Brian made this for me!!
I love these intros so much! I remember how excited I was to find that the illustrator had also done plates for a certain favorite children’s (although upon later reading, maybe not entirely appropriate for children) mystery book series…
Stephen Merchant, Joseph Gordon Levitt, and Jimmy Fallon. Amazing.
Really upset I can’t get this in the states.
Well, maybe not quite this megalomaniacal.

Slowly but surely! Here’s one of Eric and me from our first full day, and second hike of the trip. We did the whole Devil’s Garden loop. I think it took something like 4.5 hours.
Except for the inaccuracies surrounding the pronunciation of ‘tulaberries’ and what series they were in, and where that series took place, this animated version of Badger’s speech on last night’s ‘Breaking Bad’ is pretty great.
be sure to rollover ‘notes’ to see photo captions!
A month away from Boulder: back home to Illinois then San Diego Comic-Con, LA, Emma & Robbie’s wedding near Placerville, the Bay Area.
Too lazy to dig out the images in this, but this photo essay about walled cities is really incredible. The Dutch!
When conditions are just right in the Bay of Biscay, the body of water nestled in the elbow crook between western France and northern Spain, huge blooms of phytoplankton begin to emerge. The marine microorganisms live in the bay all year, but in the spring, the combination of more sunlight, warmer waters and an influx of nutrients carried by ocean currents and freshwater rivers swollen with melted snow creates explosive blooms–those multi-colored swirls in the water.
The massive population explosion is big enough to see from space, and NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image with the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) earlier this month. The blooms usually die down by May, so this might be one of the last swirly-marine-life photos we get this year.
So cool! From my mom:
