‘Bartkira’, A Version of the Classic Anime ‘AKIRA’ Featuring ‘The Simpsons’ Characters

Curator James Harvey and producer Kaitlin Sullivan created an animated trailer for a version of the classic anime AKIRA featuring The Simpsons characters under the “Bartkira” collaborative art project based on an original idea by Ryan Humphrey. The project consists mostly of several volumes of comics.

In the days of old, deep in the dredges of the “Do the Bartman” VHS, there was a trailer.

In partnership with Chicken Tonight, Butterfinger, and CC Lemon, the early 90s execs of Fox and Toho made an animated short. An attempt to appeal to American consumers without having to spend a lot of money. Until a changing of the guard decided the kids needed more Poochie and it was lost…until today.

It may seem like the semicolon is struggling with an identity crisis. It looks like a comma crossed with a period. Maybe that’s why we toss these punctuation marks around like grammatical confetti; we’re confused about how to use them properly.

A Mind-Bending Inceptionist Video Rendered by an Artificial Neural Network

Artist Memo Akten has created a mind-bending inceptionist video rendered by an artificial neural network. Akten begins with a clip of himself, which the artificial brain then tries to interpret using its database of millions of images.

Google recently released a gallery of still inceptionist images created with the same process, but the added video element makes the effect of the neural network particularly entrancing.
