Top left corner.
|Ending of Poltergeist|
CG is just getting started. Already the subtle use of it is almost indistinguishable from reality. Full characters and scenes are still obvious but give it another 20 years and that won't be the case. Sadly Jurassic Park is still probably the best example of CG and practical mixing in the past 20 years.
Still it takes a fuck ton more work to make decent CGI than a "render frames" button. It takes just as much creativity, skill and labor as practical effects. The computer doesn't sculpt the models for you.
|Ending of Poltergeist|
Don't worry, only humans think that being dead makes them special.
|Departing Space Station Commander Provides Tour of Orbital Laboratory |
NASA's budget is 0.5% of the federal budget. Education is 3% and military is 25%.
I would say the satellites alone are a good ROI on our space budget. Our degrading education system and the wholesale destruction of the Middle East are a bit less so. Not that I think we should be spending less on education.
|Alan Grayson's first order of business after returning to Congress|
It's only barely a strawman. Their general idea is that if you can't afford insurance you shouldn't have it. It isn't a right, it's a privilege. They think that allowing everyone access to healthcare will lead to long waiting lines and rationing of care. What else can you take from that but they don't want universal healthcare and they think the poor should be the ones rationed to?
Not to mention the fact that this mentality is mirrored in their followers, who you might recall from the primary debates, cheered the idea of letting a man die who didn't have health insurance and got cancer.
Also that stunt was back in 2009 when he was already elected, and he lost his 2010 race, so no it wasn't good for getting elected.
Either way I'm glad to see him back as well. We need more Democrats with spines and balls and ovaries.
|Tom Brier Improvises Over 'Nyan Cat' Theme|
Thanks for introducing me to Tom Brier and giving me another reason to hate POEtv's laziest troll.
|Overkill design: Todd McFarlane and Rob Liefeld at work|
Holy shit my Spawn obsessed friend totally had that toy. I'm not surprised he was a character that was created in 20 minutes.
|Birth of the Colbert Report.|
He sucks at interviewing, I agree. Most guests can't handle the sarcasm and are often not sure if they should be answering seriously or joking back, and if they're not funny the joking back rarely works.
But personally I find everything else on his show a lot funnier and well written than the Daily Show. I think the Daily Show is great still but they lost something when they lost Colbert.
|Ohio Romney Rally - Interviews with Supporters|
It took me a couple hours to realize I meant to have a point.
If you look at the ignorant people in Obama's crowd they're usually the people that don't watch the news.
If you look at the ignorant people in Romney's rallies they're the people who listen to the news more than anyone.
|The New Normal|
Unemployment was around 7.8% when Bush left office. Then it proceeded to drop and drop and drop to around 10% in his first few months as our economy continued to tank from the financial collapse. Obama's policies have given us higher growth than during Bush's years to get unemployment back to where it was when he took office.
If you just say it was at 8% then and it's still there now, it sounds like he's done absolutely nothing in 4 years. And that's exactly the point.
|Ohio Romney Rally - Interviews with Supporters|
Yeah, those are the low info voters, they are on both sides and make up the majority of the electorate.
However I think if you listen to AM radio and Fox News enough you hear where these talking points these people have are coming from and see a concerted effort to have as many low info voters as possible. If you watch MSNBC and NPR you'll find a lot less obfuscation and a lot more depth into actual policies of the candidates, and even criticism of their team (though I think NPR is only barely and subtly left leaning).
You listen to Romney and hear him say things like "Jeep, owned by the Italians, is planning to move all production to China". You won't find Obama or his surrogates being that deliberately dishonest. They will downplay failures and generalize plans for the future, but I'm fairly confident, based on lots of polling data, that the left has more informed voters than the right.
|Freedom Tower whisltling before Hurricane Sandy hits|
Turn up your volume.
|Con Ed Station at FDR and E 14th explodes during hurricane Sandy|
For some reason the transformer station down the block had two huge arc explosions Sunday night, but the storm didn't even reach Pittsburgh till today. And when it got here it was lighter than when it was hovering over Philly.
Such a strange storm, but I'm glad we're the lucky ones.
|Empire Strikes Back Uncut - Scene 84 - Vader Hatches|
Usually works fine for me. Youtube probably has the most solid player on the net right now, but Vimeo is far from the bottom. Take a moment to remember Real Player and it all seems wonderful by comparison.
|South Park Parodies Honey Boo Boo|
I hate libertarians, but these are the funniest libertarians in the country.
|Meet the Hexaflexagon. |
Obviously that's her coke nail.
But really this girl has gotten 3 million views in 7 days on a video about geometry. I think that's a good thing.
|Mitt Romney debates himself |
If only there were some sort of a mandate to make sure people bought insurance when they were well, and didn't wait till they got sick to buy it.
Or hell we could even just have everyone pay for healthcare through taxes, so we knew for sure everyone was pitching in their whole lives. Nah, that sounds like tyranny.
|Rep. Paul Broun (R-GA) talks about God|
I like how one of the favorite anti-Islamist talking points these days is that Islam shouldn't get religious protection because it's not just a religion it's a set of laws that tell people how to run society. I'm confused as to how that's different than the above.
|Slow motion video of Romney cheating in debates. |
Yeah, when I first saw it I didn't think it was that unbelievable he'd have the gall to cheat, and had no idea why he'd be whipping out a handkerchief onto the podium, but apparently that's what he was doing.
Though if "tangible things" is really one of the rules he did break it, you're right. But still it's a distraction from all the other myriad horrible things about Romney we should be drilling into our friends and family's heads.

Well how else are you supposed to land from your badass jump?
