Hell on wheels....

First a disclaimer. This post is my opinions and views, if you disagree, good for you.
Roller derby.
I watched a documentary on the Texan team who caused the "revival" of roller derby in early 2000's. That was years ago. I liked what I saw, it looked like fun, and at the same time a form of fitness that doesn't seem like fitness. I lived in Finland then, and there were no derby teams there, it was not very well known back then.
So when we moved, my first mission was to find the local team and get to their fresh meat.
The first year I developed skills, speed and it was all so much fun. I love skating, even today. But then the clouds started appearing, the unnecessary politics, the cliques, the "high school" drama, popularity contests etc. The plagues that always riddle the gaggles of females.
Then there was springtime when we all kept on getting ill with random bugs, so that of course took my attendance from about 99% to about 80%. That also meant that certain aspects of hobby were not allowed, like taking part in "play-game" that was meant for us "un-skilled". Which of course was something that kept me going to the practice anyway, the chance of getting to play, even if it was unofficial. Happy to take my money but also happy to restrict things too.
The fun part is also the minimum skills requirements. If you can skate around the track like the fucking Flash, braid your pubes while juggling a sharknado on your right arm and do cartwheels with your ears and jump across the room, blindfolded and holding on to your knee, then you are all good to go. The requirements were getting harder and harder, and have very little to do with safety, more about tactics.
So to me, something that you would get better with actually playing.
There were just too many rocks on that path for me, the fun started to get drained out of practice and it turned into something I didn't look forward to anymore either, so I knew after 2 years, it was my time to stop.
I was going nowhere. I still miss skating, sorely. It was the first form of getting fit I absolutely loved.
It's just all the rest of it I didn't like.
I still think about skating, and wanting to get a group together just for the fitness, but for now, the wheels are just in the bag.

Up with the cock....

So, we got lucky enough to get to enjoy the local raging stomach bug, first it hit the kiddo, then me, then the saddo. Projectile voms, shits, and terrible cramps and muscle ache. So I was comforting myself during these long long nights with Geordie Shore marathons, and I got so inspired with all the cock riding on it, that I really have a terrible urge to ride some cock myself now.
blurgh.

Glitter!

Some time ago,  I got a small shipping crate that was destined to the bin, and I made it into a box of my treasures (aka something I shove all the shit off the floor when I clean....).
Bit of paint, glitter and a set of hinges made it into a nice little box, and as I quite like the outcome, I'm gonna do the same to the top of my crafts table.

I used metal effect paint to the side, and just high shine purple paint to the rest of it, then heaps of glitter, and top it with 2 layers of varnish I bought from the poundshop. Did it outdoors as the varnish and some furniture paints are thinner based and stink awful.

Pimpin up a hoodie...

I've had this hoodie for ages, bought it from a bootsale for a quid, and I still love it. Unfortunately it started to have little holes, and general signs of wear, so I thought to freshen it up with some fabric scraps I had in a pile......




I also threw it in a dye bath, not very good colour, but it gives a nice surface for the fabric patches. I put some glitter glue to the edges to keep them from fraying like bitches, and I embroidered the edges, to make a little extra effect.

Quick crafts....

I have been crafting, can't seem to stick to one thing though, so a bit random.... I have also been watching Geordie Shore. I'm still not sure why. I think it's so shit, that it becomes good. Similar to VH1 shows few years back, Rock of Love and Flavor of Love. Seriously. Those were definitely some of the best reality shows I have watched, as they are full of unbelievably psychotic loonies.
I've kept myself out of political discussions too, as I cannot fathom how people can't accept the concept of freedom of thought. I don't agree with a lot of things with the majority of people, but I just blame it on their stupidity ;) , but I let them think what they want. It is their opinions. Opinions are like assholes, everybodys got one.
 A cheap shirt got a little DDLM- makeover....

 Made a kimonosleeve tunic from stretch satin
 Fixed a new zipper to my bargain vintage dress, 2 euros it cost me....
Anglerfish hama...
 Brain slug hama
Dr. Zoidberg...

Went to a techfest in the Oceanlab here, it was very good, deep sea creatures are more fascinating than people. Now I have a terrible urge to try make an anglerfish hat for myself. It's my poweranimal, you can keep your eagles and wolves :D
Back to more crafting......

It ain't over 'til the fat man resigns

It's done, the referendum, and people are still at each others throats.
Can't people just lose/ win with dignity, respect the others right to have a different view, and just continue with their own lives....
As I'm fed up with the BS, here's surprisingly enough more fucking pictures......


 It's been like this for 4 days now. Nice.....
Light up some candles to bring a bit of warmth...
 Spiderwebs EVERYWHERE!
 Some fabrics I dyed years ago....



 Some stencilling from the other day...
 Rocking my SOA shirt
 Humidity a bit high.....

Exhibition and boob clouds.

So. Went to the art gallery to see the Kaffe Fassett exhibition. I've seen his designs on crafty mags I used to subscribe, and I love his fabrics, so the exhibition wasn't to be missed. It was lovely. All the colours, especially today when the morning sun turned into a fucking rain....
Also now I know that if I want to have a chav free moment, the art gallery has no chavs hanging about, so will have to visit soon again...I managed to get a "new" camera too, so been playing with it. I used to have a very old Konica Minolta digicamera, but it was good for pic quality, so decided to try my luck on a certain bidding site for a slight upgrade, and got one for about 20 notes.
It's a long way from the posh expensive cameras that every selfserving hipster dick and blogger has to take pictures of their daily style pics of shit that every other fucker buys from the local H&M.....
Let's crack on shall we.....
 New camera takes nice crisp images of a very crisp hound....
 There has been art project dolphins scattered about for charity, now they were all in one place
 so people can see them all before they are auctioned off.
 Some local lingo on this one....
 More cam play
 .....macro works too....

 Knitted dolphin, brilliant!
 Kaffe Fassett exhib, I just looooooove the colours....
If I just grab this and walk away, nobody will notice, yeah......
 I want this jumper!
 Was a really good exhib to see!
Some boob clouds. Officially known as mammatus clouds...Look a bit creepy!
