This is pretty awesome. I need to make a point of pulling it down from YouTube and watching it in reverse.

I wonder how Harvey Pekar will feel about the Smurfs movie.

SLF played around with another little stop-motion project. Poorly lit and poorly edited, this one features some old M.U.S.C.L.E.S. toys I grabbed from Pfeffer. Remember those things?

I don’t spend enough time with the TED Talks, but this one really grabbed me. Here’s Malcolm Gladwell, author of The Tipping Point, talking about learning from diversity via the market research of Howard Moskowitz. It’s a captivating little talk.

This is the game I’ve always wanted. (Tucked away due to autoplaying audio)


Thank you, Exploding Rabbit.

Soviet Sci-Fi Animation in the 1980’s [Apr. 22nd, 2010|12:01 pm]

“In the years leading up to the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, several of its animation studios were releasing experimental short films based off short stories penned by prominent, American science fiction authors. This post assembles some of these futuristic and otherworldly animations.”


I think “Polygon” is a particularly interesting animation style (though “There Will Come Soft Rains” is pretty great too).

Secret Burrito [Apr. 15th, 2010|12:31 pm]

I know my lunch blogging days are behind me for now, but I've just gotta tell you about this burrito I had last week. Every Friday at work here we usually hit up El Triumfo over on East Berkley, an establishment I find most charming for the fact that it's a Mexican place run by Hungarians. But aside from that, they make a damn fine burrito.

It's generally the sort of stuff you'd expect- chicken, steak, pork, veggies, and so on. However, it appears that there are a few gems that don't make an appearance on the regular menu, most notably the falafel burrito. It's exactly what you might expect- your standard Mexican burrito, but without the usual meat or veggies, it's falafel instead. And naturally that might seem like the sort of thing that could go either way, but I'm here to assure you that it's totally awesome. While the spices in a falafel might not seem like a natural pairing for salsa and guacamole, it's a surprisingly complimentary difference of flavors.

I have no idea what other surprises might lie in wait off the menu there, but I highly recommend you at least try this one. Rumor is that it might be the sort of thing to call ahead for unless you want to wait around for them to fry up the falafels, but I imagine it'd be worth the wait anyway.

My buddy and former colleague Ivan's just re-upped his reel and resum online if any of you folks out there are either looking for a 3D artist yourself or know someone who might be. Take a look and pass it on!
