NBA Player Amar’e Stoudemire in Hot Seat for Anti-Gay Slur on Twitter

Another case of a professional athlete/celebrity making a public offense on social media.  This time it was Amar’e Stoudemire and it was in response to a fan who called out Stoudemire basically wanting him to come back and play better next season.  This obvious New York Knicks fan is also a Stoudemire fan.  With this not being the first time we’ve seen this do you guys think it should be overlooked as part of their personal freedom of speech or should sports leagues, labels etc be put in charge of monitoring these types of accounts?

The Evolution of 8-Bit Art | Off Book | PBS [VIDEO]

Beginning with early Atari and Nintendo video games, the 8-bit aesthetic has been a part of our culture for over 30 years. As it moved through the generations, 8-bit earned its independence from its video game roots. The idea of 8-bit now stands for a refreshing level of simplicity and minimalism, is capable of sonic and visual beauty, and points to the layer of technology that suffuses our modern lives. No longer just nostalgia art, contemporary 8-bit artists and chiptunes musicians have elevated the form to new levels of creativity and cultural reflection.PBS Off Book
