Last weekend, French art group La Machine (previously) staged a spectacular performance in Beijing with two of the group’s gigantic kinetic sculptures, a spider known as La Princesse, and Long Ma, a fire-breathing horse-dragon. The performance, entitled Long Ma, Spirit of the Dragon Horse, marked the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between France and China. The Atlantic has an excellent photo gallery of the event. Back in September, we posted about the French premiere of Long Ma.

I think this video might interest you guys.

4 days ago, Olivia Olson confirmed that Marceline and Bonnibel have dated before. The reason it has been confirmed is because the new Adventure Time book coming out soon may have details on their relationship, and their relationship obviously can’t be aired on TV because some states of America (and countries in the world) are against same-sex marriage and relationships. 

But yeah, they have indeed dated before.

Can we also talk about official Bubbline art drawn by Natasha Allgeri, former character designer and story board artist for Adventure Time, and now Showrunner of Bee and Puppy Cat!?

An interesting take, Harley being a long for the ride and using the Joker.

‘Ingress’, An Augmented-Reality Game About Mysterious Energy Sources by Google’s Niantic Labs

by Rollin Bishop

Ingress is an augmented-reality game by Google’s Niantic Labs that focuses on the control and manipulation of “mysterious energy sources” at landmarks, public art, and similar locations. Players are split between two factions — “The Enlightened” that want to embrace this energy, and “The Resistance” that wants to safeguard humanity from it — and must work together to accomplish more difficult tasks that can’t be accomplished alone.

Ingress initially released on Android in 2013, and is now available on iOS.

A mysterious energy has been unearthed by a team of scientists in Europe. The origin and purpose of this force is unknown, but some researchers believe it is influencing the way we think. We must control it or it will control us.

‘Lessons Learned’, A Live-Action Puppet Film Directed by the Man That Played the Baby in Jim Henson’s ‘Labyrinth’

by Brian Heater
Christopher Lantz

Guh, I think I just jizzed mah pants.

“Lessons Learned” is a short live-action puppet film directed by puppeteer Toby Froud, son of The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth designers Brian and Wendy Froud, who also played the kidnapped child Toby in Jim Henson’s Labyrinth. The short, which is executive produced by IBEX Puppetry creative director Heather Henson, follows the story of a young boy who is transported to a fantasy world.

Froud, who worked as a puppeteer on ParaNorman, spoke to The Portland Monthly Mag about his lifelong history with puppets during the short’s June 2014 premier.

I have vivid memories of goblins’ faces and strange creatures and chaos around me that could just be from growing up in the house I lived in, or from seeing the film as many times as I have, or it could be remembering the puppets that were in front of me. I’m not sure.
