Sort of redefines 'clunky', doesn't it?

I feel like the definition of 'clunky' has stayed put for me.

Good stuff. Reminiscence of the old Life magazine-- although perhaps almost any photo essay is, as they pretty much defined the genre.

People seek refuge from the heat on a beach in Athens

People are stupid.

i long to see the fascinating, frightening film by Ingmar Bergman about insects living under the antartic ice.

fascinating, frightening film by Ingmar Bergman

After loosing a chess game with Death they dream of suffering in an oppressive European heatwave. They fight for survival and in the process help shape modern India. With the shadowy guidance of a statuesque Scandinavian blonde, of course.

Nickyskye, this is bitchin' stuff, but you are supposed to bury these kind of random link dumps in MetaTalk, using the unordered list format. Nevertheless, good stuff and rock on.

Thanks nickyskye. The antarctic link was good and the Bergman. I watched an interview of him by Dick Cavett on dvd last week.

But I aint clicking the insect link cuz I hate spiders. Really I hate 'em. With a passion.

That "Life under the Antartic ice" series is one long game "spot the elder things". The one in the fourth photo is the best candidate, but there are many others.

Oh, and the fifth photo scares the shit out of me. The tranquil blue sea seen from below, the edge of the ice, fine. But under the ice, there's a huge, unbroken abyssal darkness. It really could hide anything.

Too much Lovecraft will do this to you. You've been warned.
