However, many TV fans have been discussing "The Sopranos" recent success in topping the Writer's Guild of America’s "101 Best Written TV Series" list.

Module R Blog Francis Bitonti is pushing the boundaries of 3D printed fashion with his Bristle Dress, a look-at-me-now skirt that you can print at home. And given that you probably can’t ever sit down without crushing it that’s probably about as far as you’ll want to go with it on. Leaving details like this aside, this design tour de force is one more example of where creative 3D printing can go when the imagination is unfettered by the weight of convention.
