Nostalgia, Needles and Threads

I was sad to have to miss out on Gala‘s International Dress-Up Day #2 on Saturday. She had a theme I was looking forward to, dressing up as a character, but my work schedule wasn’t condusive for it. The results from those who did take part were impressive, though. Gala as Witch Baby and others as Garth from Wayne’s World, Sherlock Holmes, Lizzie Bennett from Pride and Prejudice, Oscar Wilde’s Dorian Gray, Tosca from Madame Butterfly, Strawberry Shortcake, Red Riding Hood, and the Queen of Hearts offered some fun from the sidelines.

I think I’ve found the geekiest (and hottest?) retro gaming tattoo ever in Electracat‘s Konami Code piece.

I don’t usually go in for a lot of nostalgic mucking, but sometimes it’s done right. No More Kings is a band that really knows how to play with nostalgia in a smart and fun way. Their debut video for “Sweep the Leg” is a perfect example. It’s a song from the perspective of the villain of the Karate Kid movie, and the video brings back some of the movie’s cast and also features Mr. Belding! Saved by the Bell was a staple of my childhood, so seeing him immediately brought a grin to my face. You can watch the video below.

  1. Have you ever noticed that nearly everyone who reads your blog is a woman? A young hot woman at that.

    There is no point to this question, it was just a random observation I made today.
