Here are a couple of quotes that caught my attention.
“Me, too. I’m In-de-pen-dent.” — Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
[from Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer (1964)]
“I was doing these visualizers for WinAmp, this plugin where you have 3D dancing girl at about 10,000 polygons. Back in 2000, that was pretty respectable. There were lots of bounce physics on those. I came up with the proper solution to the breast bouncing one night over seven Guinnesses with a waitress. I showed her my laptop, and what I was working on, and she happily jumped and bounced for me.” — Paul Steed
[from recent Gamasutra interview]
