Movies

Mel Blanc on David Letterman
This awesome 1981 video of Mel Blanc (the voice of Looney Tunes) speaks for itself.

Hole Punched
Check out this self portrait using 10 different sized single hole punches on a a1 piece of paper that he just sent over.

Arial versus Helvetica
What it’s wrong to do is criticize Arial as a clone or rip-off of Helvetica. It’s not. If Arial is a rip-off of Helvetica, then Helvetica is a rip-off of Akzidenz Grotesk; or we could simply say that they are both rip-offs of earlier Grotesque faces.

The Grief That Made 'Peanuts' Good
Bill Watterson comments on Peanuts as part of a review for David Michaelis's new biography of Charles Schultz: „The overwhelming commercial success of the strip often overshadows its artistic triumph, but throughout its 50-year run, Charles Schulz wrote and drew every panel himself, making his comic strip an extremely personal record of his thoughts. It was a model of artistic depth and integrity that left a deep impression on me.“

Und so.

Sushi Flashgame

"Seven countries in five years"
While the Bush White House promotes the possibility of armed conflict with Iran, a tantalizing passage in Wesley Clark's new memoir suggests that another war is part of a long-planned Department of Defense strategy that anticipated "regime change" by force in no fewer than seven Mideast states. Critics of the war have often voiced suspicions of such imperial schemes, but this is the first time that a high-ranking former military officer has claimed to know that such plans existed.

We Few, We Happy Few, We Band of Brothers
Evolutionary psychologist Andy Thomson analyzes suicide terrorism from the perspective of evolutionary biology.

Web2.0: The Cult of the Amateur
By undermining mainstream media and intellectual property rights, he says, it is creating a world in which we will “live to see the bulk of our music coming from amateur garage bands, our movies and television from glorified YouTubes, and our news made up of hyperactive celebrity gossip, served up as mere dressing for advertising.” This is what happens, he suggests, “when ignorance meets egoism meets bad taste meets mob rule.”

Vintage Color TV
Color television in the United States has a most interesting history. Several systems were proposed and one, the incompatible CBS field sequential system, was actually in use, for a short time, in 1951 before proving impractical.
The ultimate winner in this contentious race to bring practical color television to the American home was the RCA/NTSC compatible color system. Steve Dichter's Vintage Color TV Page is all about that shakey start and the vain attempt of the industry to market color television, in the mid 1950's, to a viewing public already awash and pretty satisfied with black and white TV.

Robots that are "self-aware": Hod Lipson on TED.com
Engineer Hod Lipson demonstrates and talks about a few of his cool little robots, which have the ability to learn, understand themselves and even self-replicate. At the root of this uncanny demo is a deep inquiry into the nature of how living beings learn and evolve, and how we might harness these processes to make things that learn and evolve.
