Animal Farm - The Final Battle

Last week I was reading George Orwell's Animal Farm. Although it's a classic and incorporated into many high school English class curricula, I had never read it til now. One night, when I was about 80% through the book, I had a vivid dream about it. In my dream, Benjamin the Goat was leading a revolt against the pigs. The farm lay in smoky, fiery ruins. Napoleon the Pig was wearing a mechanized battle suit, a la Iron Man or RoboCop. He had the goat pinned to the ground beneath his armored boot. It looked something like the image below. Needless to say, the next day I finished the novel and was sorely disappointed to find that this apocalyptic scene did not occur. I hope out hope that Hollywood will adapt it into a movie someday, in which case I'm certain it will end like this.

The God of Pinball

This weekend is the MoCCA Arts Festival, and my buddies Allan Dorison and Ken Wong have put together a post-show after party and art show, and I'm in it. The theme is "Modern Pinball." What does that mean? Come to Modern Pinball NYC at 362 Third Ave on Saturday the 5th and find out! Admission is $10 - with a discount if you use the code “CB-ORIGAMI”. That'll get you unlimited pinball machine play from 6 PM to 2 AM and there will also be live figure drawing sessions in the back room. It'll be fun.

This is my contribution . . .
