CGI footage of people falling and not getting up makes me laugh so hard

I must be a horrible person because I howled so hard when I saw this CGI footage by Dave Fothergill that shows computer generated people falling down over and over again as they get swept around by a swinging metal fence.

The Big Lebowski painted after classic art works

I love Joe Forkan's The Lebowski Cycle, a series of oil paintings that uses frames of The Big Lebowski to reference artwork by classic painters like Caravaggio, Velázquez or David.

Swimming in an iceberg is like being inside the Fortress of Solitude

Swimming inside an iceberg looks amazing because the ice looks like glass and that's crazy, and because it kind of resembles an underwater version of Superman's Fortress of Solitude.

No One's Buying iPads Because iPads Are Forever

Today, Apple trotted out its quarterly earnings, as public companies will do. Massive revenue! iPhone sales up! Mac sales up! iPad sales… well. Okay, so not everything was a hit.
