This was our first video for the serial, and the typical accusations that it's sexist, trivializing, and just plain a "guy thing" are not entirely unfounded. We think it's fun. So there.
THE "NPR" VIDEO
Perhaps we over-reacted to comments on the first video: this is our "all things considered" vid, with science and philosophy and wisdom and above all, no hooters.
THE ACTUAL MAYAN STINGER
We wanted a shorty for certain purposes--and to demonstrate that we actually do know the difference between the Mayan and Aztec calendars. This one has hooters, but they aren't carved in stone. Oh, wait... they are carved in stone... but tastefully. The conch solo is an actual conch solo by experimental jazz maestro Steve Turre.
THE SKELETON NUMBER
This isn't a "trailer": it's an actual piece of the narrative in the ebook. The skeletons are from photographs taken in Perico's restaurant in downtown Cancun. We just tossed it in here for all the shroom fans.
