This appears to mark the return of the Cardboard Tube Samurai, or CTS, to Penny Arcade. Personally I think when it comes to continuity they doth protest too much — it generates some of their best stuff. Panel two of this CTS strip has long been my desktop wallpaper.

This person is doing a series of videos about Sydney (Australia) using a technique that makes the city look like … a toy. I can’t explain it better than that, you just have to watch. Reminds me of that miniature city Superman keeps in the Fortress of Solitude. (Apparently the technique is called tilt-shift miniature faking, and there are lots of examples of it. Well, I thought it was cool. Nothing like Wikipedia to make you feel un-special.)
