What was that series called? I remember the art, but not the stories. Something about The Dark?

Looks like "Seventh Son" mashed up with "Sorcerer's Apprentice."

video has pulsating / alternating colors

Every bit of this is hokey as shit, and you'll swear it's about to be some dumb joke.
But, if you do the thing (on a smartphone, full screen at least) it'll be kinda cool when you look away.
Never seen a visual trick quite like this one before

If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on Harry Potter's face, forever.

Every soup ladled to the hungry, every blanket draped over the cold signifies, in the final sense, a theft from my gigantic paycheck.

I'm still a little skeptical that this is actually "reintroduction of the aurochs" so much as it is "introduction of a brand new kind of cow that is genetically somewhat similar to what we think the aurochs was", but still, it's pretty neat.

Bonus:  The Biblical references to a unicorn is sometimes claimed to be a mis-translation of whatever the Hebrew word was for auroch.
