I’ve been looking at a lot of historical nautical maps lately. What maps lacked in accuracy 500 years ago, they sure made up for with extravagant design. I’d be pretty thrilled if this guy showed up on my GPS.

Sadly, it’s pretty clear that “solitudes” has a double meaning here.

I don’t think this is what she meant by “Calgon, take me away!”

Actually, he said you guys were more like acquaintances. Just sayin’.

Breathtaking…

DY-NO-MITE! Actual mites, I mean.

You mean cats can saw wood and build things while mine have been eating and sleeping all day? Freaking freeloaders.

Ugh. One of those evenings.

This requires careful planning.

I stared at this for like five minutes in a futile attempt to decide which one is creepier.

Just a Little Pulp Art for Your Sunday

Posted in art, comics, horror, retro, sci-fi, vintage with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 26, 2016 by shewalkssoftly

I’ve always wanted to post a bunch of great pulp art here, but it’s an overwhelming thought since my pulp archives contain thousands of images. How does one even choose?

Well, another blog I follow recently posted a bunch of images (some of which I had, some not), so here are a few choice cuts!

I love this painting. Such a sense of longing.

I left the trademark that says “for personal purposes only,” because I imagine all of us have ultra-cute kitten purposes.

On the other hand, I see no earthly purpose for this:

So…extra crotch room for Chuck Norris style kicks was a selling point?

How do I get my hands on this?

This came up in my Amazon suggestions. Best mouse pad I’ve ever seen. I may buy it for my such clicks and many scrolls. And I like its enthusiasm: “Wow.”

I tried to find this album on YouTube so we could take a listen. Art definitely looks the part(y) here.

Opposuits: The Ultimate Geek Suits

Posted in clothing, comics, fashion, geek, video games with tags , , , , on April 23, 2016 by shewalkssoftly

Looking for the geekiest suits ever? Look no further than Opposuits.

os_033_badaboom_website-001

They make a number of suits for the rebels and geeks of the world who want to look sharp with some fancy threads.
os_el-muerto_website_01

Some suits are unpatterened, unconventional colors (every bright color of the rainbow, actually), but I think the Pac Man is my favorite:

While there is no mention of the material, these ensembles are available for a shockingly affordable (for a suit) $100.

Don’t miss the Halloween and Christmas collections too!

You realize what happened here: this bird was killed, only to be zoomorphized into a bastardized version of itself in a stupid hat. Talk about adding insult to injury.

I’m completely entranced by this piece, yet can’t find an artist credit anywhere. Ideas? If no one knows…it’s obviously an alien cell phone.

I almost cropped out the caption because it’s so clear that this thing originated from a very unholy place that it just seems redundant.

Isn’t this all our monsters ever really want? (No really, think about it.)

I searched, in gleeful hope, for a vintage TV commercial featuring Drippy the Runny Nose Kid. But alas, no record of one exists. Sorry I couldn’t deliver this thing in action (or maybe I should be saying “you’re welcome”).

Yes, some might consider the following a deal breaker. She seems open minded. The horse (or…man-horse?), not so much.
