There’s just something about a Richard Scarry book that instantly takes you back to your childhood. Today Mr. Scarry would have been 94 years old. But, as long as his books are around, he’s timeless.
Who was your favorite Richard Scarry character?
Lowly Q. Worm, for the win (although I don’t believe his middle initial is Q, or that he has a middle name, it just always seemed appropriate to add that bit of formality)
Peter Dinklage, circa 1973
YEARS too late!

Quote with 6 notes
History, which interprets the past to understand the present and confront the future, is the least rewarding discipline for a dying species.
American artist Dave Cole transforms existing machinery into awesome new devices with functions completely unrelated to their original purpose. In 2012 he transformed a 22,000 pound steam roller into The Music Box. Instead of flattening surfaces the machine now plays the “Star Spangled Banner.”
Though Cole stripped most of the weight out of the compactor to make the sculpture more manageable, it still weighs in at 2,000 pounds. The sculpture was commissioned by the Cleveland Institute of Art.
Back in 2005 Dave Cole created The Knitting Machine. Two enormous excavators were fitted with 20-foot-long knitting needles and positioned across from each other. Working together they knitted an oversized American flag. Click here to watch video footage of The Knitting Machine.
