Re: The most beautiful animation you've ever seen?

Tekkonkinkreet was a flawed film, I thought, on a number of levels, but the animation itself was bizarre, arresting, gorgeous and memorable. Yes. Gorgeous artwork. I came here to see if this was mentioned, and it was. It's one of my favourite films. The making of... book and manga are incredible. I...

Re: Gender tickboxes on forms, more options than m/f?

Also, to compare the gender choice to another on forms, how about ethnicity? On these forms, they have many ticky boxes for different ethnicities, and in the ones which I have filled in, an "Other" box. The majority of ethnicities are already covered in the above boxes, so by your reckoni...

Re: FOR THE XKCD-BAND: ch00n ideas

I quite like number 1 and 5 but like poxic said, those do seem like the most complex of the set which could be tricky for our tentative beginnings. Whilst I don't really like the melody of 4, I could totally see it working on a larger scale due to its composition. So I guess, my favourite is number ...
