So , here is a link to a musical celebration seen on mousemedicine , and if you want to see another (super furry) take on universal connection,

What a fantastic graphic design! You could have done a great bit of design work for the book or play "Wicked".

Now I'm trying to enlarge the Alice & Mad Hatter flash image I saw.

I love that illustration. :o)

It's one of those cultural touchstones that everybody instantly recognizes now- but if you went back in time and showed it to someone before 1939, they wouldn't have a clue what they were looking at.

That image somehow reminds me of viking longboats. Maybe I've been reading too many books
