Pump Six and Other Stories, by Paolo Bacigalupi

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 15:46:08 +0000

(Amazon link) A collection of brain-melting short sci-fi stories from a polluted and impoverished future that is a lot less depressing than I just made it sound. This has been out since 2010 but I recently re-read the whole thing. RIYL Ted Chiang, et al.



Mare Internum (a webcomic)

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 15:29:58 +0000

Adventures beneath the surface of Mars, by Der-shing Helmer, author of The Meek, another webcomic I haven’t started in on yet. Helmer’s biology background makes for some interesting Martian fauna. Backed by me on Patreon.

Fri, 17 Mar 2017 14:56:13 +0000

A post-mortem on the PewDiePie fiasco. The always-on, always-producing YouTuber culture sounds exhausting.

A lightweight Unix CLI for automating tasks. Intended primarily for test automation but probably a useful replacement for the Linux-exclusive inotifywait. (Via)



HTML5 Up

Tons of free and paid HTML 5 templates to use and dissect.



Disabling auto-playing video on OS X

Useful. (via)



Hinges (a webcomic)

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 14:47:12 +0000

Meredith McClaren’s charming adventure story about a city of clockwork people concluded in February. (I burned through it in one sitting.)



New video for Explone, “King Of The Mist”

Mon, 13 Mar 2017 21:57:10 +0000

Speaking of video compositing, I never posted the latest video I did with Explone, for our song “King of the Mist” from Suicide Fences. I used some of the same techniques (simplified, since I’m very much a novice) to place us in a spooky forest, conjuring spirits with our music by firelight. Come walk into … Continue reading New video for Explone, “King Of The Mist”

How to implement scrollytelling with six different libraries

Fri, 10 Mar 2017 15:32:28 +0000

Two things: 1) “Scrollytelling?” Really? 2) the library I used to create the motion-comic effects in Red Moon is called Skrollr and is no longer being maintained, so these are some cool-looking alternatives. I’d love to build a motion-comic toolkit on top of one of these. I’d love to do a lot of things.

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 14:24:24 +0000

Embedded in this short overview of the influence of the original King Kong is this amazing clip detailing some of the effects that Willis O’Brien had to invent to bring Skull Island to life. The clip where O’Brien combines dioramas, matte paintings, rear-screen projections, real-time smoke, water effects and stop motion into one shot is … Continue reading How ‘King Kong’ Movies Changed VFX History, Over and Over Again



In Defense of the Most Worthless, Helpless Creature on the Planet

Wed, 08 Mar 2017 14:10:00 +0000

A funny treatise on the ocean sunfish, one of nature’s weirder experiments. I laughed.



Flatris, web-based Tetris clone written in React and Redux

Tue, 07 Mar 2017 22:51:18 +0000

And it displays the game’s current Redux state as a JSON blob. Cool!
