Where The Wild Things Are Trailer

March 28, 2009

I’ve been a skeptic of this project since I first heard about it.  I mean, there really isn’t much story in the original book, so what’s been added to stretch it into a movie?  But the trailer does make it look pretty good.

Papercraft Friday #34: VF-1S Valkyrie

March 27, 2009

v03

v02

This week’s model brings back fond memories of watching anime on Saturday mornings at Pantera’s Pizza in the mid-80’s.  It’s the VF-1S Valkyrie from Super Dimensional Fortress Macross (Japan) and Robotech (USA).  The model, from the SF Paper Craft Gallery, comes in two build modes: Fighter mode and Gerwalk mode.  3 model pages each, so not terribly complicated, but nicely detailed.  Good times.

This is your chance to go to Mars!

Head over to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Mars Science Laboratory site to have your name included with others on a microchip on the Mars Science Laboratory rover heading to Mars in 2011!  Don’t worry, the Martians won’t have your street address.

Also on their site, you can vote among the 9 finalists to the final name of the new rover.

Gooey Butter Cake

March 14, 2009

gooeyYou won’t find me posting much about cooking, because I’m better at eating than at cooking.  And baking…. forget it.  I’ll leave that to Jenny.  But if you’re looking for something delicious, I came across this recipe for Gooey Butter Cake.  Any self-respecting St. Louisan will know exactly what that is, but if you’re not from the area, now you can bake one up yourself.  Enjoy (immensely)!
