Look how you’ve made me feel! H.o.p. art, 2007 H.o.p. has been angry with me. Oh, he lets me know in other ways. But this is how he REALLY lets me know. He draws pictures and brandishes them. “Look!

MY ACT?

My act? I’m a super somersaulting frog! The above is some old H.o.p. art. Love it. A frog that lets you know its “act” is somersaulting, then performs a somersault and promptly barfs.

Swedish people, for whatever reason, are very interested in whether or not the rock they found on their last hike could be a meteorite. Don’t believe me? Follow the link. And Washington University in St. Louis is sick of it. They don’t want you contacting them any more and asking if you have a meteorite, especially a lunar meteorite. Don’t …

The post header. That’s what we’ve been up to around here. The Fantasy Worlds of George Pal! I’d been promising H.o.p. for months a viewing of Pal’s “War of the Worlds” via Flickr. Finally we got it.
