If you weren’t able to attend last weekend’s UsedWigs Live ’10, check out the show intro, then print out all of these photos and make a flip book. It’s better than living your life in regret.

Todd “Eatagotchi” Marrone, Master of Mastication

Once again, I pitted my design skills and digestive system against childhood cancer. Five minutes and 60 wings later… I gained 3% body fat, the guy next to me regained his title, the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia’s Oncology Unit gained thousands of dollars and chickenkind lost hundreds of appendages.

Does anyone know how to get grease out of a sumo suit?


Video masterminds Kenjamin Franklin and Jandek Phil of the After School Specialists ( crafted a glorious little cartoon (literally) illustrating Russ’s love of spreadsheets. Harvested from a 2008 podcast and recently unveiled at UsedWigs LIVE ’10… enjoy Space Thunder Kids.

This month’s Socrates Café question:

“Does your name affect the course of your life?”

That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.

Is that a sword through your body or are you just happy to see me?

Ben Franklin Jr. High Art Club • Fargo, ND

“Hey Todd,

I just wanted to send you the pictures of the mural we did as a junior high art club project all the way here in Fargo, North Dakota. We got permission to do it on 2 4×8′ panels of plywood. Originally it was going to be much larger, but then we would have had to get permission from the district. We created a logo for our art club t-shirts and screen printed them this morning. Also, I shared your work with my art education professor who loved it and spread the word to his students. You are quite the inspiration. Thank you for letting us study you. Enjoy these photos.

Catie Miller”

Enjoy is an understatement.

Tempera & Paint Marker on Piggy Bank • Private Collection

If I had a nickel for everytime a student asked me to customize a giant piggy bank, I’d be able to play one fifth of a game of Pac-Man.
