The Man From Earth

Caitlin and I went to the bookstore a few days ago and I picked up a book called “Discarded Science” on the discount rack for a couple dollars. Subtitled “ideas that seemed good at the time”, I’ve read it over the last couple days cover to cover and greatly enjoyed it. In the same general realm, I watched a great movie this weekend called “The Man From Earth“, a sci-fi story that’s basically a full-movie-length conversation about/with a Cro-Magnon man who still hasn’t died after 14,000 years. The producer of the movie seems to be supportive of p2p distribution of the movie, so if you click the thumbnail you can download a torrent of it. Definitely recommended.

When we get our new studio space — it’s looking like April 1st — I want to start doing some sculptural works (let me know if you see a free kiln or other interesting gear locally on Craigslist), as well as working on a new car, so I enjoyed reading this interview with Chris Ryniak about his sculptures. In more online reading, I liked these musings about converting oil rigs into hotels, possibly self-sufficient ones. Hello, Waterworld!

    The two kilns I have I picked up at about 1/2 price at the local glass shop’s semi-annual “garage” and “dent and scratch” sales. The little kiln looked like it’d never been used and worked perfectly. The larger one had never been used, but the control box on the front had been hit by something and dented, and it didn’t work. It took me about 20 minutes to fix it. You’ve probably got something in Toronto that does similar sales.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
