Creator of the Vampire Birdbath Identified
Remember me talking about this cool sculpture that I saw online, the one that sorta looked like a vampiric birdbath? I asked if any of you fine folks out there could identify the sculptor, and one of you fine folks did! Thanks to NomenJewelry, we now can announce that the artist of the sculpture is Mr. Frank Ippolito. Check out some more of his work here.
For all the lousy stuff it has brought us—and spending two minutes on any social media service ought to be enough to drive that home for you, if it needs to be driven home, which it doesn’t if you have been paying attention—the Internet is a pretty awesome thing, overall. We have to take the good with the bad, but there’s a lot more of the good than the other, I think. For one thing, I have this job, here, because of the Internet, and I dig on getting paid. And the Internet allows us to discover cool things like the aforementioned sculpture, and the artist who created it. That’s a good tradeoff for having no kind of filtration system for people to post whatever they want (and the people whose words have the least value are always, ALWAYS, the most eager to say them) and allowing anti-vaccers, flat-earthers, and Bronies to find each other. But I digress.
Thanks to NomenJewelry for the assist!
