Latest Piece: Anchor

I've been assembling pieces to decorate the wall above my bed. I have some pieces that friends made for me, from embroidery to paintings, a sun burst piece, a dream catcher my beau's mom gave me and a flashcard of a Dulcinea. I decided that I wanted a larger piece, something grounding, something stabilizing. An anchor came to mind and I quickly went to work on it. Recently I've been stretching my work onto wood frames and kind of, but not totally, abandoning the embroidery hoop frame I've used for a while. I'm really happy with how it turned out and not to jinx myself, but last night, the first night it was up on my wall, I slept so hard and so peacefully. *contented sigh*

Spread the Word

There's a lot going on in the world right now that's just plain ol' shitty (Wisconsin and the tsunami for example). And then a friend pointed out this Rachel Maddow video to me about the atrocity that's going down in Michigan. I was born and raised in the Mitt. My mom and many of my close friends still live there. If the Governor there actually gets to do the things he's setting out to do reported in this video, Michigan (my friends and family) will indeed be screwed.

Please watch this video. Educate yourself and spread the word.

Ya damn right.

Y: The Last Man

About ten minutes ago I finally finished the graphic novel series Y:The Last Man. I've been plowing through all ten books, one after another, like candy. I haven't been able to get enough of them and now it's over. It's all over. It's been a long time since I've finished a book(s) and found myself so engaged with the story and characters that I was sad when I came to the end.

I can't believe it ended.

Most of my friends are comic book geeks (I say this with great affection), but up until about two years ago I could never get into them. Then I took a chance and read Watchmen and I've spiraled into graphic novel heaven ever since. So far, everything I've read I've loved, but Y: The Last Man was the first to actually make me fight back tears when I came to the end.

The graphic above begins the premise of the story; A plague hits the earth killing every living being with a Y chromosome...except one man and his monkey, Ampersand. Dun dun dun!!! I could go into it further, but then I'd give away too much. So, in short, READ THESE BOOKS!


PS. Why does it have to be over? le sigh.

Girl Crush

I can't deny that my girl crush on Zooey Deschanel is getting more and more out of hand.

This video doesn't help.

She & Him - Don't Look Back from Merge Records on Vimeo.

PS. I don't mean to snuff M. Ward by any means. I crush him, too. :)
