Goodbye Cruel World

Pink Floyd, The Wall 1979

I thought it would be amusing to take a video of Daniel, our Pinktoe tarantula (avicularia avicularia) catching a cricket.  Yes, I am fully aware this may indicate that I have gone to the dark side, what with me posting horrid videos of arachnid-led death and destruction upon hapless crickets.

Perhaps then, you may find it even more unconscionable that I would post a video of Arun, my simian son (homo sapien) doing his best rendition of our tarantula catching said cricket.

And I wonder why on earth I never get selected for BlogHer's Voices of the Year.

Jacob enjoyed the video! We may be watching it a dozen times, too. :)

Hey - you WERE selected last year, as one of the finalists, where the coolest kids hang out.

And I dig the whole "circle of life" vibe you got going here.

Dawn, circle of life and death. :-)

Maybe if you dipped the crickets in chocolate Arun would actually eat one.

I would totally nominate you especially if you do a live re-enactment.
