Would you believe it’s more organised than the shop? I have a hard time spending more than a couple of minutes looking at their website before giving up in a moment of rage. The angry blinking clip art is the icing on the cake.
Listened all the way through the ArchAndroid Suites, and I loved all of it. As a whole it’s one of the most creative and densely layered albums I’ve heard in a while. I don’t think I could classify it as anything but awesome. This is probably my favourite out of all the songs.
“The point of public relations slogans like “Support our troops” is that they don’t mean anything… That’s the whole point of good propaganda.You want to create a slogan that nobody’s going to be against, and everybody’s going to be for.Nobody knows what it means, because it doesn’t mean anything.Its crucial value is that it diverts your attention from a question that does mean something: Do you support our policy? That’s the one you’re not allowed to talk about.”—
I would go for the postcards, but of course, I do have a bias.
I’m really, really tempted by the postcards. I’m going to pop into the shop tomorrow and see what the print looks like in real life. It wouldn’t look as dodgy and some of the properly aligned ones either.
Which (slightly tacky kitsch) fabric shall I make into a circle skirt? I need s a project of sorts to do this weekend, and circle skirts are within my ability. And I owe the shop (Ditto) a favour, since they were bloody lovely to me when I was 15 and had tonsillitis, and ended up having to sit in their backroom for a while because I was utterly and completely out of it.
I just can’t decide what level of tacky I’m aiming for. I’m tempted by the postcards.
