Mad Quickies

Mad Quickies: 2D Fightin’ Scientists, Heroine Complex Novel, Starship White Noise, Art Crimes and Way More!

Hello there my loves. It’s Wednesday and your old pal Brian has cooked up a batch of mid-week Quickies, just for you. Lots of great links this week, sent in by some of my favorite people. Let’s?


Remember how you’ve always wanted a 2D fighting game that pits scientists against each other? Here you go. -Via Critical Dragon

The Panama Papers and what they show about the art market. -Via Donna

Scientists have designed a new Tree of Life. I like how its shape mimics Darwin’s original. -Via Donna

Superhero novel alert! Heroine Complex, Sarah Kuhn’s book about Asian-American superheroes, comes out July 5. -Via Donna

What’s this? Leonardo da Vinci’s actual living relatives have been found? Am… am I one? Are you? -Via Amy

We’re a bit late to the game on this one but Twitter (for iOS and Android native apps) now supports alternate text for images that makes content more accessible to people who are blind or visually impaired. -Via Beth

Here is the spaceship sounds white noise generator that you requested (I already had this app and it’s great). -Via Jim

Well this is what I wish I was spending the rest of my life making – Miniature treehouse sculptures by Jedediah Voltz.
