Mr. Goat calls PayBud

This cartoon was created in tribute to Voat.co – Animation, our new favorite website. The best part is that the founder of the site Atko had good things to say. I sent him a message to make sure that it was alright that I used his Goat in our Animation and see what he thought of it and he replied. He really cares about the website he is building and the community that it fosters.

That message back from Atko made our day! Thanks so much for the support to the entire Voat community. Long live the goat!

Voat.co represents a new era for the internet.

I haven’t been writing very often but something recently piqued my interest enough to spark my will into making this post. Some of you are probably familiar with Voat.co, if you’re not familiar with it you’ll notice that it’s quite similar to Reddit in terms of layout. But the layout is where the similarities stop. Voat.co is geared to create an open and healthy environment based off of the principles of freedom of speech and freedom of expression.

One thing that really caught my eye was the sidebar text on /v/youtube, it reads:

Warning! This sub may not be about what you think it is!

Here at /v/youtube we are not about youtube especifically, because that would be boring, no one wants to follow what youtube is doing, instead we are about videos.

More especifically the videos you made. This is a subverse about sharing your own channel’s videos for self promotion

Guidelines

1. Only post your own original content.

2. Do not overpost.

This is not your personal spam box, you are supposed to self promote, but only one video a week, so make sure you choose it well.

Failure to comply to this rule will earn you a one week ban.

Sure it has a few rules but those rules are fair and it gives the internet back to the community. They want to give the creators a space where they can share without shame. I gladly posted a video on there today and I look forward to posting another one next week. I’ve tried to share my original work on Reddit before and some of the guidelines were so strict that my videos were taken down.

Voat has an awesome community so far and it hasn’t been corrupted by greed. I’ve found a place that supports Original Content, as far as I’m concerned Voat.co is my new home on the internet. They’ve got a bright future and the sites founder @Atko seems to be steering the ship in the right direction.

I believe Voat user caffeine_pills put it best… “Don’t. Fuck. It. Up.”

Check out Big Sky Fractals.


Mandelbulb Fractal by Tim Urlacher

Myself, Nikki, and a few of our friends have been working on some Fractal art and animation projects recently. We have a love for the Golden Ratio and the math behind the Fibonacci sequence. We’ve been tapping into this sacred geometry through software like Apophysis and Mandelbulb 3D. We are also spreading the love for Fractal Art and trying to help bring more relevance to this geometric art-form. Please stop by and see what we’re about!

Space Engine drives my curiosity.

A screenshot I took while playing around with Space Engine.

I’ve always been fascinated by the universe and that’s why I’m glad that I found Space Engine today. Space Engine was created by a man named Vladimir Romanyuk, a great programmer! What he created here is wonderful.

Imagine being dropped in the universe and told that you can go anywhere you want to. Where would you go first? With Space Engine you can explore the solar system with ease. Visit planets, land on them, check out their moons, then go to neighboring galaxies, countless stars, and try to comprehend the big picture. This is an amazing experience. A lot of time and energy went into development of this very sophisticated space explorer.

Erppy; Barry Martin’s Hopalong Orbits Visualizer

Erppy is like exploring the inside of a fractal and diving deeper and deeper into the unknown. Erppy was put together by Iacopo Sassarini using a simple algorithm and a mix of 3d rendering via webGL and three.js and the result is absolutely breathtaking. I find it interesting that so many different programs and one-off websites have Google employees behind them. Iacopo is indeed an employee of Google just like the creator of Patatap which I wrote about not too long ago. This is not planned, I just found things I liked and now I’m seeing a connection between them. You should really check out Erppy if you feel like slipping into the center of an infinite fractal abyss.

Cachemonet

Cachemonet is what happens when you take 2 random gifs sourced from tumblr and put them together with music. You get a lot of interesting variations of images. There’s a lot of MSDOS and Windows95-XP era stuff in there too, pretty nostalgic. The site refers to its content as “autonomous generative art” which makes sense to me. You’ll hear some great sounds in there too that are mixed nicely with the music. If you want to sing praises directly to the creator of Cachemonet just hit him up on twitter @tim_nolan.

Who needs real TV when there’s Neave.tv?

Neave.tv exists because of a man named Paul Neave who spends his time building creative and artistic web applications and software via Neave Interactive. Neave.tv specifically caught my attention because it’s so random and definitely something you can get lost in. Don’t like what you see? No problem just click the screen for something different! If you’re anything like me and enjoy Robot Chicken, Sexual Lobster, David Firth, you’ll feel right at home watching Neave TV.
