so i still want a pet tiger

Transportation problems aside, I really would like a pet tiger.
Can I have one? No, of course not.

. . . or can I?
If it's mechanical?
I could ride it.

The tiger's name is Shiva, and there are several Quicktime movies of it on the artist's website. His name is Kezanti, and he does some very interesting work with the intersection of biological form and movement and mechanics. Do note the careful and well-executed decorative surface work on Shiva.

I am so freaking tickled to have found this.

I wonder if Shiva is licensed for street use? It would be slow to get anywhere, but it would be fun riding her around the neighborhood.

Oh, I know! How much fun would that be? And how are you, R A L and C?

Hangin' in there, we guess. We had some connection problems for a week or so. Iowa Telecom kept insisting the problems were some setting or another on our machine that we needed to change, then the problem mysteriously just 'went away'.
