The epic fantasy television series Game of Thrones is reimagined as if it were produced in the 1990s in this remix video by YouTuber hunterIsanders.

This is the greatest.

At first glance, these objects may look like planets, but they are actually photos of the bottoms of frying pans.

The bottoms of frying pans, folks.

TED Talk: Amanda Palmer, on the art of asking

Amanda Palmer gave a TED Talk about, in part, her recent album, which was funded entirely through crowdsourcing on Kickstarter. It’s an excellent talk on the relationship between artists and their fans, and on the dialogue about the ethics of piracy and major labels. In conclusion: watch it, it’s great.

In February living stood still.
The birds flew unwillingly and the soul
chafed against the landscape as a boat
chafes against the pier it lies moored to.
— Tomas Tranströmer, from “Face to Face” in The Great Enigma: New Collected Poems, translated from the Swedish by Robin Fulton (thank you, A Poet Reflects)  (via litverve)

Twitter: The Comic is a collection of comics based on the greatest tweets of our generation. The source material is used verbatim, typos and all. Despite the seemingly random nature of the tweets, the comic has reoccurring characters and story arcs that aren’t fully understood unless experienced through a single reading. With explicit permission from the writers of each comic, Twitter: The Comic could be a pretty rad book.
