Hey, long-time fazer/lurker here doing a short film project down in Gallup, NM. It's based on Navajo mythology, but with a big injection of comic-book/superhero action movie styling, giant stop-motion monsters (think J.Carpenter's 'The Thing'), kickass girl-monster-slayer shooting lightning arrows, and aerial cinematography. Check it out!

As of today, I've continued this practice every day for three years of elementary school, which now also includes a year of kindergarten doodles for my second son. To date, I have drawn more than 800 lunchbox doodles, and have posted nearly 200 funny poems to go with them."

11-year-old Caine Smith was choked, beaten, harassed, and was called a long list of names simply because he had two moms and long hair. Instead of staying locked away and hiding, he stood up and did something about it.

In what may be one of the most eye-catching recent symbols of the spirit of Earth Day in the green building movement, a new apartment complex in Hamburg, Germany, has opened with two unique green walls.
