The following video is the Sci-Fi movie I want to see get huge in the theaters, the tabletop game I want to play, and the computer RPG I want to obsess over all at once.
The extremely awesome Vox.com has (as usual) a great article...this time about how our saber-toothed friends and there have always been questions about how they...well...how they worked at all.
Imagine a world where the air is hostile to life as we know it and the only way to move out of all but a tiny number of corners of the planet is inside machines and habitats. How about epic wars between increasingly sophisticated high-tech ships? What if the clones of captains and crews are all that’s left after the…
I love monster movies in general, and The Thing has always been one of my favorites. I liked the clever psychological horror, but what really drew me was the Thing itself. The way it could quickly change into all kinds of strange forms just added to the awesomeness. What sort of freaky weird chimera would it be this…
So, I may have been out of things for a while but I didn’t even know ‘reaction videos’ were a thing, except maybe in response to jump scares or the-sensation-that-shall-not-be-visualized.
Meet Encarsia Tricolor Forster. (no relation). As wasps go, she’s actually kind of cute. Maybe not baeus-cute, but cute nonetheless.
I believe I finally have stumbled across my religion, and it is a strange and beautiful thing.
Let’s invent something fun again! But this time, instead of something amazing but complicated like the Wearable Holodeck, we’re going to invent something that a hacker can make on a budget with off the shelf parts.
Whether it’s Thor rebounding from the death of his True Love, Bruce Banner’s sexual identity crisis, or the question of whether Captain America suffered some super shrinkage from that super formula, Age of Ultron is undoubtedly Joss Whedon’s play at Romantic Comedy of the year.
In our Sci-Fi dreams of lovely ideas and technologies we occasionally completely miss something that’s not only plausible but pretty obvious in retrospect.
Neil Armstrong: We’re at the third site. Still no cheese. CAPCOM: Where did the cheese go? Neil Armstrong: The only evidence we have so far is a bunch of rock. CAPCOM: We’ll get our people sciencing around the clock to figure out who moved our cheese!
Holograms had their day in the sun, but it’s time for us to shift our focus. If we had years ago we’d already be chilling out on our patios reading this on our Wearable Holodecks, playing games that make Skyrim look like Pong, exploring nature through camera arrays like Wizard Eye, and enjoying the fact that our…
You other molecular motor fans are with me, right?
Despite their name, cuttlefish aren’t fish. But unlike almost all fish, a cuttlefish can cuddle.
Nope, that’s not an Octokitten!
Have you ever finished watching a show, and left a little...disappointed?
Interstellar was quite the movie, wasn't it? Some of you remember it as an instant movie of the year! Some of you remember it as a really, really bad. (hush, past self!).
I remember the day a tiny part of my childhood died.
UPDATE: The outline page is in place and I should have (at least) that set of options done in less than a month
Matthew Inman of The Oatmeal was on the top of his game (if a bit scratchy) delivering the keynote speech of Zach Weiner's (of SMBC fame) BAHfest as he expertly debunked evolution and introduced us to his personal lord and savior, Jibbers Crabst.
