    If you've seen Prometheus, this is funny. If you haven't, well, this doesn't really ruin anything.

    Seriously. Elmo's a punk bitch. Let's all watch how a real OG puppet runs his game.

    Two almost-completely-unrelated things:

    Someone took the Dungeons and Dragons animated cartoon and made it sound like actual Dungeons and Dragons. Now I want to do this to everything.


    And here's a set of Game of Thrones political attack ads.

    @OLDHAT! YES! INCLUDING THE FIRE TRUCK ONE? AND THE SCI FI ONE? OH MAN!

    I did read that he'd turned it into an iPad app for kids.

    OK this is NOT remotely creepy....
    TED is a large, wall-based installation consisting of an array of 80 Teddy Ruxpin dolls that speak emotional content gathered from the web via synthetic speech with animated mouths. The speaking of the emotional content is accompanied by one of twenty-four musical vignettes that have been paired to the emotional content being spoken. Each vignette, representing one of twenty-four subtle variants of human emotion, have been composed in such a way that the beginnings and ends of the short pieces will seamlessly dogleg in any possible configuration and stream endlessly as a unified whole. The installation is allowed to drift about freely through the emotional landscape being driven only by those who are contributing content to the piece whether unwittingly or consciously. As such the overall presentation of the piece can vary greatly based on external conditions such as seasons, world events and even time of day. The piece is essentially taking the instantaneous emotional pulse of the internet and this collective pulse, like a human pulse, varies over time

    @Frowardd - having done a tiny bit of work on classification back in the late 90's, its gratifying to see some proper research evidence to suggest that you can learn the exemplars without being instructed that the thing you're looking at has an exemplar in it.

    It's one of those research pieces that can be dressed up as silly and a little pointless, but has actually proven something that's been generally accepted as possible for a long time. There's just something cool about seeing theory become practice.

    I would've made a lousy theoretical physicist, I have to see it working to believe it I think.

    I think my new idea of hell would be stuck in a room without windows in doors, the walls lined with Teddy Ruxpins screaming in unison.

    @renThing and they're all screaming youtube comments?

    Madonna is worried about fans stealing her DNA and has a sterilization team clean her (constantly rebuilt) dressing room. Some might see this as paranoid, but I think she's shrewdly futureproofing her celebrity, to prevent any additional clones from being made.
