No more Octomom! She makes my head hurt!

No more OctoMom...

She hurts my eyes... she should be very busy anyway... eh? suckling...

Octomom reminds me of the sort of bubblegum "sculptures" I would make as a kid after eating bubblegum ice cream and spitting the balls out into a napkin.

I wonder what the story is behind the Undead Knees in Taiwan...
?

FlowFlowy(V) said...

I was wondering about the "undead" too... cooler than the Japanese dress up players...

@FlowFlowy,
Yeah, they seem to have a more serious agenda.

I like Superhumanoids. What do you think?

Akira said...

God, I want to remove that OctoMom from the post - yet, it does reminds me of bubble gum ice cream and being bored and annoyed returning from the Wine Country or some such BS with my parents and best friend as a kid and we would utilize our bubble gum to stick messages on the back window:
"Fuck you asshole."
"Shove it up your ass!"
etc., etc., until my parents stopped at 7-11 and wondered why those people were so hostile.
Thank God I'm an old fart and all I had was Eliza, PacMan and BBS' as a kid.

I jumped in to comment and thought I would be so original in saying "Please, no more Octomom" but I was simply to be lost in a crowd yelling the same thing.

BBS's! That will be hard to describe to my kids. Playing goofy MMOs with nothing but alphabet characters and punctuation marks. Cruising massive libraries of porn. Avoiding weirdos. And adding to my massive collection of Amiga and PC games. Which reminds me of my copyboard I had in my PC. Imagine having a piece of hardware that could overcome software protection! But then there was the dreaded code wheel, and the less difficult to subvert blue text manuals that would not make a clear copy on an average quality black and white copier.

Oh the memories. Selling games for $5 a disk and my Dad's Playboy/Penthouse collection through junior high.

I never thought I'd hear myself say that, but I do, almost every day. When my time comes I won't be sad about it at all.

>> Akira --- I'll check out the SuperH... you sound like you had a lot of fun when young... revolutionary training... stickem in the eye... pie...

I remember looking at Playboy's when I babysit some kids and thinking "wow... what planet are these women on?"

Hi Edgar! Spring's here! Tweet/Tweet!

Hi Flowy!

FlowFlowy(V) said...

Cool Akira... I'm going listen to those songs... thankum...

Hi Edgar... you posted right as I landed on this page... tweet... tweet...

@W,
Yeah, one had to work a little harder to get into trouble online in those days and I was never dumb enough to use my real name like kids today. I will never miss the godawful printers though.

@Edgar,
I know what you mean.

@Flowy,
Actually, when comparing vintage Playboys with contemporary ones, I think the women actually looked less alien back then. They didn’t have octo-lips and a ton of other work done.
