Mad Quickies: Your One Stop, Post Xmas, Hangover Roundup

Hello my dears, I’m writing to you on my mom’s old iPad, from the New Jersey Wilderness. While I don’t have any appreciable post-holiday hangover, you probably do.

Mad Quickies: The Smallest Sculptures Ever Created, Cymatics, Walls of Snow and More!

Cymatics is the study of visible sound via vibration. It is also the title of a ridiculously wonderful music video by Nigel Stanford that demonstrates the phenomenon in many different ways. I could watch this all day. I... »
