A highly efficient dytopia in SimCity

Inspired in part by Koyaanisquatsi, an architecture student has created the largest, most dense, least livable, yet most stable burg possible in SimCity. Tell me again how games can't be (made into) art.

The full explanation (with charts!) is available at Rumors On The Internets.

Shimmy Shimmy Ya (reggae style)

Another day, another great cover! I've been a Wu-Tang and ODB fan since the first time I heard them sometime in my teens. Aside from Baby I Got Your Money, Shimmy Shimmy Ya is probably my favorite Big Baby Jesus tune. So imagine my pure elation when I heard this amazing cover on one of my favorite shows, Breaking Bad. Put this shit on and I dare you not to dance your ass off like Jesse Pinkman on a meth binge.

EXTRA BONUS TRIVIA: Aaron Paul also played a lapsed Mormon who devirginized Bill Paxton's daughter on Big Love. During a scene when she flips through his record collection, the iconic artwork of Killers is clearly visible. Does this guy play characters with great taste or what?

Put your blog link in your profile

I can't stress how much easier this makes it to follow you. Also, disabling captchas makes commenting a breeze instead of a chore. It's not like the captcha really protects you from any bot-scourge. I've had mine off and, behold, not a single comment about CHEAP ED HARDY, PRADA BAGS, or MILLIONAIRE DATING on any of my posts.

Knock on wood.
