Blogging for Rape Crisis Centre; and Singing Zombie Puppets

Saturday 26 July, speculative fiction writer Shira Lipkin will be posting to her LiveJournal every half hour to raise money for the Boston Area Rape Crisis Centre. This is her 6th year participating in the blogathon. In the past, her short fiction entries have been urban fantasy, but this year she’s going SF, blogging as a xenoarchaeologist, discovering “artifacts” (donations from artists, which will be auctioned with a story card).

Puppeteer Matt Ficner has produced short videos featuring singing zombie puppets, including this one of “Dust in the Wind”. [via BoingBoing] Creepy!
