I made this short little video for work way back, just in time for Halloween:
Here’s a very special witch’s brew to enjoy this Halloween … the brew that brought us life. #HappyHalloween from CLEVER Planets@RiceEarthSci @RiceUniversity @RiceSpace @RicePhysAstro pic.twitter.com/fW6LwJk7YF

I spent the week leading up to Halloween feverishly focused on it, wanting to get it done in time. It’s haunted house-themed, and it describes the premise of CLEVER Planets research in a Halloween-flavored nutshell.
Unfortunately, as you can see, it didn’t really get a lot of views or re-tweets or anything. It felt like a bummer, because I spent a lot of time on it; but the pay-off was all limited to one day (unless I tweet it again next year); and so it felt like it was a waste of time.
I had been planning to make a model of Olaf the snowman from Frozen and use him for a winter-themed animation about CLEVER Planets research … but for now, I have decided to tread carefully around seasonal themes and avoid them.
