Badass Artist Winsor McCay

5 Comments 15 October 2012

Today’s Google Doodle is dedicated to artist Winsor McCay, best known for his comic strip Little Nemo. If you don’t know McCay by name or the Little Nemo strip, you probably know one of his (almost entirely hand-drawn by him) animated pieces, Gertie the Dinosaur from 1914. And if you don’t know that, maybe you remember the Capcom game Little Nemo: Dream Master on the NES. In any event, Winsor McCay wasn’t just stunningly creative, he had the skills to go with it. His line work is gorgeous. He’s one of those artists whose influence you start seeing everyone once you know them. Check out some of his stuff below.

Paul Ryan’s Giant Suit

Comments Off on Paul Ryan’s Giant Suit 12 October 2012

Hey there little turtle, wanna be Vice President when you grow up?

Is this a Republican ploy to identify with people that can’t afford a tailor? Are they courting the Men’s Warehouse vote?

And I love how EVERY politician has to wear an American flag pin on their lapel. Oh you like America? No shit. Ryan’s was twice as big as Biden’s, because he loves America that much more.

Go See Sinister

Comments Off on Go See Sinister 12 October 2012

I got to see a screening of Sinister on Monday (thanks Ian) and it’s the first movie to disturb my sleep since Paranormal Activity. It’s well-paced, well-acted, and has a strong story. I like that the trailer tends to consist mostly of footage from the first half of the movie, which is a welcome change. False-scares are kept to a minimum, and the main character is only partially stupid for not leaving the house right away. If you like horror movies, it’s a must-see.

Guide to Intelligently Discussing the Apple iPhone 5

1 Comment 19 September 2012

I love reading the comments sections of The Verge and Engadget when it comes to the iPhone 5. I’m legitimately curious about how other phones stack up and if I’m making the right choice. Thankfully, these comment sections are full of people with intelligent, well-thought-out arguments in favor of Android devices like the Samsung Galaxy SIII and the HTC One X. It turns out all Android phones come with a small pamphlet that has talking points for discussing your new purchase with people who may enjoy purchasing something else. Here’s a look at it:
