“In Saturn’s Rings”
A truly wondrous 4K movie trailer for the upcoming IMAX film “In Saturn’s Rings”. This was assembled from 2D photos, primarily taken by Cassini, although you wouldn’t know that by looking at the film. The filmmakers spent years developing techniques to stitch flat photos into immersive experiences, and the result looks pretty great. No CGI. All awesome.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: A BEGINNER’S GUIDE
The year is 2003. It is a kinder time, a simpler time.
Every single one of your classmates knows how to draw Trogdor the Burninator - first, you draw an S, then you draw a more different S.
"Everybody to the Limit" is a staple at middle school dances.
Your best friend’s little brother owns a plush The Cheat, and you can kick it, and it makes noise.
The year is 2003, the golden age of Homestar Runner.
Basically, every online content creator, every webcomic artist, every YouTube entertainer, owes Homestar Runner a shitload.
Once upon a time, Homestar Runner was the definitive Flash site, an online destination for kids and immature grown-ups alike, fielding millions of hits and thousands of e-mails a day.
Homestar Runner, the earnest athlete with a pure heart and a love for mankind, and his arch-nemesis, Strong Bad, a wrestler with a penchant for issuing snarky responses to fanmail, defined a generation through weird, surrealist Flash cartoons tinged with outdated pop cultural references.
Ten years later, there’s a new generation of Internetters who have never experienced the pure, unadulterated joy of H-Star-R, and that breaks my heart.
So, here, I’ve compiled this beginner’s guide to Homestar Runner. Every cartoon on this list is shorter than five minutes. Get into it. Do yourself a favour.

Matt Chapman, the brother who did most of the voices, went to FSU. At one point I went over there for a party and met him and got him to record the outgoing message on my voicemail. I felt like a god.
Ima go pour out a 40 of melonade in memory of the H star R.
This is important.
From Internet History Lessons: Vol. 3
Not science, but important that you learn this. Everyone. If you watch them all, you get a tropheee, like The Chort.
