Dated New Yorker Cartoons of People Doing Normal Things

I tried showing Ange these and she got hung up on the fact that these couldn’t possibly ever have been funny. I mean, she’s not wrong.

The World of Colour

I’ve been restoring and colourizing some old black and white family photos in Photoshop lately. Here are some of my favourites:

My grandpa Milner and his basketball team. Circa 1922.
My great grandpa Frank Milner. Unknown date.
My mom in about grade 4. Circa 1962.
My aunts and uncles and Milner grandparents before my dad was born. Circa 1943.
My grandma and grandpa Scoville on their wedding day. Circa 1942

I’ll save the rest for another day.

One Second Everyday 2021

Having a three year old and a two year old brings its share of ups and downs but the ups are super fun. We didn’t travel a whole lot however we found fun things to do here in Lethbridge and on the occasional trip to see the grandparents.

Here’s a look at one second of each of my days during 2021.

Paper Craft Delorean

The DeLorean is a two-door, two-passenger, rear-engine powered sports car manufactured and marketed by John DeLorean’s DeLorean Motor Company (DMC) and was sold in the United States from 1981 until 1983. Although it was a commercial failure, it captured the public’s imagination when it was featured as the vehicle Doc Brown used to make a time machine in Back to the Future.

Here’s a paper craft project for fans of the Back to the Future DeLorean, (you’ll find each pdf has a different version — one for each movie).

Translated from the now defunct source the author describes them as such:

Tomo is a work designed for children, which can be assembled by simply inserting it without gluing for a certain presentation. I made four types that appeared in the movie, but the flight type was impossible.

I used glue on the ones I put together. I’m not sure how it would have worked otherwise.

Disney Art Featured at the Met

The Metropolitan Museum of Art hopes to entice visitors with 150 Disney artifacts.

Watch a preview of the exhibition “Inspiring Walt Disney: The Animation of French Decorative Arts,” on view at The Met Fifth Avenue from December 10, 2021 through March 6, 2022.

Pink castles, talking sofas, and a prince transformed into a teapot: what sounds like fantasies from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ pioneering animations were in fact the figments of the colorful salons of Rococo Paris. The Met’s first-ever exhibition exploring the work of Walt Disney and the Walt Disney Animation Studios’ hand-drawn animation will examine Disney’s personal fascination with European art and the use of French motifs in his films and theme parks, drawing new parallels between the studios’ magical creations and their artistic models.

Ted Lasso perfectly balances absurdity with simplicity

I quite enjoyed season one of Ted Lasso. I haven’t finished season two yet but my friends tell me after a couple of rough episodes the final episodes recover and it’s worth watching.
