Chris Reccardi and Lynne Naylor are wonderful pop surrealist painters I've featured on Boing Boing before. They're also respected animators.

But, you've got a busy life, so the list of articles and other assorted stuff that you'll "read later" just gets longer and longer and longer. Half of the reason… READ THE REST
Admit it…you've always wanted a Segway. Zipping up and down sidewalks and walkways. The easy, effortless spins, and the chance to experience the perfect combination of feeling like you're both walking and driving at the same time. But, for all their coolness, full-sized Segways weren't always practical to own if you weren't Paul Blart. Of… READ THE REST
So, with the heightened holiday frenzy to land a next generation video gaming console for under the tree, who topped the sales charts in December: Microsoft's Xbox Series X or Sony's PlayStation 5?
