…Claytorial wants to help you understand?

Claytorial

Claytorial is the claymation version of Common Craft, and their goal is to “help people understand complicated things”.

Their first demo is for a magazine called More2Girls, and it shows off what they’ve got in store, though I can’t wait to see what they can with a concept like the Google spider, which is currently in their upcoming section.

For now though, it’s a great start, and a good look at an area that I think we’ll see a lot of in the coming year. (Explanations for complex technologies and services in simple and easy to understand ways.)

…Line Rider Transcendental is rediculous?

There’s a point at which you should look in a mirror and say to yourself “You know, Self, you’ve probably spent too much time in front of the computer lately building that Line Rider run”.

Unfortunately for this creator (though fortunately for us) he didn’t listen to that voice, because TechDawg used over 126,000 lines to create this run, called Transcendental, that goes on for over two minutes!

Prepare to be amazed:

…It’s Things Thursday: Chuck Palahniuk’s Snuff?

Chuck Palahniuk’s SnuffChuck Palahniuk is definitely my favorite author, so when I read the summary of his upcoming book, Snuff, I immediately hit the pre-order button:

    Cassie Wright, porn priestess, intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication. On camera. With six hundred men. SNUFF unfolds from the perspectives of Mr. 72, Mr. 137, and Mr. 600, who await their turn on camera in a very crowded green room. This wild, lethally funny, and thoroughly researched novel brings the huge yet underacknowledged presence of pornography in contemporary life into the realm of literary fiction at last. Who else but Chuck Palahniuk would dare do such a thing? Who else could do it so well, so unflinchingly, and with such an incendiary (you might say) climax?

Sounds like another bestseller to me.
