No Commentary Necessary — Docter’s “Next Door”

Next Door

Just in case I “buried the link” a bit too deeply in yesterday’s Pixar post, I wanted to make sure everyone saw this. It’s called Next Door, and it’s a student film from Pete Docter. You know, Pete “The Guy Who Directed Up” Docter? Which makes perfect sense once you see this. (Especially when you compare [Read More...]

Free Association on a Friday Afternoon

NeverStopped2

This afternoon, I find myself with an inexplicable hankering for “Touch of Grey.” So, here. Because Internet. Which, of course, makes me think of Spider Man. Obvious, right? …or perhaps not so obvious. My mind can be a bit labyrinthine at times, even to me. So I had to tease it out a bit. J. K. [Read More...]

Things Learned Between WY and CA (and Relearned Between CA and WY)

RestArea

Thing One: That’s a radiator cap. Everyone (or every car) should have one. For a brief moment on that fantastic 80MPH stretch between Salt Lake City and St. George, we did not have one. Or at least we did not have one attached to our radiator in quite the way one might wish. As a [Read More...]

Cyan’s Back!

CyanIncLogo

I don’t have a lot of  teenage memories. In fact, as I’ve surely remarked/lamented before, I don’t have a lot of memories from any stage in my life. But of the few I do have, some of the fondest are the laughter-filled hours my siblings and I spent gathered around the computer playing adventure games. [Read More...]

Orson’s Shylock

Gilbert-Shylock

A few weeks ago, I accidentally stumbled across the following clips. I don’t remember what I was searching for at the time — definitely not “Orson Welles’ Shylock Monologues,” since I didn’t even realize they existed prior to my unknowing-yet-grateful stumblings — but their presence on YouTube reminds me of why I love the Internet [Read More...]

From the Depths to the Heights in Mere Seconds

shutterstock_247101949

Last night was nerve-wracking. Crawford was surprisingly spectacular, and Kershaw was solid. The defense was neither. Freddy Garcia was crafty (as I feared he would be). The Braves were scrappy (as I knew they would be). After six, all we knew for sure was that it was as if none of those innings had even happened. We [Read More...]

“Mother, look! What’s all this?”

Covered James II

We have no use for melodramatic Starkian warnings here in Wyoming. Winter isn’t “coming;” it is, or it is not. Yesterday evening, I walked home across a chilly, rainy, snowless landscape. This morning, this: I’ll bet the Public Works folks are less than thrilled, but the boys sure do love it. Well,  most of the boys [Read More...]

Advice For All Papal Watchers: Chew Before Swallowing

NathanStick

Nathan, our youngest, has reached that hilarious transitional stage where he adjusting from receiving his sustenance almost exclusively through breast-feeding to actually eating solid foods. (And by “solid,” I mean “mostly mashed bananas and rice cereal mixed with yogurt,” of course.) He’s both extraordinarily adept — I guess that goes with the early walking — [Read More...]

Tintin, Brought to Life by His Creator

Hergé_signature[1]

View image | gettyimages.com The Susanka Seven are huge Tintin fans. Well, I guess I can’t speak of Nathan’s fandom definitively. Not yet, anyway. But the older 85% are passionately committed. Even The Sixth, Cormac, reads Hergé with regularity. Many’s the time I’ve found him sitting calmly in the basement, leafing through one of the wonderful “Adventures of Tintin” [Read More...]
