As pointed to by [livejournal.com profile] nou - an interesting mind exercise. Take eight objects, and divide them into two categories, each with four items in, on any basis you like. Using http://kevan.org/category.cgi for the word list helps, that randomly generates eight for you. It also lets you pick a seed number, guaranteeing that we all get the same word list to compare efforts - I've chosen 4242, and I suggest you go there and put that in, and play with the lists a couple of times (either in your head or with the little javascript whatsit they give you) before you open this

I posted awhile back about a scanned-in comic book version of the Ramayana[1], and today I found - via http://www.boingboing.net/ - that American cartoonist Nina Paley is making an animated musical version, much shorter, giving Sita's side of the story. Free to download, though very slow if you watch them online. I'm downloading the torrents now, and what I've seen so far is absolutely completely and utterly wonderful.

I've always loved the Ramayana of Valmiki, ever since I read a Fontana translation at the age of 7 or so. This is a wonderful comic book version.
