sepdet: Mars Curiosity Rover's head (Curiosity)
Houston, we do NOT have a problem with this... 

It's really too bad that NASA only recently acquired some social media savvy employees to do their PR. I suspect that we'd have had a lot more public awareness of past NASA missions, particularly the wonders of the shuttle program, if they'd been doing things like this and MarsCuriosity's "GALE CRATER, I AM IN YOU!" Twitter channel all along.

Some web flotsam to soothe the soul.

Well, soothing unless you are allergic to bagpipes. (Sorry, akycha.) 

Unsurprisingly, I am a YouTube stalker of the Unipiper.

... a comment from [ profile] ursulav's most recent blog post that I wish to remember.

UrsulaV is the artist who does fantasy art with aggressive fruit.

And she got a Cease and Desist order for her "Hello Chthulu" postcards a few years back.

I try not to post holiday stuff because I know some people on my flist get sick of it. (My family celebrates an amalgam secular holiday; the Jewish side of the family was very big on decorations, tree, Santa and presents.)

However. This must be shared.

Tokyo Gojira Christmas Tree is AWESOME.

... I didn't think that there could ever be a worse website than the infamous Glaucoma, Glaucoma site of the mid 2000s (back when bandwidth was much more of an issue):

... but has just turned up something even more terrifying.

I present you with a webpage that truly epitomizes the phrase "Jesus freaks."

WARNING: FLASHING STROBE EFFECT. Possibly migraine-inducing even if you don't get migraines.

So. Are you braced? Are you sitting down? Are you wearing sunglasses? Behold the horror.

I'm partial to the heavenly chorus of Jedi angels cooking popcorn with their lightsabres.

ETA: I dared to run the javascript. It should be virus-free, as does malware checks; it simply plays a goofy 90s MIDI music file to accompany the graphics.

ETA2: On closer inspection, the animated gif representing the Supreme Being is suffering from Nearly Headless Nick sydrome.

...uncovers another oddity:

Rap of the Nibelung

The musician's website exhibits a refreshingly unusual fusion of hip hop posturing and geekitude.

I've never had any particular desire to see Wagner's Ring as an adult, thanks to the fact that it was massively exploited for racist propaganda purposes. (I'm not sure if that's entirely fair to the content; mythology is not necessarily to blame for its exploitation).

However, I seem to remember making fun of Wagner's Ring with [ profile] alexdecampi when we were in 6th grade. We were set off by a minimalist TV version, from which I can vaguely recall the Siegfriend School of Extreme Overacting and a scene in which Odin communes with the Earth-goddess Urda, represented by someone rolling about in a burlap sack and gesticulating.

(I hope no one's worried about the sheep... I used to watch sheep dog trials a lot when I was little at the Fair Hill Scottish Games, and the sheep seem very, well, sheeplike, about it.)
