3 * 709

On Saturday I visited the local museum. I think the last time I was there was over ten years ago. Some things are exactly as I remember them. For instance, there are lots of arrowheads and other Indian artifacts. Some things are quite different. They didn't used to have live animals (an iguana, a large snake, and poison dart frogs) and they didn't used to have fossils, even in replica form. The most impressive display hasn't been completed yet, but it's going to be a complete replica of a wooly mammoth skeleton. Right now there's just the skull and a leg.

Saturday evening I went with my parents to the last showing of Macbeth in the CSI fine arts building. It was a decent rendition; my biggest regret was that they didn't have a better actor playing the heir to the throne. He enunciated well, but gave no appropriate inflection. This showed up strongly when he had dialogue with Macduff, who was a very good actor. The witches were quite skilled at their evil cackling.

I've started a new blog for my comic strip. I'd been posting it on a private forum, but this way it will be more accessible. The address is www.stickromancer.blogspot.com, which I will add to the links on this page. I guess this would be a good time to make clear that "stickromancer" is a pun on the word "necromancer" and the fact that I'm using stick figures. It is not a reference to someone who woos sticks.
