 I lucked out in as much as I (1.) have brilliant parents, AND (2.) am the meat of a girl-sandwich as far as having spent my formative years with both and older and a younger brother.  (Eventually I had a little sister too, but by then the foundations were set.)  By the early to mid nineties, the near future already held for me afternoons of Mathcounts, Mathletes, and even some Math/Science camp.  (The single day thing was during the school year, but the summer science thing also cool.)   I also don't throw like a girl and know I can take a punch if necessary.  Anyhow, much of my "awesomeness" appears to have stemmed from competitive & cooperative play with boys. 

Another factor: when the local BEST closed after many defunct years, there was a sale.  It is one of my earlier memories.  And at this sale, the house acquired 3 (maybe 4,) of the 6 Voltron Lions.

  Technically I don't think we could actually put them together, since it was Yellow, Blue, Green, and I don't know if we had a red one. They were like modular transformers that we couldn't really do anything modular with. but you could fold them from Lion to... appendage shapes, which was kind of weirdly amusing.   Anyhow, the best one was the Green Lion because, if you pushed the right button, his head would shoot off.  

I have been meaning to get this done for a while, and I actually think I can do better maybe if I plan ahead or don't use the small screen...(but I LIKE the small screen).  Anyhow, this is at least a first approximation...with the cool arm up close and center.   (I do feel like the sword could have been done much better--that is one area of my youth that was kind of girly: I didn't always draw swords.  I imagine Freud would say "of course not...")


Saw this a while back. I thought it was kinda sorta ...lovely.

 

I...did not spend that kind of time on this. Sorry.

I delayed on this from idea to output, but that is different.

 

Here is some text I had emailed myself about this, literally 9+ months ago when I was transitioning between computers.  Hehe, and still using stickies. 

 

(I think I had randomly ended up at a periodic table of awesome things:)  

 

Voltron  [vol-tron]

Voltron is a noble gas because it tends to be the king of giant killer robot molecules. It has been known to usurp particles of the _tronium atom to amplify its own awesomeness. Although there have been known to be versions consisting of subatomic vehicles, the isotope consisting of 5 subatomic lions obviously wins. Voltron has a tendency to be devastating to alien populations.

Substances with high concentrations of Voltron exhibit the following characteristics:
-A want to form torsos and heads
-Affinity for lava, earth, water, air and space
-Wanton disregard for alien life 
(originally said Wonton, but disregard is seldom really that delicious.)
 

Anyhoo, happy new year.  I've got to make with the going to town on focusing with respect to writing and that kind of important stuff, but have a nice queue ready to amuse you when I hit "really really really ridiculously busy."

 

  

(QUICK EDIT: I totally blanked on the fact that about a year ago today, the post was ANOTHER GIANT ROBOT! 

Sweet Chronicals of Ridiculousness!

--

Although, on further inspection, that's kind of just an odd product of probability based on my ...affinity for robots.  Other other robots:

here, here, here, here, here, here, and sort of here.

(When opened up next to each other it is surprisingly obvious what weeks I was phoning it in)
