Disappearing childhood...

[001] As most of the flist is probably aware now, Michael Crichton died. Jurassic Park was one of the first movies I saw in the cinema. I remember burrowing into my seat and trying not to pay attention to T-Rex roaring.

I read the Lost World et all in middle school and the Andromeda Strain and Airframe in highschool. Congo and The Sphere were all movies of my youth.

I thought about it at random points during the day. While most peeps yacked about Stephen King, my guy was always Michael Crichton. Through his works, he probably influenced me more than some relatives of mine. And now he's gone. My brain still can't quite accept it.

[002] Walking down memory lane, apart from Julie Dillon (jdillon), another old favorite artist is Jo Chen.

Examples of super shiny art: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5. The most amazing thing is that she is now doing covers for the Buffy comics. This Eliza Dushku / Faith image for instance, is stunning. And I just realised today that her work has really influenced what art I take a liking to these days.

[003] Your deal of the day: TGI Fridays - Buy 1 Entree, Get 1 Entree FREE. You can use it as many times this month as you want though I suggest calling your local TGIF before your drive over.

[004] On Prop 8, penknife and furiosity say it best over here and here. Oh and off topic but Snape beat Obama in the polls.
