Paths of Hate

Paths of Hate is a highly stylized Polish CGI animated short movie which to an extent mimics traditional cel animation, but goes far beyond what's practically possible with traditional techniques. It also has some excellent, high-intensity aerial combat. Possibly NSFW for some light blood and gore.

An Era in Ideas

An Era in Ideas. "To mark the 10th anniversary of the September 11 attacks, The Chronicle Review asked a group of influential thinkers to reflect on some of the themes that were raised by those events and to meditate on their meaning, then and now. The result is a portrait of the culture and ideas of a decade born in trauma, but also the beginning of a new century, with all its possibilities and problems." [Via]

“British Muslims welcome working with everyone including members of the Lesbian and Gay community against a common enemy, fascism.”

Gay and Muslim groups getting together in the UK? plans are to look at homophobia in the Muslim community and Islamophobia in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. The Muslim Council of Britain is also admitting that if you have nothing positive to say keep your mouth shut, which is a very good first step. Can two groups often on the receiving end of hatred work together ? “British Muslims welcome working with everyone including members of the Lesbian and Gay community against a common enemy, fascism.” I don't know if they have the likes of Michael Savage there (or the many many others), who rail against (and call for the death of) both Muslims and gays on the airwaves daily, but it seems hopeful, no?

What's next, inhalers named wheezy?

Come on, the inventors of The Spazz had to realize they weren't choosing the best name for a wheelchair. And such thoughtful marketing: "Have you been dreaming of that unique custom wheelchair that would not cost you an arm and a leg?" [more inside]

Anti-social Software: Network Your Nemesis-es!

Nemester "an online community that connects paranoids, egotists, villains, and monomaniacs through networks of competing agendas and incompatable ideologies", (and the ideal social web for MetaFilter members).
From the entertainingly paranoid Lyle Zapato, who previously brought us Metric Time (MeFi'd), the Republic of Cascadia homepage (MeFi'd), the Pacific Tree Octopus (MeFi'd) and the Aluminum Foil Deflector Beanie (Re-pea-ted-ly MeFi'd). Via my closest enemy, PreSurfer.

Arthur Miller, playwright, fears for American Civil Liberties

Arthur Miller, playwright, fears for American Civil Liberties Here is a distinguised writing Lefty who sure does not give up and hits away at what he perceives as enemies as he did so many years ago. Usually, with age, lefties grow up and move Rightward.
