Series: Part 3 of Identification

London, 2081. Thirteen days, eighteen hours, and twenty-three minutes ago, John Watson grabbed James Moriarty around the neck and told Sherlock to run. It doesn’t make sense. Humans created the Three Laws of Robotics, required robots to protect humans above all else. There is no precedent for the reverse.

Sherlock needs more data.

This beautiful piece of Calvin and Hobbes embroidery, based on the back cover illustration of the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip collection Scientific Progress Goes “Boink”, is the work of Oak Park, IL-based artist Laura Hartrich, created for her son’s birthday. Hartrich is a self-taught embroiderer and commented on Reddit, saying this piece is her most detailed work to date. She also described the process of making it:

"-Buy Scientific Progress Goes Boink -Hide it from son for over a year so I can use it as a reference -Go to library, make an enlarged copy of the back cover -Use carbon paper to transfer the main lines of the illustration onto fabric -Fill in all the color -Go back and add black details

I tried to match the DMC floss I was using to the back cover as closely as I could. The colors aren’t always perfect. Some of those watercolors are just so delicate. There wasn’t always floss pale enough to match. I did my best.”

As this particularly piece was a gift for Laura’s lucky son, it’s not for sale. But you can find others available via her Etsy shop, Tiny Scissor Times, where she also accepts custom commissions.

proposed new gender label: alexigender

Meaning “a fluid gender experience, where you are aware that your gender is changing but cannot label each individual gender”

ie: I know my gender is different today than it was yesterday, but I don’t know which genders those are

bonus etymology: prefix a- means “none, lack of”, root lexi- meaning “words”. Alexigender = not having words for gender

"Ace Hardware: No screwing, just lots of screws."

"Ace Hardware: Nail your roof, not your partner."

"Ace Hardware: For when it really is just a hammer in your pocket"

One of my friends wanted to see a photomanip of the ace hardware logo in ace flag colors, and then I thought of these terrible puns, so here you go.

At first I wasn’t going to reblog this but then I saw it again and just started laughing

my two favorite things: asexuality, and puns

and those puns are literally the best

I NEED more asexual puns

those are indeed the best

"Ace Hardware: Lube for your motor, not your junk"

"Ace Hardware: Erecting buildings, not your penis"

"Ace Hardware: Where nuts aren’t genetalia"

"Ace Hardware: The hammer is not our penis. Its just a hammer."

"Ace Hardware: Where muff, is short for muffler"

"Ace Hardware: Yes that is a hammer, but we’re still happy to see you."

"Ace Hardware: You can get Off in our repellent aisle

Roy DeCarava

"DeCarava (pronounced dee-cuh-RAH-vah) turned his lens on the neighborhood of Harlem during the 1940s, ’50s and ’60s, depicting the everyday African American experience from an insider’s perspective.

His work, painterly studies of shadow and darkness, transcended racial boundaries, juxtaposing stark black-and-white tonality with highly impressionistic composition.

DeCarava was the first black photographer to receive a Guggenheim fellowship with the receipt of a $3,200 grant in 1952. His first major exhibit was at the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego in 1986; one decade later came a landmark solo retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art.”

I do not want a documentary or sociological statement. My goal is a creative expression, the kind of penetrating insight and understanding of Negroes which I believe only a Negro photographer can interpret. —Roy DeCarava
