What's going on?

Here's some drawings ripped straight from today's headlines.....

Surprise!! Britain's Got Talent! well she's Scottish actually I think and she can sing despite her comely looks. I'm not really sure what the two have to do with each other but Simone is shocked. Susan Boyle
Swine FLU!! it's killing hundreds in Mexico and pandemic is on the lips of every newscaster on tv. They want to report on a pandemic so bad you can taste it. Can you tell this pig is in Mexico? oh well never mind..... PANIC!!

BlackBeards Ghost! it's a bad time to be a pirate these days. Jail time for pirate bay death for Somalian pirates, I think it's time to convene the counsel and release Calypso. It's your only hope PIRATES!!

Toronto

A recent trip to Toronto. Some drawings and photos

A lounging ape
More apes in restful poses.

An ape who was standing on a net at the time.


An orangutan. They are by far the clowns of the zoo. lively, active, almost preforming for the watchers. this one however was tuckered out I guess and was lying down it's head on a pillow and looking quite bored.


some more bored Orang.



African mask. Scary yet with an expression of total ambivalence. Also knitted breasts.


Dinosaurs!


Train station


Lions, the king of the jungle, the lazy lazy jungle

more orangs. not so bored. They were being feed corn on the cob.

OCAD, preliminary designs for this building made me think it would be a terrible eyesore that would blight the skyline, but seeing it now in real life is really spectacular.




This was taken from the new AGO, which is pretty impressive but in the end what remains no matter how fancy? Duct tape.

This is what apparently passes for a "Bay" cafeteria in toronto.

HD Vision

Have you checked out Youtube in HD? It's amazing crisp for streaming video. especially the white house weekly address. It's so clean you can see things you didn't notice in standard definition. just look at the example above, In standard definition you would have never seen Obama's slight frustration mixed with disappointment at my infantile behavior, now that's HD!
