So, it’s time we kick this blog off!
We’ve all seen those planking photos, we know how memes go viral in a matter of days and, at some point, we’ve all stopped and thought “What the holy hell is all this about?”
Well, now it’s time for you to get in on the action!
THE TATTERED TOWER WANTS YOU!
For what, you say?
Well, listen in. As part of an ongoing project to get The Tattered Tower off the ground, we want the help of everyone who has seen the shop, haunts the blog, ‘likes’ the Facebook fan page or has got a serious case of boredom to get behind this.
We want YOU to help us photoblog TTT’s progress! How? Take a picture of yourself holding a sign for the shop, this blog or the Facebook group, or simply with “The Tattered Tower” clearly visible and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org with any details you want to include so we can post it here on the blog!
Please remember that we don’t want anything illegal, pornographic, racist or anything else that will get you or me into trouble.
The best photo each month will get a special prize sent to them for being such a good sport, and all entries will be given a discount code for the store :)
Your last post was mostly covered by the picture.
Yeah, the skin is tarding out or something. I’ll see if I can’t fix it.
While I’m sad, but not quite as devistated as some people, about the closing down of a whole stack of Boarders stores here in Aus, I managed to score a FANTASTIC book when I should have been getting art supplies yesterday.
CHLOROFORM - The quest for oblivion
By Linda Stratmann
(Can be found HERE on Amazon)
This book is fantastic. I’m not normally one for non-fiction but this book is so well written that I can barely put it down. Not only does it cover the origins of chloroform and its uses and eventual demise, but also goes into some wonderful history about the gruesome medical practices in the 17th century.
Can you imagine the pain of being operated on without any kind of anesthetic? How about, rather than a general, being given a whole bottle of whisky to ‘dull the pain’. If that doesn’t do it for you, there’s always being bled out until you go unconsious before they cut into you. Or wearing a wooden helmet until they knock you hard enough to knock you out cold. But hey, it’s your call.
For a five-dollar book thanks to an impulse buy, this has certainly paid off. It’s a fantastic read and is great for some ‘just-before-you-sleep’ browsing. Hell, it even has some pictures in the middle! Truly something for everyone.
In other news, I am now completely infatuated with that owl livecam. I startled my housemates this morning by making retarded “SQUEEE” noises as the mother owl came back with a mouse to feed the babies. The food chain has never been so adorable. I even felt so inspired by these delightful puff-balls that I went and painted a few ink pictures last night. I’ll have some pictures of them up soon when I list them on my Etsy.
Anyhoo, until next time,
