Kung Fu Election

As the tension builds in the primaries, the verbal attacks have become more and more aggressive. I don't know about the rest of you, but I think it would be much more entertaining to just watch these guys duke it out MK style. The creators of the game Kung Fu Election over at Atom Films certainly think so.

This game is surprisingly difficult. Let me know if any of you can get passed the second opponent.

Tip: You can skip the intro if you want to get straight to the game.

Meet the World

Icaro Doria, a 25-year-old Brazilian man, authored a flag campaign for a magazine he works for which he titled "Meet the World." Icaro has this to say about the campaign:

We started to research relevant, global, and current facts and, thus, came up with the idea to put new meanings to the colours of the flags. We used real data taken from the websites of Amnesty International and the UNO.

The campaign has been running in Portugal since January 2005. There are eight flags that portray very current topics like the division of opinions about the war in Iraq in the United States, the violence against women in Africa, the social inequality in Brazil, the drug trafficking in Columbia, Aids and malaria in Angola, etc.

Brilliant work. Take a look...
