Two "holy #$%@"s for the week--one amazing, the other, well, I'm thrilled...

Firstly, Google Earth has an ultra-high-resolution of, among other fine paintings, The Garden of Earthly Delights by Heironymous Bosch. I really really love that painting, and it was amazing to be able to take a close walk through it--the sort of detail you'd be able to pick out with a magnifying glass if you were actually standing in front of it. Wow!

Bless you, Goooogle!

Secondly, and really this is from my childhood, I saw a trailer Sunday for a wide screen version of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. It looks like they almost totally re-worked the plot, but the book was like 30 pages long and pretty plot-light--it was mostly about the visuals. I can't say I like the character design, the original book had such a warm art style, and CGI's almost always kind of cold, even when Pixar does it. But...yay!
