AC/DC released their new album recently. The album title? Yeah, I'm not fan of it. The music? Unmistakeable. Have a good weekend everybody. Can we start it with a nap? I need a nap.

Video From Last Night

Here's the embedded recordings we did last night. We had a ton of fun doing these. If you've been away from the show for a while, these are good episodes to get back in with. If you're thinking about sharing this with a friend, I think these are a good way to introduce us. Thanks again for all your support in making 2014 our best year yet. We got bigger plans for 2015. Take care of yourselves and the show will be back in January.

Live Show Tonight

We are in preparations now for what will likely be our final show of 2014. Tune in and say hi via our Ustream, embedded below for your convenience! I'm so thoughtful.

Broadcast live streaming video on Ustream


Live show this Sunday, December 14th. We're likely getting started around 730-8pm Central time.

This cover was brought to my attention by Melissa. It's a really cool, haunting, modern take on a classic.

And for reference, here's the version I was familiar with. If you haven't seen the film "O Brother, Where Art Thou?", allow me to formally vouch for it. Some of the best "old timey" music you'll ever hear. This version of "O Death" gives me chills.

Abstract Tech Ideas Visualized

Fans of the podcast probably know of my jealousy for Ben's artistic eye. His webcomic is my favorite, I have no bones about saying that. This is not about his work, though. This is about another graphic designer conceptualizing a way to look at data. I'm a total nerd for this stuff. (via WIRED)

High Resolution Earth

Time lapses like this seem to present the idea that our Earth itself is a living, breathing thing. If you have 4k resolution, this video will run in that. 1080p and fullscreen is an absolute must. Happy Monday, y'all.


Our last live show of the year will likely be on December 14th. I may be able to pull out another show late-month, but that is looking more unlikely than likely. Regardless, you should tune in. We're hoping to have a full crew on set, but either way, it should be a fun time.

In the meantime, let's go into the weekend with Rob Cantor's "Shia LaBeouf". It's pleasantly odd enough. Thanks to Melissa for letting me know this exists.

Laser Watch

It's a watch that shoots lasers. Lasers. Out of a watch. This beats your smart watch. This beats your regular watch. Watch watch watch. (via engadget)

Birds Of Prey In High Res And 60fps

Since I'll likely never get this close to these predators, I'm thankful for people like Jacob and Katie Schwarz for taking video like this. I'm not going to dress it up for anything other than it is: It's very cool pictures of birds that aren't in flight.

New Chernobyl Footage

Beautifully haunting imagery from the accident. I'm a sucker for this. If you fancy finding the location on Google Maps, here's a direct link.
