Budget sociology – Learning about societies through stupid videos.

Look to your left. What do you see there? Is it a bookcase, a television, a checkout line? Odds are what you see there tells something about you and your values. Sociology is the study of societies. How people interact with each other. What they value. One low budget way to learn a bit about … Continue reading

Collaborative Art – The Phenomenon of Call and Response Videos

by Rosalyn Hunter This week I watched the Youtube music awards . A chaotic and someone uneven affair with alternating moments of exhilaration and lameness. But watching the show brought to mind how much more collaborative the world is now than it was in the past. In the audience of the show, dozens of people … Continue reading

How to name a Sith Lord

Darth Vader is the iconic Sith Lord. It is pretty obvious that his name comes from the prefix DARTH which is a common Sith title and VADER which is a short form of INVADER, which he is. Therefore the best way to name a Sith Lord is to find a word starting with “in” and … Continue reading

When Poems go Horribly Wrong # 3 – Equinox moon

As it sets on the equinox, The half-moon glows orange, like one of those dorito taco things, only upside down.

Listen to my work!

Maybe you’re more of a podcasting kind of person. This is an audio recording of a very small part of the Lunatics “Earth” Script. An artist comes to the colony to film an eclipse.

Support this, and this Christmas (or thereabouts) enjoy a beautifully 2D animated cute … Continue reading

I’ve got hope! Lunatic web series pilot kickstart begins

WOW, what a day, and night. I just launched my largest kickstarter campaign yet! You see, the economy is weird, and people say that their isn’t a way to get a fair break in this world, and that writers will never be paid for their work. I want to prove them wrong. I had an … Continue reading

Making my own fun – Lunatics Voices Cast

Last year my husband and I decided to stop waiting and start doing, and the story about a few wacky Space enthusiasts that I had been tossing around since 2005 became our animated kickstarter-funded project LUNATICS. So I’d like to announce a major milestone. We have cast actors to do the voices to illustrate the … Continue reading

Watching Menswear Fashion Shows

I bite my finger as I watch them strut. One man in the crowd turns to watch his butt. A long white coat and then a flash of green, in pants so tight they almost seem obscene. And as I watch, I wonder why I care, for clothes I’ll never buy and never wear. Watching … Continue reading

Refuse me

Refuse me. Words that I saw printed on a bag. Why does the bag feel the need to tell me its inadequacies? Who makes a bag with low self esteem? When I think of the words “refuse me”, it conjures feelings of sacrifice. “Honey, I’m no good for you. Refuse me.” Feelings of self-pity… “Go … Continue reading
