The Christmas exhibition at the Evergreen Cultural Centre is going to be "Saftey Gear for Small Animals" by Bill Burns. It's a really cool idea - he's set himself up as the pseudo-director of a "natural" museum, designed to protect endangered species. He makes teeny, tiny saftey gear for animals:



These are workgloves, designed in small, medium and petite (for anything from a pigeon to a racoon)



It's a tiny safety vest, designed for birds and animals who cross roads at night.

His website is http://www.safetygearmuseum.com I love it. If you go to the "Some Saftey Gear" link, there's more images. My personal favorite are the little green kneepads and the life vest.

Let's continue the train! My five music picks:

1.) Sexy Results: Death From Above
2.) Where Have All The Cowboys Gone: Paula Cole (Where have they gone? And will they come back?)
3.) Get Right: Jennifer Lopez
4.) The Engine Driver: The Decemberists
5.) Garbage: Sex Is Not The Enemy

And perhaps rice_chex, acoustic_babe, scorched_earth _lifted_ and foxxygrandma would care to fill out their five musical selections as well.

Oh, Jessica Walter.


I was flipping channels today, and Dinosaurs was on. Lucille Bluth's voice coming from a large green dinosaur was eeriely unnerving. She was so nice! So kind! So caring! But with Lucille's voice! I had so many mixed television emotions!

But in the end, I realized that I never really liked Dinosaurs to begin with, and changed the channel.

I was reading Picasso at the Lapin Agile by Steve Martin, and really liked this bit:

" Sagot: I know that there are two subjects in paintings that no one will buy. One is Jesus and the other is sheep. Love Him as much as they want, no one really wants a picture of Jesus in the living room. You're having a few people over, having a few drinks, and there's Jesus over the sofa. Somehow it doesn't work. And not in the bedroom either, obviously. I mean you want Jesus watching over you but not while you're in the missionary position. You could put Him in the kitchen maybe, but then that's sort of insulting to Jesus. Jesus, ham sandwich, Jesus, ham sandwich; I wouldn't like it and neither would He. Can't sell a male nude either, unless they're messengers. Why a messenger would want to be nude, I don't know. You'd think they'd at least need a little pouch or something. In fact, if a nude man showed up at my door and I asked, "Who is it?" and he said, "Messenger," I would damn well look and see if he has a pouch, and if he doesn't, I'm not answering the door. Sheep are the same, don't ask me why, can't sell 'em."

I start my new job on Monday.

For the past year, I've worn exactally the same thing to teach mini-sports: the pair of i-can't-wear-jeans-to-acting-class-so-I-had-to-buy-these-pants pants and an SFU or Copacabana T-shirt. Now that I need to wear, you know, decent clothes I'm torn. I like the thought of dressing up, but you know mid-July when the money is tight, I'm going to be going, "Just give me a red shirt. A red shirt that says 'Staff' on it. That's good enough! It gets the point across. Right? Right?"

Bloc Party in a little more than two weeks! Yay!

I am teaching a creative dance class on Thursday.

For girls, ages 3-4.

Now, if by chance, you are bored and find yourself at the Pinetree Community Centre, say 12:30 on Thursday, and walk upstairs to the dance room, you might see a spectacle unlike any other. UNLIKE ANY OTHER. There is dance, there is song, there is a completely sober Jillian. It's going to be interesting.

It also explains why I am currently in possession of 100-Kids-Sing-Along-Favorites (3 CD's) and trying to learn the words to "Shake Your Sillies Out."

This might be the most effective form of birth control out there. Make a group of teenagers sit and listen to an hour of this shit. Reinforce the fact that kids don't want to listen to the music you like, and for the first five years of life, Jimmy Crack Corn will be the only thing coming out of their speakers. He will crack corn. And you won't care.

Maybe I should just put on "groove is in the heart" and teach them the marble arch whistle dance. It is a proven classic.

Hello All.

As some of you know, I am in CMNS 200, a class that does a communication plan for a non-profit organizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

Anyways, we ended up working on Sunday night, and I thought I had taped Arrested Development.

Thought.

My VCR failed me.

I failed my VCR.

Did anybody tape the episode? And if you did, what would it take for me to borrow that tape?
