in the age of pervasive media, it’s amazing how non-transparent our government can still be.

pixar at moma

MoMa is doing a retrospective of Pixar’s last 20 years of work right now. I think the show runs until mid february (info here). I can’t wait to see this – I get the impression that the computer technology over at Pixar is good enough to nearly reproduce reality and yet, the animators always take […]


i’ve decided to delay studying for biochemistry by playing with this really really nifty screensaver. the screensaver starts off with a random set of blocks and rules for how they are connected and can move. it then simulates movement for a couple of seconds and records how far the assembly traveled. things that show good […]

american edit

awesomely huge jellyfish

fleeing massachusetts

sweet, maybe this will make our rent start going down.

q-unit: what 50-cent woulda turned out like had he been born 2 decades earlier. nonetheless, these songs definitely need to be checked out. i took a quick listen and while they’re not as polished as the grey album‘s, the q-unit songs are still pretty cool.
