I couldn’t choose which link to post…so have a bunch!

What those dead bird holiday cards I posted the other day actually mean.

Did anyone have these toys?

Inbread people…

This is an excellent shop concept because it enables you to shoot the people who disturb your reading without making extra store stops.

“BURST WITH THE TERROR OF A BREAKUP!” You better believe I’ll be turning this into a sympathy greeting card if my friends ever need it…but I hope they don’t.

Ah, I knew it. See you in hell.

This makes me cry like the ASPCA commercials. I want to rescue every one.

Pretty much the greatest photo of all time:

Love this rare art nouveau piece, complete with giant fish.

Time to bundle up for winter! I’m always freezing. I don’t know how I’ve lived without a knit Facehugger in the winter.

I’m never going to be part of Tinder culture…but this would be useful in real life if it were possible.

Bombz N Roses: Tom Servo

My fellow MST3K fans, check out this awesome Tom Servo print, brand new from Bombz N Roses.

I love the style of this piece. I wouldn’t mind a little space traveling Servo gracing the walls of my home.

Bez: Android Tattoo

Posted in art, body decoration, sci-fi, steampunk, tattoos with tags , , , , on September 7, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I’ve seen a number of gear, machinery and various android stylings in tattoo art, but perhaps none so unique as this brightly colored gem from Bez at Triplesix Studios:

Such a strange and beautiful combination of manufactured material and otherworldly organic matter.

Lyme Lags

Posted in announcement, bugs, horror, sci-fi with tags , , , , on July 16, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I’ve been skipping a bunch of days on SWS recently due to spending every moment of my days in such crushing full body pain that it’s difficult to move…even breathe. It’s utterly indescribable (this is post is punctuated with centipede monsters because a search for “spirochete monsters” turns up nothing).

centipede

This is nothing new. I’ve had pain of this kind without one second of relief for eight years straight. I do my best to push through it, despite being housebound since 2011.

But it has reached unprecedented heights, and there have been massive delays beyond my control and allergies to all of my Lyme Disease treatment options thus far. That’s the worst part…feeling these bugs squeeze the life out of me in the most slow, agonizing way without any major recourse in the immediate future.

I’ll be attempting to orchestrate treatment through my diagnosing physician on Monday via phone, although he is across the country (it takes months to years to get in with a Lyme literate doctor so I still have months to go despite making an appointment immediately upon diagnosis).

In the meantime, forgive me if I miss a day here and there!

Twilight Zone Doorway Decal

Posted in decoration, home, sci-fi, TV with tags , , , on July 8, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Would you like your home to contain a 5th dimension beyond that which is known to man? A dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity? A middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, that lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge?

Well, you’re in luck. This “life size” Twilight Zone wall decal contains the iconic (eyeconic?) eye and clock from the opening credit sequence, floating in the endless vastness of space.

I’m tempted. Oh yes.

WHY don’t more buses look like this? It’s such a missed opportunity NOT to paint giant teeth on all of them.

I’m sure this valid excuse resulted in instant exoneration:

Yeah, but the Wild Germ has anger issues…

One must look at the tagline and consider whether it is really the kind of attention ones wants.

A very touching piece of street art.

The sweet, pink title image is excellent with a cat that looks exceedingly unamused.
