Geek Chic

I hate the fashion labels that this design is spoofing, because I think the intrinsic design is ugly and the products that are adorned with it are overly expesive. I think it’s Louise Vuitton but as far as I’m concerned LV, Gucci, D&G and the like are all interchangeable and you’d never catch me wearing anything by any of them.

I’ve actually got a subconscious bias against people who wear these brands, I immediately assume that anyone who wears them is an idiot, mainly because they have bought an intrinsically ugly product purely because it has a logo stamped all over it, and are now perpetuating that log as walking advertisements for it…

Anyway you can score this design: “Geek Chic,” to help it get printed on Threadless!

Woo!

Story Idea: History is Written by the Winners

In the Bible that dude God killed 2,038,344 people, and Satan only 10. Maybe Satan is the good guy but he just lost the battle.

I read the above tweet this morning and had a thought for a story, what if god was the bad guy and he just put himself in a good light because as the victor he was the one who told the story?

I assume the story would be a bit Hellblazer stories with a John Constantine like character but possibly not. It could actually end up being a double bluff where Satan convinces a faithful person, probably a priest, that he is in the right only to find that at the end that Satan had tricked the priest and the whole thing was meant to be a test of his faith…

 

 

Story Idea: Culinary Conspiracy

I had a thought this morning, what we didn’t need food, food was a drug that we obtained a chemical dependency to by eating when we were children. Had we not eaten as children we wouldn’t need to eat now.

I know it’s a completely ridiculous but the concept of Breatharianism does exist, I wouldn’t even call it a psuedo science. But there being a conspiracy by the evil food industry to make us dependant on food would make an interesting plot for a science fiction novel or short story at least…

Troll Aunt

I went into the garage today to unpack the Christmas decorations. I found a present from last year that I had forgotten to give the grandkids. They would have really loved that kitten…

Johnston Hurricane Bawbag Appeal

A humorous appeal has been doing the rounds (That’s just one random example) on the internet in the wake of Hurricane Bawbag, I’ve also seen it reffered to as hurricane Hamish and Hurricane Senga which is the earliest reference I can find to it way back in 2009 it’s been slightly changed since then, but the sentiment is pretty much the same:

Johnstone Hurricane Appeal – Please give generously!

Hurricane “bawbag” hit the Johnstone district of Renfrewshire in the early hours of yesterday morning. Victims were seen wandering round aimlessly muttering “Pure mental, man no?”

The hurricane decimated the area causing approximately £15,000 worth of improvements. Several priceless collections of mementos from Manchester and Seville were damaged beyond repair. Three historically important areas of burnt out cars were disturbed. Many locals were woken well before their Giros arrived the next morning. Police state that incidences of looting, muggings and car crime were particularly high during the night, but calmed down when the hurricane struck.

Forty-two asylum seekers were rescued from an apartment in Dundonald Place , rescuers are going to search the second bedroom later today.

Radio Clyde has reported that hundreds of residents were confused and bewildered and were still trying to come to terms with the fact that something interesting had happened in Johnstone .

One resident, Bernadette O’Reilly, a 15 year old mother of 5 said “It gied me a pure fright so’s it did. My little Chardonnay-Mercedes came running into ma bedroom greetin’. My youngest two, Tyler-Morgan and Natasha-Jordan-Jade slept through it all. Ah wiz still pure shaking when I was watching Jezza the next morning, so ah wiz”. Neighbour Joseph ‘young young’ McGurn said “The noise wiz tremendous. At first ah thoat it wiz the young team coming oot of The Globe Bar, but it wiz even worser.

The British Red Cross has so far managed to ship 4,000 crates of Bon Accord Pola Cola and two tons of Cheese Toasties to the area to help stricken locals..

Rescue workers are still searching the rubble and have found quantities of personal belongings including Benefit books and bone china from Poundland.

Residents in neighbouring Paisley offered to accommodate those left homeless, but the Johnstone people decided they were better off where they were..

A Council spokesman has indicated that it would take take at least a full morning to get things looking like normal and added “There has been a pure Blitz spirit, everybody’s been pure blitzed”.

Poundland has agreed to stay open 24 hours to allow residents to refurbish their homes. The Government has pledged to ensure that bookies, pubs, chip shops and other essential services will reopen as soon as possible.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

Mashed Up Marvel/DC Heroes and Villains

It took some crazy Google-fu to find the source of these images by Deviant Art user ~nomorepalo.

The above image is a mash up of the Avengers and the Justice League:

PRESENTING: The Avenging League of America!

Starring: (left to right)

Speederman (flash/spiderman) – 22 years old Peter Pecker was bitten by a lightning charged super spider giving him the ability to do spider stuffs… quickly….

Iron Bat (Ironman/Batman) – Multimillionaire superhero by day and super gigolo at night (hence the name Iron Bat). Bruise Vain gets all the bad guys and all the ladies.

Asgardian Chick (Thor/Hawkgirl) – a valkyrie who was exiled from Asgard for being too slutty. She can do wonders with her “hammer-shaped mace”.

Captainman (Cap. America/Superman) – a super powered kryptonian who was injected with super soldier serum. Now he has the power of a super-powered kryptonian and a super-powered human.

She-Woman (She-Hulk/Wonder Woman) – an amazon princess who was exposed to gamma radiation giving her hulk-like appearance…

And below some Villainous Mashups, while I think the pairing are spot on for the heros I’m not sure about all the villains:

PRESENTING! The Super Enemies of America!

Starring: (left to right)

The Anonymous (Chameleon/Riddler) – A notorious internet terrorist, The Anonymous spams innocent people’s emails with irritating riddles.

50/50 (Venom/Two-Face) – 50% fag, 50% evil alien symbiote for a total of 100% irritation.

Uberweight (Kingpin/Bane) – A crime lord/luchador… he’s not special… He is very heavy though.

The Grin Goblin (Green Goblin/The Joker) – A mobster who fell in a vat of magic potion which gave him severe acne. To avoid being ridiculed by his peers, he wears an equally ugly mask of a goblin.

Dr. Octopussy (Dr. Octopus/Catwoman) – with 8 limbs and 9 lives, Dr. Octopussy is every man’s dream girl

I disagree with his opinion on Two Face and Venom I actually quite like those two characters…
