not pr0n!

Anyone want to geek out about not pr0n with me? I've gotten to level 10.
Robots is a decent movie, cute and v. predictable, message clear as day: you're quite special just the way you are, etc. Rather disturbing relationship between the main villain and his mother, but enough shenanigans by Robin Williams' character to distract me. I particularly liked the Rube Goldberg element; there's a domino theme throughout the movie, and I really loved the transport machine that took five minutes and myriad dizzying changes of direction to deliver two reeling robots to their destination.

After hearing me burble about Rube Goldberg, K was kind enough to send this link:

Go to http://www.thebravery.com/
-- Click on Music
-- Click on the Video link next to "An Honest Mistake"
-- Then it should pop up.

Click. Really. It's worth it.

In other news, I've been going to NASA's Eyes on the Sky lectures over at Goddard. Today's was essentially a Hubble slide show but the first few were much more technical; they've been catching me up with current theories, cosmic strings and dark energy and the like. (Apparently we've learned a lot more about the universe in the last ten years; my high school education is unsettlingly out of date.) The scientists are peering into the stuff that forms our universe, working backwards to root causes. Cosmologists are a strange breed; they think nothing of saying things like "our galaxy was probably formed out of a quantum fluctuation during the Big Bang. Lucky accident for us, eh?"

They seem so cheerful at the thought. Me, I have to fight off the existential dread.
Keyed up, perhaps due to ill-advised mochalatte after dinner. Middle of the night, even the cat is asleep, and I'm wide awake. Normally I would be reading, but St Augustine's Confessions isn't quite soothing enough at the moment. Instead, I shall post poetry.

...what, except for "sends" and "abreast" they're all livejournals? Even the little tiny words like "is" and "in"? Geez, people have to be more inventive with their usernames.
