Trashtalk theater, a performative system by digital artist Jason Ponce, allows moviegoers and presentation patrons to text multiple comments in realtime which are overlayed onto the visuals, often to hilarious effect. A voting option in the software also allows the audience to control the presentation and ‘rewind’ to favorite spots.

Divine Dwellings : The Minimalist

Tiny Apartment Packs 8 Rooms Within 350 SQ FT

Living in New York City isn’t all adventure and dynamism. Unless you are wealthy the way no real person is, you probably have to settle for a living space that is cramped and cluttered. It is the project of Graham Hill, entrepreneur and treehugger.com founder, to come up with an ideal New York apartment—one with a small footprint, both physically and environmentally, and one that offers just as much beauty and functionality as a pad multiple times its size.

Hill’s Life Edited apartment is a constantly evolving space. He is always tinkering and researching, looking to streamline the already spare cube in SoHo to its bare necessities. Still, what exists now seems completely livable with very few compromises. Even for a pack-rat like myself, there is an allure to its simplicity.

When you walk in, you encounter what is, at first glance, a small studio apartment. Within that cube are actually 8 functional spaces. The living room and office become the bedroom with a tug of a bookshelf. Open one of the closets and you’ll find 10 stackable chairs that go around a telescopic dining table for large dinner parties. An entire guest room with bunk-beds and a closet is revealed behind a wall that slides out on tracks. And of course, a well-equipped kitchen and bathroom await.

KickStarter : Rivet Wars

view on kickstarter

A new miniatures RTS inspired boardgame. Walking tanks, crazy artillery and cool characters battle in the trenches!

Rivet Wars is a miniatures boardgame that springs forth from the warped imagination of Ted Terranova – set on a world that never quite left World War I but with crazy technology like walking tanks, diesel powered armor, unicycled vehicles and armor plated cavalry!

Don’t let the cute visuals fool you, it’s a world full of angst, war-torn camaraderie and dark humor.

Unique mechanic

Rivet Wars is at its heart a strategy game, with both players deploying units each round to counter the threats set forth by their opponent and stay one tactical step ahead.

Heavily influenced by Ted’s experience working on RTS games like Rise of Nations, players gather resources (bunkers and capture points) and use these to deploy streams of new units!

There’s an ebb and flow on the tactical landscape and you can stock up surprises for your opponent to be unleashed even as he thinks he’s winning!

Great looking models

Here are some painted shots of the models as well as scale comparisons. Note that the game does not ship with painted figures.


Unique tank upgrades

Each tank has a small turret which can fit character models that will give the tanks buffs or other modifiers. Don’t glue down the hatches!

The World’s Largest Snowball Fight


Last weekend, 5,834 people convened in Seattle for the world’s largest snowball fight.

Set amongst a battlefield of 160,000 tonnes of snow, it doesn’t look like any snowball fight I’ve ever been in. It looks like the beginning of Terminator 2. Only with less skulls.

Reality Check! People Look Stupid!

And Your Probably No Different! Sorry…
We never look up, people are too busy with their phones updating their social profiles, and being more concerned with their internet presence than their physical presence and it is disgusting! I have always hated facebook and almost every form of massive online social media. I enjoyed it when I was young, but I have never been a big online social person since I got my drivers license, and that used to be true of everyone…but what happened!? Take a look at these pictures, and if they remind you of yourself, you should probably focus more on the world in front of you, because those you are with should be much more important to you than those who are online.
