Some fun links, and a notice for kids in Indianapolis.

Yeah, yeah, I know. You come here for the funny haha's and bent wire stuff. I've got a good idea for a piece, but it's more of a "yeah, this must mean something profound" instead of a "I wish I had a poster of this for my dorm room" kind of thing I'm afraid. Sorry! But I don't feel like being up til one a.m. making it and posting it though, so this other stuff will have to do.

First some great links (if I do say so myself).

#1. Tilt shift photography meets stop motion film making - A short, well worth watching video about it.

#2. An artist who I just found out about, but he's been doing great things since the early nineties. I'm just out of the loop, I guess. His name? David Shrigley. His photos, his sculptures, and his animations.

#3. A portrait blog of people's portraits. Color portraits of fashionable hairstyles just don't age well. Send your 20 year old portrait in for people to comment on. Go ahead, I dare you.

For those of you who live in Indianapolis or it's suburbs (I know there are a few of you out there, although I think I have more visitors from the Singapore than within my own metropolitan area), I'm going to the Indianapolis Public Library to hear Tyler Green give a talk Thursday evening (Nov. 13, 08). Information about what he's speaking on is here.

Also, if you're still reading this- I'll be speaking to, and working with children at the big beautiful library November 29th at 2 p.m. If you're interested, you may want to register your child (9-18 years old) ahead of time. Info is here! Space is limited.

If you do live in the Indy area and haven't visited the new downtown Public Library, then let me tell you, you're really missing a beautiful place. It's a wonderful piece of architecture that our tax dollars built that ordinary people like us can actually enter for free! (unlike a certain gigantic football stadium that I can't afford tickets to set foot in).
