I suffered a power cut yesterday, right in the middle of Kung Fu Panda on BBC One! It's one of my favourite cartoons of recent years and I was really enjoying it. Jack Black is pretty amazing portraying a fat panda :'] It was about half 7 at night when the power cut, just before the good bit in Kung Fu Panda D: Five minutes later, the power wasn't back on and I was bored out of my mind. I'd never experienced a power cut before! Now I truly understand how utterly boring it it without electricity.
I got so bored that I actually started catching up on art coursework! Usually, I'm plain lazy and leave it all to last minute or because I'm revising for GCSEs -.- Earlier on in the day, I came across this pretty A M A Z I N G artist called Danny Roberts, or otherwise known as Igor+Andre (though the e has an accent thing that I have no idea how to replicate on my keyboard :S). It occurred to be that you can find pretty amazing stuff on the internet. Take a second and think about what life would be like without the magic of the internet. I don't think I've ever known a time without the internet; I'm an internet baby, my kind of "generation" knows not of the time before internet!
I do remember, sometimes, when I was little, teachers at school used to say something along the lines of, "You can use books or the internet for research or come to me for help etc.". Nowadays, they don't even bother with the books (unless they're of retiring age) or the "come to me" bit (because they're getting a tad lazy I reckon [;). So much is relied on the internet and technology. Possibly too much?

It will be freakin' hard to do the paintings justice since the artist is SUPERAMAZINGNESS. If that's a word. Which it isn't but oh well. The English language will live.
