A: Mostly I straddle reality and the imagination. My reality needs imagination like a bulb needs a socket. My imagination needs reality like a blind man needs a cane. Math is hard. Reading a map. Following orders. Carpentry. Electronics. Plumbing. Remembering things correctly. Straight lines. Sheet rock. Finding a safety pin. Patience with others. Ordering in Chinese. Stereo instructions in German.

Simon Tofield has a new animation featuring his irresistible cat. My personal cat does the same lap thing while I’m on the computer. Previously at Neatorama: Cat Man Do and Let Me In! Tofield is an animator at Tandem Films, where I found out that Cat Man Do won the prize for Best Comedy at the British Animation Awards. -via Metafilter

…On the way out, everyone received a box lunch and a bright colored bag containing a towel, toothbrush and other useful things. The kids each got a toy and some treats…

Click here to see the video clip!
We are not sure how this was kept secret by everyone involved but it was truly an incredible production. Check out Amy’s utter shock when people start springing up from the crowd to join in the fun in this heartwarming tribute to Amy and Brad on their special day…
I laughed, I cried, I clapped and I watched it twice!

TradeMark G. of The Evolution Control Committee will issue you your own "Artistic License" for $20.
Now when I show up at art openings, I just flash my ID — I’m an artist!
More free wine, please! Even at clubs I present my license as my
identification… because, by gum, I’m an artist, just the kind of artist
who would be fully licensed. Although this is not legal identification
in the government’s eyes, I have presented it on many occasional to
security personnel who want “valid ID”. More times than not, they take
it! So, it must be valid.

is an extension for Firefox that opens up a small window at the bottom
of the browser. In this little window is a mini-blogging tool that
let’s me look at a website while I write about, which is absolutely the
most helpful tool in the world. When I first started blogging I hated
the idea of having to blog through Wordpress, constantly switching
between tabs, or having an entirely separate program to write posts.
I guess this is just a post about how much I
love Scribefire, it’s one of the main reasons I use Firefox over
Safari. And this morning they just released a brand new version (which
Firefox 3 conveniently notified me of) and it’s even better than it was
before. You can search for photos on Flickr and post them right to your
blog and the same thing goes for YouTube, which I’ll definitely be
using. My only beef so far is that I can’t resize the menu bar thingy
to the right anymore, but I’m sure they’ll fix it eventually, it’s
If you happen to have a blog and have never heard of Scribefire I highly suggest checking it out, it’s a life saver.
Snob note: This is my first Scribefire post and i heartily agree!!!

In 1951, George Whitman opened a bookshop-commune in Paris. George, 92, still runs his "den of anarchists disguised as a bookstore," offering free, dirty beds to poor literati, cutting his hair with a candle and gluing the carpet with pancake batter. More than 40,000 poets, travelers and political activists have stayed at Shakespeare and Company, writing or stealing books, throwing parties and making soup or love while living with George's generosity and fits of anger. Illustrious guests include Henry Miller, Anaïs Nin, Jacques Prévert, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, Gregory Corso, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, James Baldwin and Richard Wright. Welcome to the makeshift utopia of the last member of the Beat Generation

A new teacup called Ceramic For Mix (which appears to be made of glass) eliminates the need for a stirring spoon. This is acheived by a ball installed in the bottom. Designer Florian Dussopt says,
“The ball is put into a slightly protruding base to keep it in place when stirring and drinking.
“Users gently move the cup, like you would when swirling a glass of cognac, and the action pushes the ball around.
“The ceramic ball mixes all various sugars and milk at the same time, thus eliminating the need for a spoon.
“When you drink, the ball is blocked by the gravity in the recess of the glass.”
The company, Ana Gram, has made prototypes and is looking for a manufacturer. Link -via Digg
