“What is Fashion?” Amazing 80’s Student Film.

Posted in 80's, fashion, film, humor, quotes with tags , , , , on July 30, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

This student film is totally radical…tubular…clutch. I forgot how many kids had braces back then…or should have had braces. See some Breakfast Club runner-ups discuss their ideas of what fashion is and what it means to them!

My favorite line: “Ska is from England. It’s kinda like Duran Duran, sort of. But they’re kinda like, mediocre to this. They’re not as intense.” *headdesk*

Henry Hargreaves: A Trip to the Moon…In Icing

Posted in antiques, craft, film, food, photography with tags , , , , on July 21, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Artist/photographer Henry Hargreaves has combined two of my favorite things: silent films and cake (well, technically cake frosting, but still). He recreated the iconic image from George Melies’s 1902 film Le Voyage Dans La Lune.

The Evolution of Visual Effects

Posted in film, video with tags , on May 20, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I dedicate this video to my amazing dad, special effects editor extraordinaire! It’s kind of neat to see a collage of these memorable movie moments, remembering that each one, in its own time, was a marvel of human ingenuity.

Swamp Pulp

Through dear old Pinterest, I discovered a most unexpected literary (and film!) subgenre: SWAMP PULP.

Swamps strike me as one of the LEAST sexy ecosystems to cozy up with someone…but what do I know? Swamps are clearly infested with rampant sexuality.

Apparently there was such a market for this that multiple authors and film makers chose the same swampy titles.

And this was just the small sample I found. I’m intrigued (not intrigued enough to read about swamp nymphs…but quite astounded that they have been such a prominent feature in dime store novels).

I’ve posted about Cuddly Rigor Mortis before…and she’s back with an interpretation of my favorite holiday movie ever.

The bunny…the shot out eye…the official Red Ryder BB Gun…awesome.
