A truly prescient clip from Dr. King, 1964.
Boston.com does such a phenomenal job putting these photographs together.
South Park Studios:
On Wednesday March 11, 2009 at 10 pm EST South Park goes HD. We are really excited because, not only will the season premiere be in HD, but we have been working hard for over a year re-rendering previous seasons in native HD. We are not up-converting the episodes, but actually going into each episode and re-rendering every shot and frame at true HD.
South Park hasn't been made with actual construction paper for years. The studio uses a sophisticated rendering farm with tools like Maya and Motion (made on Macs, of course). And recent seasons have been far more visually stunning. The jump to HD is great news and will make the show look even better.
Ironically tragic or tragically ironic? You decide. Either way, it's not as funny as it was 8 years ago.
For all of us stuck at the office tomorrow (or really, anywhere that isn't D.C.).
Your standard Tetris game, with one twist (because you can't have a Tetris game these days without a twist): the game looks at itself and figures out the piece that is least helpful to you, and then gives you that piece. Awesome.
If you're one of those "no really, I rock at Tetris" people, give it a shot.
"Whateva! I'll do what I want!"
Woot goes to CES, makes fun of everyone. Hilarious.
Definitely one of my favorite movies of all time.
I'm probably going to try tackling Haskell this year as my new learning project, and there's quite a bit of useful information in there.
