Mary Wollstonecraft seeing her statue for the first time – Susan Harrison sums it up for everybody.

Terrifying Aliens – Cool SFIA video about aliens who are somewhat less benign than E.T. (Hat tip to Bruno)

Happy – A new song by Danny Elfman. (Warning: There are flashing lights in the video.)

Five Amazing But Sadly Forgotten Animated Halloween Specials! – I remember watching a nonzero number of these, but even I somehow missed the Scrabble one. (Hat tip to Pixel Pixie)

Knit a Jackalope – It’d be easy enough to add wings if you wanted a Wolpertinger instead.

1 like = 1 British candy Amusing Twitter thread.

Victorian Farm – MeFi thread about the BBC series Victorian Farm and several similar documentaries about modern people living as though they were in some past historical period, using only the technology and materials which would have been available at the time. (Hat tip to Bruno)

Animal X-rays – The Oregon Zoo did a fun thread of the spooky scary skeletons that live inside some of their animals. Looking at a beaver’s tail, you just know that a lot of dinosaur reconstructions are wrong.

    That Danny Elfman song could be the 2020 anthem.

    Arthur has a whole series of alien encounter videos on YouTube. All are worth checking out

    They forgot the classic “Halloween is Grinch Night” which I think you can find it on Youtube

    I loved Victorian/Edwardian Farm. Such a happy, wholesome show. It didn’t feel like they were living fulltime on site in some of the later series and I wasn’t quite as keen on those, but the early ones were fab.

    Not fab? That statue. What an utter shambles.
