Mouse of great angst
Mouse of great angst

The mouse is doing what we have all done: starring in his own private 80s teen movie. Only difference is, in real life the ending wasn’t written by John Hughes, you really could get dressed up in your best (rented) tux, stand outside her house with a boombox, and not get the girl–just lose your […]

Meanwhile, back at the ranch
Meanwhile, back at the ranch

A few random things I’d never be able to build a post around… Take, for instance, this picture. Imagine if you were an infant, and someone–I’m not saying who–your father? Maybe it doesn’t matter, your experience of reality is quite finite–anyway, this person wants to play “peek-a-boo” with you. And they’re looming after you, enormous, […]

Who brought the matador to the honeymoon?
Who brought the matador to the honeymoon?

Want to spice up your wedding night to truly salsarific levels? Think that special night isn’t going to be special enough? Consider bringing along a matador. What portends a life of marital bliss and steamy conjugal excitement more than a bullfighter? Wouldn’t the wedding be more exciting if someone drove a series of banderillas into […]

The mystery of Dada Kontrol
The mystery of Dada Kontrol

Somewhere in this world, there is clever commentary on art, and playful irony, and layered meaning. Not here, though. At least I think not. There may be a 10-page thesis for E309 (Rhetoric of Art) here. I’m guessing…a band? A really dated protest? I mean, Dada kind of died out in 1927. The Dadaists had a party […]

Today there will be big-eyed kittens.
Today there will be big-eyed kittens.

The 60s did something to people. If you survived them, apparently you started thinking big-eyed creatures–children, mostly, but dogs, some politicians, they even glued eyes to rocks because they weren’t big-eyed enough (or was that the 70′s? My bad.) Every time I think something is so absurd that is utterly doomed to die an unloved spinster, […]

Leo, your stars say bad hair day.
Leo, your stars say bad hair day.

Lions are, as I understand it, supposed to be majestic beasts of the Savannah; medieval scholars thought their appearance so strikingly human that they ennobled them, “king of the beasts.” This is not, not not not, one of those lions. This is the Yoda of lions. Tiny, twisted, wrinkled, enigmatic, and with a puppeteer’s hand […]

Bloodcam
Bloodcam

Oh, it’s Friday. Lower your standards with me. The last days were foretold in prophecy ages ago–how a great black sea would rise up over the land, how the sun would draw close, a sphere of terrible size, and how the skies would run red with blood and winds of sparks and flame would blow […]

Still more feet
Still more feet

(I’m so sorry for my frequent absences lately, I was working on a Kickstarter project which ate my entire life for about three months. That project is wrapping up now, thank goodness! Back to your regularly scheduled ceramic clowns.) We secretly replaced this high school geography class’s map of the world with this picture of feet. Let’s […]

….and then there were feet?
….and then there were feet?

This picture is so amazing that I’m going to spend the rest of the week on it. I could probably spend an ENTIRE week on it, but really that’s too much madness for one week.You could get lost in it. Take crazy-eyes here. Crazy-eyes, like so many of her friends, lives in a foot. It’s […]

Genuinely creepy dog
Genuinely creepy dog

The 70s called. They said they could keep their dog. Frankly, it was scaring the big-eyed children, and had put the big-eyed cat off its Tender Vittles. Dog, or fungus? I ask myself that every day, but as it turns out, no, they’re supposed to smell like that. I don’t know that they’re supposed to […]
