Sea Monsters Splashes into Bryan-Gooding Planetarium at MOSH!

Sea Monsters Splashes into Bryan-Gooding Planetarium at MOSH!

National Geographic’s giant-screen film Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure premieres at the Bryan-Gooding Planetarium June 11 in conjunction with the opening of the Museum of Science & History’s summer exhibit, Savage Ancient Seas: Dinosaurs of the Deep.  The film brings to life the extraordinary marine reptiles of the dinosaur age. From the giraffe-necked Styxosaurus and 20-foot “bulldog” fish Xiphactinus to the T-Rex of the ocean — the 40-foot super-predator Tylosaurus — these wondrous beasts defy imagination.

Kickstarter.com embraced by 'Fit For Rivals' for album funding

I just saw that local band 'Fit For Rivals' started a Kickstarter page to help fund the production for their next album. While I am new to their music, I can say they sound good and that it's awesome they took the web to keep it alive.

'SUNBEARS!' as you may know did and overreached their pledged goal of $8,000 with $9,555. I would love this idea to be applied to other local bands or projects that maybe aren't even well known. Embrace what resources you can!

If you wanted to help back the album you have about a month to do so in this way.
