Fargo was darn good, dontcha know. I just finished the first season of Noah Hawley's FX adaptation of Fargo, and I really liked it. Much, much better than I'd thought it was going to be based on the first episode or two. Did any of you watch? If so, what'd you think?

When Science Looks Seriously At A...Star Wars Planet
July 24, 2014 - Kotaku
Actual science writers don't always have to write about real planets. Sometimes, when the fancy takes them, they can write about fake ones. Like, say, Tatooine, from the Star Wars universe.

Where to Buy Great Video Game Artwork
July 23, 2014 - Kotaku
I have a rule for my house: no more than a third of the artwork on my walls is allowed to be gaming-related. This rule fell apart pretty quickly when it became clear just how much beautiful video game artwork there is out there. Once, all you could really get was posters designed for the walls of kids' bedrooms; now there is a huge array of video game art that grown adults can frame and hang up without embarrassment (although I do still have a few framed posters around the place. Don't tell anyone). I now have a constant rotation of game art going on. If I didn't, my walls would be adorned by nothing else.
