If ever anything deserved a "WTF", this is it:

Sorry if this disturbs you to your core, it has to be shared...



Seriously.

This breaks my heart in so many ways that I'm having trouble deciphering what it is exactly that gets me.. And then I'm laughing... But laughing in that nervous way that subjects in the Milgram Experiment laughed... I'm not sure why. Or if it is appropriate. It feels inappropriate. It feels WRONG. And then the terrible rendition of the already-terrible Aerosmith song from the terrible movie Armageddon tugging desperately at your heart strings...

Oh my. I think this is life-changing.



Help!

Must... take... epic nap.







What color scheme should I use when I color it?
Tell me what you think.

cookieface & triangle

I'm thinking of whipping together a bunch of drawings like these

so I can actually have a zine for this year's Expozine, coming up Nov 29 and 30 in Montreal.

Not sure though. Is it just because I have some kind of evil sickness that kept me up all night that I like these?

This poster was by far the most popular at this year's Puces Pop, the annual craft fair that happens during the Pop Montreal music festival.

A significantly higher quality video can be downloaded, or streamed here. (I recommend watching that rather than the Youtube version)

I made this video yesterday. It is the first time I've ever made a video.

Lesson learned: Thin black lines on a white background, and vice versa, do not show up well on Youtube.

Most of the footage is either from the 3DVCE or Critters software, both use Darwinian evolution to create virtual life forms.

The rest of the footage is either stock, or I stole it.

The mp3 can be downloaded here.

Virtual creature evolution!

Lately I'm obsessed with evolutionary biology, and the mechanisms of evolution in general. My interest got sparked by taking part in the debates on Youtube between creationists/intelligent design proponents and those who accept evolution.

I found this set of videos of creatures that were virtually evolved by Lee Graham, who attends the School of Computer Science, Carleton University in Ottawa.

I was inspired to help him out with his research, and donate some CPU time for evolving virtual creatures. This is the first one that I've evolved:
