<![CDATA[What the USA thinks of Europe and what Europe thinks of the USA]]> What the USA thinks of Europe and what Europe thinks of the USA

Stereotypes today are typically outdated and vaguely racist but when harmless, they can be quite comical. Like these quick hitter animations about what the USA thinks of Europe and vice versa and what different parts of Europe thinks about the other parts. They're a lot of fun to watch.

<![CDATA[Comical Animated Rock Creature Short - A TALE OF MOMENTUM & INERTIA]]>

"A Tale of Momentum & Inertia" is a humorous CG animated short film directed by Kirk Kelley and Kameron Gates for HouseSpecial. In it, a giant rock creature accidentally sends a giant boulder down a mountain toward a city on the edge of the sea. The rock creature springs into action to try to save the town, but things take an unexpected turn for the creature and the town. The short is beautifully designed and animated, and I know this is one you are all going to enjoy, so check it out!

<![CDATA[Captivating CG Animated WWI Short Film - SORT (NO MAN'S LAND)]]>

Sort (No Mans Land) is a very powerful short that comes from director David Adler. The CG animated film is set during World War I in 1916, and the story centers on two Danish soldiers in the German army. One of the soldiers has a burnt, deformed face, and the two are stranded in a bomb shelter on the Western Front. They are struggling to survive the constant bombardment of the enemy attacking from the outside. The two characters also have their own struggles within the shelter to overcome as well.

The moment I started watching this film I was hooked. It reels the viewer right in with an chilling action sequence of a battle taking place in the dead of night. It's really a thrilling sequence of red flashes and shadowy silhouettes, and the movie only gets better from there. 

The animation style and character design is unique, and the narrative is completely captivating. This is an all-around beautiful short film that I hope you take the time to watch. If you can, I suggest you watch it in the dark with the sound turned up. The film is not in English, and there are no subtitles, but you get the gist of the story and what they are saying as you watch it.

Music is inherently orderly (at least, most of it is), but you'd never know it by looking at a page full of notes and notation. However, a new TED video shows how the backbone of any piece of music—rhythm—can be easily visualized using a simple wheel and hand.

We’ve featured Lindsey Stirling in the past with her violin tributes to Star Wars, Legend of Zelda, and Skyrim, but this time she’s doing something a little different. The song is called Roundtable Revival and it’s from her latest album, Shatter Me. In the video, Stirling and her violin are duking it out against some guitar-playing bandits with plenty of steampunk cowboy style.

I think this silly animation about a giant rock creature trying to rescue a town is a hilariously dark lesson that shows how some things just aren't worth saving. Or that maybe all our work is useless. Or perhaps that bad intentions can cause good actions. Or whatever, maybe it's just a really fun CG animation.

A Breaking Bad line of actions figures available at Toys"R"Us, which come “complete with a detachable sack of cash and a bag of meth,” are causing quite a stir. A Florida mom, who is even an admitted fan of the AMC drama, has started a petition to have the toy store chain remove the toy line from their shelves. Bryan Cranston, who won multiple Emmys for his role as chemistry-teacher-turned-meth-lord Walter White on the show, took to twitter to comment on the petition:

Two words (and a video): He won.

<![CDATA[Dinner Rush! Creamy Rigatoni with Squash, Sage and Pine Nuts]]>

Move over, pumpkin spice latte — you’re not the only squash-themed edible that deserves the seasonal spotlight. Let’s clear a path for good ol’ reliable butternut. Is it the sexiest squash at the market? Hardly. But what it lacks in front-porch decor appeal it more than makes up for with a cute name and remarkable versatility.

This time of year, butternut squash really is everywhere. You can pick one up whole or already cubed up in the produce section. They’re also hiding out in a lesser-known location: the freezer case. Frozen squash will save a ton of prep time, whether you buy it cubed or pureed. While the recipe below makes fantastic use of the whole squash, buy yourself a little extra and toss it in with soups, stews or your breakfast hash. You’ll be doing your dinner plate a vitamin-boosting favor and helping out an underdog.

Now, step out into that spotlight, butternut squash. You deserve it.

Creamy Rigatoni with Squash, Sage and Pine Nuts

Total Time: 17 min
Prep: 2 min
Cook: 15 min

Yield: 4 to 6 servings
Level: Easy

1 pound rigatoni or mezze rigatoni
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
12 leaves sage
2 shallots, finely chopped
1 teaspoon whole or ground fennel seeds
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup dry white wine, optional
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 cups milk
One 10-ounce bag frozen cubed butternut squash
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more to garnish
2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
Few grates fresh nutmeg
Salt and ground black pepper
1/4 cup pine nuts, toasted

Bring a pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook to al dente according to package directions. Drain well and reserve.

While the pasta is cooking, place a medium pot over medium heat with the butter and oil. Once the butter has melted and stops foaming, add the sage and fry until crisp and aromatic, about 30 seconds. Remove the sage leaves from the pan and reserve. Add the shallots, fennel seeds and garlic to the pan and cook until aromatic and tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the wine, if using, and cook until almost completely evaporated.

Sprinkle the flour into the pan and cook for 1 minute. Slowly add the milk to the pan, whisking to incorporate. Simmer the sauce until thickened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the squash, Parmesan, parsley and nutmeg, and simmer to heat through. Season the sauce with salt and pepper.

Gently toss the sauce with the cooked pasta. Serve garnished with pine nuts, the reserved fried sage leaves and additional Parmesan cheese.

NOTE: When adding the milk to the pan, it will pay off to give it a quick warm-up in the microwave or on the stove. Adding cold milk to the hot pan will cause the flour to seize up and could make your sauce lumpy. Warming the milk will help it to better incorporate.
