I’ve just discovered Lucas. Never heard of him and his adventures?
Feud is a free 2-players small strategy game developed by Bearwaves . You command an army of 8 pieces (King, Wizard, Shield, Archers, Medic and Knights) with the objective to kill the opponent’s King. Rules are very simple: the only available move is to switch any of your pieces with other piece on the board, a piece is removed from the game when loses all its health points and every piece has its own special power (defense, heal, attack or swap).
The arts of the game are very well designed. I love the concept and minimalist approach of the overall game. The only thing I don’t like is that you can only choose among four layouts at the beginning of the game, so you can’t really distribute your pieces on the board as you like.
Lavinia Meijer playing Metamorphosis Two by Philip Glass. It’s hypnotic to watch her changing hands positions while playing the “clock” rythm.
This little puzzle/arcade game called Chess Pursuit is a clever unique approach to chess and also an astonishing technical piece because is compressed to only 13kb!
I’ll be very happy if I ever assist to a taiko live show. The performance is hypnotic.
Definition of powerful.
The Confessions of Marcus Hutchins, the Hacker Who Saved the Internet is the best and also most realistic article I’ve ever read about hacking. It’s a bit long, but I assured you that you’ll enjoy it until the end. Andy Greenberg, the journalist, nails a superb script for a movie.
Paraphrasing the movie Full Metal Jacket, this is my calculator. There are many like it, but this one is mine. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my calculator is useless. Without my calculator, I am useless.
Or at least it was that way during my university years. I used to know every funtionality and button of this Casio fx-991MS calculator. What’s more, I used to know what I was doing during the calculation process. Now, I see it and it looks like an old Chinese manuscript to me. Of course I recognize every term on it, but in the end, I only use the +, – and = buttons. It’s a pitty all these forgotten and unusued maths in my life. I should start using it againg, for real.
I love Game of Life! It’s so simple in its roots and minimalist in its outfit that I can spend hours just watching the patterns spread.
So, to pay tribute to the creator of this game, John Conway, who recently passed away, I’ve created a web to play with it. It’s basically pmav’s script modified. The first pattern that loads is the acorn, my favourite.
Musician, pianist, tennis player and pioneer of electronic music. Besides her sweet voice, this woman is trully spectacular and inspiring. She was the first not only in a men business, but also in a world that did not understand a new era of music that she was leading.
In this educational video she explains what a synthesizer is in plain English, so even children can get it.
And in this video, she presents and demoes the Buchla 200 E, the instrument that she masters and plays live. For me is very unusual to see a woman in her seventies with audio cables hanging on her neck 🙂 Love her!
