Mad Quickies: MAL and Skepchick at CONvergence, World’s Oldest Erotic Graffiti, Photo Paper Exposed to Fireworks and More!
It’s Monday and there’s nothing I can do about that. But I can treat you to some fantastic things I’ve stumbled across over the weekend. Because I love you.
This past weekend was CONvergence which means it was also SkepchickCON! A whole bunch of Lab writers and Skepchicks were there and The Escapist has some coverage, including two fabulous cosplay slideshows, here and here, featuring some people you may recognize. And, BONUS, the photos were taken by Skepchick’s own Jamie Bernstein.
Authors draw their own self-portraits, talk about private vs. public persona.
Whoa, hold the phone. A Henson and Froud short film! Yep. Heather Henson and Toby Froud have combined their powers and created a puppet-ful 15 minute short called Lessons Learned. Clip below.
Here’s more topographic and geologic furniture for you.
Found: The world’s earliest erotic graffiti. I know you were looking for it, so…
This is what happened when photographer Ross Sonnenberg exposed photo paper directly to fireworks… in his garage.
