The Catching Fire poster is actually one of those newfangled “motion posters” which is basically a gif that won’t stop playing sound at you, so we’re putting it behind the jump. Yes, it comes with a mute button.

In the meantime, remember Nerdache Cakes? They’re starting a YouTube channel for tutorials, but need 1k likes before they do. Go help them out! (Tumblr)

Rest in Peace, Ray Bradbury

The family of Ray Bradbury announced this morning that the author died peacefully last night after a “lengthy illness.” The man behind Fahrenheit 451, The Martian Chronicles, and The Illustrated Man was ninety one.

io9 contacted Danny Karapetian, Bradbury’s grandson, who said this:

He was the biggest kid I know.
