Hello my scads of link-hungry folks! I guess I haven’t abandoned this blog at all. Let’s get things started, shall we?
First, going to pimp my dad’s art work, because the earring-holders-as-beautiful-found-object-sculpture are (1) AWESOME AS CHRISTMAHANNAKWANZIKA PRESENTS FOR THE DISCERNING HOLIDAY SHOPPER and (2) taking up room in my house. Here is an example:
and the link to his Etsy. There are more than just those listed. Give me a holler if you want to purchase one (more college-student-friendly rates for smaller pieces).
Onto the links:
Halloween. Scary, slutty, just plain weird? If you, too, are not interested in being a “Sexy! Anime Character Riding a Wolf..With Glitter!”, try out these alternative awesome women’s costume ideas. I, for one, will be going, possibly nowhere, as a gay fairy. There is a rainbow tutu involved that I made myself!
And, if you get like me and have too many Halloween (or just, you know, Saturday afternoon) costumes, here’s a cool look inside some closets of serious style bloggers. I wish mine were that organized.
Also in the vein of Halloween ideas, here are some more mythical creatures you can go as. “What are you, again?” “Oh, you’ve probably never heard of Jorogumo, huh…” Hipster costumes, minus the irony.
If you are in a Disney Princess sort of mood (and I bet you are, now), take a look at these beautiful, if eerie, portraits of Disney Princesses as “real” people. Belle looks unimpressed with the artist, as she would. Love Belle. Anyway, back to the links.
To sum up the vague sort of disgust I have this year with all this “Sexy Ninja Turtle” this and “Sexy Assaj Ventress” nonsense, here is a great feminist discussion of why over-sexualized comic book heroines are doing no one any good, especially the women they are supposed to inspire. I wholeheartedly endorse this position.
Veering away from sad things about this here world, here is a funny new internet trend for those not in-the-know: Mocking Stock Photography.
In design drooling, this pretty much exemplifies the vibe I want a future living space to exude.
Rachel Maddow (massive crush. massive) sent Mitt Romney a message this week from her “Man-Cave” to explain to him some facts about conception, contraception, & how his comments make him sound like he’s going to make taking The Pill into a murder. Don’t worry, she’s aaaallll over this.
And finally, we need to get on this important project. Penguins need sweaters, everybody.
Also pay attention to OccupyWallSt, but you all knew that, yeah?
