Thank You Scientist

Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlist is the gift that keeps on giving, and yesterday it introduced me to Thank You Scientist. This seven course dinner of a crossover prog rock band uses strings, saxophones, and brass to fill out their sound.

Kawayoo is a busy artist, and not just in drawing illustrations for art books and Pokémon cards. His electronic music puts me in the mood to write code. I’ve been working on adding a key config menu to Skeleton Hunter, and when it’s finished, I’ll tell you all about it.

It's been too long since this type of post. Pixiv is just a fire hose of cool art. I could start browsing tags and artists and lose my entire afternoon there, so I don't check it like I used to.

Spruce Creek Fly-In Community

Wednesday, October 21st, 2015 at 7:30 pm | Video

It’s 2015; where are our flying cars? In his search for flying cars, James May visited Spruce Creek, Florida. This village treats airplanes like cars, parked in garages and taxied right down the street to the local runway. If every town was this well adapted to small planes, we’d all be flying from place to place, right?

By the way, my Friday night stream has moved to Hitbox! I’m attacking games like Super Back to the Future II, Panorama Cotton, and Sayonara Umihara Kawase, so stop by and chat!

The Duck Army battlecry is slowly spreading all over the Internet. On Twitter, Adam Savage from Mythbusters discovered the screaming Duck Army and quickly weaponized it. I just now found it too, so let’s embed some tweets and see what happens.
