This Is How You Make Art from Microscopic Forms

The arrangement of diatoms into tiny works of art goes back to the Victorian era, but Klaus Kemp has made that old form into a more complex modern one. And now Matthew Killip has made a short film with Kemp showing how he does it.

Let’s Play a Sci-Fi Trope Drinking Game with EKU’s Football Intro Video

This is it. This is every now-ubiquitous sci-fi thriller trope, presented to us in the form of Eastern Kentucky's football team intro video. It's less than a minute and a half long, but it's a great way to get drunk quickly.

Just read Ilium, should I read Olympus too?

Spoiler: cliffhangers don't bother me so much and I actually prefer a good cliffhanger to a bad ending. In fact, I didn't end up reading any of the sequels to Hyperion because I heard they weren't as good and I actually thought that the cliffhanger was a fun ending.

In what order should I read the Culture series?

Have some spare time coming up and figured I'd give it a shot. Should I read in order of publishing? In-universe chronology? Some other order? Anything that could be skipped?

Rejoice! The Deadpool Movie is Coming in 2016

Rejoice! The Deadpool Movie is Coming in 2016

You did it! Well, at least, Ryan Reynolds thinks you did it. Because the fan campaign, in whatever form it took, is what he believes moved this forward. Whatever it was, Fox has given Deadpool a February 12, 2016 release date. Who screams "Valentine's Day" more than Deadpool?

The Sexy/Crazy Eating-Sashimi-With-Prehensile-Hair Scene From 47 Ronin

47 Ronin had a lot of problems... but it also had Rinko Kikuchi as a sexy witch who uses her prehensile hair to eat sashimi, as she apparently tries to seduce the captive Mika (Ko Shibasaki). There is nothing sexier than hair-chopsticks and raw fish. NOTHING. And we've got one more scene below.

The Accidental Time Machine

I just came upon this sub from an insomnia-fueled /random binge, and there were more than a few Haldeman references on here, which reminded me of my second-favorite book of his; The Accidental Time Machine. I was wondering if there were any other books out there that have the same kind of 'stranger in a strange land' feeling to them that this does. I'm not much of a reader of scifi normally, so don't assume I've read much of what you might suggest and leave stuff out. Thanks much!

Does anyone know if Slingers was ever developed beyond its early concept?

Here's the amazing Sizzle reel - I would pay to see a show like this, it looks like a lot of fun.

Here's an old reddit thread: Oceans Eleven in space? Firefly meets Snatch? Whatever you call it, I want to see this made into a series!

Seems like the kind of show that could be perfect for Netflix to pick up, which wouldn't have been an option four years ago.

What font would you suggest I use in my book for the HUD read out header for a captain’s log sort of journal entry?

I'm writing a story that takes place a little over three hundred years in the future. The main character is keeping a journal that is interposed over the main story. He's from the past and he's thrust in to this startling future where external tech and internal tech are symbiotic.

In the story I've written so far, I use Times New Roman in italics for the journal entries and I use the Times New Roman for the main story and dialogue. But, I wanted to use a time and date and author header for each journal entry. I just thought it should be a different font like Arial or something different than the default font.

What do you think Reddit?

The Followup To Enthiran Is A Whole New Level Of Bollywood Insanity

You would expect the director of Enthiran, the logic-defying Bollywood robot movie, to go to some pretty extreme lengths to top himself. What you would not expect is pretty much all of the insanity in this new trailer for I, the new movie from Enthiran director Shankar. Including a female motorcycle, a barbell lady, and much more!

Camera Traps Capture "Fantastically Bizarre" Animal Hitchhiking

Earlier this month, conservationists working in South Africa's Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park were very suprised when they reviewed photos snapped by their camera trap. Images revealed a mongoose-like genet hitch-hiking on the backs of at least two different species of animals — behavior never seen in the mammal.

How Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes Went From Concept Art To Screen

How Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes Went From Concept Art To Screen

While we do love concept art that gives us an alternate universe version of movies, it's incredibly fascinating to see how final, approved concept art translates from a simple illustration to a scene on film. Compare these gorgeous Dawn of the Planet of the Apes concept pieces to images from the movie itself.
