Feminine Hygiene Feature

Von Taylor: Ovulation, oil on Canvas

Well, it is about that time again, the witching week, when The OverDrone pays attention to the cycles of the moon. Although the OverDrone has never experienced the albuminous flux himself, the Menstruation Sisters have distilled their entire periods into a song which only lasts for one minute and fifty-seven seconds.It is a rough gruel of noises and rhythms and well worth a listen. Download Sister Sucker here from White Denim.

Passive-aggressive notes investigates the stress of multiple females using a single bathroom. The OverDrone is glad that his only concern in a public restroom is not peeing on his shoes.

The Diva cup has been covered in these pages before, but this merits attention. Pointless Drivel features them in a recent post, best of all there is an incredibly long comment section regarding the Diva cup. Users of the cup weigh in about halfway down.
Highlights include:

  • You know who uses diva cups? You ready for this shit? Bitches who PAINT with their own menstrual blood. That’s who uses diva cups.
  • I don’t think anything that big will fit up in my vagina, and even if it did…how are you supposed to get the damn thing out without spilling the liquid inside. Also, who the hell puts this thing in the dishwasher.
  • I’d hate to see someone walking down the sidewalk when that s.o.b. comes flying out after a long day.
  • My vagina once ate a condom, so there’s no way I’m putting a whole plastic cup in there. I might never get it back.

organised ideas records

Herv is an Irish fellow who makes blip-bloop music with his Gameboy. The OverDrone has listened through the album and finds it to be the aural equivalent of Mario eating too many mushrooms and then going to a rave where Yoshi kisses Sonic the HedgeHog, in a good way.
Organized Ideas Records has the album as a free download on their site. They are clearly an awesome label, just check out their logo:

Print it out kids, color it in on family trips, download the album while you are at it. Thanks to Nialler9 for keeping up with the Irish music scene so that The OverDrone doesn't have to.

BURO VORMKRIJGERS: FugitiveTransformer? Transfurniture

Buro Vormkrijgers is a Dutch design firm who are known for their Pong clock. It is a clock which wastes precious computer cycles in a game of Pong while telling the time.
The OverDrone is not concerned with that now. Observe the sequence of Photos above. First it is a low table, perfect for setting a drink upon, but wait, when you rest your weight on it, it transforms into a chair. The flames are courtesy of PhotoBucket's slide show thingy.

Man:MILK (Not what you think)

The OverDrone is glad that his children are past the point of needing this. Do you see the shock in the baby's eye? That child expected a soft creamy vat spilling over with milk, instead, this baby must suckle for hours before receiving a thin trickle from his father.
That baby is looking for his mother who is off somewhere, freed from the tyranny of motherhood. That father also wonders where mother is, his nipples hurt and it makes him feel funny. Soon after this picture was taken, he cried.

Eltingville Pilot, they went with Squidbillies intead of this?

Eltingville began in Evan Dorkin's comic Dork. The OverDrone hasn't watched Adult Swim since they relaunched Aqua Teen (like we needed more) but this would have brought him back. I guess their audience needed more Squidbillies.

Intolerant Lactose

The OverDrone usually has no time for spoiled milk and over-ripe cheese but has been a fan of these two since they first passed their sell by date.
From the bowels of Evan Dorkin's refrigerator come the denatured duo, Milk and Cheese. Evan Dorkin is one of the minds behind Space Ghost Coast to Coast, Eltingville (which never got past the pilot stage on Adult Swim). and currently, Yo Gabba Gabba.
