Via Boing Boing, this is Eddie Adcock, ace banjo player, undergoing brain surgery to correct a tremor in his right hand. He's conscious, and playing the banjo during the surgery to determine the best place to put the stimulators. That's rock 'n' roll, muthafuckas!

And now for something completely different, a cat playing a theremin. (via Boing Boing, via Laughing Squid)






Also from Boing Boing, a review of Sony's Vaio TZ Premium subnotebook. Some highlights, but the whole thing is definitely worth reading.

"If the crapware removal is like getting cold feet at the altar, however, other flaws emerge, like misdemeanor convictions and minor venereal diseases uncovered over the course of a honeymoon. . . .

Windows Vista, the fat electron-guzzling turd that it is, is mildly inappropriate for a svelte ultraportable, but that isn't Sony's fault. Downgrade it, and imagine the world-conquering wonder this thing would be with OSX."


And finally, if you haven't heard of Expelled, it's a purported documentary on the travails of the brave souls who are fighting the entrenched forces of Fundamentalist Darwinism so that schoolchlidren everywhere can hear the Good News about Intelligent Design. Oh yeah, and Ben Stein (yeah, that guy) explains how Darwin led to the Holocaust. Um, yeah, right. This piece of meretricious (or merdetricious, for our Canadian readers) pile of tripe was screened at the Missouri Statehouse last week for the Governor and various legislators. The Kansas City Star's report is here. It's supposed to open Friday nationwide, but there is a little problem concerning copyright infringement that might delay that. Click the link above for lots of fun information.

The clouds stayed away, and Rohanna, Dragonet and I braved the 13° weather to watch the dragon eat the Moon. Just beautiful. My mother may be in Hawai'i, but she didn't get to see that!*

He'd be 199 today. Without a doubt, the most influential scientist ofthe 19th century, and that's saying something.

So go out and evolve, damnit! It'll piss Mike "I'm not a primate" Huckabee off, so it has to be good.

Via Boing Boing, The Periodic Table Printmaking Project. Clicking on the individual elements (oooh, unintended pun!) gives details on the artist and their methodlogy. An excellent learning tool.

Quote of the day:

"If you want to take a look at one of the sources of creationist thought, the workshop where the red-hot anvil of pseudoscience and the inflexible hammer of theology are used to forge the balloon animals of creationism, The Journal of Creation (formerly the Creation ex nihilo Technical Journal) is now online … or at least part of it is."

Pharyngula. He's smart, extremely opinionated and fixated on cephalopods.
