Just watched an episode of Samurai Jack (haven’t seen it in years). It was one of the best things to come out of Cartoon Network. Heck, I would say it’s one of the best animated shows period. It had all sorts of great little lessons about the Hero’s Journey.

When I have kids, it’s going on the list of things they have to experience. And I’ll be right there watching it with them.

Dan Akroyd and the Crystal Heads on Flickr.

Then there was the time I was in the same breathing space as Dan Akroyd. I have yet to open my signed bottle of Crystal Skull Vodka. If I remember correctly, I have one as a Christmas gift to Amanda’s dad that year.

(I’m in a nostalgic mood tonight, hence the blitzkrieg of posts.)

Autumn Sunrise, Baslow. by Johnnic1 on Flickr.

With so many pictures tending toward over-saturation, it’s really nice to see people playing with other color tones.

The early Bird… by www.blendenfabrik.de on Flickr.

I love the Explore tab on Flickr. The amazing photos I see from other photographers is inspiring.

End of war by bestarns [www.spiritofdecay.com] on Flickr.

This reminds me SO MUCH of a scene (several scenes, really) of LOST.

I miss that show. Might be time for a rewatch.

These Are Real Minerals Created By The Earth

No, they’re not props for the next live-action Zelda movie; these are legitimate minerals created by the chemical and physical action of 4 billion years of Earth generally being a badass.

Physics, chemistry, and geology ARE pretty badass.

Science!
