Hello, and welcome to another wholesome edition of Sploosh Tuesday (it’s still Tuesday SOMEWHERE< right?!), the slipperiest nuggets of excitement happening over at Horror Kitsch Bitch headquarters (read: my loungeroom, bed, local coffee shop, uni and/or work lunchroom).
I’m pretty darn excited to be participating, and hearing incredible speakers like Virgie Tovar
and Jes Baker
. They just emailed saying they were now accepting questions for the panels. I have too many!!
I think you can still register, it’s only $39 OR you can just pay what you can. Which is amazing. I’m not sure exactly how it’s going to operate, but i’m so confident it’ll be incredible. My phone will be off this weekend. Ok, not really, that’s impossible. But metaphorically speaking, IT WILL BE DEAD TO ME.
If you love Modcloth as much as me, you’ll know that they have some pretty bangin’ plus-size models. Yes, they could do even more to promote body diversity, but you know what else they’ve done that’s amazing?
They’ve signed a pledge to NOT USE PHOTOSHOP in any of their advertising material. On the rare occasion that they do, they are going to specify that it has been altered. This is a self-imposed pledge, I don’t think there will be in policing of it. But you know what? I’m gonna trust them. I’m an innocent til proven guilty kinda gal. And if it’s guilty, KILL DEM ALL. *
*sorry for morning aggression.
Morbid, but mind-boggling… in the Victorian Era, it was a tradition for people to have photos taken with their deceased ones, or to memorialise them. In some cases (like with babies), it was the only way they would get to have a family photo taken together.
Creepy cool, hey? All images (and more) from here.
I have been learning cool things in my new uni course, and one of my subjects brought to my attention The Johnny Cash project. Basically, somebody has created a live-action music video for the song “Ain’t No Grave” which was released after his death, and through this project you can go online and claim a still frame from the video. You then recreate that frame in any medium you like, and submit it to the project. Eventually, all of the frames will be connected and we will have incredibly amazing memorial music video for a many who changed lives.Here’s a video that explains more:
And just because we can’t have a Sploosh Tuesday without the presence of an adorable kitty:
