WikiLeaks Rains On Clinton’s Parade: Were Your Details in Leaked Emails?

hillary-email-wikileaks

What is it with Hillary Clinton and emails? The week where she is formally nominated as the first female presidential candidate of a major US political party should be an opportunity for everyone (including the supporters of Bernie Sanders) to put the past behind them, and work together to defeat Donald “Skeletor” Trump, and his new BFF, Mike Pence. But WikiLeaks put a stop to that wishful thinking by suddenly dumping 20,000 Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails online for all to see. It didn’t paint many people in a very good light, and it vindicated Sanders’ complaints of a rigged process. The hack has already claimed the…

Rock On: Girl Scouts of America Join Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade – Get it? Rock? Cause it’s kind of rock climbing themed.

shutterstock_404575648

This year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will see the Girl Scouts of America riding their own float in the parade. It’ll be themed after rock climbing, with girls climbing over 3D-printed objects, belayed by their fellow Girl Scouts. The press release goes into more detail:

On the float, girls will be “building a better world” by climbing and belaying on giant 3-D puzzle pieces that form a globe, using levers to connect the pieces. The float’s features and activities represent what Girl Scouts past and present have done and continue to do as they take action locally and globally. From discovering new things and participating in outdoor adventures to developing entrepreneurship skills and exploring science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), Girl Scouts are taking the lead to positively impact our world.

We’re positively stoked at the idea and the theme of the float. The Girl Scouts are absolutely doing their best to “build a better world,” at least according to the coverage they’ve been getting on news media over the past year or so. There’s a hell of a lot to love about the Girl Scouts, and their recognition in one of America’s longest holiday traditions makes that even more apparent. The thought that the Girl Scouts have their very own float that’ll be shown in living rooms across America is nothing short of heartwarming.

If you want to see some concept art of what the float is going to look like, you should head on over to Jezebel to check it out.

Rock on, Scouts.

Ride ’em Cowboy Dog Costumes

FMOTILSINM7I4IG.SMALL.jpgMy kennel club had an entry in an upcoming parade, and I was thinking of an interesting way to costume my dogs while still leaving them mobile enough to march in the parade. My idea was to mount an action figure on the dogs’ harnesses to make it look as though the dogs were being ridden like horses…
