The Happy Black Octopus


While stumbling around Tribe the other day, I ran across a member who had intriguing pictures. These led me to her blog, The Sticky Vat, which, in turn, led me to her etsy shop - Mary Louise's Treacle - where I found the most delightful array of Octopi art. Enjoy!

Engineers from Ecotricity are working to establish how a 20m blade mysteriously fell off a turbine at Conisholme wind farm - but residents have their own conclusions.

It is believed the a blade fell off the 89m turbine and another was left badly bent on Sunday January 4.

Speculation has continued amongst residents in Conisholme and the surrounding villages with some saying they saw strange flashing tentacle shaped lights above the wind farm on the night before it happened.

Mr John Harrison, Saltfleetby described how on Saturday night, January 3 he looked out of his landing window to see a 'massive ball of light' with 'tentacles going right down to the ground' over Conisholme wind farm.

"It was huge" he said "At first I thought it must have been a hole where the moon was shining through but then I saw the tentacles – it looked just like an octopus.

"It was an incredible site; I have never seen anything like it before. I have no idea what it was, all I can say is what I saw".

Our Horrible Mistake

Once again, our man-on-the-street Stache has led us to greatness in art and most especially, tentacle-related art.

Check out this excellent piece by British artist Candice Tripp, wonderfully entitled Our Horrible Mistake.

Dig into her web site bit - creepy little girls and tall men with striped pants - you won't be disappointed...

Obey My Brain

Squidhat!


My life is now complete. My fella has opened his main Chanukah present.

Fleece squid by Obey My Brain Creations: ObeyMyBrain.etsy.com. Many styles, sizes and patterns available, including a zombie squid! The vendor was prompt, friendly, and even accommodated my custom order during the holiday rush.

P.S. I am told that Squidhats can also double as cuddly decorative pillows.
