so huh...
"Rhythm and Hues has filed for Chapter 11 and most of us have been laid off," a Boing Boing reader wrote in an email Monday. "The visual effects industry woke up Monday morning to news it had been dreading," Variety reported later that day. "One of its most admired companies, Rhythm & Hues, had been forced into bankruptcy." R&H's "Life of Pi" (2012) just won four Visual Effects Society Awards, including the equivalent of Best Picture; as well as...

Khan Academy has a short series of videos featuring LeBron James asking science and statistics questions, with his "good friend Sal" answering them. They cover stuff like the odds of LeBron making three free throws versus one three pointer and what muscles you use when you shoot a basket. They're an engaging introduction to Khan Academy's videos.

Science fiction writers Jim C Hines and John Scalzi donned sexy garters, high heels, little black dresses and, um, crossbows, and replicated the odd cover of Vicki Pettersson's "The Taste of the Night," competing to see who could was most credible as a sexy female assassin book-cover illustration lady. They were raising money for The Aicardi Syndrome Foundation, a very good cause indeed. Also, Scalzi wore a wig. Be sure and click the link below ...

Ha!
Analogies are tricky things. One minute, you're trying to find a clever and memorable way to illustrate molecular bonding of hydrocarbons ... the next you're suddenly Napoleon Dynamite and all your zoologist friends are yelling at you. This image, apparently taken from a real textbook, is part of an excellent Tumblr blog of textbook fails called "Thanks, Textbooks". You should check it out.

John Lehmann, a photojournalist with the Globe and Mail is travelling through China and documenting his experiences on Tumblr. An article in the Globe highlights some of the best posts so far, including this: "A hotdog encrusted shrimp tempura pizza with mayonnaise" from a Pizza Hut. (Thanks, Fipi Lele!)

Last night I finally got to see one of Evil Miss Cakehead's edible horror installations in person. The Helpers is a grotesque, edible pop-up shop in Bethnal Green Road near Brick Lane, which opened last night. It features dismembered bodies, murder weapons, cigarette butts, car batteries with wires, blood-spattered knives, bags of vomit, Chinese takeout meals, and even a television -- all made of cake, all edible, and all delicious. There really ...

Because everyone needs some more Nightmare!
(Video link) In case you're still wistful for some spooky Halloween-type stuff, but are secretly excited for the winter holidays, here is the great Christopher Lee, narrating the poem "The Nightmare Before Christmas" by Tim Burton. Burton wrote his poem in 1982 while working as an animator for Disney (the same year he made his short, Vincent), then later turned into one of the best stop-motion movies ever. 'Tis the season, whichever season you pr...

Hmmm....this is interesting....
Here is a free/open upper secondary mathematics textbook written in a single day by a group of Finnish math teachers, working together in a "booksprint." Related news: California's passed a bill establishing 50 "open source" (CC-BY) textbooks for core lower-division college courses (though, as a poster on Slashdot notes, this still has to be funded in the California budget, which is a place where many good ideas go to die).

Like ...no way. Way! air guitar
From Vulture:Strange things are afoot at the Circle K, dudes: Vulture hears exclusively that a long-thought-impossible third Bill & Ted film is coalescing -- and yes, both Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are attached to star. Original Bill & Ted creators Ed Solomon and Chris Matheson have also attached Dean Parisot (Galaxy Quest) to direct their script. Unlike so many recent studio remakes, which have simply recycled old material for a new generatio...
