for those of you who like photoshop and zombies, here’s a fun tutorial on how to go from this: to this in photoshop: [via digg]

atheists on the offensive

this story out of italy is great: [Luigi] Cascioli says that for 2,000 years the Roman Catholic Church has been deceiving people by furthering the fable that Christ existed, and says the church has been gaining financially by “impersonating” as Christ someone by the name of John of Gamala, the son of Judas from Gamala.

a young chuck norris

holy crap, there really is hope for SNL. go see this new “snl digital short” a tribute to the young chuck norris. christina thinks chris parnell plays the 80′s hair band lead singer, which if indeed true, makes parnell ginormously talented. andy samberg again seems to be in on the action; if you’ve been living […]

this nytimes article is stunning. the author recounts: One morning when he was 15, Takeshi shut the door to his bedroom, and for the next four years he did not come out. He didn’t go to school. He didn’t have a job. He didn’t have friends. Month after month, he spent 23 hours a day […]

boston commons

wow, this is hard to believe; i’d think it a prank if it didn’t come from CBS. apparently: The Vatican newspaper has published an article saying “intelligent design” is not science and that teaching it alongside evolutionary theory in school classrooms only creates confusion. go see for yourself here. hopefully, the majority of americans who […]

boston weather blows

gee – i’d been reading about how bad the windstorms were back home in new york but i figured the problems were localized to nyc. silly me, i have to keep relearning the same lesson: boston weather always sucks more. it hit me, literally, on the bike ride home tonight. as i rounded the kendall […]

iap and digital SLRs

i am really enjoying mit. as long as you’re not an undergrad here (they appear to just get pummeled incessantly) mit is a fun, and dare i say – laid back place. right, i am never going to eat those words. in any case, what’s inspired my demeanor has been IAP: mit’s “independent activities period.” […]

sublime flash
