bunny_hugger's dragon kite, just launched.


The shadow cast by the dragon kite and its long mylar tail.


The dragon kite in flight.


The cover for bunny_hugger's 1985 album.

Trivia: NBC organized its second, Blue, radio network two months after going on the air in November 1926. It organized the Pacific-coast Orange network in April 1927. Source: The Magic Music Box: The Golden Age of Musical Radio, Thomas A Delong.
