<![CDATA[Mech Robot Dance Battle in Sci-Fi Short LIFE]]>

Pixelhunters put together a fun sci-fi CG animated short that features a mech robot dance battle. I wasn't expecting that at all when I first started to watch it. The designs for the film are really well done and the animation is great. Here's a synopsis of the short:

Life is a battle of choices and roads to be taken. We choose our own paths, we mark our own map. Once choices have been made, actions play out. Consequences are delivered. And in the end, we live with those consequences. But, the real struggle is making the choice to change how we take the roads untaken. Are we tough enough to decide for ourselves when the time comes?

<![CDATA[The Great Harvest Dinner]]> Corn

The air may still be summery (and, in some places, record-breakingly warm), but the bounty of vegetables turning up in farms and gardens can only mean one thing: It’s harvest time. And that is cause for celebration. Ideally, you’d get the whole neighborhood together and do a full-on pig roast, but even for a smaller gathering you can cook up a stellar dinner to showcase the harvest. Craft your own harvest dinner by choosing a dish (or two) from each of these categories:

Meat
Pancetta-Wrapped Pork Roast
Slow-Roasted Garlic Chicken
Slow-Roasted Prime Ribs of Beef
Stuffed Turkey Breast

Root Vegetables
Rutabaga and Potato Puree
Rosemary Roasted Carrots & Parsnips
Garlic Roast Potatoes

Tomatoes/Tomatillos/Eggplant/Peppers/Summer Squash
Fennel-Roasted Vegetables
Tomato & Basil Tarte Tatin
Charred Corn Salad with Creamy Tomatillo Sauce (pictured above)
Eggplant Relish
Ratatouille with Garlic Crostini

Mustard Greens
Greens/Cruciferous
Sauteed Mustard Greens with Pancetta (pictured above)
Kale Salad with Coconut & Farro
Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower
Balsamic & Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts

<![CDATA[Artist Paints A Remarkable Ant-Sized Postcard Every Day]]> Artist Paints A Remarkable Ant-Sized Postcard Every Day

Cape Town artist Lorraine Loots has a thing for teeny tiny paintings. The self-confessed 'miniaturist' has made one every single day since January 1, 2013.

Using water color and colored pencil, she renders incredible detail on the smallest of canvases. Most pieces are no larger than a coin. Many of her fans have reserved sentimental dates and even suggested content for the pieces.

The good news? Loots' paintings are up for sale. And the bad news? You'd better book really far in advance because all her paintings for this year are sold out.

Cineastas spent some time with Mike Whitehead and Finex Cast Iron Cookware Co. to give a glimpse of how Finex is trying to reinvent something that has existed for thousands of years: cast iron. I love the slow and considered process—and I love to imagine the delicious food that will be inside them.

They will be giving away 10 per day randomly until December 31, 2014. The gift cards can be used to buy back issues from NewKadia’s collection of 751,187. No purchase is necessary.

Contest rules and entry instructions are at www.NewKadia.com/Win.

NewKadia considers itself the largest on-line comic retailer that has no brick and mortar store. They also have an Unlimited Shipping program styled after Amazon Prime, but it’s going through a minor change. Previously it was 4 months of unlimited shipping in the USA for $9.99, now you can get it for 3 months for $7.50.

The contest and the changes to the free shipping program celebrate the 17 millionth online shopper at NewKadia.com, who visited August 23, according to data provided by Google Analytics and Alexa, a subsidiary of Amazon.

Also, all of NewKadia’s back issues have been graded individually before being placed on sale and a writing description is offered up for each comic on their website. Most comics priced over $35 also have a photo of the exact comic available.

One of Lifehacker's main tasks is to help you save money. But once you've saved money, where should you spend it in order to maximize the usefulness of your money spent—or even your happiness? To answer that, just look at what you spend your day doing, proportionally, and allocate money accordingly. I'm going to call it the comfort principle.

<![CDATA[Managing Enterprise SEO: An Interview with Dan Mooney by @murraynewlands]]> Managing the SEO strategy for an enterprise-level corporation can be a challenging task.
