Unico and the Island of Magic

{youtubejw}ulLK-vdOrOM{/youtubejw}  This is very possibly going to be the lamest entry I’ve ever made.
 
Anyone ever see an anime called Unico and the Island of Magic while growing up?  Anyone?  Well, I was probably 7 when I first saw this on the Disney Channel.  My brother and I were nuts about it.  We recorded it on the VCR and watched it I don’t know how many times.  It’s about this little unicorn (yeah, I know, I’m making a sissy of myself) named Unico and his adventures surrounding a mysterious magician’s apprentice, his estranged family, and a psychotic marionette-become-wizard.  Ok ok ok…  So, if this doesn’t grab you enough, let me put in that this movie used to scare the bujeebas out of my brother and me because the psychotic marionette was on a vendatta against humanity turning people into “living puppets” to be stonework in his castle in a place called (get this) NIGHTMARE ISLAND!  
 
Yeah.  Seriously!
 
It scared us half to death!
 
Now do you understand why puppets freak me out?
 
I’ve embedded a link to YouTube where someone was cool (and also foolish) enough to post the movie, in its entirety, in 10 parts.  I’m embedding a link to the 2nd part which introduces Toby, the magician/apprentice and my favorite character.

Tesla Motors

All right.  As long as I’m on the automotive kick, I’ll make one more quick entry.  I’m traveling right now and was on the road in Century City in Los Angeles.  I saw my first Tesla Motors dealership!  Ok. . .   I am not a gearhead by any means.  Yeah, my last entry was about BMW and believe me, since I read case studies on them in school, I have huge admiration for that company and their vehicles, however, if (big IF) I ever were to spend serious money on a vehicle (and I don’t see myself doing that any time soon as I have other priorities) I would invest in a Tesla machine…  Here’s a link to Tesla Motors’ website : http://www.teslamotors.com/.  Basically, they’re a Silcon Valley group taking on Detroit with an all electric car that out performs a Porsche.  Pricey, sure, but they have ambitions to market a 4 door family sedan.  Really really cool company.  As a geek (again, not a gearhead), I can’t help but be blown away.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

PlayPlay

I need to start forming a habit of updating this blog at least every other day.  :)

The past few days, I’ve been occupied editing footage my brother and I took for our next project, as well as watching the Olympics.  I’m also kicking around some ideas for a series of webcams…

Anyway.  I wanted to jot something quick down.  Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has been pushed back until next summer.  As a fan of the films, and the books, I thought I’d put up a link to the trailer from Apple’s Quicktime site.  Looks like it will be great when it comes around.
