For reasons that have only been vaguely alluded to as yet, this year's 12 started a few months later than usual, and as a result 12.6 has spent the first 2 months working entirely on Wordstock. We were given the brief exactly 3 days after we started school, with around 75 days till the actual event.
In a little over two months, we crammed a lot of learning into a short period of time, a lot of ideas into a lot of presentation decks, a lot of food puns onto buttons, a lot of it into wordholes. And hopefully in the end, we will succeed in cramming a lot of literary omnivores into the Oregon Convention Center.
In between moments, in the"interstitial spaces," we've managed to have some laughs, make some stuff, and get taped saying a lot of stupid crap. Here's a quick sampling:

And then Mike was born and we celebrated.
"Hey, remember when Mike was from the future?" "No."
Trying not to be creeped out that Ris is dressed like a woman at his photo shoot.
