Candy Wednesday

There's just something violent in this imagery of a giant, red candy cockerel in Russia being carved up by kids:



And, to keep with my candy theme of the day, it appears that there's a documentary about a guy who invented a fancy jelly bean.



Like in a lot of industries, it appears that the film is focused on his regrets, and the lack of joy his creativity has bought him. It seems that there's a lot of stories about people who create being unhappy with their creations, or losing out on enjoying the fruits from their work--but maybe I'm just in a particularly cynical mood this morning.
