Skeptic Art from Jill

Some of you who read Skepchick might remember Jill Powell, who was a contributor to the site for a long time. Jill’s schedule meant she had to leave regular contributing but she recently contacted us, wanting to help out. She’s creating a series of skeptical images that we’re using for various features and supplemental artwork on Skepchick. Check out a few of them below the fold ... »

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Only 45 days to Dragon*Con, which means only 44 days to the Atlanta Skeptics Charity Star Party for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!

Death by Puppets: Does it come with Aliens?!

Death by Puppets: Does it come with Aliens?!

The second short from Death by Puppets is live! Charlatans is a restaurant where there’s a lot of crap on the menu, and people eat it up! If you think the puppet of “Mr. Victim” looks familiar, it’s a puppet version of the amazing Len Peralta, who also did the Death by Puppets logo. Enjoy! This was one of our earlier shoots so we’re still a little rough around the edg... »

Death by Puppets Premieres: Support Group

I know I've been talking about this for months, up to the point where you all thought it was never going to happen, but YOU WERE WRONG! I'm very excited to announce the first video by our trans-atlantic puppet troupe, Death by Puppets, has arrived! It's a little rough around the edges and we've got a lot to learn (for the DbP drinking game, drink every time you see Maria's... »

Scott Sigler’s Nocturnal

Scott Sigler’s Nocturnal

Full disclosure: I love Scott Sigler. He's an incredibly talented writer whose work I have enjoyed for a long time, but he's also a good friend and I love spending time with him. So, when I was visiting San Francisco a couple of weeks ago and I had the chance to talk to him about his upcoming novel, Nocturnal, I leapt at the opportunity. A day or two before I left Atlanta, I asked him for ... »

Music, Puppets and Avocados with Marian Call

Music, Puppets and Avocados with Marian Call

I have a confession to make: Until about 3 weeks ago, I hadn't really heard much of Marian Call's music. I had heard of her, sure. I knew she was in the circle of incredibly talented musical geeks like Jonathan Coulton and Paul & Storm. I'd heard Phil Plait and Wil Wheaton rave about her talent. But I hadn't actually heard her music. There was something about a typewriter b... »

Something Fierce in Atlanta

Something Fierce in Atlanta

Next week, Atlanta is very lucky to be hosting singer-songwriter-geek musician Marian Call. If you’re in town, come check it out. We’ll also have a Mad Art Lab contingent there as our very own Surly Amy and Steve D are going to be coming into town for the show. I’ll be there as will a contingent of Atlanta Skeptics. Tickets are selling fast; they had to get a new venue a few week... »
