In the interest of debriefing after several long and *headdesk* inducing meetings today I sit before my laptop and troll the internets, only to find:

AAAAAAHHHH!!! Sauron in the 60's, with the accompanying text. Be afraid, be very afraid. (And be sure to explore the rest of LILEKS (James)'s website for more bizarre pop culture and snark.)



"He’s Sauron, baby, and he’s back in town! Yes, the all-seeing eye that embodies evil and domination is groovier than ever, thanks to today’s modern paints, modern brushes, modern designers and modern drugs! Don’t forget to paint the tub to match the pupil, because GOD KNOWS no one will ever want a plain white bathtub again. Oh, sure, some plastic people might want it white, but let those phonies ask a Rockefeller for a new one, okay? This is the Age of Aquarius. If it’s moving, offer it a bong hit. If it’s not, paint it."

Just be sure to keep the eyeball bleach and scrubber handy

ETA: Pardon me! Sauron in the 70's! not 60's. I recognize the black and white check wallpaper from that in my older brother's room in the 70's. I had the same pattern... in puce.

I don't even want to imagine how you ended up at that site. *stick fingers in ears* Don'ttellmeDon'ttellmeDon'ttellme!

*snicker*

I downloaded the optional "Stumble" function with the latest version of Firefox. My mouse-clicker finger is sore.. but I'm happy. :D

Oh... and James Lileks has a blog, too. Seems he's a writer. And a dad. He writes charming anecdotes about his little daughter, whom he affectionately refers to as "Gnat." I'm a sucker for fathers and daughters, but this is of the re-affirming your faith variety of "Pappa head over heels for his little girl" stuff.

Just a good guy.

LOL! Omygosh!

First off, love the icon--Yay it's the Doctor!

But wow, blast from the past icky!!! Now at the time of all this dreadful decor I think I had yellow Holly Hobby wallpaper with shag green carpeting, yellow bedspreads and hideous lime green bell bottoms with Ernie and Bert on them! :D Oh the joy of the 70's!

Anyone else have textured wallpaper, little dangerous fuzzy edges to poke you when you leaned too close? :) And I was so glad when that horrible mustard color went out of style...and now it's back but they keep calling it fancy names, but at least we don't have the checked wallpaper to 'match'!

Thanks for sharing....er I think! ;)

Hee! Can't wait for Doc #10's DVD's to become available here in the States.

Uhm... first, adult me says, "Ew," but then 7 year old me says, "KEWL!" :D

I have seen the fuzzy wallpaper. That fuzzy stuff is called, say it with me now, "Flocking," as in "flockin' wallpaper!" :D

ROTFL! The scariest part is that, like you, I recognize some of the furniture, wallcoverings, etc.
I wonder if the eye of Sauron design is a misguided attempt at Art Deco.

*snork* Probably. Somewhere, someplace, Frank Lloyd Wright is stumbling around dizzily in his grave.

1) Thanks :) I'm having all kinds of fun cobbling them together.

2) *snork* He's not one to give off any double-messages, is he. GMTA
