“It’s not a matter of resources, it’s a matter of priorities. Imagine the United States engaged not in the War on Terror or the War on Drugs, but in a War on Climate Change, with architects proudly serving on the front line.”

Starting to do editing and sound work on the film we took — I’d forgotten how much I enjoy it!
“They’re like fluffy puppies! Except their birds, and they can’t fly…”
Joyful holiday, with friends, plenty of new people to meet, lazy long day, conversations, activities, and more. Great day!
Made something new last night — a cassoulet/ratatouille sorta thing with ground lamb. Our verdict: pretty darn good!
Just back from going out with a gaggle of people to see Skyfall all dressed up in our finery and dapper clothes. Lent a certain air to the outing that was perfect for the film and fun to boot!
Could it be a year where the Disney film would turn out to be superior than the Pixar film? After seeing Brave, and being enticed by a promising Wreck it Ralph trailer, it looked like that might just happen.

I just discovered that TV Ontario has made a whack of Prisoners of Gravity episodes available on their video archive page… add that to the ones posted on YouTube and there’s hours of great viewing to be (re)had! w00t!
(If you’ve never seen Prisoners of Gravity, you’re in for a treat — it was an early ’90s show on speculative fiction and comics, put together by none other than Frantics alumni Rick Green. Great stuff with cool explorations with many authors, artists, and more. Go watch!)
