So wonderful.

I love the shot and the caption, but most of all I love the title.

Great shot indeed.

That title is the name of an album by Boards of Canada.

They made, on another album, a track called "Everything You Do is a Balloon" which, aside from being another example of a great title, contains a pretty sublime introduction (the rest of the track is more perfunctory).

Oh wow, thanks for the shoutout. Yes, I stole the title from Boards of Canada. Who, it must be said, themselves stole their name from the Film Board of Canada, sponsors of very dazzling documentaries, educational films, and animated shorts. Especially animated shorts! There are DVDs about of the work of [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norman_McLaren]Norman McLaren]Norman McLaren[/url]. Totally delightful and very much worth tracking down.

It's excellent that a scottish band took the film board of canada shorts to heart enough to name themselves after it.

And it's a pretty good album. I may just have to go listen to it right now.
