed party last night, and for a while we were the only people dressed in costume besides an awesome roller disco-dressed pal. So I’m not sure how grown up we are. I guess I could make the argument that being grown up is dressing up for a costume party and not worrying whether other people are going to dress up. What I do know is that being grown up is a lot more than being organized, because if that were the case, I would have been grown up a long time ago.

This week’s animation gets extra points for the part where it seems like Grandmother Cat is getting a prank call from a cow. She’s not, but it sure seems like it at first.

It’s a hardrock life

I know I’ve featured these guys some Christmas past, but I feel like I really need some Hardrock, Coco and Joe this year. How about you?

Soothing the savage beast

Yes, it’s a bible story, but it features sporks.

Outwit the fiend with your superior intelligence

It’s been reported that a woman is walking her white poodle around a town in Wisconsin while dressed as Bumble the Snowmonster this Christmas season. She has remarked that her goal is to bring joy and happiness, and apparently she’s succeeding with the humans she’s encountering.

Coincidentally, I walked a dog yesterday and we encountered Bumble’s California cousin. It did not go so well. Here’s the last five seconds of a two-minute showdown:

I guess it didn’t help that I was dressed as Yukon Cornelius.

Sunday slump

Everyone seems to be talking about the latest development in liquid food substitutes, but nobody’s said anything about how it works against night starvation. Maybe I’ll just stick with Horlick’s.

Where the queen gets her kicks

Did I already post this video? I feel like I have, but why would I have posted it before? Today is Fancy Notions’ sixth birthday; it didn’t happen before now.

Well, in case I already posted that, here’s another one. Sort of weird to post something featuring strawberry shortcake on Pi Day, but maybe that’s why he falls down at the end. Oh wait, he always does that.

Fragonerd

During my junior year of college, I spent a lot of time collecting mirrors and chandelier crystals and painting things pink and gold. I’m not sure why I’m telling you this.
