Hi, I'm Rex, I'm a dinosaur and this is my blog.


My Juliet.

We’re kicking off an art installation tomorrow here at AIP’s Gallery of Art and I cannot tell you how excited I am about it.

And I’m not just saying that because Norm stood up on his tippy toes and held a tranq gun to my ankle.

This installation called “Animation B.C” is all about animation before computers came around and the star of the show is none other than Gertie the dinosaur.

I’m going to tell you something. Gertie was an actress. Gertie and I used to date.

Here she is in her most famous role:


Gertie and I were very passionate about each other, but it just wasn’t meant to be. She was a plant eating vegetarian while I was a carnivore, feasting on any dinosaur I could get my teeth on. It made for some tense meals and eventually she was too scared to turn her back on me and I was too scared that one day I’d get just hungry enough.

My God, if you thought Romeo and Juliet were star-crossed lovers …

Also, this goes without saying because you know me by now, but, DON’T TELL SALLY!


Wrangler Update

The Art Institute website now has the Animation B.C. news page up.


  1. Many herbivores and carnivores are able to connect in lasting healthy relationships. I bet you guys actually broke up because she beat you at arm wrestling.

  2. That’s a dig at my arms, isn’t it, Brother?

    Oh my God, you are so smart. I’d like to tell you just how smart you are, in person.

    Where can I find you again?
