It is my hope that she has simply taken a much deserved unscheduled pre-Halloween “vacation” and will be back in online communication soon.
Before going dark, LaurenKitsune was good enough to write and transmit a report on the Slender Man phenomenon sweeping the Internet. That report is published here fo

If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it.
Today, Lady Gaga’s throne as a reigning pop diva is a 24 carat gold wheelchair, emergency hip surgery forcing the cancellation of her latest tour – a betrayal more devastating for her than for the typical performer, given her relationship with her fans. Her body has finally broken in sacrifice to the needs of her monsters for constant contact and reassurance. The question now is whether this brutal brush with her own mortality will result in the pop goddess pulling back from the edge – or only drive her to new heigh

I just wanted to make a quick announcement! The USPS (what I use to send all packages) recently raised the price of United States first class parcels as well as Delivery Confirmation. To reflect this change, I unfortunately have the raise the price of United States shipping from $2.80 to $3.00. I hope you all understand this change! I do everything I can to keep shipping costs low, but this particular change is out of my control. International price will stay the same at $3.50 per package, as it doesn't come with delivery confirmation and is unaffected by this change.
Thank you for your understanding! ♥ Shipping costs will change on the website and Etsy, so there's nothing you as the buyer need to do, except shake your fist at your local post office. ;D

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming in Personal More Like This

You may have noticed that today is a momentous day in the field of llamas. Due to their unexpected popularity, we have decided to tweak the llama levels a bit, in order to maximize fun and fairness for every deviant around -- from llama aficionados to those who simply dabble in llamas from time to time.
What llamas? Glad you asked!
Behold, the new breakdown of llamas! (If you dislike spoilers and wish to achieve the levels by pure surprise, then keep scrolling.)
= 1 (Llama)
= 10 (Super Llama)
= 50 (Albino Llama)
= 100 (Super Albino Llama)
= 500 (Ninja Llama)
= 1,000 (Fancy Llama)
= 2,500 (King Llama)
= 5,000 (Spartan Llama)
= 7,500 (Wizard Llama)
= 10,000 (Golden Llama)
There you have it! So many awesome reasons to stay connected to the community and to search out new and undiscovered deviants. Share the wealth, my friends. Share it.

This time, Time Scribble is armed with firealpaca and music. Wish her luck in her battle to live.

So! The ball is really rolling for Metrocon now. I'm starting to get panel times together provisionally, as well as our panel content.
For those of you attending Metrocon... I always find that I rush to the evening parties, and never end up staying long. So, I was considering putting in one "late" panel at 9-10pm on Friday night, perhaps to screen videos that we haven't shown before, and generally have a bit of a laugh. Would people be interested in this, or do you prefer to go to the parties?
