Well, I work about two miles away from this zoo, so I could go and be disdained by this giraffe calf in person.

Theoretically. The air is about the temperature of boiling right now and the idea of actually setting foot on zoo grounds is not that tempting, really, even with the possibility of being personally disdained.

FaceApp cheers up sad paintings at Dutch museum. Yeah, it's pretty silly but I kind of like the way it makes some of the portraits look like they might have done in real life.

BTW, a Finnish animation studio is creating a new series of The Moomins, and is running an Indiegogo campaign to fund the visual development. They're working with Tove Jansson's niece.

Hey, you!

Yes, you!

I believe you are in need of being disdained by a giraffe calf.

You're welcome.

and because I go what seems like weeks without posting and then unleash a flurry of posts rather than putting them in one big post...meet Nico the ocelittle.

This disdainful giraffe calf's ear game is ON POINT. Is yours? I didn't think so.

Hrm. So I'm technically Clan Fraser on my mother's side, given that my maternal grandfather was a member of Clan Fraser. And the hero of Outlander is a Fraser. Which means that the Outlander collection from Torrid landed in my inbox this morning and I'm mostly annoyed that they're using the wrong damn tartan.

(I'd get a "Je suis prest" shirt except that I hate the shape of the one that they're selling.)

RocketNews24 points out a pro manga artist who posts 2-minute drawing tips videos. I've watched a couple, and there's no dialogue, and while there's some Japanese text, you don't need to be able to read it to watch them draw and get benefit from it.

You might need to watch this young kiwi bouncing around on a wildlife cam.

Apparently his name is Rawiri.

GQ did a photo shoot with rock climbers climbing in expensive designer clothing.

Outdoor Research offered a different take on it.

Been disdained by a giraffe calf today?

The new baby giraffe in Cincinatti knows how fabulous it looks in its sawdust outfit and exactly how fabulous you don't look.
