Just a bit of escapism

News Challenge to explore role of libraries in the digital age

Hoping to finish the His Golden Lair scarf tomorrow. Then on to my friend’s socks and the charity knitting I hope to accomplish before the weather gets too cold. I’ve already got a pair of fingerless gloves I can give away (too big, barely worn, and a nice soft wool blend), and then probably a hat or two. Deciding between a cowl and a scarf to complete the ‘set,’ so to speak. 

To Ravelry!

if you want to understand the psyche of our generation take a good look at the stories we tell ourselves about the future

because it isn’t flying cars or robot dogs, it’s faceless government surveillance and worldwide pandemics and militarized police brutality and the last dregs of humanity struggling to survive

our generation isn’t self-centered, or lazy, or whatever else they wanna say about us. we are young, and we are here, and we are deeply, deeply afraid.

Juuuust now realizing I can show my piece for the Iron Giant tribute show as well!  Judging from this and my Bioshock piece, I’m really into trompe l’oeil and obscure references right now.
The Iron Giant is still one of my favourite animated films, and Dean is still one of my favourite animated hotties. Mmmm boy.

Fuuuuck. I have to work the weekend TF Con is on. Also have to work during AwesomeCon. October is not kind to me.
