Happy July!

Here’s this month’s door art:

[This one is two pieces of scrapbooking paper as the background, two strips of border from a 2016 calendar (artwork by Adam Guan), and then another 2016 calendar picture (photograph by Kent Mason)]

I have been off and on searching for a half-remembered tumblr post for a while now, and it turns out it was actually two posts that my brain had combined together!

1. The first was some art by Alister Lockhart and some totally spot-on tumblr comments over at Totally Panda Coffee.

And heck, even if your own death is inevitable getting information out could help save other people, even if it can’t save you. ‘Here are 20 livestreams of the giant tentacle monster including how it moves and attacks, how can we beat it?’ is way more useful than ‘an entire city got wiped off the map and things smell vaguely of calimari idk man’ (from songofsunset)

2. And the second was a poem: Sometimes it hurts when people scorn internet culture, by Shiv (demisexualmerrill)

““Your generation would probably ‘livetweet’ the apocalypse” you say, and you laugh
You mean it as an insult, and I understand,
Or you don’t
because the word lies awkwardly on you tongue, stumbles as it leaves your lips, air quotes visible
You meant it as an insult, so you don’t understand, when I look into your eyes and say “Yes”
Because we would.
It would be our duty, as citizens on this earth
to document it’s end the best way we know
and if that means a second by second update
of the world going up in flames, or down in rain, or crushed under the feet of invading monsters
so be it.
It would mean a second by second update of
“I love you”
“I’m scared”
“Are you all right?”
“Stay close”
“Be brave”
It would mean a second by second update of the humanity’s connection with one another,
Proof of empathy, love, and friendship between people who may have never met in the flesh.
So don’t throw the word ‘Livetweet’ at me like a dagger, meant to tear at my ‘teenage superiority’
Because if the citizens of Pompeii, before they were consumed by fire,
had a chance to tell their friends and family throughout Rome
“I love you”
“I’m scared”
“Don’t forget me”
Don’t you think they’d have taken the chance?”

I didn’t watch any movies this weekend, but I did spend a lot of time thinking about the new Power Rangers movie.

And since I was just saying how I hadn’t seen any fan art for the movie, tumblr has now proved me wrong!

Check out this adorable art by Cahlac!

Close enough for March door art!

[Central picture is art by Evelia Sowash from a 2016 calendar; the rest is scrapbooking papers.]

[Extra note: I took this picture before I’d actually attached everything together. So it’s not quite as crooked as it looks in this!]

Mix it all up with a bunch of different scrapbooking papers and some paper hearts, and my door is ready for February!

January door art!

The elephant is a cutout from a calendar — art by Melody Hogan. The picture behind it is from an LL Bean catalog, and the rest of it is various scrapbooking papers.

2016 sure has been a year. May 2017 be a kinder and more joyful one. Stay safe — see you on the flip side!

Time to share the April door art! (Yay, I can upload pictures again! My incredibly poor strategy of doing nothing and hoping the problem resolved itself has, astonishingly, actually succeeded!)

This one was a lot of fun to make. Gluing pieces of paper to other pieces of paper is an activity I’ve never grown out of enjoying.

Celebration time: I just uploaded an image! Hey, haven’t been able to do that for a while; I didn’t actually think it would work. So the problem that I couldn’t figure out a cause for has somehow resolved itself. Thanks, technology!

Also, it seems like a good day to revisit the two cakes theory. (I’ve got tumblr attributing the comic to stuffman, but the original content link doesn’t seem to go anywhere.)

The article is actually from 2013, but I just saw it yesterday on tumblr…
