more objects of desire

i loved this thing the instant i saw it(much more than peter carey's book, the chemistry of tears, which covers this very subject. much, much more!). imagine my surprise then that's its maker, the house of automata, is based here in scotland. so definitely a visit the next time we're in that neck of the woods. the only slight problem is that t has a freakish fear of just these very automata. so much she can only look at them from across the room!

one for the brazilians...

came across this in via the guardian today. obviously it appeals to that same strand as the rouleur reader in me. and equally i understand barely a word - i did immediately send it to my only brazilian protuguese speaking frind demanding she be my film watching proxy. can't wait to see a subtitled version
