Great stuff! I like the sign collection and the abandoned roller-coaster/color experiment was a fortuitous failure.

A couple years ago I started asking linguist friends if there was a name for situations like this one: the way a word or phrase is spelled are at odds with the way the same word or phrase is pronounced, based on the general rules of that language. As far as I can tell, there isn't a name for this phenomenon -- and it might be unique to American place names. Of which there are a zillion examples of the same issue, especially here in the Northwest. (COUCH STREET REPRESENT)

tonight I made my first animation frames, animated as part of a group, spread the idea of Vulcan Strawberry Shortcake, sketched an alien autopsy, and discovered Italian Spiderman.

That sounds like a day of excellent accomplishments, by one set of standards, or a day of doing absolutely nothing, by another. Congratulations on both counts.

"Writing a book is an adventure. To begin with, it is a toy and an amusement; then it becomes a mistress, and then it becomes a master, and then a tyrant. The last phase is that just as you are about to be reconciled to your servitude, you kill the monster, and fling him out to the public." - Winston Churchill

This 90-minute video of Stephen Colbert interviewing Neil deGrasse Tyson makes me want to memorize Dr. Tyson's answers and spend the rest of my life evangelizing science to my fellow Americans. Awesome stuff.

(Interview starts about 6 minutes in, after a bunch of thanks and applause.)

Good job, BBC1 - I actually enjoyed this holiday programming trailer enough to spread it voluntarily. 11th Doctor, Stephen Fry, Eddie Izzard, Gillian Anderson, Christopher Eccleston, and a great soundtrack choice.
