Visualizing the Halo Universe: Round 2
Postmortem has kicked off Week 2 of his 'Visualizing the Halo Universe' art contest - this one is focused on "any undesignated human or Covenant ship from the Halo comics". The entries from last week were fantastic - let's see if we can do it again! (Louis Wu 17:10:58 UTC) (permalink)
Triumvirate – Reflections
Forward Unto Dawn (the website, not the movie) has finally posted the third piece of its Reach Datapad analysis trilogy (part 2 came out in June, 2011) - this series can give you a pretty good overview of what the Datapads were all about (and how they altered our understanding of the Halo universe). Thanks, Dani!

Football and Video Games... great mix
The Ohio State University Marching Band paid tribute to video games during the halftime show of the Nebraska game on October 6. Halo makes an appearance (starts about 3:25, if you're in a hurry), but the whole thing is amazing. (The appearance of Epona on the field blew me away.) Thanks, Hypertrooper.
