I read this book years ago and now it is being made into a movie. Surprisingly, the new adaptation that Gould wrote specifically for the movie is pretty good. The trailer looks awesome.

Brewing Discord

Recently The OverDrone tuned into Craft in America on PBS. Richard Notkin was featured in a section on Ceramics. Notkin makes the argument that what is considered craft can also speak to issues . The piece in the picture above is actually a teapot.
I had seen Notkin's work in stills before but seeing them turning in space on the screen brought a new understanding of his work to me. Many of his teapots appear to be unglazed but on further examination are polished or burnished to create different finishes.

Kinder und UberKinder

Nerds With Kids makes an excellent point about The Incredibles in this post pasted from a message board. Here at The OverDrone I wrestled with the same issues on viewing the movie with my then six year old daughter.

Chip-Chewa-Chip-Chip, Wiki, Wiki, Wiki Ch'ka Woo (to be said out loud)

Oh, man, look at the woofers on that chair. I bet sitting on that seriously lowers your sperm count. Here it is folks, before the 808, before Grandmaster Flash, there was the musical chair. I only wish they had a reclining model. Nowadays mixers stand at their consoles and twiddle their thumbs, but it was a gentler age back then, why, Funky Drummer hadn't even been conceived yet.

Santa you Fat Bastard

Another short post today as I have been playing catch up these last few days. Apologies to anyone who noticed the interruption of services. I'm not even going to post a picture today so you will just have to click on the link to see what I'm slavering over.
Oh, man this thing looks so sweet, if Santa brings me one I am going to draw all over the internet. I've been relatively good this year but the bastard has let me down before. Yeah, I'm talking to you Santa. Remember when I wanted Castle Grayskull and you brought me that cardboard Police Helicopter instead, well now is the time to make it up to me, I've got cookies, please Santa. Please?
