I love bug-themed films. Not in a repressed, Crispin Glover way, I just think bugs look amazing on film, and they must be fun to animate... watch Microcosmos, Joe's Apartment, Hoppity Goes to Town, A Bug's Life, James and the Giant Peach, or... most entertaining of all, Starewicz's The Cameraman's Revenge. And now (drum roll) for the low, low price of a plane ticket to London, you can go to the Arts Pestival! It shall bring out the aesthetic entomologist in all of us. (thanks to Boingboing for the info!)

Plus, for you bug-eaters out there, some recipes for Mopane worms. South Africans are way out front of the rest of us here. My pal Jason, an entomologist, brought back Mopane worms from SA and cooked up ziti with homemade sauce and worms. They crackle, and taste, exactly like Wasa crackers. I kid you not. Mmm mmm.
