Jesse “Madman” Manson decided to live out his fantasy by starting an underground Professional Wrestling league in the backyards of Spokane, Washington.

Real Stories


Lifenaut.com promises its users a chance to become technologically immortal. Users can upload photos, videos, love letters, genetic code, and other documents in the hope that future civilizations will have the technology to reconstruct their consciousness based on this information and upload their mind to an electronic body. When Linda’s husband passed away she created “mindfiles” for them so that they could one day be together in a different form. Composed of found “mindfile” footage, file_me_away is an experimental science fiction meditation on the desire to transcend one’s body and the razor-thin line between the ability of technology to improve human life or to catastrophically change society forever.
