Doctor Who Theme Song On Cello (Only)

Posted in music, sci-fi, TV, video with tags , , , on September 6, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Whovians, this cello version of the Doctor Who theme song is gorgeous (maybe I’m just a sucker for anything redone using the cello).

Anyone watching the new season? What do you think of Peter Capaldi as the Doctor? I must admit, I completely stopped watching the show during the “Amy Pond” era because for some reason I found her intolerable, to the point that I couldn’t even give Matt Smith a fair shot in his role. I still miss the days of David Tennant and Billie Piper. But I’m getting back into it now.

Floating in the Spam River…

Posted in absurd, humor, TV, video with tags , , , on August 24, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I had a problem with wordpress recently, and no comments or notifications for this blog were sent to me for months (sorry if you left a comment and didn’t get a response! It should be fixed now). I’m also drowning in massive piles of spam comments that are very tedious to weed through in order to get the real messages. But some of them are so nonsensical and entertaining that they actually work as material for the blog itself.

For a while, I was getting random facebook comments people left for each other…as comments to my posts. I was smothered in things like “Hey Nicole! Great to see you at the gym the other day!” Not sure how or why that could even happen.

Heal Yourself Skeletor

Heal Yourself Skeletor is an amazing tumblr. I cannot tell you how much joy I get from looking at this particular character paired with joyous, loving affirmations.

Skeletor makes a dynamite bodhisattva (and the screenshots are perfect, aren’t they?).

Creepmas Day 3: Breaking Bad Ginger Bread RV

Posted in christmas, craft, food, TV with tags , , , on December 3, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

This is not “creepy” in the monstrous, undead sense, but I would say the effects of meth count (don’t do drugs, kids!).

Check out this brilliantly crafted Breaking Bad Gingerbread RV (smoke out of the top…nice touch)!

Michele Carragher: Game of Thrones Embroidery

Posted in craft, TV with tags , on July 26, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

People everywhere seem to be obsessed with Game of Thrones. When I watched, I had a vague impression that the costumes were well done, but looking closely there are whole worlds embroidered into the fabric these characters wear! It is the work of Michele Carragher.

The textures, fabrics, materials and techniques she uses are incredible. Look at the depth of this stitch work! Fit for royalty, indeed.

Can’t type much, but I must take this Father’s Day opportunity to honor the World’s Greatest Dad (“That’s better than #1!”).
