Narnia and All That
When The Chronicles of Narnia was premiering in theatres there was a promotional exhibit, featuring life-size Narnia snow globes, at a nearby mall in Denver. The coolest part of the exhibit was the area with the original costumes and props. The snowglobes themselves were nicely done, and captured that magical feel of Narnia.
Here are some photos I took of the snow globe exhibit:

We had planned to make a day of it, and see the movie at the mall theatre after viewing the snow globes. Ironically, the theatre in that mall wasn't even showing the movie! We ended-up seeing it later that day at our local theatre.
It's a beautiful movie. Weta keeps kicking ass and I'm looking forward to the sequels.
The Narnia DVD was just released this past Tuesday, and it has a Pirates of the Carribean 2 trailer on it. The first Pirates is one of my all-time favorite movies, so I'm really looking forward to this one, (as well as the third one).
Here are some interesting links:
I would've loved to attend this.

Art that Sucks
(In a Good Way)
I recently found photos of some amazing straw sculptures! I've never seen anyone sculpt with plastic straws before (at least not like this artist).
Unfortunately the only info I could find on this art/artist is in a Brazilian blog.....and I can't read Portuguese >_<. Still, the photos are very impressive!
