Minimalist Star Wars Poster Remakes
Thanks very much to Bill Bittner for sharing these awesome posters with us.
"Really gorgeous, minimalist, re-imagined Star Wars posters. And the darned things made me feel young again."
I love the poster for The Empire Strikes Back.
When looking at it I get the idea for a really cool skin to apply over the classic game Space Invaders. Another classic from my childhood.
These really do bring me back!
Thanks to Andy Helm for putting these together.

FanCraft: Mario Push Pin Mosaic
Do you have a lot of pins kicking around? Looking for a craft to do? Why not pin art! I can't believe I didn't think of this before. When I was little I would play with my light bright which would be an easy transition into pin art.
There are over 17,000 pins on the board, and the work was done entirely by students, mainly members of the CIS Student Association.
Peek A Bookmark
Techo-Ninja made a Peek A Boo! / Peek A Chu? bookmark that rocks!
The picture is for the front and back of the book mark. Sprite Stitch held a bookmark challenge In February . This is the first place winner which gets my vote. I want one.

TV to Stream Netflix Videos Directly
This is great news for several reason!
Less devices to have hooked up in my entertainment center.
I am overjoyed that LG Electronics is making it easier to stream internet content directly to a TV. My entertainment center has so many devices, wires, plugs, and switchers that I can not hook up another device. I finally got fed-up with having to switch between devices and buying new switchers and having to sort through wires and plugs that I had to draw a line in the sand deciding there needed to be a simpler process. Why can’t I have my streaming shows, DVD’s, and video game consoles fed through just a few devices. Thank you LG Electronics, hopefully this will begin a trend for other TV designers. Thank you Netflix for offering options to your customers and not forcing us into another single purpose device.
Making it easier for people to Decable
With Netflix and LG making it easier for the mainstream market to stream content through the internet more people will realize the joy of breaking free from appointment content. For many years I have worked irregular schedules which forced me to miss all of the appointment content provided through cable. Because of that I had to find alternative means to get that content. I have been an advocate of the process of breaking free of appointment TV for almost a decade now I just didn’t have a name for it. Now thanks to Jeff over at Command N I have a term for the process which is to Decable.
