Andrew Kolb´s Space Oddity children´s book
“Have you ever listened to a song and your mind’s eye is immediately filled with visuals? David Bowie’s classic space epic is one such song for me. Every lyric paints such a vivid picture that I figured ‘Oh hey, I guess I’ll make that into a children’s book!’ Yes, I talk like this. Although I haven’t heard from Mr. Bowie (yet), why wait to share the full book?”

Children of the Stars
by James Neeley
This video of children ostensibly reacting to Darth Vader’s “I am your father” line is starting to make the rounds and needs to be nipped in the bud right now. I have children. This is not the way children react when they are surprised. This is the way children react when they have been told to make a surprise face after they hear the cue line. That’s not to say this doesn’t still have cuteness merit as a document of performing styles. Sister makes her face for a couple of seconds and then goes back to neutral couch mode. Brother starts with a glance at his parent to confirm that he has the cue right and then really commits. Somewhere, Whiteboard Girl smiles knowingly.
