Well, that was quite a surprise.. a TV documentary looking at Second Life, and wasn't fascinated by sex, commerce, or reclusive freaks. Instead, we simply had four people, in-world and in RL, describing facets of the virtual world that appeal to them - the need for company, the ability to make money and fall in love, the artistic and creative possibilities, and the emotional support offered by support groups ("people may be getting good therapy, but they may be getting back to an empty house"). I can happily recommend this to anyone who's not involved in SL, or indeed, even if they are: 3 Minute Wonder - Second Lives.

It's been confirmed! John Simm, star of Life on Mars, will be playing a long-running Doctor Who character. =:D Speaking of which, here's the first trailer for the coming season. ^_^

Bunny for the day. NSFW!
Remember Shaun the Sheep, from A Close Shave? Aardman's produced (are producing?) a spinoff series of six-minute shorts. Here are the first four: Off the Baa!, Bath Time, Shape Up with Shaun, and Timmy in a Tizzy. They're about 19MB each. If you want to try just one to start with, Bath Time's a good example. (Shape Up, rather less so)

Grid Wars (OS X, Windows) may be familiar to some.. so shiny.

This'll tickle a few folks: 30 minutes of 80s cartoon openings (FLV).

Quite a cool commercial inspired by Katamari Damacy over here (FLV). Now wouldn't that be a cool way of getting to work? Of course, you could always just try one of these balls. I must try that. Yes. =:D
Is it just me, or are artists seeming to get better when it comes to drawing really attractive pawpads?

I must bear that in mind when designing my future genome.

Do let me know when you get around to that, by the way - I'd be happy to help you sneak into the biochemistry labs here at school so long as you'd be willing to share the results ;P
Well, Ken Sample's always had a particular way with them - his love is for the big cats, so he's had plenty of experience with hefty and adorable paws. ^_^ So tempting to try cropping that for Hyzenthlay's 16:10 display, but I doubt I could really do the picture justice that way. Perhaps I can ask if said bun would like to make another appearance in some future work, maybe more horizontally inclined. =:)

Hmmm. Maybe we need to collaborate with terminotaur - he's quite knowledgeable in matters biochemical and genetic. And on the mathematical side, we've got merik and austin_dern..

Ah, to feel a summer's breeze ruffling through one's lush lapine fur.. almost a meditative thought by itself.
