Morning Snap: Kitchen Leap — 7:21 a.m.


Every morning Susan divies up the breakfast can of Fancy Feast to the four cats. Bink dines in the bedroom, Pumpkin on the breakfast table, Pepper and Jiggy gobble theirs up on the kitchen counter. For whatever reason, after he finishes, Pepper walks to about mid-stove sets himself and makes the not-so-long jump across the not-so-vast chasm to the kitchen island. Today I caught it on tape and extruded this still. The faaaaaacinating three-second, three megabyte Quicktime video clip with Shadow looking on in awestruck appreciation is here.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
