In honor of old-school skiffy  
My tribute to a certain type of writer, one that is apparently knows what people want and don't want to read (e.g. "people don't want to read about menopausal women.")
Thanks to recent conversations with rose_lemberg .

Why does that woman look like she's a c-list actor out of her league in a b-movie whose been told by the despairing director to just pretend she's constipated? Props to the imaginative costumer, who clearly will be moving up to de-Mille-esque historical epics, but on a body that slack with an expression like that, even a hawt gown like that is not sexy. When I want to read boobies and rocketships, I want them to be sexy boobies and rocketships.

With kicky boots.

I'm afraid you'll have to find your own image then :) I can't find any where the (always blonde) D in D has any sort of sense in her expression.

I <3 this SO DAMN MUCH.

Brilliant. I swear, some of those old-school SF magazines looked like they were geared toward horny fourteen-year-old boys, based on the covers.
shweta_narayanshweta_narayan on July 18th, 2010 11:31 pm (UTC)
So I guess that was good marketing, since they were :D

Well, they probably want rocketships that have their OWN boobies, thus making women totally unnecessary?
shweta_narayanshweta_narayan on July 19th, 2010 12:00 am (UTC)
You know, there was one cover I found that was pretty much like that.
Maybe I shoulda used that one...

Lasers!! I want lasers with my boobies and rocket ships!!!

Lasers, blasters, and other phallic symbols are extra.
