We need to talk about the Wachowskis' new Netflix series, 'Sense8'

The Wachowskis’ upcoming Netflix series, Sense8, has flown under the radar for so long that you may be wondering, “What Wachowski Netflix series?”

Sense8 sounds ridiculously ambitious – which is precisely what you’d hope from the directors of Jupiter AscendingCloud Atlas and The Matrix. It’s a sci-fi epic, cowritten by the creator of Babylon 5, and it includes:

  • Live births. Andy Wachowski specified that they had filmed “babies coming out of vaginas.” Also, “crazy psychic orgies with all sorts of different bodies.”
  • A cast consisting of "a closeted Mexican telenovela hunk, an Icelandic party girl, a German safe-cracker, a Korean businesswoman, an African bus driver and a transgender American blogger.“ It was filmed Kenya, India, Mexico, Iceland, Britain, Germany and the U.S., with a main character from each country.
  • A Bollywood dance sequence choreographed by Longinus Fernandes (Slumdog Millionaire).
  • Scenes shot at San Francisco’s Pride Weekend, Dyke March, and the Fresh Meat festival of LGBT performance.
  • A sequence in Nairobi that required 700 extras, 200 cars, and a helicopter.

Obviously there’s no guarantee that Sense8 will be any good. But whatever happens, it won’t be boring.


The Blanket Of Geekery

So a couple of weeks ago, two of my very geeky and dearly beloved friends got married.

This is what I made them for a wedding present.

I’m here to let you know that you needed Babylon 5’s Londo and G'Kar drawn like Lisa Frank, because The 90’s.  (Even more Lisa Frank than the last time I did something like this two years ago!)

I hope you guys like this as much as I loved doing it~
