Salsa débil sobre nada!

Stingrays are pissed off!

Holy crap!
Stingray jumps out of water in Florida Keys, hitting and killing Michigan boater

Like something out of a Sci-fi story!

I think the photo shows it all. the thing is HUGE. you have something that big jumping out of the water at your head, I’m not surprised the poor lady is dead!

I like the comment in the last part of the article:
“Rays jump to escape a predator, give birth and shake off parasites,”said Lynn Gear, supervisor of fishes and reptiles at Theater of the Sea in Islamorada. “They do not attack people.”

I don’t know about THAT!

Flash artist feature: H. Hoogerbrugge

I promised an artist feature that would blow your fucken mind. (as in post-fucked mind)
I stumbled across H. Hoogerbrugge a couple of years ago when I was learning flash. Whether you like the subject matter or not, the guy’s got a hell of a lot of talent. (and MAAAAD flash skills)

He started a project back in 1998 and ending in 2001 called “Modern Living/Neurotica series.” Every time I visit the project, I spend at least 3 hours interacting with it.  Almost every detail worth clicking or rolling over has some kind of action associated with it. (ex: on the front page he’s holding a remote, click on any part of him, or the chair, and notice all the details he remembered. Not the most elaborate example, but look at the rest and you’ll see what I mean)

#96 called ‘Summer’ Creeps me out every time. I think it’s the sound.

He has audio associated with almost every piece which only enhances his work, so make sure your speakers are working.  Modern Living / Neurotica series

Some of the people I’ve turned onto this have sent him e-mails about his work and from what I hear he’s  pretty cool to talk to and actually responds. I’ve never e-mailed him because I never know what to tell him or ask him other than things he already knows: “you are a flash GOD”

His main site has some additional flash projects, but the ML/NS had the biggest impact on me and I’m glad I checked that project out first.

Leo Aragon is a dumbass

OK so everyone heard about that moron (Pedro Cortez) that shot his gun at a house killing 2 people on new years right? 9news interviewed his dumb ass brother. I’m pretty sure the person interviewing him made sure to document exactly what he said so that his pure genius can shine through:
“I know my brother’s innocent. It’s just a bad thing that happened on New Year’s, you know?”said Leo Aragon, Cortez’s brother. “Everyone has parties, you know? Everybody, New Year’s is a day to shoot their guns. That’s what happens.”

You know? You know? Well, we know it’s a crime you asshole that’s why he’s in jail and is going to pay for being completely irresponsible!
