…Zinio is giving away free magazines?

Zinio Read Green Initiative

Edit: This promotion is no longer active.

Zinio takes many of your favorite magazines and republishes them digitally, so to help spread the word about their rather environmentally friendly service, they created the Read Green Initiative to give away free magazine subscriptions to anyone that asks.

For a limited time, you can get a year-long subscription to magazines like Men’s Journal, Shutterbug, Road and Track, Popular Science, Outside and even Penthouse for little more than an email address.

In addition, they don’t take your mailing address or ask you to put down a credit card ‘deposit’, so there’s no need to worry about canceling your subscription at the end of the year in order to avoid getting charged.

If you’d like to preview what the service is like, just select from one of the magazines below, and if you’d like to sign up for your own free magazine subscription, just visit the site and select from the available options. (They’re first come, first served, so grab the one you want quickly before it’s gone.)

…Claytorial wants to help you understand?

Claytorial

Claytorial is the claymation version of Common Craft, and their goal is to “help people understand complicated things”.

Their first demo is for a magazine called More2Girls, and it shows off what they’ve got in store, though I can’t wait to see what they can with a concept like the Google spider, which is currently in their upcoming section.

For now though, it’s a great start, and a good look at an area that I think we’ll see a lot of in the coming year. (Explanations for complex technologies and services in simple and easy to understand ways.)

…Ken Block and Travis Pastrana can fly?

Racer X Magazine

Ken Block and Travis Pastrana look like they’re trying out for the next superman movie on this cover shoot for Racer X magazine.

The stunt involved Travis backflipping his MotoX bike over Block’s Subaru, and then fire was added in just for fun (and to keep things interesting).

When asked about the stunt, Block replied “Glad Travis didn’t hit his head on the top of my car, and at least I didn’t break my back this time.”

Nice.

…It’s Movie Monday: Fridges?

Nothing says dark digital short like…fridges?

Animator Fujio Tanabe’s short, called Fridges, was part of New York’s Japan Cuts, an annual festival of Japanese cinema, and takes a dark look at the often overlooked appliance that’s probably lurking in your kitchen right now.

Do you know where your leftovers are?
