Unthinkable Mind Student, Natalie DeCheck [AKA Brain Stem] with her book in the form of a board game. She’s graduating this week with a major in both genetics and creative writing.
Students in The Unthinkable Mind wrote over 40,000 words this semester, by hand, and drew hundreds of pictures, but everyone in the class knows that Natalie went beyond all expectations, and this is why Professor Old Skull has crowned her class valedictorian. Because. She. Is. AWESOME.

Richard Phillips Feynman was an American physicist known for the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics and the physics of the super fluidity of super cooled liquid helium, as well as work in particle physics (he proposed the Parton model). For his contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics, Feynman was a joint recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965, together with Julian Schwinger and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga. Feynman developed a widely used pictorial representation scheme for the mathematical expressions governing the behavior of subatomic particles, which later became known as Feynman diagrams
BEFORE YOU PRESS PLAY HEED THIS WARNING If you already suspect that a video that features an Oberlin student rapping about masturbation might be offensive to sensitive souls, and you feel you have one, do not click play.
Here is a happy song about chronic masturbation by one of The Near-Sighted Monkey’s Oberlin God-Student cartoonists Sam Szabo. Other god-students and members of the Oberlin Comics Collective are in this video as well and Auntie Monkey-Glasses is so glad to see them supporting their cartoonist brother in his musical time of need.
I am very proud and very ashamed to present the new music video from my shame-rap masterpiece, “The Chronic Masturbator.” Directed by Gabe Freed and Max Mueller. Not for the faint of heart. Musical psychotherapy for the soul.
Unthinkable Mind Student Medulla Oblongata / Jake Kelley’s final project, an illustrated story written by hand in tiny letters on one large sheet of paper. The book comes with a large magnifying glass. The story made Professor Old Skull cry.

Who are the students in The Unthinkable Mind? Here they are posing with Professor Old Skull and all of the composition notebooks they filled this semester. Missing are classmates Pons, Spinal Cord and Corpus Callosum.
Here are some of the illustrations Brain Stem was working on during The Unthinkable Mind Studio Hours on Saturday and Sunday. Professor Old Skull is a huge fan of Brain Stem’s drawings. She’s about to graduate, majoring in Genetics and Creative Writing.
Take your time. Dig it, man.Professor’s Choice and Professor Old Skull chooses Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry singing “Chicken Scratch”
This one goes out to all The Unthinkable Mind students out there who are working on finishing their final projects. Freaking out about your final project? Why not come over and freak back in during Studio Hours!
