Pour les enfants que nous étions pendant les années 70.


"Pinkie Pou" était une séquence intercallaire en prise de vue réelle mais animée en pixillation (stop motion) dans l'émission "L'ile aux enfants". D'autres exemples de cette technique d'animation sont "Lardux" et "Tom Thumb". Le monsieur qui interprétait le magicien "Pinkie Pou" nous a malheureusement quitté en Novembre 2008. Il a été interviewé en 2005 par Casimirland.com, à voir ici

Vegetal beings- Stimulus package
Sunday. 3.22.09 4:58 pm











Axel N.
Erlandson (1884-1964)
“You would think that as the trees grow, the formation would change. But they don’t. This chair will remain about the same height. The legs, arms and back will get larger in circumference but the shape will remain about the same.


No other figure today or in known history went so far in demonstrating the potential that trees have to offer to the art of arborsculpture. With only a fourth grade education and a strong will to teach himself, Axel Erlandson’s work “set the bar” for all aspiring arborsculptors.

for your viewing pleasure~~~~ONE TRILLION DOLLERS!!!!

All this talk about "stimulus packages" and "bailouts"...

A billion dollars...

A hundred billion dollars...

Eight hundred billion dollars...

One TRILLION dollars...

What does that look like? I mean, these various numbers are tossed around like so many doggie treats, so I thought I'd take Google Sketchup out for a test drive and try to get a sense of what exactly a trillion dollars looks like.


We'll start with a $100 dollar bill. Currently the largest U.S. denomination in general circulation. Most everyone has seen them, slighty fewer have owned them. Guaranteed to make friends wherever they go.












A packet of one hundred $100 bills is less than 1/2" thick and contains $10,000. Fits in your pocket easily and is more than enough for week or two of shamefully decadent fun.













Believe it or not, this next little pile is $1 million dollars (100 packets of $10,000). You could stuff that into a grocery bag and walk around with it.












While a measly $1 million looked a little unimpressive, $100 million is a little more respectable. It fits neatly on a standard pallet...

$100,000,000 (one hundred million dollars)









And $1 BILLION dollars... now we're really getting somewhere...











Next we'll look at ONE TRILLION dollars. This is that number we've been hearing about so much. What is a trillion dollars? Well, it's a million million. It's a thousand billion. It's a one followed by 12 zeros.



You ready for this?

It's pretty surprising.


Go ahead...

Ladies and gentlemen... I "give" you $1 trillion dollars...











(And notice those pallets are double stacked.
)

So the next time you hear someone toss around the phrase "trillion dollars"... that's what they're talking about.

Prime foto dell'Alice di Tim Burton!







http://www.badtaste.it/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=7064&Itemid=91

First photos of Tim Burton's Alice

As promised, the scans of the Disney magazine in which the first images of Tim Buton's Alice in Wonderland have arrived: here is Alice and some concept images!

Yesterday we told you about the new Disney tri-annual magazine, D23, and the fact that on there are the very first official images of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland.


Today we show you the scans of these images, obviously inviting you to procure the magazine yourself (even if it is hard to come by in the USA, we imagine).


It deals with two conceptual designs and in the first photo is Mia Wasikowska in the role of Alice. The conceptual designs show a few moments in the film: tea with the Mad Hatter (note also the presence of the Cheshire Cat), performed in the film by Johnny Depp, and the scene where Alice shrinks, in the beginning of the book.


Adapted by Linda Woolverton (The Lion King) from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There (the two famous novels by Lewis Carroll) for Walt Disney Pictures, the film's two lead performers are Mia Wasikowska in the role of Alice and Johnny Depp in the role of the Mad Hatter.


... The film will be released March 5, 2010 (scheduled for US release on this date as well via IMDB).

Les réseaux sociaux en ligne: une brève analyse
Tuesday. 3.17.09 12:51 pm
Les réseaux sociaux en ligne ont redéfini le mot "ami" avec une nuance de plus. On peut désormais avoir comme "amis" des gens qu'on ne connait ni d'Eve ni d'Adam et qui n'ont pas nécessairement fait quoi que ce soit pour le mériter. Et vice versa.
Il serait plus précis de définir ces gens comme des "contacts" ou des "connaissances", au moins initialement, même si certains parmi ces personnes peuvent effectivement être des amis en devenir, sans pour autant perdre de vue que les amis se méritent. Il faut donc prendre le temps de découvrir quelqu'un, de lui parler, d'échanger, le tout dans un respect mutuel. Les utilisateurs de ces sites, en particulier les plus jeunes, définissent leurs "amis" sur MySpace ou Facebook de la même manière qu'ils définissent ceux, en chair et en os, qu'ils fréquentent dans la vie réelle mais sans le temps et l'effort normalement requis pour gagner et garder leur amitié: rendus présomptueux par des rapports en ligne rapides, faciles et superficiels, ces gens et la société en général vont au devant de gros problèmes...

Geronimo's Skull
Saturday. 3.14.09 3:17 pm
Geronimo’s Heirs Sue Secret Yale Society Over His Skull
By JAMES C. McKINLEY Jr.

HOUSTON — The descendants of Geronimo have sued Skull and Bones, a secret society at Yale University with ties to the Bush family, charging that its members robbed his grave in 1918 and have kept his skull in a glass case ever since.



The claim is part of a lawsuit filed in federal court in Washington on Tuesday, the 100th anniversary of Geronimo’s death. The Apache warrior’s heirs are seeking to recover all his remains, wherever they may be, and have them transferred to a new grave at the headwaters of the Gila River in New Mexico, where Geronimo was born and wished to be interred.

“I believe strongly from my heart that his spirit was never released,” Geronimo’s great-grandson Harlyn Geronimo, 61, told reporters Tuesday at the National Press Club.

Geronimo died a prisoner of war at Fort Sill, Okla., in 1909. A longstanding tradition among members of Skull and Bones holds that Prescott S. Bush — father of President George Bush and grandfather of President George W. Bush — broke into the grave with some classmates during World War I and made off with the skull, two bones, a bridle and some stirrups, all of which were put on display at the group’s clubhouse in New Haven, known as the Tomb.

The story gained some validity in 2005, when a historian discovered a letter written in 1918 from one Skull and Bones member to another saying the skull had been taken from a grave at Fort Sill along with several pieces of tack for a horse.

Ramsey Clark, a former United States attorney general who is representing Geronimo’s family, acknowledged he had no hard proof that the story was true. Yet he said he hoped the court would clear up the matter.

Tom Conroy, a spokesman for Yale, declined to comment on the lawsuit but was quick to note that the Tomb was not on university property.

Members of the Skull and Bones, who guard their organization’s secrecy, could not be reached for comment. Though the society is not officially affiliated with the university, many of Yale’s most powerful alumni are members, among them both Bush presidents and Senator John Kerry , Democrat of Massachusetts.

“Of all the items rumored to be in the Skull and Bones’s possession, Geronimo’s skull is one of the more plausible ones,” said Alexandra Robbins, the author of “Secrets of the Tomb” (Little Brown 2002), a book about the society. “There is a skull encased in a glass display when you walk in the door of the Tomb, and they call it Geronimo.

Some local historians and anthropologists in Oklahoma have cast doubt on the tale, noting that no independent evidence has been found to suggest that Geronimo’s grave was disturbed in 1918. Ten years later, the army covered the grave with concrete and replaced a simple wooden headstone with a stone monument, making it nearly impregnable.

Geronimo, whose given name was Goyathlay, put up fierce resistance to white settlers, fighting the Mexican and United States armies for nearly three decades. He finally surrendered, with only 35 men left, to Gen. Nelson A. Miles on the New Mexico-Arizona border in 1886 and spent the rest of his life in prison, dying of pneumonia.

Not all Apaches want to move his remains to New Mexico. The branch of the tribe that settled at Fort Sill after Geronimo died is fighting to keep the grave where it is.

“There is nothing to be gained by digging up the dead,” said Jeff Houser, the chairman of the Fort Sill Apache Tribe. “It will not repair the damage to the tribe caused by its removal and imprisonment.

Cuba's Response to Peak Oil
Tuesday. 3.10.09 4:00 pm
Just to prepare ourselves to some harsh realities when oil runs out and learn from the Cuban experience... Following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the embargo imposed by the United States, Cuba saw its oil supplies stop abruptly. Food production rested heavily on oil: faced with the possibility of starvation, low energy ways of producing food had to be implemented: it not only improved the health of soil and environment but also of the inhabitants of the island.
