Sometimes we forget that we (whomever culturally "we" may be) don't have a monopoly on ideas and art and goofy what-the-hell? fun. So it's nice to be reminded that people in other
countries get wrapped up in creating art projects (much like we all have) that undoubtedly get the stink-eye from their neighbors and encouragement from their peers...like the big-ass robots posted on this Chinese SF fan site
I haven't the slightest idea what they're talking about on the site, but definitely know that I'd like to drive the tank to work during rush hour.
And while I'm thinking about art that makes a BIG impact, I wish I could get Steve Kirk to re-do the exterior of my house the same way he did Harlan Ellison's (which Harlan happily refers to as "The Aztec Temple of Mars")...
