Marina Yamkoskaia: The Owls That Fooled the Internet

Posted in craft, plush, you can't handle the cute with tags , , on February 10, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

A few weeks ago, I posted these adorable little creatures in a Desktop Goodies roundup.

A helpful reader linked me to the Snopes article debunking the claim that these are indeed real animals (my sources said they were, and in this case I didn’t do any further research! I wanted to believe!).

These babies are the work of plush artist Marina Yamkoskaia, and her other creations are every bit as capable of activating extreme cuteness aggression.

Death and the Robot

Posted in animation, death, film, robots, skulls and skeletons, you can't handle the cute with tags , , , , , on January 30, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

The other day I watched an animated short film about Death and a Robot. In this vignette, death is a lady…

She meets a robot who longs to experience the world (and thus unplugs his power source to venture out).

Together they transform a bare, grim cemetery into a beautiful garden.

But Death does not know the robot is dying, and she blames herself when he ceases to function. In his memory, she tends to the beauty they created together.

It’s such a lovely film. Watch the whole thing here:

I wanted so much to believe this is an actual album, but sadly I don’t see it on Amazon or YouTube.

Look at this lonely fellow. Don’t you just want to pick him up and tell him it’s going to be okay?

Saturniidae

Today I give you an example of how nature flaunts cuteness in the strangest of places, with two examples of Saturniidae.

These babies look like a Furby mated with a Tribble…but they’re so damn adorable, are they not?
