New Simpsons opening titles

For the first time in 20 years, The Simpsons has created an all-new opening title sequence, largely to coincide with their move to HD and widescreen format.

How to improvise in a police state

Saw this on Boing Boing, and it is pretty damn clever: I don’t really believe they did this because they “couldn’t afford a camera crew”. I mean, it’s a great way to get noticed, and exploit the thorough failure of the British surveillance state at the same time. Think of the tagline: “CCTV — won’t ...
