HOSTP Art: “Panda-stic Concert” by Milena Briceño

How in the world do you coax giant pandas into the back of a shuttlecraft? Apparently, by mesmerizing them with music. Of course, the little one looks like he knows better than to trust this guy, but the other pandas seem impressed with… well, let’s face it, Prodo-1’s interpretive dance. This piece is one of

My powers of articulation fail me, so I’ll just read the transcript of the little man upstairs in my head that’s been doing cartwheels for 48 hours. “HolyshitholyshitholyshitholyshitholyshitholyshitAWWYEEEAHholyshitholyshitholyshit…” Actually, it goes on like that for twelve pages. And that was just the first day. I’ll spare

HOSTP-Still-Backing

It’s Slacker-Backer Time!

So if you hadn’t noticed, we made it to about 300% of our initial goal on Kickstarter! But now what? Well, until we get all the goodies assembled we can still take backers who may have missed the month-long campaign. The Kickstartering (that’s a word, dammit) may be over, but thanks to the miracle of

A First Look at Mad Oak Studios

I believe in the same rule that Alton Brown has for homebrew supply stores: If it looks slick and well-decorated, you probably don’t want to be there. Mad Oak Studios just moved to a new building in Allston, MA, so when I headed there to scope the place out in person, it took me twenty
