The most awesome Pikachu plushie ever

So I screencapped this little picture of Pikachu sleeping:

And then I thought: I would love a stuffed version of Pikachu sleeping. And behold! I sent some money to the fantabulous Summer (she is @AvonDelta on Twitter) and she made me THIS AWESOME PLUSHIE. OMG, you guys, it's the best thing in the world. Behold!

And when you're done beholding, contact her for your own commissioned plushie! She is awesomely awesome! If you aren't on Twitter, leave a comment or email me for her contact info.

Beatles + Harry Potter = WIN

I'm not a Potter fan - I've never even read the books - but my gorgeous and talented friend Ragdoll is, and she posted this recently to her Livejournal:

glockgal is one of my fave fan artists (and she did the awesome Bill/Tonks/Kingsley for me at weasley_fest last year so if she never did anything else again, I would love her). But she's recently started doing Beatles fanart along with her other favourite things. She just posted this which is just...incredible. Of course, now I've got stoned 'pudlians muttering "Where's the bus?" in ridiculous voices in my head, but it's all groovy, man, groovy. Too damn cute. And perfect. Go and gaze upon it and marvel.

I second that. Here's a little preview, but please click through to get the full effect of the Beatles as wizards teaching at Hogwarts. I love this.

3 Times the Magic

Not just copper! Not just magnets! Not just Jesus!


Jesus actually looks a little constipated here. Maybe he needs to wear a really big one around his waist. Jesus Magic Bling!

This was in my Sunday paper.

52 Songs #17 - Blondie, Fan Mail

This week: Fan Mail, Blondie, from the lp Plastic Letters, released in 1977.

So at the same time I was listening to Mott the Hoople and Queen, I was also discovering the NYC punk scene. I still have the original lp of Plastic Letters, which I think I bought at Bleeker Bob's around 1979 or so. Something about these early Blondie records really appealed to me, although in general I'm not a big fan of the guy-band-fronted-by-woman concept; maybe it was because Debbie wrote songs, making it clear that Blondie was her and Chris Stein's band. "Fan Mail", despite its dense lyrics, spoke to me about the kind of fannish hero worship I was just starting to engage in. (And still do. Still available to be Steve Merchant's girlfriend!) This song always makes me remember those times when I stayed awake too long, listening to loud music, and I got dem ol' teenage angst blues again.

Great guitars, too.

Come back next week for another of the 52 songs!

Logan Likes Green Lantern

Like that's news to anyone.

Read his review and yeah, I need to watch this so we can talk about it. Logan says:

One night instead of watching endless reruns of Bravo shows, I decided to retire to my room and watch First Flight on my laptop. I got so wrapped up in the movie that I didn’t hear my dad come in and tap me on the shoulder to tell me that someone was on the phone for me. When he tapped me I literally jumped a few inches off my bed and screamed, “oh crap!” The movie was that engaging.

Logan Likes Black Wade

Logan and I saw this gay pirate porn out on the webs and thought it would be great - well, it is. Logan reviews it here and we'll be talking about it on the show at some point, after I read it. Lovely lovely art! Logan says:

When I ordered it on Amazon I assumed Black Wade was going to be erotica. I brought it along with me on a NYE mountain retreat with a bunch of my straight friends. When we were all sitting around reading books after breakfast one day, when I tore off the plastic wrap and popped open the book. Lo and behold! Thar be pirate booty getting plowed by pirate penis, matey! Arrrrgggh!

52 Songs #16 - It Ain't Easy When You Fall, Ian Hunter

This week: It Ain't Easy When You Fall, Ian Hunter, from the lp Ian Hunter, released in 1975.

Another legacy from my brother. He was lucky enough to see Mott the Hoople in NYC in 1974, when Queen opened for them, and we listened to a lot of Mott - and later, Ian Hunter's solo stuff - for many years after that. His first solo album began his long collaboration with Mick Ronson and this song shows off the kind of anthemic, honest music they were capable of. The lyrics touch on loss, and loneliness, and isolation, but end with a flash of hope. Listen all the way through the spoken word part.

I only saw him & Ronson once, opening for the Kinks in, um, 1979 or 1980, and they fucking rocked. I haven't followed what old Ian's been up to lately, but he's got a great website and is still recording and preforming. And damn: he's 70 years old!

"...but sometimes when I've written a song...it's alright."

Come back next week for another of the 52 songs!
