Portal Sneaker Boots

I’ve always thought that the Converse style “sneaker boots” you can get look cool but I’m not sure I could pull them off, or put them on for that matter as I have calves the size of… Well very big things…

These Portal Sneaker boots by artist Jared Sellers are pretty cool, what is it about adding a little blue and orange to a design and putting the Aperture science logo on things that makes them infinitely cooler? For some reason anything Portal is cool on the internet these days, I’m not about to argue, because my first reaction was “COOL PORTAL SNEAKER BOOTS!” and not “Oh no not another artist trying to rip off Portal” so there you have it…

Exo-Boots - Hydraulic Armour for Boots

I found a listing for these boot covers (no you will have to buy your own boots) on Etsy, the same shop sells a shmorgasport of other cyber goth things including these wings which I think I’ve featured here before:

Powered Mechanical Wings - Version 1.5 with LED Light Effects

The boot Armour will set you back about £300 + shipping from Canukistan (Canada). They also sell glowy gauntlets and a really odd looking neck brace…

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…

 

 

2nd Coming canceled due to bad weather…

God's world tour canceled.

Glasgow city council have this amazing campaign to stop illegal flyposting where they stick huge stickers on the posters saying “Cancelled”, in small print the stickers say that the poster is cancelled. But for the innocent by stander it looks like the event/ album launch etc is canceled.

I saw this on my way into town and almost died laughing.

Knowing Glasgow the 2nd coming was probably canceled due to bad weather, however it’s likely that it might also be due to a lack of interest.
