All of the puns and the timing make it hard to believe that Tex Avery wasn't involved somehow. This cartoon is so similar to Avery's "House of Tomorrow" and "Car of Tomorrow." Walter Lantz is great too though.
"Oh, you get used to anything," I said, annoyed with myself, for actually I was proud of the place.
"I don't. I'll never get used to anything. Anybody that does, they might as well be dead."
"It may be normal, darling; but I'd rather be natural."
"Never love a wild thing, Mr. Bell," Holly advised him. "That was Doc's mistake. He was always lugging home wild things... But you can't give your heart to a wild thing: the more you do, the stronger they get. Until they're strong enough to run into the woods. Or fly into a tree. Then a taller tree. Then the sky. That's how you'll end up, Mr. Bell. If you let yourself love a wild thing. You'll end up looking at the sky... Good luck: and believe me dearest Doc- it's better to look at the sky than live there. Such an empty place; so vague. Just a country where thunder goes and things disappear."
I stumbled on Asobi Seksu a few years ago while putting together a list of songs with titles featuring the days of the week. I couldn't think of a "Thursday" so on a whim searched for it on iTunes. Sure enough, there it was.
Geocaching is a treasure hunting game where you use a GPS to hide & seek containers with other participants.
Owings Memorial Grove (aka Redwood Gulch), off Hwy 1 is the location of a geocache spot... but I didn't know that until after I spent the afternoon climbing the waterfall. Regardless of missing out on treasure, there was a ton of great nature-made monkey bars to play on.
As a general rule, I don't like round buildings; they waste space. However, a half-week's stay at Treebones Resort has made me much more tolerant to round buildings. Treebones features furnished round tents called yurts in addition to traditional camping sites and a human nest.
"Illuminated and electrified by lightning, a roiling ash and gas plume rises over Chile's Puyehue volcano (map) Sunday.
There may be as many as three distinct types of volcanic lightning, volcanic seismologist Steve McNutt told National Geographic News in 2010.
Large, spectacular "natural fireworks" sometimes accompany eruptions, along with an intermediate type, which shoots up from a volcano's vents and reaches lengths of about 1.8 miles (3 kilometers), and finally bolts that can be as short as about three feet (one meter) long and last just a few milliseconds."
"7's the key number here. Think about it. 7-Elevens. 7 dwarves. 7, man, that's the number. 7 chipmunks twirlin' on a branch, eatin' lots of sunflowers on my uncle's ranch. You know that old children's tale from the sea. It's like you're dreamin' about Gorgonzola cheese when it's clearly Brie time, baby."
