2nd origami lesson: blitz box (to the left), star box (up), and pidgeon (to the right). I used contrast to make the photo more clear. #origami #folding #paper #box #paperbox #blitzbox #starbox #pidgeon #paperpidgeon #paperbird #hobby #hobbies #filter #contrast

I think I’ll give up on teflon now. ._.

You see, earlier today (or rather, yesterday evening), I had pancakes. I didn’t eat the first one - the one in this photo - because it looks like some of the teflon coating got stuck on the pancake. (Not sure if it’s visible in the photo, I did use a filter to increase contrast.) I thought I’ve always been very careful when handling the teflon frying pan, but apparently the coating got damaged somehow. I just hope this is the first time the coating got loose, so I haven’t ingested teflon residue earlier. o_O

I did fry the rest of the pancakes on my trusty cast iron pan and with another spatula instead, so at least I got my evening meal (and leftover pancakes for later). Later today (it’s past midnight now, I watched documentaries) I’ll have to figure out where to dispose of the teflon pan. I suppose one can’t just throw it in the scrap metal bin. Or maybe I will anyway. The pancake goes in the garbage anyway.

The second part of my DVD harvest: Disney’s “Frozen”, loosely based on a fairy tale by H.C Andersen, and the televised adaptation of James Clavell’s historical novel “Shogun”. I assume I don’t need to tell more about “Frozen”. “Shogun” (which I haven’t read or seen before) is about an English sailor stranded in 17th century Japan, where he gets involved in the power struggle as to whom will become Shogun, the military commander of the Samurai and dictator of Japen. Directed by Jerry London. Starring Richard Chamberlain, Toshiro Mifune, and Yoko Shimada. Narrated by Orson Welles. Music by Maurice Jarre.

Had to use a rebate code before it would expire, so I ordered a few DVDs. Here are three animated feauture films for adults: the two Fritz the Cat movies based on Robert Crumb’s classic underground comics (the box to the left), and the very controversial, satiric “Coonskin” which is about gangsters in Harlem (the box to the right).

The latter, and the first Fritz the Cat film, were directed by the avantgarde animator Ralph Bakshi. Robert Crumb actually hated the adaptations of his feline anti-hero so much, that he killed him off in the comics. “Coonskin” angered some folks so much that cinemas were bombed, demonstrations were held against it, and the film’s creators got threatened. The voice actors for “Coonskin” includes soul artist Barry White, Philip Michael Thomas (known as Tubbs in “Miami Vice”), and Scatman Crothers (“The Shining”, “Hong Kong Phooey”). Bakshi thinks it’s his best film, and among its fans are film directors Spike Lee and Quentin Tarantino. #fritzthecat #theninelivesoffritzthecat #coonskin #robertcrumb #ralphbakshi #animated #cartoons #adult #nsfw #rotoscoping

I don’t know what kind of plants these are (those with red-green leaves), but they look pretty IMHO. #autumn #fall #höst #evening #kväll #växjö #nofilter

This one looks a bit alien… And rather dead, I’m afraid.

Found this bad boy at the supermarket bargain bin. “Raid on Entebbe” directed by Irvin Kershner. Starring Charles Bronson, James Woods, Yaphet Kotto and other movie stars. Director’s cut. Based on a true story. Probably more realistic and believable than “Delta Force” starring Chuck Norris, which was loosely based/inspired by the same events. #raidonentebbe #irvinkershner #charlesbronson #actionmovie #israel #uganda #idiamin #terrorism #planehijacking #basedonatruestory

Got this bargain at a book outlet: an out-of-print yet quite recent Swedish translation* of Appolonios Rhodios’ epic Argonautika, the basis for the 1960’s fantasy film “Jason and the Argonauts”.
