I support this cause (of course) but I am also reposting it because it is such a brilliant, thought provoking campaign. Whoever designed this - wow. Great work.

Yay! Cows!

I went to a basic cow-work clinic today with Rowan. He tends to think cows are pretty scary, so I had no idea how it would turn out. My hopeful guess was that he would take his usual approach of shying back for ScaryThing and then immediately approach it again to research its scariness. And I was right, I took a few minutes to let him meet the cows through the fence of the pen, and he thought they were a bit scary but mostly very intriguing.
Once we actually started working under saddle, it took him a few moments to figure out that cows aren't solid objects, they'll move aside if you push. So a 'wall of cow' can be shouldered into without pain. Once that clicked, the lightbulb came on and he took to it really well, following the cow we picked, pressured it in the right ways without much direction from me, and generally displayed uncommon amounts of cow-sense for a horse not bred to work with cows. I suspect that working with the big blue ball has given him a bit of an insight into pushing something to get it to move. (will try to get some photos&vid of that, it's fun to watch) We had a blast.

(I look a bit awkward because I was trying to keep him off the cow a bit, he was getting overly enthusiastic!)

I have just spent an hour watching dogs gleefully hurl themselves into the water. There is actually such a thing as a dock diving competition for dogs. And it looks like so much fun.

And I still wanna dog

The original video, which I expect just about everybody to have seen by now. A couple decided to have a fun entrance to their wedding.

The viral ad:

My first assumption was that a very clever divorce attorney office had commissioned this, but it's actually a marketing/multimedia company showing off their viral skillz. Kinda neat :-)

I was washing and rinsing bottles yesterday and had this rather cool effect... got housemate to take a photo of it. This actually started when the bottle was still all the way full.

I've had this in my youtube favourites but it was taken down there, just found it back - Nathan Fillion has a great sense of timing. And Sean Maher being really cute.

Edit: ah, so I was NOT being crazy when I originally thought I remembered this being Viggo Mortenson and Orlando Bloom.

Look! Look! *points up*

[livejournal.com profile] yady applied her magical tech skills and fixed the design for me. Is now also dynamic width. Yayness.

(I had not seen anything of Twilight and am amazed at the appeal of this character. He talks like me on a bad braining day, only lamer (!) and he sounds like they novocained his tongue.)
This looks like a ton of fun. And fiendishly difficult, but still.

I live in Wageningen, a small city which happens to be the place where the peace was signed that ended WW2. On May 5.
May 4 is national rememberance day. It's quite a solemn occasion. May 5 is liberation day, and the party is on. In town here, May 5 is when nobody bothers trying to get anything done. It's a 'You can't beat 'em, might as well join 'em' sort of day. Cars can't get in. Or out. The busses are stuffed full. And diverted off their routes. There are 6 music podia spread over the (small) city centre. And in the late afternoon there's a march of veterans right through the city centre.
More & photos! )

Ohhh shiny

I love fanfilms. There's just something so cool about what a bunch of really dedicated people can manage on a shoestring budget. Very exciting.

I... have no words. Thank you, Ladylark.
