i’ve been reading the internets again

I am feeling prolific and linky today. Maybe it’s a Friday thing, or reduced game responsibilities, or the fact that I’ve had almost no office work to do all week.

City of Vancouver votes to allow urban chickens! Get this motion passed by my cats and we might be on to something. Really, though, raising chickens in the extra bathroom isn’t very practical. It would be much more sensible to build giant plexiglas tubes around the whole apartment and have them wander about like hamsters. (Side note: the author of this how-to on removing a hamster from a tube should chat with this half-baked theorist on pneumatic hamster tubes).

Helicopter shots of Venice. Absolutely stunning, and almost enough to make me think about going back to Italy. “Hey, here’s an idea: we’ve got 118 islands, why not build a city all over them?!”

So I mentioned Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but I just discovered the competing film, Pride and Predator. Clearly the one with walking undead will be superior. Elizabeth is a smart and proper lady, it’s not like she’d lower her standards to courting alien bounty hunters. Please. It does makes you wonder how the film world happens upon this synchronicity…

Guerrila Camoflage for IKEA. The next war will not be fought on the battlefield, or even on computers. It will be on huge concrete fields of sensibly priced Swedish furniture.

Oh, and finally, I have to give a shoutout to David Lynch’s Twitter. Sometimes he shares a thought or two, but mostly he just posts the daily weather in Los Angeles in perfectly structured English. It is very odd and it pleases me to no end.

    I was at a dinner party in Richmond, Virginia, last night. A friend of mine was sayng that she wished she had some chickens. I asked her if chickens were allowed in Richmond, and she said no. I was going to tell her about Vancouverr and chickens, but she had already seen the story! Apparently there is a websitte on urban livestock, and she keeps up with this issue. Who knew!

    You are clearly advertising, Mr. Streetwear, and yet I love the sound of “how can you have chicken in your house?!”, so your comment may live.
