The Real McCain

Politicians have always double-talked and it's a lot easier now to catch them in the act, cobble together a video and show all their self-contradictions - Jon Stewart does it every night, and with certain other candidates as well. But seriously, this guy would not be able to do the job and may be even more dim-witted and unethical than W.

I Want to Believe

The only better news than a new X Files movie coming out in July is that Billy Connolly is in it, and he plays, get this, a psychic ex-priest! "It's heeaahh Ah knoooww dat it iz..." A welcome relief from all the German and British accents from the series. Let's hope he's not a chain smoker, although with that wild Einstein hair he more than a little resembles the late Cancer Man, minutes before he was blown up by an IED somewhere in New Mexico. (Even TYPING that line feels unreal.)

You can watch the official trailer by clicking on the post title, but it's pretty lame.

Does anyone know if the Lone Gunmen are in it - they are not listed on IMDB but there is a very short list of characters... Or Ratboy... now, that would be great news as well. Perhaps a lovers triangle - a Tri-shipper, as it were.

There are tons of fake movie trailers on You Tube - several are posted on the right. Most of them are infinitely better than the real trailer. It's amazing that fans wanted a new film so badly they signed petitions and presented them to Chris Carter, and spent time making fake trailers. Time that could have easily been spent watching the series' DVDs over and over and ...

New pods

Needs some refinement, am working on a new mosaics thing - pods. Greg S inspired these with his tiny pods made of Fimo. I hope to do different sizes, for weird things in one's garden.

They are styrofoam block, carved, then covered with weather-proof mesh and mortar, then a special polymer blend concrete. This one is topped with glass and tile shards.

Next one, smaller, thinner, green.
