I Took The Greatest Risk In My Life And Became A Tattoo Artist

In a piece over at Vanity Fair, Gwendoline Christie models a Captain Phasma-inspired dress designed by Giles Deacon. In this video, you see her getting into photoshoot mode and talking about Phasma as a progressive female character.

Patrick Rothfuss always has the best AMA threads.  In this thread, it is suggested that he adapt A Slow Regard of Silent Things into a video game.

This week is Art Basel Miami Beach -- the United States' leg of the three-city Art Basel art fair, at which "267 leading galleries from North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa show significant work from the masters of Modern and contemporary art, as well the new generation of emerging stars." Also in attendance will be scores or hundreds of exceptionally well-heeled art collectors, plus three US presidential apsirants.  With so much significant art for sale (last year's offering was about $3 Billion worth), and so many significant deep pockets, it is perhaps unsurprising that the art fair has also attracted presidential candidates with their own expressions to vend. Jeb! Bush's campaign will host an event called "Pop Art, Politics & Jeb" and Hillary Clinton and Martin O'Malley will also be hosting fundraising events during the fair.  If you happen to be in town during the fair, don't miss these can't miss exhibition booths, and these can't miss shows and events, but don't even try to get into these parties. And if you're looking to buy a little something for yourself this holiday season, here's the full list of exhibitors.
