  3. Rap Lyrics on Trial & Too Much Shakespeare?

    Happy Birthday, Mr. Shakespeare — the Bard would be 450 this month. But after centuries dominating the world’s theaters, could you give anyone else a place on the stage? Could we try Marlowe in the Park, or an Oregon Centlivre Festival? Plus, another rapper goes on trial for lyrics that prosecutors say constitute evidence of a violent crime. And the novelist Jeff VanderMeer sees the Sunshine State as the perfect setting for an alien invasion.

  5. Coccinelle 1: La prima puntata!

    La prima puntata!

    Ecco la prima puntata di Coccinelle, il podcast di cose belle. D’ora in poi sarà ufficialmente “Coccinelle”, plurale: Elisa e Matteo però non sono mai contenti, e in questa puntata vi ingannano dicendo che il programma sarà mensile. E invece, subito dopo han deciso che sarà settimanale! Tutti i giovedì, alle 11e30 del mattino.

    Adesso, gli argomenti di cui abbiamo parlato.

    La reunion dei Monty Python

    Anche se Terry Gilliam l’ha definita “deprimente”, la reunion dei Monty Python è uno degli eventi più attesi dell’anno. Si sa pochissimo.

    Il trailer cinematografico dell’evento, sul Guardian.

    Titoli non politically correct, correct e basta

    Un elenco di titoli piuttosto offensivi nei confronti delle donne, riscritti in maniera più umana e dignitosa (e aderente alla realtà).

    A 9 anni crea un rifugio per salvare gli animali da strada nel suo garageKen ha 9 anni, è filippino, e “da quando ne ha memoria”, scrive, ha sempre voluto mettere su un rifugio per gli animali di strada, un posto dove i cani potessero essere felici, in salute e giocare insieme, senza il rischio di venire abbattuti. Dopo aver postato, a Febbraio, qualche foto in compagnia dei nuovi amici sul suo sito sono arrivate donazioni da tutto il mondo.

    Madonna vs. Malawi, vince Malawi

    Madonna fa incazzare il presidente del Malawi, Joyce Banda.

    L’autobiografia di Neil Patrick Harris

    Uscirà in America il 14 ottobre e sarà legendary!

    Spurious correlation, che possiamo tradurre in: c’entra un cazzo ma è figo

    Spurious correlation: ovvero dati che non c’entrano niente l’un con l’altro, messi a confronto.

    Il set di Star Wars VII

    Sad Batman

    Un meme lanciato da poco che ci fa scompisciare parecchio.

    Una poltrona per 41mila dollari

    Tre studenti di New York si siedono sul nuovo divano, appena comprato alla Salvation Army per 20 dollari, e scoprono che è piuttosto scomodo. Uno dei tre si accorge che sotto il bracciolo si trova una busta, e che contiene 700 dollari. Ravanando meglio tra cuscini e rivestimenti, i ragazzi hanno raccolto una cifra record: quasi 41mila dollari.

    Stanno arrivando i Mondiali…

    E per farli piacere a due persone come noi, a cui non frega nulla di calcio, c’è un solo modo: guardare i momenti topici ricreati dai Lego.

    Una letterina per Papa Francesco

    26 donne italiane scrivono una letterina a cuore aperto al Papa per confessare i loro amori segreti con altrettanti preti.

    Ragazzi con la gonna

    In 27 scuole superiori di Nantes i ragazzi si sono presentati in classe indossando la gonna per combattere il sessismo dilagante e schiararsi apertamente per l’egalité dei sessi.

    Film Coccinelle approved del mese

    Si intitola Safety Not Guaranteed, ed è bello.

    Condividi pure!

  7. Doom & Myst, 20 Years After - NYU Game Center Lecture

    There are few games as important or influential as DOOM and MYST. While DOOM founded what would become one of the defining genres of video games, MYST introduced a huge new audience to the digital art form.

    Join us for an evening with two of the most important creative forces behind these two world changing games, John Romero (DOOM) and Rand Miller (MYST), as they discuss their visionary works. The free-wheeling conversation, moderated by Frank Lantz, director of the NYU Game Center, will find the two legends meditating on their subsequent careers, sharing their thoughts about the development and future of the game industry, and commenting on the legacies of each other’s work.

  9. G4C14: Paolo Pedercini Making Games in an F****d Up World

    Molleindustria is a project of re-appropriation of video games, a call for the radicalization of popular culture, an independent game developer. Since 2003, it has produced free, short-form, online games — from satirical business to meditations on labor and alienation, from playable theories to politically incorrect pseudo-games.
