Ok, I’ve been traipsing around in Alaska and my return to civilization resulted in a fierce bout of web surfing as I reacclimatized to digital life. And I found this…

O. M. G. You can show up somewhere with a wheelbarrow of cash and walk away with a functional mech? Seriously?

Great Pyrenees and Otaku

A quick divergence from things CGI, as an Otaku and owner of 4 Great Pyrenees dogs I have noticed just how often big white dogs appear in anime and manga. Are there many great pyrs in Japan? I can’t imagine trying to own one in a crowded metro…

Gorillaz and Miku. Who can’t resist a cg character performing onstage? Not these people. I dig the leek-shaped lightsticks. (For the impatient, Miku makes her stage appearance at about 5:25 in this video.)

The mocap performance is nice I guess but what really interests me about Hatsyune Miko is that her voice is synthesized, not recorded. Would have been cooler if she was puppeteer-ed in real time ala Henson’s creature shop…

Update – no video available anymore, it was removed from youtube. Bah.
