Freakshow and Tell Posters

Freakshow and Tell Posters

A year or so ago, MAL’s Beth introduced our local skeptics group to Thom Britton and his show, Freakshow and Tell. That night during his show, he asked me to stand on his head while he was lying on a pile of broken glass. Not the absolute weirdest way I’ve ever spent a Friday night, but close. Thom is a mix of the Jim Rose Circus and Bill Nye. He performs a number of classic freakshow ... »

Birds and Butterfly, drawing by Francis Darwin

Art Inquisition: So Good It’s Fridge Worthy… Now What?

This one’s for all you parents. As a child, the budding young botanist Francis Darwin, son of one Mr. Charles Robert Darwin, seems to have tried a bit of drawing. A fine work, The Battle of the Fruit and Vegetable Soldiers, is to be found gracing the reverse of one of only 28 pages of original manuscript known to exist from On the Origin of  Species. Francis’ work, and its obverse, wer... »

Hello all! Sorry for the lateness of Drabble Lab this round; I am on vacation and foolishly messed up sending the winner out to Brian, who was illustrating. But oh man, there was some great stuff last round! »

FACE OFF: Skull-A-Day v. Street Anatomy Gallery Show at the IMSS

FACE OFF: Skull-A-Day v. Street Anatomy Gallery Show at the IMSS

I attended the opening to this ongoing show on May 31st (Skull Appreciation Day!). It runs at the International Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago until August 25th. As I have mentioned in the past, this is a really cool location in its own right and has at least a painting and a statue devoted to skeptical hero Ignaz Semmelweis. Here he is telling med students to WASH THEIR DAMN HANDS after di... »
