The Matrix

It's great science fiction with awesome special effects.... but unfortunately, it also has a really excessive amount of gunfire and kung foo fighting. [My favorite thing about it was the way the Matrix appears on external monitors: as a computer screen covered with columns of strange green symbols, cascading downwards like digital rain. It would make for great Neutral Television... I'm thinking about recreating it on my 3DO development station.]

What's New?

New Iceland cartoonthe story so far

Fluxx Third Printing report: The decks have shipped! To those of you whose shipments were delayed because Fluxx was on back-order for awhile, we once again thank you for your patience. You should be receiving your package in the next day or three.

Spring is here! We spent much of the weekend just hanging out on our deck, enjoying the rebirth and renewal of the world, and eating chocolate bunnies and eggs.

Actually, we've never much liked our deck; it offers very little privacy, and we dislike feeling like goldfish. The only piece of furniture we have out there is a big picnic table that we've also never liked; it isn't very comfortable and anyway, since we're floor-centric types, we'd rather just sit on the floor... except of course that the floor out there is even less comfortable than the table. But this weekend, we changed all that. We gave our picnic table to Joe and Meg, and instead rolled out a small carpet, which we keep in the van for occasional temporary use (we originally bought it for use at trade shows). Then, by bringing out a few throw pillows and a miniature coffee table, we were able to turn our deck into a delightfully floor-oriented, fair-weather-only lounge.

This breakthrough in deck usage has energized us about using our deck, and we've since decided to surround it with vine-covered lattice-work. (This will eliminate the fishbowl effect.) It will still be open to the sky, but the walls will be high enough to keep our indoor cats from escaping, thus creating a kind of a courtyard, where even they may join us. We also plan to build a weather-resistant bench that we can store the carpet and pillows in when not in use. But all of that is a project for another weekend.

Thought Residue
This week, we were interviewed for stories by two newspapers: the Daily Record (a Baltimore-based business journal) and the College Park Gazette (our neighborhood's free weekly). We'll be posting those articles here just as soon as they appear in print...
Earlier this week, Robin lost her beloved cat Tash to congestive heart failure. (Meanwhile, our Little Cat Minkoff has developed a heart murmur...)
