Just thought this was a neato thing–found through stellar blog Boing-Boing: many of Houdini’s writings are now available through Google Books. Cool stuff. ~Jenn
Here’s another levitating choke from stage combat with Jenn. This time, it’s from today’s Club meeting. And this time, there’s no wall involved. Nice work, Tracy and Nate! ~Jenn
Got a beefy plug on One Big Bad Wolf today. Nice. Good post, too. Thanks Brady.

This was my theme for the day at a conference at DU. I showed several of the MSCD Stage Combat Club’s podcasts and discussed how one can use technology to teach creative topics, especially online. That’s what I did during the day. In the evening, I judged a martial arts test. And it was awesome. ~Jenn
Interested in the missing links in Assassin’s Creed II? Here’s a trailer for one of the recent DLC releases.
Since of course all you lovely lurkers out there have multiple copies of my book and read it every day, I thought it’d be fun for you to see some of the photos that didn’t make it into the book, but came close. Enjoy! ~Jenn
The ultimate of nerdy conundrums was (sort of) answered recently at the Star Trek Convention–found this post through stellar blog i09. Of course, the question is: who would win in a fight, Captain Kirk or Captain Picard? The article reports that, though both Stewart and Shatner were there at the con, no fighting tests actually ensued. In fact, it was decided that:
“…no captains of the same fleet would ever, EVER, fight one another. In the world of Star Trek, according to sources, Captain Picard and Captain Kirk aren’t competitors, and no such competition should be encouraged.”

This week is the 165th anniversary of Poe’s poem “The Raven.” I did not know this. If I had, I would have used that photo of me performing it for this post instead of the Poe’s birthday one. But that’s okay. Check out this post by brain-teasing blog Mental Floss which has some facts I did not know about the famous poem. Nevermore. ~Jenn
