• SpongeBob’s Pineapple under the Sea is a Mathematical Impossibility

    It’s true, SpongeBob’s pineapple home under the sea is a mathematical impossibility, and not because fruit houses can’t exist underwater. The real reason is because the math on the pineaapple doesn’t add up! Mathematician and video-maker Vi Hart exposes the error in this cartoon’s arithmetic.

  • Asphalt Watches Raises $10k to Complete their Indie Epic

    Canadian cartoonists Seth Scriver and Shayne Ehman just raised over over $10k to complete their animated feature Asphalt Watches. They describe their collaborative two-man animated epic in the following way:

    “Asphalt Watches is a true adventure story: in 2000, we hitchhiked across Canada together. The animation captures our crazy journey, full of hilarious and amazing encounters. Using music and songs we make ourselves, alongside hand-drawn Flash animation, we tell the tale of making our way from a 7-11 near Chilliwack, BC where a guy was hanging out with a knife in his belly… to meeting one of only “two real Santas” in the world outside Calgary… to barely escaping death near Regina, SK. Our style is to turn real-life characters and settings into funny and poetic abstractions that depict the feeling and essence of what happened.”
