It’s time to pour one out for the little MER rover Spirit.
Simon Page has a way of bringing back all of those sci-fi posters from the 50′s-70′s with a rush, while at the same time breaking new ground in abstract media.
I know that I’ve already done two posts on the upcoming Halo title, but Bungie just released a bunch of concept art for the new game and you know how much of a sucker I am for concept art. Some of these paintings are amazing and tell a story all by themselves, so I thought that I should share them even if it inches us closer to the saturation point for a game that doesn’t come out until the fall.
I’m pretty sure that almost all of you have heard this song by now, as it has definitely made the rounds (even, shudder, on an Outback Steakhouse commercial).
Too often the little things in life go unnoticed. This is odd, since it’s usually the little things that make all the difference.
Yes this video has a robot. Yes, it’s seamlessly integrated into the real world with great affect. But my favorite part of this video is the sense that you get about what Paris is like on a nice summer’s day.

Now that Tesla Motors has secured a loan from Uncle Sam to the tune of 465 Bizillion dollars to put their Model S into production, I’ve decided that I need to save some money for a new car… lots of money to be exact.
The recent viewing of the film Moon has inspired me to go back and take a look at some of the great Science Fiction novels that I’ve read.
Cannondale has a penchant for creating these amazing concept bikes, and the newly realized “Dutchess” is no different.
Check out Matthew Albanese’s photography below. Take a good look…
Here’s a short bike film (32min), showcasing the talents of a bunch of riders in the Southeast as they bomb down rocky trails, float above kickers, or play around at the local bike park.
Having already made up my mind as to which film was my favorite of the year, I present to you a very close second.
As I’ve admitted before, I’m pretty excited about the release of Mass Effect 2.
The recently announced 75th anniversary of the San Francisco MOMA has caused me to reflect on my favorite shows that have swept through the museum.
I listen to many podcasts (probably too many), and there are only a couple that rise above the noisy, conversational format that predominates the genre.
Well, the recession must be over (or will be soon) since BMW has decided to stop putting off the announcement of the newest edition…
To say that the music industry is in a state of flux would be like saying people shouldn’t talk on headsets while in line at the coffee shop, it’s an obvious problem without an obvious solution.

As part of our ongoing interest in the upcoming Halo Reach, I present to you the first in-game screenshots to be leaked to the internets.

OK, I’ll cop to being an espresso snob. What can I say?
Aya Brackett’s work is clean and composed, giving off the feeling of calm and serenity.
I don’t usually watch commercials (thank you TiVo), but I can certainly appreciate good ones…
