V.I.P. (Vincent Inspired Persons) Contest

Happy Birthday, Victoria Price!

In celebration of she and her Dad's birthdays,
I'm giving away a signed copy of her book!

I was going to do an art contest for it,
but don't want to be limiting. Because:

I got this magnet from Victoria ♥ You can get them here!

So you can create anything inspired by Vincent you wish!
Such as a poem or a culinary dish.

(Speaking of which,
you can pre-order one of his cookbooks here!)

Post your creation on your blog,
then link to it on the V.I.P. list below.
Or email it to me and I'll post it here for you.

Winner will be picked randomly on May 26,
and announced on Vincent's birthday, May 27.

May will also be Master Of Menace Month here.
So if you'd like to do a guest post on Vincent,
or any of his movies, please email me!

Edie Ellen Poe and the Enchanted Emerald Earrings

In the shadows of Oz lurks wee, Edie Ellen,
Cooking's a skill she excels in,
She wears enchanted emerald earrings,
To bewitch sweet young things,
How many munchkins she's et', there's no tellin'!

See what Edie and her vampire cat Raven are cooking up here

Edie and Raven were created by Martha Hull.
I took the photo for her Poegirl Challenge,
which you can get all the info on here.

The photo and poem are also for Celebrate Oz,
an annual event hosted by the lovely Oma Linda,
which you can join here.

Since the theme this year is Shadow of Oz,
I want to share two favorite, fitting songs:

Music is usually my muse,
but those earrings were the inspiration for this post.
When I got them from my aunt a few weeks ago,
I knew I had to write about them.

I'm inspired by everything around me though,
just like another muse of mine, Ray Bradbury:

This post is also for The Narrator's Study's event,
Introduce Your Muse, which you can join here.

March Mecha Madness Winner

First off, hope you all had a happy Bunday!
MetalHare by RalphNiese. Check out more scary hares here.

I ended up only doing two Bad Bot Battles, 
since there didn't seem to be much interest in them.

And the baddest bot is...

As you can see, you can buy your own life-sized Robby here!
If you're insanely rich that is.
If not, I'd go for this:

Robby The Robot Alarm Clock available here.

I assume it plays hits from the 70's,
since he apparently really digs them:

Check out his victory boogie!

Did you know Robby was also a Detective?
He even worked with Columbo!
Read all about Robby in Starlog Magazine #007 here.
