A lovely lovely tee from Khallion @ TeeFury ( the fury being what you feel when you find a perfect design the day AFTER it’s for sale).


There’s some joke about Gaius being full of siht, somewhere…

Is it ironic, that someone with a distaste for video games is now nearly-centering my life around a Burning Man camp based on one?

“In an attempt to address an ever-decreasing number of new recruits strengthening America’s forces in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other parts of the world, the US Army is currently adopting a new way of recruiting young men and women for active service. In northeast Philadelphia, it has set up a new experimental recruiting center, filled with computers and video game consoles, as well as large-scale models of a Humvee and some helicopters. The place looks more like a lounge, adorned with couches and swept away by rock music coming from loudspeakers.

The experiment the Army is currently engaged in seeks to bring more people in, and already they seem to be accomplishing that, if we consider the fact that the new center has already drawn 33 full-time soldiers, as well as 5 reservists. This makes it the approximate equivalent of five other recruitment centers, counting the people attracted within a short time frame.

The $12 million US Army Experience Center, hosted by the Franklin Mills shopping mall features some 60 personal computers and 19 Xbox 360 controllers, all coming with a large array of military strategy games to choose from.”

Relentlessly cheerful, staggeringly awesome

I haven’t watched it yet, but it’s got to be as awesome.

“The Sandman,” the Neil Gaiman-penned comic book series considered a seminal work in the medium, is in the early stages of being developed into a TV series.

I was Death for Halloween, back in college.

…Geez, nearly 15 years ago. I am old. Can I tell you, that black hairspray color is a BITCH. I don’t recommend it.

There, happy??


“No, I never have. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one…” – Harrison Ford circa 1977, asked if he was ever into sci-fi stuff

“It’s not science fiction so much as it is space fantasy…it’s finally about people, and not about science.”

“There’s inevitable problems with that much technology.”

“This film is certainly a success.”

How to make the photo jewelry that’s all the rage…

August 15, 2010

The other week my dad brought me a little treat – he was very pleased about it. It was a necklace with a picture of the Linux  penguin. “She sells these,” he commented,”she can put pretty much anything in them!”

Yeah, I replied, they’re really easy to make! I have a necklace or two using the same method – $40! For something so simple (I saw a how-to on PBS, even, a few years ago).

All you need:

1. picture you want

2. glue/sealer

3. jewelry

Photo Jewelry Making has all of it – even software to help you size the photographs. Photo Jewelry Making helps make it easy with a starter kit that includes:

1 1 oz clear coating kit for sealing your photos into jewelry pieces

1 EZ-Resizer program for easily resizing and printing your photos to the perfect size for photo jewelry (includes presets for all products)

1 Photo Jewelry Making Name Maker CD – Great for easily making text images (such as an important date or event name) and putting text over photos.

6 All purpose craft spoons for mixing clear coating

12 Clear coating mixing cups

2 No-run gel Super Glue for adhering photos

10 Sheets of photo paper

I’d only been familiar with the usual pendants (square, circle, oval) and rings, but Photo Jewelry Making has cufflinks, charm bracelets – even wood. I think the belt buckles would be a hilarious gift,

You could put anything on there! It’s large enough you could even collage. I could put my face on there and give it to my boyfriend. It’s great for friends with funny or esoteric likes, because you can get any picture of it (like some random band or movie star, a funny quote, etc.) and make it into something they can proudly wear.

There’s Pip Boy, from the video game Fallout 3.

I enjoy antique photographs, Photo Jewelry Making has pendants to match:

I’ve already got a list of ideas (Neil Gaiman quotes, Joy Division necklace, a bracelet of fun pictures for mom) just from looking at the site! I could put a picture of Shaft onto this money clip

Rhinestones! Pimpin’!

I love the dog tags:

I have a lot of friends who wear that style of jewelry – or, like me, hang them from their rearview mirror. They’d be really perfect gifts for a group of friends. Or for your soldier, to keep with him while he’s overseas. They come two-sided, so you could put a picture on one side and a message of love or gratitude (or both!) on the other.

One of the really great ideas they have are wine tags! Wine tags make a fantastic hostess gift, but they tend to come in limited styles (flip-flop charms, beads, etc.).

Using their wine tags,

How much fun would it be to put people’s faces on it!? A regular group of friends – like a book club – who gets together for wine could each have their truly own, personalized wine tag! Or you could put little pictures of different cheeses. Mmmm…fromage!

I also like that Photo Jewelry Making is American (in Michigan) and  family-owned. I personally don’t think there’s anything better than a personal gift (no gift cards! no cash! no no no!), and a hand-made personalized gift? The absolute best. Especially at the great prices Photo Jewelry Making offers (I’d get a large amount for wholesale, and have Mother’s Day, birthdays, baby showers and everything covered!).

Their selection is the largest I’ve ever seen – not just the variety (Christmas gifts, watches,

key rings, belt buckles, cufflinks, bracelets, Italian charms, pet ideas

and more!).  Even their FAQ is friendly and helpful. The potential for retail mark-up is astounding, as well.  And thanks to Photo Jewelry Making, it couldn’t be any easier!

Pew Pew Pew!!

A while back I got a note from the USPS saying I had to get a mailbox (I have one, it’s on the wall next to my front door) and I didn’t, and that was that. Now I want one!!!

An X-Wing mailbox.

I was already in the throes of covet when I read about the R2D2 phone. I ache I want one so badly!

I think it’d just be easier to find service, I’m having a heck of a time with this one…

Must be time for the menses
