  3. Woman Uses GoDaddy Super Bowl Commercial To Quit Her Engineering Job And Do Puppetry Full Time

    Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

    Full disclosure: I didn't watch the Super Bowl. That being said, I am doing a bit of catching up on the commercials to spin out of it. You might be familiar with web hosting company GoDaddy's usual approach to marketing. Turns out, they decided to go in a different direction this year. And it's surprisingly positive.

  4. How Do You Make Chris Hadfield’s “Space Oddity” Cover Better? By Adding Puppets [Video]

    The important thing to remember is that we are ALL Ground Control.

    Mario and Fafa of the popular YouTube series "Glove and Boots" wanted to sing with Commander Chris Hadfield in space, so they did the next best thing: tape over that time Chris Hadfield did it himself last year and add some kickin' harmonies. Of course, we should point out that Mario and Fafa also happen to be puppets. That's probably important.

    it's time to play the music

    Gotta be honest, I wasn't one hundred percent sold on puppet Wolverine, brought to you by the same guys who explained Joseph Campbell's monomyth through puppets, for the first minute or so of this video. But then he started singing a version of "The Music of the Night" from The Phantom of the Opera about all the different teams he's fought on. That's when it got me.

  8. Joseph Campbell’s Monomyth Theory… As Explained by Puppets [VIDEO]

    Okay You Primitive Screwheads

    Are you familiar with Joseph Cambell's monomyth theory, a.k.a. "The Hero's Journey," as described in his landmark mythology text The Hero's with a Thousand Faces? The basic idea is that the same character types and plot beats repeat themselves in story after story. It could be Star Wars or Happy Gilmore: The hero's journey is there. If you're still a little shaky, or if you need a refresher course... or, heck, if you just like puppets and/or mythology, Fafa the Groundhog and Mario of Glove and Boots are here to explain it to you by acting out scenes from Harry Potter, The Hobbit, The Wizard of Oz, and more.

    This creepy little monster was made by Deviantart user Pandacatification.

    The new episode of Alisa Stern's Doctor Puppet is both dramatic and disgustingly (in a good way) cute.
