I’m a big fan of David Firth.  His flash animations are the most genuinely demented things I’ve come across.  It’s delightful!

I’ve taken to calling her kitten. I was messing around with obscuring the flash. This shot had the flash obscured by an opaque object. I liked the look on her face, but the lighting was too low and led to noise in the capture. So I hit it with the sepia and film grain. The pictures are rather large, so I’m hiding them below the jump. (more…)

Planarity

I love puzzle games that really challenge your mind.  Planarity is such a game.  You are presented with several vertices connected by edges.  The vertices are shuffled and many of the edges overlap.  The goal is to move the vertices so that the edges are no longer intersecting.  Simple enough, right?  As you progress in level, the challenge increases.  More and more vertices are added.  After beating level 7, I was too tired to continue, but that has nothing to do with the game.  Too much homework and insomnia.  Anyhow, the game is really awesome and I strongly recommend checking it out for anyone who wants to exercise their brain.

Iraq Casualties

When I hear a number like 3828, it doesn’t sound all that high.  I mean, that’s a fraction of the number of people who died in Vietnam (about 60k, including missing), which was a small fraction of the number who died in World War II (14+ million).  And those are just the American and allied military casualties.  The numbers for the opponents and civilian casualties dwarf those.  But 3828 is a big number.  Each one a person with a family, many with children, most of them with living mothers who will mourn them.  Each one had a life at home, dreams.

Obleek.com has a very nice flash animation that helps bring this home by animating the coalition deaths as they occurred by day from the start of the Iraq War until 13 February 2007.  Data used to create the animation was taken from icasualties.org.  Worth a look and a thought, perhaps.
