I illustrated another map of the U.S for Slate!

A sweet for every state:

Some people have questioned me about a few of the choices on the map, but keep in mind, I didn’t write the article or make the choices! I just got hungry drawing it.

You can see my previous sports map here.



Levitating Speaker Is Like Your Own Bluetooth Audio Death Star

Using the now well-known idea of magnetic levitation, the OM/ONE speaker floats about an inch off its base, allowing the user to spin it around in mid-air while listening to the audio.

Don’t need it.

But I WANT it.

When spoken word artist Brenna Twohy tells you that she is an unabashed devotee of all things “Potterotica” — erotic fiction based in the magical universe of Harry Potter — your response probably shouldn’t be that her taste is “unrealistic.” 

Watch her full monologue here.

I’m happy to be getting to the point where I don’t have to feel weird about enjoying fanfiction, or having written a bunch of it. Partly it’s that the fandom experience has become more broadly shared. Partly it’s that I stopped giving a shit.

And as for why I like the porny sort of fanfiction, see above. She says it better.

I like sex with context. I like sex when it involves fully fleshed out characters. I like the backstories. I like feeling like these people do other things when they aren’t having sex.

Reblebbing for Rosalarian’s comment and to say this: I was actually embarrassed about my Smut Peddler submission for a while, because it featured two people who had backstories and were enthusiastic about sex. Because sex within context rather than BANGIN OUTA NOWHERE is a “feminine preference” and therefore “not real porn” and ugh fuck that mentality, fuck all of it forever

Shen Shaomin’s Beautiful And Terrifying Bone Sculptures

Bones automatically insinuate death, and often are the only physical remnant that insinuates life once existed. Shen Shaomin‘s bone works are equal parts terrifying and fascinating, man-made memorials to human intervention on the planet. Creatures that never have been or should be are pieced together from human and animal skeletons. The bones are carved and relief-carved with text taken from several sources, including the Bible, the Koran, and various sources. Inscribed in English, Arabic, and Chinese, the texts serve as warnings to the two largest industrial nations in the world of the damage being caused to the planet.
