All for the likes – a modern fairy tale

All for the likes – a brief modern fairy tale

Social media can definitely be a force for good but I think we’re all too aware it has a darker side too. Social media influencer Kylie here is so tied up in her impeccably curated Instagram profile and getting more likes for each and every picture that she posts that she decided to have a modified Facebook ‘love’ tattoo done in an attempt to hit the magical 500K followers where apparently those lucrative but elusive sponsorship deals start rolling in.

Sadly all she got was a notification from Instagram saying the post contravenes policy and her entire account had been suspended pending an investigation. It’s currently unclear if she lives happily ever after.

The average colour of the universe

In 2001, Karl Glazebrook and Ivan Baldry determined that the average colour of the unirvers was a greenish white. It came to light just a year later that they corrected their own flawed analysis and reported that their survey of the light from over 200,000 galaxies averaged to a slightly beigeish white.

It turns out that wasn’t even the focus of their studies but I guess sometimes you learn what life throws your way. Now, quite what that means for us I’m not quite sure. It’s actually been called ‘cosmic latte’ which sounds better than beige. Saying that I had to work with ‘sahara beige’ as that was the closest colour match I could find. So there you have it.

Limbprecise

As a casual viewer of artworks on the internet in this information age I’m pretty sure you’re going to tell me that i’ve drawn this lady with too many arms. In fact you are ‘limbprecise’, to use a portmanteau I’ve just coined although I’m sure you can gleam the meaning. Less of the semantics and more of the story though.

Marigold lived for many years in a genuine mad scientist’s laboratory – which is where the extra limbs come from. The mad scientist had always admired Dr Otto Gunther Octavius (or Doctor Octopus as he’s more commonly known) from when he was read comics as a child and always thought that a set of extra arms would make life so much easier.

So why give the arms to Marigold I hear you ask? There’s a simple answer for this. He only ever managed to grow two sets of arms, one set grew to be big and strong but the other never really grew properly and stayed a bit scrawny. This just wouldn’t do as he wanted the biggest, baddest arms of any mad scientist. Anyway after a few years the two sets were all he could come up with, so he thought he might as well use them. He’s now trying to figure out what to with all the legs he’s grown and has lying around the lab. Maybe create a wall crawling human spider? No, that would never work…

Cheers

Turn up the speaker…

Hmmmm. What wise words can I impart about today’s offering? Well, sometimes art is all about a clever idea executed well and sometimes it’s just titillation. Today’s piece is firmly in the latter camp but sometimes we can do naught but follow the muse. 

I’m not quite sure what music is playing but it’s definitely bass heavy. That much is for sure. And the speaker goes up to 11. I’m pretty sure we can get away with a few extra decibels…

First ever selfie

The year is 1839 and the prize that is at stake is the first selfie ever. The internet will tell you that American photography pioneer Robert Cornelius took the first ever selfie but I would contend that Roche Bobois, seen here posing in front of some mystery minimal graffiti, took this selfie some weeks before.

I’m not at liberty to reveal how we came to be in 1839 with a can of pink and an ‘X’ stencil but suffice it to say we’ve now returned the DeLorean to it’s rightful owner with a little note of apology under one of the windscreen wipers.

In Like Flint

With the addition of Maria de los Muertos on drums it would seem that the line up for my all-girl Prodigy tribute band, In Like Flint, is finally complete. 

Along with Mandrogynous on vocals and Introverdent on keyboard I’ve now got a bona fide girl band with enough firepower to take on the mighty Red Hot Chilli Poppers. The world of tribute bands will never be the same once I get these girls on the road…

Gotcha!

I got you didn’t I? Punch yourself in the arm and we’ll call it quits. Do people even play the circle game anymore? Given the stupidity of the game I think we can safely assume that it’s only the male part of the population who have ever played. If you know then it needs no explaining and if you don’t then that’s what the internet is for. That’s it for today…
