Random Tuesday Thoughts - They Live!

Click on my current fave font to read full report. Special thanks to Mike over at The Mental Kavity for bringing this breaking news to our attention.

Also in the news: Tamp IKEA opens the 6th (YAY!) Ok, that's not really the news, THIS IS ! People have already lined up outside the store - buh? C'mon - I like cheap fun design as much as the next guy but this I just don't get. If you have 3 minutes to spare, check out the interview. Why? Hmm. I dunno. It just seems like the RTT thing to do.


Geeked out big time tonight. Started with Doing DaVinci. No, it's not renaissance porn. A group of guys build working machines based on Leonardo's drawings. The bickering & one upsmanship on the show is stupid but the devices are very very cool.

Caught this DaVinci exhibition in Rome last summer (twice). Highly recommend it, especially if you are traveling with kids. My (then) 4 year old was fascinated by the models (some are hands on) and has been obsessed with inventions & Rube Goldberg devices ever since.

If you have even more time to kill today, check out some Rube Goldberg devices on Youtube & see what crazy fun stuff is there. I am amazed by the amount of time people have on their hands (says the woman watching 12,000 dominoes fall)

Once I had the remote to myself tonight, I settled in with some Tivo'd Cartoon Nerdwork - I warned you! Sat. nights they've been rerunning some classics so I let 'em stack up & then save for the insomnia nights. Caught Episodes #25 of both Full Metal Alchemist (Words of Farewell) & Death Note (Silence), two of my favorites. Then the finale of Cowboy Bebop (a series with the best opening theme ever, by the way)...sigh... geek-girl heaven.

If you've stuck with me this far, pass the popcorn ;D If you don't know what the hell I'm talking about, go enjoy your life & I promise to chatter about art & stuff again soon. And if you just gotta have some more of that sweet yet crunchy chaos, pop on over to The Un Mom today. Oh, and be sure to warn Keely about the quarantine....

The Un Mom


  1. AWESOME font! I must have it.

    I'm glad to hear the Doing Davinci was good. I recorded it last week and haven't had a chance to watch yet. The machines they were showing on the previews looked wicked!

  2. Keely put the SAME LINK on her RTT today! That is so funny!!

    I'm totally jealous about your visit to Rome. I think you were very brave to go with a 4 year old!

  3. Loving random Tuesday!!! I have my popcorn and I am ready to go!

  4. Hey Stacey! Thanks for the shout out. Clearly I didn't have the energy nor the time to do kickin' Random Tuesday post so I appreciate the friendly nudge in my direction.

    Really glad you liked the gag and found the humour in it too!

    Okay, I'm off to get myself started on some drawing for tonight.

  5. I love that font. I'm totally glad I found that link with a disclaimer already attached, though, because I would have FREAKED OUT.
