So, after a gap of only sixteen years, I've written another Dog Translucent! Why the reason for this sudden revival? Well, I was thinking about all the recent updates of Sherlock and I wondered if I could jump on the bandwagon in some way, so I started working on a strip called "The Sherlock of Small Things" in which Sherlock solves uninteresting crimes using household hints and tips. While doing a bit of research, I realised I was basically writing another Dog Translucent strip, so Sherlock was dropped and DT proudly reintroduced.

So last night was the first screening of the sequel to Rocket Science, Grime City PD. I went along to bask in reflected glory, and was very impressed by the finish product. I'm not sure how many people from the animation industry were there - I wouldn't recognise them if they were. Then again, I wouldn't even recognise Nick Park unless he was wearing a bow tie and carrying an Oscar.

Since I'm posting things off the internet today, here's Finland's entry into this year's "World's Scariest Cloud" competition.
Occasionally I like to look at places on Google Street View at random, and the other day I found myself on a remote country road in north Scotland. In the distance I saw some sheep, so clicked for a closer look, only to find something strange about one of them. One was a goat, but it seemed to have wings. I looked at it for a bit, and even counted the number of legs to make sure it wasn't two animals, one in front of the other. I wonder how much you can expect to pay to eat goat wings...

This video, on La Repubblica's site, shows an Icelandic team with a particularly detailed and well-thought out goal celebration. The title of the page is "The Most Absurd Way To Celebrate A Goal" and it's difficult to disagree, especially since it was only a penalty!
