Marco Brambilla (director of Demolition Man), brings the world this piece:
Civilization, a video mural created for the new Standard hotel in New York City, depicts a journey from hell to heaven interpreted through modern film language using computer-enhanced found footage. This epic video mural contains over 300 individual channels of looped video blended into a multi-layered seamless tableau of interconnecting images that illustrate a contemporary, satirical take on the concepts of Heaven and Hell.
I think it’s rad and trippy as all heck (watch for the Stay-Puft Marshmellow man cameo, Joey!)Read More
Dammit, if I can’t get Hall and Oates out of my head, neither will you. (Just stick around till 1:40)Read More
Man this so uses that idea I had when I was twelve that I called the “Theory of Infinite Possibilities”. I really need to write a full post on that someday…but I’m sure it’s already been a fully developed theory by some other mad scientist genius at this point.
Update: Go here if you feel like trying this out (Java required)Read More

Horribly underrated (yet loved by a majority here @ JTB) Wii game Excitetruck is getting a sequel on April 20th!
From Nintendo Power (via Ars):
Unlike its predecessor Excite Truck, which featured normal trucks to race, Excitebots will see players riding in vehicles modeled after insects and animals. This includes robotic racer versions of turtles, frogs, ladybugs, grasshoppers, and more. You can even collect power-ups that will allow you to run around on two/four legs.
Aside from the new look, it appears that the game will play much like Excite Truck. Tilts controls will make a return, as will ground deformation. Once again, whether or not you win a competition will depend on a combination of the tricks you pull off and where you finish in the actual race.
And now… a video!
Hopefully they’ll have the option to play the game without the Wii-Wheel, as I’m personally not the biggest fan of useless pseudo-peripherals.Read More
Pretty sure that’s a previous generation MacBook Pro/Powerbook too.Read More

I meant to post this last night. It’s relevant to the current discussions going on here about the state of food production/agriculture today. I’m at work now so I really can’t go too into detail about the movie, but I highly recommend it to anyone who has read The Omnivore’s Dilemma (more as a supplementary piece).Read More
