This Friday was our annual meltmedia holiday party. As usual, we had a really fun secret santa gift exchange. This year, I drew my friend and coworker Devon Tackett’s name. He’s a big sci-fi fan, so I thought a Spock/Doctor Who mashup would be right up his alley.

Crossing off another item on my 30 Before 30 list, #20: Learn to solve a Rubik’s cube.
Until recently I’d never even tried to solve a Rubik’s Cube. It kind of scared me and, after looking at one, didn’t make a whole lot of sense. I wish I could say I’m one of those people that could just see one and instantly understand how to solve it. Even when following directions, I had some trouble. But, after about two weeks of constantly working at it, I can consistently (and excitedly) solve a Rubik’s cube every time I try.
For those also not naturally Rubik’s Cube gifted, here is the tutorial I used: How to Solve a Rubik’s Cube. It had the easiest notation and was the simplest to follow.
To prove I could actually do this, I thought about putting up a video of me completing the Cube. But since it takes me an average of 3 minutes, I figured it might be a bit boring. So instead, here’s a video of the world record at 5.66 seconds.
Today is Bilbo and Frodo Baggins’ birthdays. Celebrate your love for adventure-seeking hobbits with a drink and a smoke, and don’t get too full on second breakfast!
Check out this LEGO recreation of the Battle at Helm’s Deep. Pretty awesome.
Painter Simon Monk has created a masterful series titled Secret Identity. The series depicts photorealistic superhero action figures in plastic bags. My particular favorite is Clark Kent. I can only exist in awe of his talent. Absolutely beautiful.
