Avatar and the TTC

Quite a weird coincidence. This afternoon, I got my ticket to see Avatar tonight.  ON a completely unrelated online activity I'm looking for how to get a to a friend's house in Scarborough and I type in ttc.com (guessing on the URL for the Toronto Transit Commission).  It takes me to http://ttc.com/index.html which has an embedded image of Avatar and the company's tech connection to the movie.  Wow.

Psychedelic Friday

Driving home from my barber's, my son and I hear The Stones' Sympathy for the Devil (live version).  During pre-dinner music-mixing with my daughter, I request Trout (Nenah Cherry and Michael Stipe) to be added to the playlist.

I sit down to watch Tropic Thunder on-demand on TMN later in the evening - it gets funnier as the movie progresses.  The source track of Trout (Steppenwolf's The Pusher) is on the soundtrack along with Sympathy for the Devil.

Very psychedelic.
