Like every 6 months, it was time to visit my favorite pet rescue again. Les Petits Vieux rescues older unwanted pets...mostly cats and dogs but they also have some goats and poneys . You can see my post from last year here.
I had 4 assistants while having lunch :)
Yes, you may rub my belly
This one is Cassis, I carried him around in my arms for a (long) while. He reminds me so much of my Pikachu. Well, if Pikachu had not been scaredy cat...
This is Cassis ' s brother (I don't remember his name)
My new agenda from Hema. They always have the best agendas...and super cheap too! And this one is all colorful inside, with stickes and little pockets to put stuff, little drawings of cameras, birds,plances, feathers. Love.
A scary cool candle in the shpae of the infamous Toht from Raiders of the Lost Ark. Availabe on Firebox. If you've seen the movie, well, no explantion needed...if you haven't, time to watch the film ;-)
And finally the trailer for the next Jurassic Park movie. I must say it looks fairly cool. OK, I might be a little bit excited about this one... Even though, well, who would go ahead with a plan for a dinosaur park knowing how well that went so far...And yeah, let's make a genetically enhanced even more dangerous dinosaur, because , you know all the others were so , huh, lame? Oh, yeah, and let's have that gigantic aquatic monster like 10 meters away from the audience, because, what could go wrong, really? And are they actually having velociraptor races? O.o
The Nasa has recently made available a series of space sounds they recorded on their missions. How very cool...I especially like the sound of Saturn, it sounds like straight out of Forbidden Planet (which had an extra cool soundtrack).
And talking of cool SF from the 50's here's a painting by Chesley Bonestell. You may not be familiar with the name but you have undoubtedly seen some of his art before. He is pretty much the guy who gave us the vision we have of outer space to this day! He was also one of Hollywood greatest "matte painters". Here's a small bio.
