I’m going to be honest one of the reasons I’m posting this amazing collection of eclectic cameras created by Swis duo Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs is so that I can use the coin the word “Armadillo-cam”.
These are really cool, I love the camera made out of a stack of books (above).
In case you haven’t heard Thatcher has died, I know this from the stream of vitriol that my Twitter and Facebook feed have become.
While I’m old enough to remember Thatcher, and I’m liberal enough to be one of the people who should dislike her, I didn’t live in the UK during her supposed reign of terror so I don’t really harbour her any ill will.
My memory of Thatcher is this:
I know that a lot of people hated her for a lot of reasons, but lets be honest she was just a woman who was elected to power and did what she thought was right. What is done is done and can’t be taken back, her death doesn’t change that, it doesn’t make your life any better.
If I made cookies more often and wasn’t perpetually on a diet trying to shift my immense man-belly, I’d seriously consider buying these 3D printed game of Thrones Cookie Cutters by artist Athey Moravets. His Etsy shop “Warpzone” specializes in custom cookie cutters and as well as the above house sigils you can also get the face of Tyrion Lannister in cookie form:
I’m a Frey and a Whore FML… At least I’m not a King, that would really suck, and drastically lower my life expectancy.
I’m half tempted to throw together something that does this with a little more complexity allowing for more names/titles, it shouldn’t be too hard to generate a hash of name and DOB and then just get a modulus of the respective list counts.
The comic book industry has a long history of sexualizing women, so much so that someone started a project called the “Hawkeye Initiative” which replaces female characters in comic art with Hawkeye from the avengers to show how ridiculous the poses look and of course there are many reasons why showing cleavage is bad for crime fighting.
So it’s refreshing to see these new takes on classic super heroine costumes, by Michael Lee Lunsford, that preserve their modesty while still allowing them to kick ass.
