Behold Queen Tardigrade!


She is just one of many bright, densely packed lowbrow delights from Thomas A. Gieseke.


This one is a favorite of mine, in part due to the title: The Extrovert Leaves the Introvert to His Own Devices:

We introverts do love that.

Does anyone know the artist responsible for this (I bet one of you will!)? I swoon every time I look at this piece.

The lesser known alternative to “shooting lasers from one’s eyes” is shooting pinup models.

My fellow introverts, here is a fabulous KEEP AWAY sign!

Who wants a start a club with this name with me?

From Cake Wrecks comes this awesome reproduction:

Hey, want some fashion? Here goes…

Hairdo hall of fame!

Excellent costume idea:

And while was not intended as a Halloween costume, I think it would work wonderfully as one.

Great alternative to to poodle skirt:

Just make sure you’re not dressed for trouble.

Lovely Crazy Cat Lady:

This has been circulating a lot, but I just have to make sure you’ve all seen it.

Two loves had he…

“Lite Brite, Lite Brite…turn on the magic of colored lights!”

[Imitates Todd Flanders] “Is your source on this reliable?”

This kid is going places in life…

Old Sunday School postcards are always cheese-tastically awesome.

The word of the week: HAMAGINATION.

I love hints of barely detectable darkness amidst standard prim and proper design.

Well done, taxidermist. Well done. Does anyone remember the Ren and Stimpy “Log” commercial that featured “Ultra Log” (which just had a hideous dead squirrel nailed to the top)?

Coincidentally, I also came across what might have been the goal of the project above:

Can this be me, please?

Okay…time to get some reading done…

This has come up in about 5 of the blogs I typically follow…so Cyborg Gorbachev is really asking to be posted.

If I were a few inches tall, this would be my preferred mode of transportation.

Amazing doll concept by Ali Gulec:

These life-like Beavis and Butt-Head statues having been making the Internet rounds as well. Wonderful job crafting a photorealistic and rather horrifying vision of these two, Kevin Kirkpatrick. See a few more shots here.

Why I love being an introvert:

On a related note, I think this would make great club wear for introverts. It really sends the right message if one is not in the mood for human interaction: Come one step closer and I will BITE you!

Finally, the trendy luxury toward which I harbor an extreme distaste finds a home in serial killer apparel. THIS, I like.

I’m with you, Neil!

Fatal Attraction had NOTHING on this:

Bear with me for a moment of extreme adorableness…

And speaking of cats, take a look at what I always pretty much assumed would be my own future (everybody knows it’s not official until facebook says so…this is the real deal):

Ohhhh-kay, so I’ll admit that I only envision myself in a relationship with one or two cats. I’m about quality, not quantity.

Now we come to the portion of this blog post where I try to avoid making a pun about something being “fishy” here…

Usually at least one of my Desktop Goodies will launch me into utter confusion. Today’s baffling example (caption, anyone?):

…and by “Projection Equipment” they mean her brassiere:

Ladies, I’ll leave you with this romantic gift idea: raw meat.

Hush Pod

This chair by Freya Sewell looks very inviting to me.

It’s another piece of introvert furniture (for those who don’t want the Sensory Deprivation Skull). Perfect for curling up and reading A Guide for the Extra Woman

Anatomically correct.

Are you ready to get the wind up?

I spy…

The road (or track) less traveled…

You have the right to remain silent:

Aw, I bet my roommate has had to do this for me…introvert that I am.

I’m not sure why, but I kind of like this. I think it would look great with other species.

Ah, innovation for the skinny girl. I’ll take mine extra pointy, so it doubles as a weapon.

Actually, I think I can “weight” a little…

Til I eat a few of these…

I always renovate my house in an evening gown.

And just so you leave this blog a little smarter today:

Steve Lambert

Posted in art, installations, introvert, sculpture with tags , , , on May 12, 2011 by shewalkssoftly

Steve Lambert is quite an interesting artist with a variety of thought provoking projects.

Amazing sign:

We are friends of irony and contradiction here on this blog…

From the artist statement:
For me, art is a bridge that connects uncommon, idealistic, or even radical ideas with everyday life. I carefully craft various conditions where I can discuss these ideas with people and have a mutually meaningful exchange. Often this means working collaboratively with the audience, bringing them into the process or even having them physically complete the work.

I want my art to be relevant to those outside the gallery – say, at the nearest bus stop – to reach them in ways that are engaging and fun. I intend what I do to be funny, but at the core of each piece there is also a solemn critique. It’s important to be able to laugh while actively questioning the various power structures at work in our daily lives.

I may consider using this as a gift packaging technique, to convey the simple sincerity of giving a present.

The ultimate challenge for an introvert like me:

Unwelcome Mat

Posted in halloween, home, humor, introvert with tags , , , on March 24, 2011 by shewalkssoftly

This was created as a Halloween project, but it’s perfect for those who dread the visitor “pop in.” Also great for those spells of intense introversion.

Found on the lovely Creepy Cupcakes.

Tiny Houses on Tiny Islands

Posted in architecture, introvert with tags , on November 8, 2009 by shewalkssoftly

Even as an adult, the whole idea of a “secret hideaway” never lost its appeal. I still daydream about escaping to tiny cabins in the middle of nowhere to be alone with books, projects or a special someone.

The Tiny House Blog has a nice little collection of island cabins.


Something about these isolated capsules of comfort is almost meditative.


Granted, they are not the most convenient locations, and in the event of a storm or intense food craving (both of which are equally severe in my opinion) you’re pretty much out of luck.


However, I’d be willing to chance it for a few days and simply show up fortified with oil lanterns and an array of sweets.

Ninja of the Sea

Coolest ten seconds I’ve seen in a while.

I can relate to this creature sometimes.
