The Dude is a sucker for the natural world…and a great beard.
This John Muir cat is one rad dude. Loves nature and beards.
A large part of conservation land in the U.S. can be connected to Muir. But beyond any activism – activism always has pros and cons – I dig John’s view that nature is an integral part of our lives, and that we should break away from civilization to “wash [our] spirit clean.”
Happy spring. It’s a beautiful day. Let’s get out there and wash our spirit.
And Muir had a killer beard. Lookin’ good John, lookin’ good.
Think they read each other? They must right? Are they going to start reading the Dude? What’s up Kottke and The Kid? The Dudes are big fans. 🙂
But back to the automatic drawing machine. I would have cruised right by their posts if it didn’t show up on both blogs at relatively the same time. An automatic drawing machine just would not have grabbed my attention. Seems basic. Boring.
I was way off. The machines are basic, yes. But the results are far from boring. The automatic drawings are amazingly mesmerizing. As Kottke mentioned, the video seems too short. I could get sucked in for much longer than 1:45.
Automatic drawing machines. Who knew they were so cool?
Enjoy. It’s worth 1:45 of your life.
As a bonus, here’s another automatic drawing machine from The Kid.
I was sent the below videos today by separate, unrelated sources. Both are great parodies of a Dad’s life, and judging by the number of views they’ve had on YouTube, they seem pretty popular…even Toyota has jumped on the Dad bandwagon.
Dad’s are funny creatures. It’s a big shift from single dude to dad, but great dad’s are successfully making the transition every day, and it’s pretty funny to watch…and experience.
Seems the Dude is in the right profession. I suspect the high dollar sponsorships will follow soon.
