PCP #6, I always wanted to shake a severed hand…


By Shawn Robare

Today’s PCP spotlight is on Micki who hails from the other side of the pond, all the way over in Spain!  Micki runs a site called El Escalon Imaginario, and though there’s a bit of a language barrier, just one look at his scans and photos and I know our Venn diagram of overlapping interests is practically a solid circle.  Hell, in the picture he sent he’s reading his postcard with a severed hand!  Now that’s style…

Also, if you look closely in the above picture you’ll see some pretty cool stuff.  In addition to the severed hand prop I spied a Super Mario Bros pin, Zuul, He-Man’s power sword, and a Breakfast Club poster…

I also really dig his graphic design style on the site, in particular his header.  If I’m getting the point correctly, with the picture of Humpty Dumpty on the wall and all the cool stuff underneath, then the implication is that after Humpty fell all sorts of awesome 80s and 90s era stuff fell out.  That is pretty darn cool.  I also love that he managed to Photoshop a portion of the TMNT postcard I send into an Ozzy Ozbourne record cover almost perfectly.

So if you get a second and want to get lost in the archives of an awesome Spanish blog, head on over to El Escalon Imaginario (oh, and Google translate is a great tool for getting over the language barrier…)

    whoo-hoo, my time finally came, I feel really honored! it seems chopping off my third arm was really worth the pain and the inconvenient blood stains on the ceiling ;) I wanted to clean up the mess I usually have around for the pic but thought “what the hell, I’m sure everybody who reads Branded will have the same mess in various degrees of desolation”. and you have a good eye! I had to look for the Super Mario Bros pin because I couldn’t actually find it in the pic. that He-Man sword is actually the same one I used to play with when I was 5 years old. I wonder how has it managed to survive all these past 243 years. I used to have another one, from Skeletor, which lit up when you pressed a switch, but it’s probably laying in the depths of hell by now. you liked the Ozzy photoshop? I’m so imbecile I was laughing my ass all the while when I was doing it :D and the Humpty Dumpty interpretation is spot on! it actually isn’t, I put it there because he’s always angry and I’m angry most of the time, but I think I’m sticking with your theory because it sounds way more captivating. thanks and keep up the awesome work!
