Metal Knight Soul

A group of super-powered robot knights are created to defend humanity from alien invaders. It’s too late, and humanity is wiped out. The show follows one particular knight, Aeon, as it wanders the galaxy in search of a new purpose. Each episode Aeon goes to a new world, gets embroiled with problems there, and ends up leaving. Sometimes it encounters other knights, who have their own reactions to the loss of humanity.

fuckyeahfluiddynamics:

Wingtip vortices are a result of the finite length of a wing. Airplanes generate lift by having low-pressure air travelling over the top of the wing and higher pressure air along the bottom. If the wing were infinite, the two flows would remain separate. Instead, the high-pressure air from under the wing sneaks around the wingtip to reach the lower pressure region. This creates the vorticity that trails behind the aircraft. I was first introduced to the concept of wingtip vortices in my junior year during introductory fluid dynamics. As I recall, the concept was utterly bizarre and so difficult to wrap our heads around that everyone, including the TA, had trouble figuring out which way the vortices were supposed to spin. A few good photos and videos would have helped, I’m sure. (Photo credits: U.S. Coast Guard, S. Morris, Nat. Geo/BBC2)

I just got some really nicely printed copies of my senior thesis comic, Bacchanalia! I worked on this comic for ages under the tutelage of David Mazzuchelli and I’m pretty excited about it. Here’s the blurb:

Josiah is still recovering from a bad breakup when he stumbles upon a hidden world of drug- and drink-fueled dance parties happening in the forest near his college. A handsome stranger who speaks in riddles, Greek mythology come to life, and a missing toy lure Josiah into a mysterious cult. Bacchanalia is a 24-page black and white comic about love, grief, and the seduction of altered states of consciousness.

You can purchase the physical book here (it’s a great quality printing, nice paper stock and a matte cover) or download the PDF on Gumroad! Reblogs are super appreciated for this post, I’d love to get this comic out to people! <3,

Molly

I don’t reblog things on here very often but you guys should definitely absolutely positively check out and drool over and covet and buy my friend Molly’s amazing comic that she made for her senior thesis. Can we all just talk about how beautiful the composition and line work is?

jeeyonmakes has good taste and if she says you should check it out you probably should. Will update with a review.

子曰:「人而不仁,如禮何?人而不仁,如樂何?」

What use are the rites to a inhumane person? What use is music to an inhumane person?

Social order (and remember that music is an intrinsic part of Zhou social order) is worthless if it doesn’t have human feeling backing it up. The whole point of rites and practices is to give a useful means of expressing that humane, compassionate emotion.

It’s very easy to get caught up in social order for social order’s sake, and to pretend that inhumane and immoral actions are justified by “law and order” or “tough love” or whatever slogan is popular these days. But this isn’t only self-deception, it’s dangerous self-deception. Social order must be founded on a shared, compassionate humanity or it’s just tyranny and bullying. Without that, society will lose its legitimacy and collapse.

Trans note: “The Rites” is not a great term for 禮, a word that encompasses customs, etiquette, ritual and religious practice, law and ethics.

getting back on the analects train with a 100% excellent entry.

The Drifter’s Escape: TRUTH

bankuei:

The Drifter’s Escape is a tabletop RPG that breaks down how society reinforces kyriarchy and oppression.  And you make a damn good story while you do it.

The author, Ben Lehman, has the free download here, and the description about the game here.

One player plays the Drifter, you’re just trying to make it through.  One player plays The Devil, and the Devil wants you to cause harm.  One player plays The Man, and the Man wants you to conform.  

Whenever you do anything in the game, you draw a poker hand, and so does the Devil and the Man.  The Devil and The Man will offer to trade hands with you… if you agree to do something they want you to do.   Most of the NPCs are controlled by The Man, or the Devil- society’s evils are all too obvious and all too often inflicted on you- the outsider.

Here’s the thing - you don’t actually know if the hand they’re offering you is good, or if they’re lying, until you take the deal.

Sometimes you try to work with the system and it still fucks you.  Sometimes you say Fuck It and do something wrong, hoping you’ll get something decent out of it, and you get jack shit.  And sometimes, sometimes it’s exactly what they said, and then you got to live up to your part of the bargain, and then you find yourself deeper in a hole.

At the end of every game, the question is, “Who owns the Drifter’s soul?” and that’s not answered with rules or mechanics, but the story you made and the compromises and the choices you made as a Drifter.

It’s amazing and terrible and brilliant.  One person said, “It’s the only game that people play that honestly deals with racism because the default assumption is that everyone is evil until proven to be decent human beings.”

It’s free.  Go download it.
