Did you know that you can drink lava? But only once
Notes: This adorable little short story was included with the Trifecta movie. Enjoy!
that moment when cute, simple Trifecta flower-viewing turns suddenly very depressing because Hiyori says: “Y’know, sakura blossoms are my favorite! It’s the same name as my mom, actually!” AND THEN YOKOZAWA STARTS FEELING SAD AND GUILTY.
Behold the awesomeness that is Long Ma the fire-breathing dragon-horse, the latest creation by French artist François Delarozière and his art production company La Machine. The 46-ton kinetic sculpture stands almost 40 feet tall and features articulated limbs that can gallop, rear up, and fold beneath him when he wants to sit down. His neck rises and falls and his wonderfully expressive face features eyes that open and close. Best of all, his chest swells from the pressure building in his lungs before he exhales fantastic plumes of smoke from his nostrils and jets of fire from his mouth.
This marvelous interactive sculpture was just debuted in the French city of Nantes and will soon be traveling to Beijing where he’ll be presented in October as part of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between France and China. Long Ma is based on a creature from Chinese mythology, Longma, a fabled winged horse with dragon scales, and will be the hero of a performance entitled “Long Ma Jing Shen” or “The Spirit of the Horse Dragon” during which he’ll face off against a giant spider.

I took a picture of this Trifecta short story to translate later. Delphi tried to help, as you can see.
KEEP AN EYE ON THE STAIRCASES. The swinging staircase in the Harry Potter movies relies on a circular slew ring built into the landing which is square. The landing itself was not to rotate so over-lapping plates were designed to maintain the square landing so the artists could safely walk over the landing whilst the staircase turned. (x)
Morganville is supposed to be on Netflix in October. Is this news to everyone or just me?
*runs to go double check*
