Area 51 – Do It Yourself Road-Trip Tour

theshellmeister Blog

This one’s for Lisa M, Chris W and Jamie C, because you all specifically mentioned you were looking forward to this blog. I would be skeptical if I didn’t know you’re actually serious!

This past Christmas, I went to visit my Dad who lives in Northwest Las Vegas. Besides the obligatory gambling, we decided, at my suggestion, to go on a road-trip to Area 51. I wonder now in hindsight if…, no I’m pretty sure that…, actually, I’m fairly positive I was subliminally influenced ever since seeing the movie, Paul on a recent Virgin Atlantic flight to London. If so, then Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have a lot to answer for!

So first, let’s set the mood, shall we?

Paul (2011) – Official Trailer

So as one does, I Googled for tours to Area 51. Well, I quickly ditched any thoughts of a tour from Las Vegas because the going…

5 Things People Who Aren’t Prescribed Adderall Don’t Understand

It’s sad that this is the first article I have read that didn’t talk about adderall like it was simply a quick fix or a even a street drug that you should be buying off of your friends or worse fooling your doctor into beleiving you also ‘suffer from add/adhd, to be perscribed only to then treat like its candy.. Making the ones who really struggle with these conditions fall under suspicion just because of how everyone else is abusing it.
Anyway! This is very good look at the people who REALLY depend on this drug to complete important day to day tasks.

Thought Catalog

Adderall has gained a reputation for making you “limitless.” I’ve even heard it called legal meth, or legal cocaine. It seems that many teens and adults these days, especially those in college, would do just about anything to attain an Adderall prescription. To most of these people, who likely don’t even have ADD/ADHD, Adderall makes them better, at least for a short time. But to those of us who struggle with ADD/ADHD every day, Adderall helps us feel as close to normal as we will ever get. If you’re prescribed, it’s likely that you have had someone tell you that you’re lucky. But we’re not as lucky as they think.

Deck Review – The Wild Unknown Tarot

Rabbit Moon Tarot

Wheel of Fortune - Wild Unknown Wheel of Fortune – Wild Unknown Tarot

I first read about this deck in a blog post a couple of months ago (and have since seen it starring in a lot of edgy-teenager instagram galleries – but don’t let that deter you!) and was instantly intrigued by it’s creepy, eldritch artwork.  Since I live in England, however, and the deck is only published in America (so far as I can tell), I filed it away on my “Maybe one day…when the stars align…”  Tarot wishlist: slightly more accessible than the out-of-print Ukiyo-e deck, but still fairly unlikely to find its way into my hands.

Or so I thought…

The Narrative Illustrations of Chiara Bautista (aka Milk)

I’m so obsessed with this artist… ♡

The Dancing Rest

777-10. Chiara Bautista (MILK)

Chiara Bautista is an elusive and elliptical artist.
What may I say about her? She is Mexican and each of her artworks is a visual embodiment of complex and elaborate stories about love, life, music and beautiful monsters.

“As for my personal work, I create the illustrations in order to work as part of a small conversation and use them to express something I can’t find the right words for. After more than a decade of condensing big amounts of text into single images on a daily basis, I find using visual communication as normal as any other language. We can say things through music, words and actions. I’m one of those who like to say it using figures and colors.” Chiara Bautista
