So, so lazy…

I am a lazy blogger, I am a lazy blogger…however, two new things coming up.

1. Mitosis – a manufacturing company based in the South Side of Pittsburgh, with its first offering, the Equus Evolution Kit, a multi-modal learning tool the helps high school teachers demonstrate the principles of evolution through 50 million years of changes to the horse foot. The kit is amazing, developed by Jason Bannister of Mechanimal, with assistance from Duquesne University…we’ve been selling them already, and I’ll have some pictures up very soon, as well as some info for interested science and biology teachers…very, very cool…

2. A puppet version of Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl…not for sale, simply to create video content that will teach good citizens everyone how civic politics works…you should see the forehead…


Thanks for the patience, love y’all….

P.S. Congrats again, Tim and Andi!!!!!


More Southside 412…

And: more from Vin and Jay: Southside 412 Episode 2 featuring all the art you can handle from the likes of John Ross and Bill Wessel. If you’ve spent any time hanging around the South Side, you should spend a little time getting to know the people who’ve been making it great for years…to be continued, but for the interested, subscribe to Southside 412’s Youtube channel:

Southside 412

Okay, so I’m really late on this one (Sorry Vin and Jay) but here’s the first episode of Southside 412 featuring all kinds of Southside Madness during the Ides of March March…Keep an eye out for Slacker Joe and Phat Man Dee – two more of my favorite people from the South Side of town.

Chabon and Sedaris in Pgh

Every once in a while, Pittsburgh attracts talent who actually come back and visit and what not. Michael Chabon, Pulitizer Prize winner for The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, will be at Joseph Beth Booksellers at the South Side Works on Friday, May 2nd at 7pm, signing the paperback of his The Yiddish Policemen’s Union. Ordinary peeps can get tickets starting April 28th. I saw Mr. Chabon at the Waldorf a few years back, amongst a great group of authors and speakers (Peter Jennings, Alice Sebold), and he just blew me away. It’s great when such a talented individual is so down to earth, and it will be nice to see him again…Plus, he has some history in the Burgh, if you didn’t know.


Also, David Sedaris, as well as brilliant person and funny as hell, is at Joseph Beth’s on June 8th at 2pm. (Check out the J. Beth’s Blog for updates.)
