"I had a dream. In fact, it was on the night I met you. In the dream, there was our world, and the world was dark because there weren't any robins and the robins represented love. And for the longest time, there was this darkness. And all of a sudden, thousands of robins were set free and they flew down and brought this blinding light of love. And it seemed that love would make any difference, and it did. So, I guess it means that there is trouble until the robins come."

~ Sandy Williams (Laura Dern) in David Lynch's Blue Velvet.

Very cool

One of the neatest things I've seen on the internet lately. It's a photo that's made up of smaller photos, which are made up of even smaller photos, and so on... you can keep zooming in forever. Click here.

How to Operate Disneyland Rides

Here are the operation manuals for Pirates of the Caribbean and The Haunted Mansion. They're from 1975-76.

How to Build a Car

This video shows the process of building a BMW E90. I've always been slightly scared by those giant robotic arms that precisely construct these cars. We're very close to a "Minority Report" future in which the entire production is done without humans.

When this game comes out, I think it'll be time to buy a new computer.

Yakko's World

Keeping with our "Animaniacs" theme, here's Yakko singing the nations of the world. It's a bit out of date, but cool nevertheless.
And you gotta love the little dance he does in between verses.

Yakko's Universe

In an attempt to procrastinate writing this film theory essay, I searched YouTube for a TV song I remember from my childhood, and what do you know, here it is...

Original Star Wars Trilogy on DVD!

From Ain't It Cool News:

"In response to overwhelming demand, Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will release attractively priced individual two-disc releases of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi. Each release includes the 2004 digitally remastered version of the movie, as well as the original theatrical edition of the film. That means you'll be able to enjoy Star Wars as it first appeared in 1977, Empire in 1980, and Jedi in 1983.

See the title crawl to Star Wars before it was known as Episode IV; see the pioneering, if dated, motion control model work on the attack on the Death Star; groove to Lapti Nek or the Ewok Celebration song like you did when you were a kid; and yes, see Han Solo shoot first.

This release will only be available for a limited time: from September 12th to December 31st."

... I'm so happy I didn't buy the DVDs when they were released two years ago.
