This week a Futurama 3D video was uploaded to the Internet, sparking my passion for fandom and unapologetic copyright infringing web media once more. The video was made by Alexy Zakharov, a digital artist and animator based in Moscow. It works as a neat little teaser for a world that could be fleshed out further if Matt Groening and the powers that be weren’t already pondering the possibilities. Bonus points to this video for also using music from Forrest Gump to give it ...

The Awesome Potato Salad Kickstarter

If you haven’t seen the protest advertisement from Greenpeace emphasizing that LEGO should end its partnership with the oil company Shell see it here.

But I am torn when it comes to figuring out if this advertisement works for me or not. Right now it sits on 650,000 views and it definitely has people talking and starting flame wars with one another in the comments, ...

Although we don't have a uniform here on Red Tiki Island, like most people, we like to wear clothes. The Red Tiki King demands a high level of style from his slaves. I've been wanting to design a Red Tiki shirt for a while now and a few days ago I finally put pencil to paper and sketched out a design.
