After my previous blahg I received, through a variety of channels, a significant number of comments of the form “Dude, QTchange? What the hell is that? Clearly that’s your problem right there, some weirdo third-party utility thing.”
To which I have three things to say: First, you guys aren’t…
I came upon twin fawns in the display case of a mom and pop toy and science store in kansas city, missouri. It took me two years to win the trust of the shop owner and save the money to buy them. A taxidermist spotted a dead deer by the side of the road. He stopped to properly dispose of the body and realized she was pregnant. he opened her and found near full-term twin fawns, he removed and preserved them.
Deer rarely have twins and the taxidermist retained the uterine gesture of their bodies. I built them a vitrine with a light blue base. Their prematurity exaggerates the delicacy of an incredibly sweet thing. The points of their hooves, the length of their lashes, the spots of their hides, nose to small nose in an ur-cartoonish realism … viewers’ eyes trick them into believing the fawns are breathing. The tragedy of beauty is its transience.
The twins live forever in their own demise. They are sleeping beauties. They have been muses since I first saw them.
We dress death in lilies and bronze the names of our dead sons on walls. We erect altars of toys and hold candlelight vigils to express hope. My twin fawns sleep endlessly on their baby blue block in my studio. The twins never opened their eyes yet their wondrous fatality evokes an acceptable alternative to death.

Cordyceps unilateralis. Most of you won’t recognize the name, but some of you may have heard of the effects. What C. unilateralis does is effectively make zombies out of ants. Once an ant is infected the fungus quickly grows inside the ant and eventually takes over it’s brains. At this stage it pilots the zombie ant to the underside of a leaf where the ant under the command of C. unilateralis latches onto the leaf with it’s mandibles. At this stage the fungus dissolves the innards of the ant to fuel it’s own growth but leaves the carapace and mandible muscles attached and even reinforces the ants protection. After some time the fungus explodes out of the ant and spreads it’s spores to infect more ants below.
Neat stuff. :D Zombie ants.
Mike and I were talking about this yesterday and he kept making zombie moans. Crazy man.
Bloggers, TV reporters, print journalists and college media attended a network tour last week on Super Bowl upgrades hosted by Verizon Wireless. The invite-only tours offered journalists an inside look at how network upgrades are planned well in advance of mega events that attract hundreds of…
