A Media Show quickie: my compatriots and I take on the phenomenon of “stocking.” For those unfamiliar it’s the practice of re-enacting your favorite overused stock photo cliches, like the cool kids over at Stocking Is the New Planking.
It’s a good thing our puppets always keep a few extra wigs stashed about the place for just such an occasion.

The Fifth of November, 1955
Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The scientist hanging a clock,
Who knew on that date,
That fortune and fate,
Would reveal so much more to the Doc.
Doc Brown, Doc Brown, he did invent
Such objects of folly, with good intent,
He tumbled and fell in his lavatory
But soon after took to his lab’ratory
For though he’d been woefully injur’ed
A vision unfurled in his bruis’ed head
Great Scott! Great Scott! From this disaster
Great Scott! Great Scott! The Flux Capac’tor!
And what did he do with it? Build it!
Archival ink on paper, 6x8”.
The original drawing is now owned by a private collector.
I’ve also done a reading of this poem on YouTube.

This is a quick five-minute doodle of everyone I’ve ever seriously dated, standing shoulder-to-shoulder, in no particular order, for no apparent reason. While some of you who know me might also know one or more of these individuals, I’m not naming names and will not comment on which squiggle is meant to be who (unless you are one of the squiggles, in which case feel free to ask me privately which one you are.)
No idea why I felt the need to get this out of my head and onto pixels, but I do know I’m grateful these individuals will probably never end up gathering in a group like this in real life. I’d be doomed. DOOMED.
The Mystery Science Theater 3000 seats, the most minimalist ASCII art I’ve ever done. Thanks, ISO-8859-1!

Stupid Twitter trick:
1) Crop an image down to 338x83px (or a multiple thereof.)
2) Slice it out into four 83x83px blocks with 2px gaps in between (or your multiple thereof.)
3) Tweet the images via Twitter’s internal photo-uploading gadget, from right-to-left.

We at The Media Show have LESS THAN TWO DAYS to raise $4K and change to make our next season happen. Unless we hit our fundraising goal on Kickstarter, we don’t get any of what we’ve raised already. Our starter needs some serious kicking!!
Every bit of help, even $5 if you can spare it, helps us out more than just giving us a fiver to work with; more traffic gets us on Kickstarter’s front page, more interest means more word-of-mouth, and word-of-mouth is quite literally the most valuable thing we could ask for.
Whether or not you can help us by pledging, your help spreading the word is also extremely essential, now more than ever. Every last repost, reblog, retweet, regurgitation, etc. keeps us going in our mission to demystify mysterious tech, uncover shadowy media practices, and interview luminaries from all aspects of our crazy world WITH SNARKY PUPPETS. Please, help us by spreading this link and the word about what we do and how you can help us do it.
We’ve been posting on our show’s site with all sorts of reasons we think this show is an important thing to do. It’s also exceedingly important to me personally; The Media Show is a labor of love for myself and my colleagues, and the ability to keep doing it would really be a dream come true.
So for all of you superheroes out there who like to wait until the last minute, this is the last minute. Please help us out all you can with your pledges, your support, your spreading of the word, and your awesomeness. We honestly cannot do any of this without you.
My homemade Tom Servo hanging out at the movies in 2004. This display seemed to catch his interest for some reason.
He’s a totally functional puppet, built out of most of the same parts as the MST3K crew used (or, where unavailable, fan-made replicas of same.) I’ll put up some clearer pics of him soonish.

My BFF Grey has a listing on the Internet Movie Database.
As you may know, if someone listed on IMDb wants to upload a photograph to their listing they need to buy a pro membership on the site. While I couldn’t do that for her, I did the next best thing: I redrew my Fairey-ish portrait of her in smileys, and posted it to her IMDb message board.
I can’t help but think the potential of message board smileys as an artistic medium has barely been scratched.
