What is dead may never die: IBT Media promised Newsweek would stay digital when it purchased the shell that had once been a weekly magazine—until the site's traffic tripled. Now they're repackaging the magazine as a "luxury item" at $7.99 a copy, on stands as early as Friday. Read more...
This week’s episode of The Walking Dead, “Internment,” may well have been the strongest in what’s shaping up to be the strongest season to date. It was directed by David Boyd, one of the most talented men you’ve never heard of. He’s been the director of photography on such visually uninspiring fare as Firefly and [...]
The Darksiders series isn't really dead. Nordic games owns it, and will presumably do something with it. But the series as we knew it, developed by Vigil Games, may as well have died earlier this year when Vigil went off and joined Crytek and left Darksiders behind, where no major publisher on Earth wanted anything to do with it.

After buying webOS and Palm for $1.2 billion, HP pulled the plug and open-sourced the platform. The first fruits of that labor are appearing as multiple devices are getting ports of the new Open webOS, keeping Palm's excellent mobile operating system alive for many fans.

According to its animator/director, Kadavre Exquis, “What is Dead May Never Die” is a time capsule in which you will shortly explore many things such as landing on the moon to film credits, passing through various experiments. If I had … Continue reading ?
What is Dead May Never Die (by Kadavre Exquis) I just loved this short experimental film by Françcois Grumelin — an abstract exploration of film titles and early computer graphics from the late 70’s and early 80’s. The music is perfect, as well, and François offers up a sweet little soundtrack to the film on Bandcamp.
Hints of yesterday’s future in Kadavre Exquis’ new work What is Dead May Never Die. Exquis directed, animated, and composed the piece (album here). Posted on Motionographer Posted on Motionographer
(Vimeo Link) What Is Dead May Never Die is a techno trip in the way back machine, with oodles of retro charm and an electro-pop soundtrack to match. Created by experimental animator Kadavre Exquis, this is an homage to the warm glow of old computer screens tempered with bits of video footage and lovely cascading [...]
Why Watch? With a punchy, computer-aided sound track, this new short from Kadavre Exquis is the audio-visual equivalent of LSD. Its random images are tied together only by a vague memory of what the past thought of the future, and the result is something mildly brain-shaking. Show More Summary
"What is dead may never die." That memorable prayer from the House of Greyjoy was never more apt than in Game of Thrones' second season finale, as a mass of the undead march on the wintry Wall in the show's final moments. As we leave Westeros for the year, ask ... More »
I think that this effectively sums up the emerging LGM position on the Bully Pulpit:
This post contains spoilers through the April 22 episode of Game of Thrones. It was probably inevitable that whatever followed “What Is Dead May Never Die,” my favorite episode of Game of Thrones thus far, would be a bit of an emotional comedown. There’s a lot that’s interesting about “Garden of Bones,” a dark, violent [...]
Last week’s episode of Game of Thrones, “What Is Dead May Never Die,” was my favorite of the show’s run so far, full of marvelous character development and deep attention to questions of fealty, faith, sexual identity, and courage. Bryan Cogman, who wrote the episode, and serves as story editor and keeper of the Game [...]
There’s a lot going on this week — betrayal, political maneuvering, impromptu shaves, fire, and… a thimble? Let’s start up north and work south. BEYOND THE WALL Jon has got both himself and the Watch kicked out of Craster’s Keep for spying on Craster. I love Jon’s fiery naïvité: it’s so urgent to him to tell Mormont [...]
As we saw last week, Tyrion clearly realizes that not everyone at King's Landing who claims loyalty to the Hand of the King is going to follow through and actually be loyal. He replaced the head of the Night's Watch last week and this week he finds out which of his trusted advisers has loose lips.
If there's one thing that you can take away from "What Is Dead May Never Die," the third episode of season two, it's that children have it rough 'round these parts. Last week's episode was a stunningly well-executed episode looking....
I will begin by again linking to HBO’s most excellent guide to the 10,000 characters on this show, to help people keep up with who is who. We begin beyond the wall with Craster evicting the Night’s Watch because Jon Snow the Whiney followed him the last episode. Show More Summary
