But there is a soundtrack and artwork.

This is just a day of absolutely cool shit....

Oh, and you can download it off their website.

There's also an interview with the artist about the work on Boing Boing that gets into a bit about music that has influenced work in other mediums.

Amazing how something so funny and annoying can be remixed into something so brilliant. This was the catch phrase that refused to die in college.

Isn't it now a challenge?

Cory Doctorow's sequel to his really cool YA novel Little Brother is out. The Department of Homeland Security is watching you! And your XBOX is only few hacks away from taking on government lies.

He releases his novels on a Creative Commons license, and makes them available for download on his website. Of course, you can also get them through Amazon, and you should...but even authors understand being broke.

Here's a cool little short film with some creepy, creepy implications. But who is watching? An anonymous pilot or the AI using the drone?

CoverGot to check out this Jamendo band. Its like Godspeed You Black Emperor went indie, or Explosions in the Sky did a secret album, or even if Sigor Ros forget to invite Jonsi to their sessions and sounded like they did for Von.

Wasn't it though? Dangerous Minds points out just how heavily influenced Lucas was by Akira Kurosawa.

I should make watching some of his films this year a goal. Hell the influences are everywhere even in the TF world. Wasn't the Wheeljack/Soundwave face off in Prime done in that style?

Best use of "The Lorax" you're going to find. Someone took a high powered projector and blasted it out onto the blizzard. Frankly, it came out   quite pretty and calming.

This is is just really cool in explaining Orwell's views on Totalitarianism, and the rise of "Managerial" states. It also outlines his views on limited Socialism. 



"A decade of political chaos shaped George Orwell's vision of a totalitarian future, writes David Aaronovitch.

I was brought up in a house full of books, none of them by George Orwell.

Simone de Beauvoir was there, as was Sartre and Aldous Huxley and even Lenin. The last is actually a clue as to the absence of the first.

My parents were Communists. To them Orwell was on the other side of politics - someone whose principal writings were hostile to them and what they wanted to achieve.

This suspicious animosity had lasted beyond the death of Orwell and the demise of Stalin, and into the period when British Communists, by and large, now held the same view of the Soviet Union under Uncle Joe that Orwell had held and that had motivated him to write both Animal Farm and Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Their problem was, I now think, made acute by the way in which these two great books - and Nineteen Eighty-Four in particular - had become major weapons in the ideological war between left and right."

I remember when shopping at night meant you could avoid the herfs of sheeple and unwashed masses.

 

I miss those nights.

Anyone missing? Anyone raptured? Did Yellowstone blow? Is there a new crater somewhere that wasn't there yesterday?

We just have the left overs of a picturesque snow fall.

I know its been making the rounds, but I felt like sharing.
