Conal Cochran's Speech

Re-re-re-post, but it's great.
I wish I worked for Conal Cochran.  I bet St. Patrick's Day at his house is amazing (assuming he'd invite me).

Jim Henson's Creature Shop Challenge

A Face Off-like series on SyFy with a Henson spin to it.  Premieres on March 25th.
Been loving Face Off this season, so I hope this is more of the same.  And it has a Halloween prop feel to it.

Stealth Lights

Saw these on

Rather than using those small silver disc batteries that don't last very long, they've been adapted to use AAA batteries.  A great idea.
They were used in this display:

I used two green ones for this photoshoot (but with the smaller batteries):
