EBOLA! (…meningitis)

In which John is diagnosed with ebola by the Internet but turns out to be suffering from viral meningitis. How should we imagine novel diseases and how should we combat them? And why do we only focus on diseases that we fear will affect “us”? How does the way we imagine “us” shape the way we respond to disease outbreaks? Questions like that are examined while meningitis headaches are lamented.

WIN MY KIDNEY!
Not my actual Kidney. 
Danny Weinkauf has, for like 15 years, been the bassist for They Might Be Giants. He wrote their song “I’m a Paleontologist" which you may have heard…he’s also won two grammies and written and produced music for dozens of TV shows. So when he was like "Hey, I’m doing a children’s album, do  you want to write a song with me?" I was like "GHGHHFHFHHDHWWW!"
So, together we wrote “The Kidney That Lived in Four People" which is the (semi) true story of a Kidney that existed inside of four different bodies (so far). The names have been changed, everything else is true.
A couple weeks ago, we decided it would be cool to hold a little contest.
So, for all filmmakers, animators, artists, and etc…if you’d like to create a music video for the song, the winner (as selected by us) and three runners up will win this very nice Kidney model signed by me and Danny. The top submission will have their video posted on Hankschannel and Danny’s YouTube channel. 
You can get Danny’s full album “No School Today” on Amazon and iTunes and most other places where music comes from.
Full information on the contest is here.

So i got this Tattoo on Esther Day with my friend Jill. We had just been at LeakyCon for 5 days which was amazing. We had cried together at midnight at Esther’s ball (which was an awesome experience, even if many tears were involved. many hugs were involved too. and so. much. love.)
I wanted something to honor both Esther and the amazing community that we both love. I admire the person Esther was so much and it’s not fair that she only got 16 years but damn, she made the best out of the 16 years didn’t she? <3
