MANHATTAN — The rooftop of the Metropolitan Museum of Art has been transformed into a “Cloud City.”
Argentine artist Tomas Saraceno’s eye-popping, site-specific installation — a large constellation of 16 interconnected modules, measuring 54 feet long and 28 feet high — will be accessible to museum visitors in limited numbers through Nov. 4. The piece was slated to open Tuesday, but remained closed because of the rain.
Museum-goers will be able to spend up to 20 minutes walking through the hive-like structure, with its transparent and reflective materials, to catch various perspectives of the city’s skyline amid the leafy expanse of Central Park.
Poster design is a true art form. Often the best posters will be bold, eye catching and visually intense, yet minimal and elegant at the same time. As with logo design, often a great poster will be great for what it omits, as well as what it features.
Really the effectiveness of a poster’s design depends upon it’s purpose. Whilst some posters require a basic typographic treatment, others may suit an elaborate visual design. When designing your own posters always try to bear in mind the poster’s audience, and what you are representing.
Expect to wait while the page loads, but the payload is worth it. Poster links give you more from the artists.
Aaron Paul is even more huggable than the junkie he plays on Breaking Bad […]
Paul, 32, is slight enough to be physically convincing as the twentysomething he’s played for the past four years. On the show, his dithering youthfulness is somewhat exaggerated by his baggy clothing and the way he tends to slouch and let his arms hang behind him like a dreamy, impatient 9-year-old who wants to be somewhere else.
He was in the X-Files episode, Lord of the Flies! I never watched many of the Doggett episodes but may need to dig this up.
If you haven’t watched any Breaking Bad, catch up on Netflix. Season 5 is scheduled to start this July. w00t!
Geeks stay up all night disassembling the world so that they can put it back together with new features. They tinker and fix things that aren’t broken. Geeks abandon the world around them because they’re busy soldering together a new one.
It’s a fairly long, insightful comic but totally worth it. If you’ve nothing else to do, also check out the links in the “Additional notes from the author” section. Tesla is my hero.

In the future, when our kids’ kids are studying the origins of cybernetic humans, they will learn that one of the first pieces of the anatomy to be invented was the butt. And they will learn that the first robot butt was named Shiri, and its creators wanted it to be happy.
Inventors at the University of Electro-Communications in Tokyo are responsible for this bulbous, quivering achievement. As strange as it sounds, Shiri (the “buttocks humanoid robot”) may actually represent a big step forward in replicating physical human sensation (or, in the words of the inventor, it “expresses various emotions with organic movements of the artificial muscles”).
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Bassist Donald “Duck” Dunn, a member of Booker T. & the MGs whose thick bottom grooves anchored many of the classic soul hits from the 1960s, has died on tour in Japan, his friend and bandmate Steve Cropper said on Sunday. Dunn was 70.
Dunn, an integral part of the Memphis soul sound as bassist for the MGs, the house band for Stax and Volt records, died Sunday morning after finishing two shows at the Blue Note Night Club in Tokyo, Cropper said in a posting on his Facebook page.
“Today I lost my best friend, the world has lost the best guy and bass player to ever live,” Cropper said.Cropper, who also performed with Dunn on television and in the movies as part of the MGs-inspired Blues Brothers tribute band, said Dunn had died in his sleep, but he gave no other details about the circumstances.
