On April 14, a performer from the “Walking with Dinosaurs” arena show came to the Stanley A. Milner branch of the Edmonton Public Library to promote the new tour, wearing the juvenile T-Rex suit.
These aren’t my pictures, but the ones posted to the EPL Facebook. He was only there for about five minutes, but made a good show of it, stomping around and tossing his head, sticking his nose out to be petted. Nobody seemed to mind the visible legs in the costume, and a lot of kids drew back, while a few of those cried.
Note the bristles on the suit, which weren’t there before: the presenter claimed that this version of the arena show would add feathers to the dinosaur costumes and animatronics for the sake of accuracy.
Which means I have an excuse to go again—awright!
The same group also put on a “How to Train Your Dragon” stage show, also.
Commander Synergy of the Day: Isn’t it annoying how that wolf token is Legendary? The answer is yes. So how about we just ignore that rule and make lots of wolves!

I follow Shaenon Garrity’s comics fairly religiously, but it was still Tumblr that alerted me to the existence of this (good, if sad) one. Shaenon’s website has more of her comics listed (though not this one even though the original file is on the site). And I have to mention that she is the creator of Monster of the Week and Skin Horse which I have plugged before.
I’d dropped Shaenon a line asking if she’d mind if I cut up the comic I previously blogged to make it more tumblr friendly, but I see I’m behind the curve here. Hurrah, etc.

This is why, even though I love my cats, I’m a dog person.
I will always be grateful for how this was depicted in the film.

The saddest thing I have ever heard:
I (sabino) just read a comment from a 2004 article by the ny times about the loneliest whale in the world. scientists have been tracking her since 1992 and they discovered the problem:
she isn’t like any other baleen whale. unlike all whales, she doesn’t have friends. she doesn’t have a family. she doesn’t belong to any tribe, pack or gang. she doesn’t have a lover. she never had one. her songs come in groups of two to six calls, lasting for five to six seconds each. but her voice is unlike any other baleen whale. it is unique—while the rest of her kind communicate between 12 and 25hz, she sings at 51.75hz. you see, that’s precisely the problem. no other whales can hear her. every one of her desperate calls to communicate remains unanswered. each cry ignored. and with every lonely song, she becomes sadder and more frustrated, her notes going deeper in despair as the years go by.
Pass this on, Tumblr
This is actually pretty important
