The sign on the tent says “space”.

I’m not sure why there are aliens at the farmer’s market. Perhaps they just enjoy cucumbers.

Slenderman out promoting the upcoming Magritte exhibit at the Art Institute. Or possibly trying to blend into the sky to steal honey from bees.

After taking down the flimsy but graceful paper mâché giraffe, the Eastern Black Rhino feeds on its savory thin skin as its young watches dutifully.

What’s this fog business we’ve been having all week? I feel like I’m back in England.

Found at an art festival (that opened two hours prior) on a chalk board “graffiti” wall. So in two hours someone not only wrote this, but had their message found and extended by a second party. Truly we are mainstream.

Low points: Less legroom than a Greyhound bus.

Cecil Baldwin should really change his title from “The Voice of Night Vale” to “The Voice and Body Language Night Vale”. For the first minute of his performance it was really weird seeing my usual disembodied voice coming from someone standing on a stage reading off a script into a microphone, his voice just slightly altered due to being broadcast into a theater rather than recorded in a studio (or Fink’s basement or wherever they do it), and the view felt nearly unpleasant. Then he started acting along with his reading and it was just Cecil Palmer down there doing his show without a chair.

A short list of high points of Chicago WTNV Live Show, unspoilery until the cut:

Trying to figure who was cosplaying vs who just had an awesomely eccentric fashion sense and always dressed like that.

People belonging to both categories.

A member of Disparition accidentally coming out on stage before the musical guest was finished, making an amazing nopeface, and fleeing back behind the curtain to leave the musical guest baffled as to why everyone had started laughing.

The crowd going nuts at nothing more than a veiled reference to a certain underage leader of child vigilantes. Wondering how much is due to her role in the recent plot arc.

Audience participation.

A Hooded Figure lurking in one of the very back rows of the balcony seating.
