I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.

    Who is performing vocals here? Not what I expect from Japanther, but I suppose it’s nice to change it up now and then.

    i liked the “He-Man bombs.”  when I was a lad, the kids at the cool high school my friend went to passed around an afro wig on picture day.  every page of the yearbook that year had at least a few afros on it.  same kinda thing.

    cool song, too.

  3. Some really great work here.

    I did an Animation degree and some of the other graduates were producing work inferior to this after studying for 3 years (well, I say studying…).

    Damn kids.

    I think it is interesting that there are a few common aesthetic styles among the different young artists.  Even though it appears that each student only had a couple seconds of animation, some of what I saw showed a lot of thought and creativity.  Well done, kids.  It is wonderful to see art nurtured like this.
