Talking about fatherhood, I suggest you the novel "The Road", by Cormac McCarthy.
Finally I saw "The Future is Unwritten", a documentary by Julien Temple on Joe Strummer, leader of The Clash. As a fan, the movie often touched my heart, as a man it made me question: "Where am I at?"
06 Apr 2008 SHRINKIKEA
IKEA products are experiencing a strange shrinking process. A case history of this disturbing phenomenon is described.
Last week (19 March) Sir Arthur C. Clarke performed his final lift off and now probably occupies a geo-stationary orbit above the Indian Ocean.

I like homemade carnival disguises. My son wanted a Transformer outfit, he loves the 1986 version of Optimus Prime (Commander in italian).

Great tension between the Vatican and the Italian scientific community: the Pope was invited to hold a Lectio Magistralis during the opening ceremony of the academic year at the University of Rome, La Sapienza. Professors insurged declaring unfit the presence of the Pope, while radical leftist students have staged a sit-in. Read the letter of professor M. Cini which firmly explains scientists' point of view (in Italian). In short it is argued that the Church is trying to split the front of the scientific community relying on moral issues and bringing forward the thesis of Intelligent Design versus Darwinism. The Pope chose to withdrawal. Still burning the ashes of Giordano Bruno, still burning the humiliation of Galileo!

I've been twice in the country of Pablo Neruda, fishing and riding along the Ruta Cinco. Apart from the spectacular environment (desert and ice, ocean and Cordillera), apart from the historical events and the cultural blendings, I'm in love with the particular mood of Chileans, always balanced between the shame and pride of being southamericans. I drew these sketches in Rio Puelo, others will follow (see also First Five Years)

PREGNANT KILLER -If I ever had a punk rock band... here's the logo (image, 16KB). By the way, Andrew Bianchi, a punk teenager from Rhode Island, shares my same nickname. Meet him at http://www.myspace.com/20563077. He's a great fan of Hibakusha from Providence, a band that deserves attention starting from it's name.

customIKEAtion -"...as soon as you buy IKEA, you start working for IKEA..." that's what a friend of mine complained about the swedish furniture retailer.

MONA PIXA'S SMILE -If Leonardo Da Vinci were to be alive in our days, he would have painted his masterpiece pixelating it. Ok, you lose all the details, but squeezing your eyes you will still be able to see Mona Pixa's Smile (image, 24KB).

I managed to index the color palette, allowing diffusion so to match original colors. The result is a new pattern that adds to the original checkers (GIF, 66KB). You can download a hi-res version, to be printed at the original size of the painting (GIF, 1.8MB). As you can see in this enlargement of the smile (GIF, 41KB) details are back! By the way, I'm not the first to discretize Mona Lisa.
