Zen master Zinji once spoke that if you meet Buddha on the road, you must kill him. Clearly he wasn’t speaking literally here, his intention was explain the concept that reality as we know it as an impermenant image, what we know of the world around us can fluctuate, and that if we think we’ve arrived at the answer, and we accept that, we’re probably doomed from that point on. I have an affinity for this message, because it subscribes to the idea that we should always strive for further knowledge, enlightenment, and inner peace. Trudge through the times, good or bad, however shitty they may be, because something interesting may always show up on the other side, such as what I found online this week, after the jump.

- At the rate Tim Burton produces material, I’m sure the following was something he farted out on to a cocktail napkin in between meetings for one thing or another. “Hey! Tim!” some people would shout, “Wanna design a float for this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade?!” Sure, the frizzy-haired spectacle would respond before shipping them the napkin the following week.

Look for Johnny Depp somewhere nearby, no doubt piloting this thing, dressed up by Burton again to look like another child-molester.
