My Early Muir Owl

Chicago designer George Aye took an important next step to ricedaddy-ness (OK, he may not see it that way), proposing to his sweetheart with an elaborate guise involving a gallery, a non-existent artist, laser-cut foamcore, and the power of pattern recognition.

As a married ricedaddy, it sure reminds me of being on that limn between being single and being married, and how beautiful it all looks from there. Still looks beautiful from here, too.

That's AWESOME! Wow. Now all the guys he knows who are still single are screwed. Heh.

Do you know him, Larry? (I saw a link to your company on his site.) Shall we send him that wedding card that says "Now, finally, people will stop asking you, so when are you getting married?" on the front, and inside: "So when are you having kids?" :)

DISL: Yes, he is a colleague of mine in our Chicago office, and as you can see clearly brilliant.

I'm totally glad I proposed to Mrs. Thisislarry before this popped up on the internet, otherwise, I woudlnt know how to top it.... -L

That is so romantical--I hope my wife never sees that video as I will certainly get one of those pummelings that are accompanied by a barrage of "why can't you do stuff like that?", followed by supplemental kicking and finger poking.
great idea, fantastic implementation, nice video for posterity.

OMG, that video actually brought tears to my eyes.
