Beware the Brides of Frankenstein
Beware the Brides of Frankenstein

(Dang, I can’t find an image from the Sandman comic of “Beware the Brides of Frankenstein. Trust me, it’s a sterling reference. Here, have something crazy instead.) “The first bride…the first bride was a failed experiment, Igor. But I have learned. I have learned that I should never have stopped at ONE. And also, the […]

Don’t make eye contact with the hat.
Don’t make eye contact with the hat.

If you encounter this hat in a corn field, it’s best just to back away slowly. Look to the ground, it may consider direct eye contact a threat or challenge for dominance. Under no circumstances should you run away from the hat, as it might attack. When you look at me with those cookie-monster eyes, […]

Jesus loves you…
Jesus loves you…

Even if. You know. There was that terrible accident. It’s hard to read the Savior’s expression here, although I am digging on the hair. On the one hand, total 60s American folk singer look, with that strangely leonine hair and beard. Although if you just kind of put your hand over the picture he looks […]

FLOWER
FLOWER

The subtle nuance of this picture is, probably, lost on you. The impressionist masters, of which this is certainly the creation, excelled at creating the sense of the moment, not only the image of the thing but the experience of seeing it. This captures the frisson of being punched in the face with a daffodil, the traigos […]

Your Friday serving of something
Your Friday serving of something

My dog has produced the most extraordinary quantity of poop in the last 24 hours, and my nerves are a little bit shot now after dealing with it. As it happens, “several small pieces of crap” kind of summarizes my Flickr gallery right now though, so happy Friday. You may already be a winner. That […]

Oh Garfield, No
Oh Garfield, No

I don’t know what horrible disease this poor cat got. A really bad case of 50s diner aesthetic, perhaps. Or maybe a good old-fashion drowning, complete with ruffled billowing drapery for that “Ophelia” look. Only with more bubbles, and a ghastly oxygen-deprived pallor instead of Ophie’s creamy off-white. Protip: Nobody’s modesty is preserved by a pair […]

I’m not feeling it.
I’m not feeling it.

For the record, this says (sic) 21th Century Peace Texas. And it looks like a Babylonian ziggurat covered in dolphins. Really BIG dolphins. Or, a gay rainbow version of Devo’s “Energy Dome” hat. Again, covered with dolphins, but I am not familiar with the full corpus of Devo’s videography, perhaps they had dolphins. They were […]

Is it Fall yet?
Is it Fall yet?

The beginning of Autumn just snuck past, and I totally failed to mark it, probably because it was an unreasonable 97 degrees during most of September. But now, let’s take a moment to celebrate all things Autumnal–the harvest, leaves, pumpkins, glorious reds and golds, and above all, the vague feeling that life is dying and […]

The little green frog
The little green frog

Once upon a time, there was a frog. She was a lovely shade of green, the same color as the underside of the third leaf of spring, a delicate, dusty shade. Ice cream made of the ghosts of limes, the fading memory of your first traffic light. And then–you know, there’s probably a song about […]

Wan little damsels
Wan little damsels

See, normally when I see this particular lady, her head is grossly inflated like some sort of decaying melon. This time, though, she’s got a sort of Claude Monet thing happening, “Damsel with Umbrella.” Her hair looks like some sort of terrible tar applied to her head, neck, and back, but at least her neck can […]
