We attended First Friday Fractals at the Museum of Science in Albuquerque. It was a beautiful presentation in their planetarium of fractal art with locally composed and produced music. The lecture included some information about fractals but mostly just visual displays and explorations. We've since downloaded free software from the Internet to build our own fractal images. You can check out information about fractals and get the software yourself at http://fractalfoundation.org/. You can play with that software for HOURS and never get bored.
"Lars and the Real Girl" was an incredible look into mental illness and how far we'll go for the people we love. Very moving. If you didn't watch it because it's got a sex doll in it... get over it - she's dressed, chaste and an amazing woman. Oh, and NO, this isn't "Mannequin 8".
