The future is coming.

the fursonas are coming

the two are not mutually exclusive

Fallout’s talking heads. Every game. Lip-synched dialogue.

They already do that with mocap. Like in LA Noire. Now they just don’t need face rigs, because the software is FaceRig.

:O

EVERY TIME SOMEONE BRINGS UP THE LIBRARY OF ALEXANDRIA I GET SO ANGRY.

but why

Because it got burned. All of that knowledge, lost forever.



The library was destroyed over 1000’s of years ago. The library consisted of thousands of scrolls and books about mathematics, engineering, physiology, geography, blueprints, medicine, plays, & important scriptures. Thinkers from all over the Mediterranean used to come to Alexandria to study.Most of the major work of civilization up until that point was lost. If the library still survived till this day, society may have been more advanced and we would sure know more about the ancient world.

***INSANELY PAINFUL SHRIEKING***


What they’ll be saying in 1000 years:"Remember when the internet burned down…"

Australian spring has hit
Montana, where leaves
paint trees in the colors
of the backdrop
and the people falling
into love with love
wonder at how quickly the rain
unmelted this year, you see
the sky was white today
with its greying
and black with birds
flying to where they’d fly
from for home

Link 13 Sep 28 notes Literature on Lockdown: Vision of a Tree, by Eric Boyd»

ericboydblog:

For everyone that’s asked me exactly why I went to jail, here it is. Perhaps a long time coming, and not completely shocking (I’ve included this subject in several stories), but it’s still the first time I’ve ever put this down in an essay. This is about making a hard choice—maybe the wrong choice—while trying to do the right thing.


This is pretty painful shit for me, and it wasn’t easy to write, but I figured it was for the best. With the Prison Noir book I’ve been doing more interviews and people are beginning to ask questions too personal for my liking; I thought it’d be good to just beat everyone to the punch and let it all out. At any rate, this piece, written for the Missouri Review (I did another essay for them which you can read here) was originally the first draft to an essay I wrote for Akashic Books, but eventually reworked, entirely, into the essay “Swimming Lessons”. 

I hope everyone finds something useful in this piece. Thank you.

Photo 12 Sep 13 notes wordswritteninsilence:

The Prime  Minister of Australia has addressed the Nation and Australia gets moved to a “high alert” for terrorist threats.

*Image obtained from SMH: 12/09/2014

In one breath Tony Abbott says that a terrorist attack is “likely”, but also that ASIO has detected “no specific threats”.If in attack is “likely” without specific evidence to justify the claim, then that is just blatant fear-mongering at best, or incompetence at worst.Judging from Abbott’s performance so far, I’m leaning towards incompetence. Maybe that says more about my view of the world than anything else. I’d sooner believe that my Prime Minister has all of the intelligence of half a brick in a puddle, than believe that ‘terrists’ are gonna explode the NRL grand final.
