I'm going to make another pass at the mushroom explosion. Minimally the 
spheres should rotate when expanding.  I also want to extend where the 
kid is laying down watching the shroom fly by, before passing out.

I don't like the "matrix" effect where the explosion pauses and the 
camera swirls around it. Maybe the delay before and after the camera 
swirls are hurting the effect.

I like that the girl is vacuuming on the TV while the mush damage is 
erased.  It's a cool effect, but goes by too quickly and is not the 
focus of the scene while it's happening.

One feature of the video, while in the haus, looking out the front of 
the haus, we are in the room with the train tracks with the haus scaled 
1/23 and rotated in the room. When looking out the back of the haus, it 
is just the haus on a checkered plane, scaled 1/1 at the origin.  The 
scene with the mush damage takes 10 minutes to render looking up at the 
ceiling [1]. When I put the haus back in the room, I quit trying after 
no frames rendered in 6 hours. There must be something in in-haus 
lighting that just kills it.  So after the TV, the front of the haus 
looks out at the field.  I don't like it, but, ugh.  I'm still debating 
if it's a bug or artistic license.

[1] looking out the bay window through the mush damage: win/i7 = 55 
minutes, linux/i5 = 3h, linux/celeron = 13h!
