We rarely do non-product news, but this one is special because it is one piece of entertainment news that correlates to tech. And how so, you ask? Simple. Psy’s “Gangnam Style” scores over 2.1 billion views on Youtube and in the process, it kind of breaks YouTube view counter. Oops. The story goes that the video website’s number of views was in 32-bit integer, which counts up to an astronomical 2,147,483,647 (of views) and that was a-ok before the 2012 Korean language mega hit started to sweep the globe, topping the various medias including iTunes chart, YouTube and some say, Ellen DeGeneres Show. From than until now, its official music video has been watched (at the time of this writing) 2,158,159,770, which means it would have broke the code, so to speak, if Google’s YouTube does not do anything about it (basically, it will just stop displaying the count).

animated or not, we considered ourselves as serious sci-fi addicts. if you as big a fan as us for such genre of film, then you shouldn’t miss this epic stop-motion animated film created by one Takahide Hori. and when we said “don’t miss it”, we seriously mean don’t miss it. the JUNK HEAD 1, as the film was called, was set in a distant future, where the human race, struck by some ancient virus, was dwindling in numbers which was made worst by the race’s inability to reproduce. so naturally, humans were genetically enhanced to live longer, and clones were created to help supplement the workforce, which lead to an eventual conflict between the clones and their master. anyway, we thought the storyline, though by no means refreshing, was pretty awesome and the cinematography is certainly pretty spell-binding.
