Cool Thing Thursday No. 3
Paton wins again! Last night on The Citadel Cafe, Paton’s pick once again made it to the top of the list. Check out these fun anamorphic illusions by Brusspup.
This week’s Starcrossed comic is on it’s way. In the mean time, don’t miss the latest episode of The Citadel Cafe with myself, Paton Francis, and Pigmonkey from the Geek’s Versus Nerds podcast. We talk super humans, super sci-fi and super reading for your night stand.
A new episode records tomorrow (Wednesday) night live right here on StarcrossedOnline.com[audio:http://media.blubrry.com/thecitadelcafe/www.thecitadelcafe.com/wp-content/uploads/tccaudio/The_Citadel_Cafe_043_Camera_Shy_Stormtroopers.mp3]
Last night on The Citadel Cafe, Paton shared more stop motion tips and tricks. I would be a lump of coral if I didn’t share this trailer for the upcoming Sponge Bob Square Pants Christmas Special. To all of my American readers, Happy Thanksgiving! Safe travels and whatever you do, stay away from the Jerktonium.
Last night I filled in for Jocelyn and hung out with my buddy Ryan on their super-fun gaming podcast, The Gamer’s Inn. Visit their website to take part in their online gaming community and subscribe to The Gamer’s Inn on iTunes to make sure you’re always up to date.
Wait… there’s more! The Gamer’s Inn is also a video podcast broadcast live via Google+ Hangouts On Air. Here’s the video from last night.
A special shout out to my buddy Jules Faulkner for the fun feature in her comic today! Recognize any if the parade balloons?
If you’re not already reading Promises Promises I highly recommend you stop what you’re doing (even if it’s a workout) and go check it out.

Near the end of every episode of The Citadel Cafe myself and my co-hosts share some cool things we’ve spied online over the week. I thought a fun way to pass that along with Starcrossed readers would be to pass on one of those internet picks here on the blog. I’m dubbing it Cool Thing Thursday. Mainly because The Citadel Cafe records on Wednesday nights so I know I’ll always have something to share!
This week’s cool thing goes to Paton who shared a link to an article and several photos of Matthew Albanese’s work. Albanese builds and photographs miniature environments repurposing what most of us would consider pretty every day stuff. Combined with some stellar photography, the results speak for themselves.

I will be doing lots of these artist edition sketches in pre-order books this month. So, I thought I’d share a look at what folks can expect. Although the general recording quality was much lower than I had hoped - Apologies for that. - The final drawing is still clear. Enjoy!
