Frame Thing

Frame Thing

Earlier this year, I paused while watching the Simpsons episode Itchy & Scratchy Land and caught, entirely by chance, that amazing frame above.

That it’s a great frame is obvious. Bart’s expression and body language, his revelry is such a great reason for Lisa to look so ashamed, while poor old Itchy just screams with his eyes.

I love this frame so much I wanted to capture it again, only this time directly from the episode and not with my camera from the television. In doing so, I discovered something pretty interesting.

The frame, isolated thus, lies.

On Not Working

Here’s a gallery of stuff I did instead of working while at work over the summer.

To begin, I saw this window nearly every day and wondered just what that little piece of paper actually said. That larger building is also part of where I worked. To be honest, the premises covered about half of a really long road and beyond out the back. Moreover, I often wondered if I could even find the window.

IMG_20160719_094355Find the window I did, however, as evidenced by this shot of me pointing at where I’d been when I took the previous shot.

IMG_20160719_094714And of course, the prize itself.

IMG_20160719_094637“Causing a nuisance” is probably the best thing about this, but I also really like the phrasing. “Getting in” would have been more appropriate. “Entering the building” makes it sound like the pigeons have far more decision-making capability than they actually do.

Actually, forget that. The real best part of it is the evidence.

IMG_20160719_094640What, you didn’t believe us? Well, we killed and stripped a pigeon just in case.

Next, some casual devil praise.

Sometimes, there’s things I see that I literally cannot help but mentally edit. Here is such.

IMG_20160728_115419In this case, I felt compelled to physically edit.

IMG_20160728_115507The improvement is obvious and immediate.

Lastly, I got tired of seeing the names of retirees on my office door every day. Phyll and Mav are long gone and no entryway plaque can do justice to their memory.

IMG_20160728_112431So I invented some new lads.

IMG_20160728_112600Sadly this mischief bug caught me quite late in the summer (effectively replacing my sanity as the months wore on) so I haven’t more to show for it. I doubt my next few months will see as much opportunity for messing so that’s the lot for now. Slong.

Celebrating Ephemera – Attitude Clothing Co. Catalogue 8 (2001)

I love finding stuff that was never destined for preservation and preserving the straight Jesus out of it, and I recently came across a treasure trove of 90s gaming magazines in my wife’s dad’s attic. Thus, the following, which sits comfortably in neither of the specified categories, there. Oh well.

A Rambleast Review: Suicide Squad

A Rambleast Review: Suicide Squad

The state of things. I mean honestly.

I came out of Suicide Squad, the third bad film in a row in what can no longer apologetically be dismissed as merely a shaky start to DC’s fledgling cinematic canon, shaking my head and thinking “the state of things, I mean honestly.” Sure I’m no age at all and I’m too old for this film.

Six Years Bloggin’ – Killing Time (Some Film Reviews)

I registered with WordPress six years ago today, and having just been notified of that I’d like to post something in line with what I created the site for in the first place: context-free musings on unimportant things. I’ve watched a bunch of films recently and here’s what I thought of ’em.
