October is sort of a special month for me. October, 2002, was when Serenity Rose first peeked out through her little webcomic window here on HSS. October, 2003, was when I got my first box of Serenity Rose comics. That same October I met Ami in person for the first time (first date: Bubba Ho-Tep). On October 31, 2007, I married her on a perfectly cold, rocky beach in Oregon. We’ve gone on a pilgrimage to the Haunted Mansion at Halloween-time every year since 2003.
October is AWESOME. Chilly air, Karloff on the TCM, pumpkin flavoring in every single thing I eat, I love it all.
A drop of ferrofluid is shaped by seven small circular magnets sitting beneath the glass and paper. Ferrofluids are made up of nanoscale ferromagnetic particles suspended in a carrier liquid. Under the influence of magnetic fields, they can take on fantastic shapes, including sharp-tipped droplets and labyrinthine mazes. This image is taken from the National Academy of Science’s book Convergence, focused on the intersection between science and art. (Photo credit: Felice Frankel)
Fucking magnets, THAT’S how they work.
Queer and Trans Tango ‘is a new way to dance Argentine tango free from traditional heteronormative codes.’ It is ‘simply an open form of Tango Argentino where roles are no longer defined by “male/leader” “female/follower” but by any form desired by the dancers. During the dance, leading and following roles can be interchanged but even – within the roles themselves, creative new approaches can be used to break the traditional steps.’ (from www.queertango.com/)

You should listen to all of their music because it rocks more than I can describe.
From year to year, the moon never seems to change. Craters and other formations appear to be permanent now, but the moon didn’t always look like this. Thanks to NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, we now have a better look at some of the moon’s history. Learn more in this video!
I think it’s time for the next few posts to be all about my childhood.
Oh my god are you kidding me. If this is just the Beta, I really want to see the full version. I just sat here spellbound for 25 minutes and I wasn’t even playing this game.
Ugh this is truly fantastic.
Oh my gosh this is beautiful!
The controls look as though they feel very fluid and intuitive, too…
The only words I have for this is “Oh my fucks.” I will give this game all my money if it encourages studios to get more artsy with their visual design.
Sign me the fuck up.
