Happy Halloween

Leaving my house today for errands and I bumped into the hot dog gang.
That's death dog on the far right.



From a great blog called The Impossible Cool which showcases photos of people being, well, cool.

This just looked fun to me this morning.

Big hats. There ain't nothing wrong with them. I kind of always want a 10-gallon hat around in case of an emergency. As much as my Texan relatives will cringe when they read this, I'd also like that 10-gallon hat to be made out of foam.

This is our new favorite video around the house.

The Berlin Reunion

It feels so good to read about people doing it. I mean really doing it, you know? Something artsy & creative, larger than life and steeped in imagination. Making the banal beautiful, na'mean?

That's how I felt earlier today when I saw the images on one of my favorite photography blogs, The Big Picture (who I've featured here on SF before).

Their description today's photoset entitled The Berlin Reunion is:
Earlier this week, 1.5 million people filled the streets of Berlin, Germany to watch a several-day performance by France's Royal de Luxe street theatre company titled "The Berlin Reunion". Part of the celebrations of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, the Reunion show featured two massive marionettes, the Big Giant, a deep-sea diver, and his niece, the Little Giantess. The storyline of the performance has the two separated by a wall, thrown up by "land and sea monsters". The Big Giant has just returned from a long and difficult - but successful - expedition to destroy the wall, and now the two are walking the streets of Berlin, seeking each other after many years apart. I'll let the photos below tell the rest of the story. (35 photos total)
Here are my two favorite images (click on each for a larger image), but you should check out the whole set and feel good that creativity is alive and well:
