boy from mars

so in golion their names were metals and I kinda wish they would’ve kept them

Well, my very first musical love has passed away. I had to do something to pay homage to him and collages are what I seem to do these days.

There is a video of me singing, “Rebel, Rebel” when I was still in diapers. No more than 2 years old. He influenced my musical taste and so much of my life. This is a dark day. And cancer is shit.

Rest in peace, Goblin King, Ziggy Stardust… David Bowie. You will be missed by the world.


Today in Cool Stuff in the Mail, a delightful coloring book that perhaps has a little too much personal resonance for me (and yes, that is my own Tenth Doctor figure in that last photo).

I haven’t been able to get that much into the adult coloring book trend (I find them weirdly stressful, which I suspect means I’m missing the point) but this one … this one I can get behind.

Also, it made me go back to my bookshelf for this classic read …

and any reason to re-read Daniel Pinkwater is a good one (seriously people, Fat Men from Space is amazing, but if you haven’t read Alan Mendelssohn, the Boy From Mars, go get it RIGHT NOW).
