2001: A Space Odyssey - Doctor Who mashup

Need to cause trouble for some summer fun:

Here's a quick mashup of the TARDIS on the pod deck of the Discovery.

I don't know which Doctor this would be. It would be interesting to see how the Doctor would handle HAL... and then the Monolith orbiting Jupiter.

Christopher Lee in the Last Unicorn

Almost forgot, Christopher Lee as King Haggard in the Last Unicorn. If someone else had done the voice for this character, King Haggard would have been just another anime' villain. But with other stars such as Mia Farrow and Jeff Bridges (the DUDE!) lending their voices to this movie, Lee helped make Peter S. Beagle's story the rare gem it is. I understand that Mr. Lee was a big fan of the book.

The Last Unicorn came on cable at a time when I was finding out how things don't work out the way we planned. It's painful for me to watch it now. I had to pass it up when it came to Los Angeles this winter.

But here's to the charisma, and the dignity that Christopher Lee brought to all his film roles.

Christopher Lee in the Corpse Bride

Hello, it's still been a hectic spring at work, even with classes being over. Haven't had the energy to put up a post. 'Til now.

Well, we lost Christopher Lee this week at the age of 93. But when you look at his life on and off the screen, I would say his time on earth was pretty remarkable. Mr. Lee was sort of an unsung hero to me as a voice actor in animation, as well Star Wars, and all the horror movies he acted in. Here he is as Pastor Galswells in Tim Burton's the Corpse Bride.

Responsiquences

Just a made up word, but I want to get credit for it here. Responsiquences: "The result of not anticipating the outcome of one's actions."

Carbonmade

Not sure about this site.
I was helping someone try to set up a portfolio page at the lab. I managed to throw a page together with my cute stuff:


I was able to setup a basic account, but my friend kept having problems:
Carbonmade would not let her sign in after setting up an account. The buttons on the site literally stopped working.

Will try to do more on Monday.

Symbicort Grandpa Wolf by ffake Animation

I wondered who did this TV ad. It was ffake Animation up in Portland.


The  animation is nifty, and the characters have a lot of classic appeal, even though the meds they are promoting seem kind of gruesome.
