16bit - Dinosaurs



I posted an audio/animation showcase from N.A.S.A earlier this year, and now we come to 16bit. This song is freakin GNARLY and makes me high as a kite. At only 2 minutes, it's nowhere near long enough. Set your volume to LOUD and start raging.

Peter Sís & The Conference Of The Birds

Early this morning as I was browsing NPR, I happened upon an excerpt of The Conference Of The Birds - a beautifully illustrated retelling of an epic Sufi poem, from Czech writer and illustrator, Peter Sís. My reading Wish List is always teetering on the brink of entirely consuming me, but this one went right to the top of the pile, along with The Wall and The Three Golden Keys. Looking over his body of work (most of it for children), I was reminded just how powerful well written and illustrated books are for curious little beings - how much they help to shape our experience of, and interaction with, the burgeoning world around us.
