So, way, way, WAY back in Episode 8, we here at To-Ag Studios talked Heroes and Villains.  Seeing as the Monkeys still had their podcasting training wheels on, we approached two very broad and interesting topics with the reckless abandon of Hulk and Wolverine on a bender.  So now, 68 weeks later, we have reconvened our Monkey council in order to once again discuss the hero figure and why we love them.  Draw down your cowls, make some therapy appointments, and get your butt out of retirement as were headed for round 2 to discuss Heroes (NOT the show) on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!

Princess Leia, out of all the female influences in my childhood, had to be the one I looked up to the most. She is strong, confident, and beautiful.

Día de los Muertos… In a Galaxy Far, Far Away

Imperial Trio by John Karpinsky, $30

It seems that Día de los Muertos has steadily been growing in popularity over the last few years and with good reason.  The holiday is both merry and macabre, a celebration of the dead by the living.  It’s a beautiful sentiment marked by beautiful art.

The huge “Disney buys LucasFilms” news this week inspired me to search out the raddest Día de los Muertos:  Star Wars Edition I could find.  My search stopped the moment I laid eyes on John Karpinsky‘s work.  Click through to see his amazing art.   Continue reading
