I’ve paid tribute to GWAR in a few of my posters, and now with the recent death of Dave Brockie (a.k.a. Oderus Urungus), here they are in one post. I didn’t make the one with him in it, but I like it, so I’m including it.
R.I.P., Dave! I hope you got to Metal Metal Land safely.
First four, top to bottom: Boku Wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai; Death Sweeper; K-On; and Excel Saga, a title that is just as consistently f***ed up as GWAR’s music, videos, and live shows.
Reblogging for my music page.
Artix Pony cross-stitch
I made this … oh, maybe two, three, years ago? when AE came out with their Ponies vs Ponies game, and promptly forgot about it. But then I started playing Battle Gems, and dug this back out … No clue what I should do with it though. The hoop made a lot of dirt marks on the fabric :P I should clean it someday.
I didn’t actually use a pattern for this. Just overlaid a grid on the picture and went from there, guesstimating my way through. It doesn’t seem too off, proportion-wise. Although I think I probably should’ve made the background full cross stitch instead of half, and/or used a lighter color for the grass things, whatever they are. (Too lazy to make flowers)
The border is pulled from the theme song by Kimberly Freeman/One-Eyed Doll. (It gets in your head, so fair warning if you’re going to listen.) I was going to use the “rainbowy ponies and sunshiny ponies” line for the longer sides, but it’d be missing a few ‘and’s and I thought the endless nature of “ponies and ponies” fit better with the song … and the ridiculousness of how that game came into being in the first place.
Wow, I’m impressed with your mad skills! Just sent a screenie to Artix. I think he’ll love it, too.. xo -kimberly
I’ve imagined myself using that song for a lullabye for my baby niece, and her Mom and Dad looking at me like I lost my mind.
