I’ve decided to start reading up on Illustration more and figured I may as well share some of the links of sites I’m visiting here with you. I’m also posting this stuff here so that I won’t have to remember which sites I visited and/or which computer and which browser I was on when visiting to get back to the Favorites or Bookmarks. I can just come back to this post and know where the sites are.

•The first in a line of upcoming fragments is released – the Nova fragment. Fragments are items with very low recycle (“TT”) value which are used in various activities, such as Tiering and Enhancer manufacturing. The addition of the Nova fragment will change existing areas that use fragments. This is done to improve economic balance. Each fragment type has its own rarity level. Blazar fragments are more rare than the more common Nova type. With this update, Blazar fragments are used in the Tier system and the Nova fragments are used in Enhancer manufacturing, thus replacing the Blazar fragment ingredient previously present.
• Fixed issue with mutants giving wrong type of scanning skill.
• Fixed issue with camera movement when viewing some rapid-moving animations, both in 1st person and 3rd person view.
• Repair installation in Client Loader is not working – this will be fixed ASAP.

Calling Merian C. Cooper (1893–1973) and Ernest B. Schoedsack (1893–1979) auteurs may seem like fudging a little bit, but I don’t think it is. Yet the doubt creeps in on two levels. First, while film is undeniably a collaborative […] http://bit.ly/digBf1

“The Oscars are my Super Bowl”—it’s something of a cliché in our media-obsessed world, especially among twenty-something women such as myself, but there you have it anyway. I’m not a football fan, and to me March madness refers to the stir-craziness that inevitably accompanies the last weeks before spring. But a celebration of the silver […] http://bit.ly/97UMsR

The year was 1974, and Levitt was in the midst of a creative outburst—unusual not only because […] http://bit.ly/aWjbvq

Institutions that engage in munificent and far-reaching lending forge important collegial relationships with one another, and in the process help to create a network of public spaces with dynamic, diverse programming. Rarely, however, are these relationships sanctioned in any official capacity, which is what makes the affiliation between MoMA and P.S.1 so special. The two […] http://bit.ly/cB2Gmj
