If a Norwegian robot analyzes a bird, it Scandinavian.
In a series Artist Jeff Bennett is calling Wars on Kinkade, the Painter of Light’s ethereally bland landscapes come under the iron fist of Star Wars storm troopers, Imperial Star Destroyers and Hoth-crushing AT-ATs.
File under: things I would hang in my living room (if I had a living room).
I approve, and do have a living room, but also have an old mother who wouldn’t see the attraction (not that she cares anything for Kinkade). hee hee
Hello, still here. Not very active, though. Time pressures and unstable wi-fi caused me to fall weeks behind on my dashboard, and I’m not even trying to get caught up with that now. (It’s no fun when going through a mere ten pages can take hours.) I mean, I’m reviewing some of my backlogged dashboard, and it dates back to Halloween. *sigh* I may lurk more than post for a while, so whoever still wishes to follow me, please be patient…
Tigers with pumpkins: it’s a thing
apparently texas has a limit on how many sex toys you can own. imagine a homeowner staring, stonefaced, at a pair of police officers as they haul armload after armload of dildos out of a closet and into their squad car, write a ticket and hand it to them without making eye contact, and drive off
Tam O’Shaughnessy, life partner of Sally Ride, moments before she accepts the Presidential Medal of Freedom on behalf of the first female American astronaut. Yesterday (20 Nov.) the medal was posthumously awarded to Ride for her work in science and education. Sally Ride is the first female NASA individual to be awarded this medal*.
* The Apollo 13 Mission Operations Team as a whole was also rewarded this medal, their award was presented as a group award. I have not been able to find out who the women on this team were.
I drafted the following ridiculous list of tags:
#I know this is #adorable #but I think I might be overreacting #because I don’t even know who the fiercest person in this picture is #and yet I am experiencing near-lethal happiness levels #who is this woman?! #I love her #mystery badass in a (p)leather skirt
…before I learned that she’s Joan Winston, organizer of the first Trek conventions. According to Wikipedia, she “was able to secure Roddenberry’s attendance at the first convention, and she also arranged for tapes of 15 episodes, a blooper reel, and a truck of space memorabilia from NASA.”
"A TRUCK OF SPACE MEMORABILIA"
THAT IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PHRASE I’VE EVER HEARD
She seems so awesome and I am in love with her for being a badass sci-fi lady and also just really happy for her that after all that work she got to have a) this experience and b) a photograph of it. (And also c) A TRUCK OF SPACE MEMORABILIA)
Again, sneering fanboys - look how women were RUNNING THE FANDOM SHOW way before you were a sperm-heading-toward-an-egg.
Joan Winston! I read her book! I loved her book. This picture makes me incredibly happy.
Two comments: a truck of space memorabilia from NASA?! aaaaaaah! Also: damn straight, women ran the Trek fandom show, and that was really the Original Fandom. To hell with the sneering fanboys… but also to hell with the women I keep meeting outside fandom who agree with the gits.
