Alabaster by Rukangle

It’s a mysterious thing sometimes when all your doing is trying to keep a level head right before doing something that terrifies you.

Yet sometimes the very thing amplifies what you perceive as true and real but it can also play with your perception of what is not real. It can bring something to the forefront of our minds and makes us see beyond what is truly there. Sometimes it is our own self-preservation kicking into high gear, while others are a way to keep us within our own cell of mind, petrified of the unknown, our minds playing the game of what if’s and the should I or not.

Alabaster was taken in a moment like that. A moment where one of my fears becomes more real the nearest it gets we turned a corner and from the corner of my eye, I saw her, just standing there waiting to be noticed.

She was made to resemble beauty in its most enchanting, yet mysterious way. Made of what is perceived as perfection, with no flaws to be found, while still being able to hunt our dreams all the while making a statement.

After the picture was taken it dawned on me that maybe that is what she was waiting for, to be captured in such a way, to be seen, not just because she’s there but maybe for what she could be. Who she could have been at one point in time, and for who she was made to remind.

It brings out the question, who is she meant to be? why is she there in the first place? why does the mind believes her to be perfect in a world of imperfection?

Personally, I have seen things that can’t really be explained nor captured by pen or a simple photograph. Nothing compares to it. Yet, I see this picture and it’s a perfect compromise of beauty in such a small moment.

This has been Ruka of The Demented Ferrets, where stupidity is at its finest, and level grinds are par for the course. I’ll see you around! Until then please be sure to check out our other content below.

Betty White Passed Away At Age 99

Hey everyone, Kernook here… this image of my ferret just doesn’t reflect my mood recently. I am fairly saddened by entertainment news headlines. I was going to make this post a little earlier but I needed a bit of time to reflect and think.

As you know, in this household we watch sitcoms. One of the ones I grew up with in the early 90’s was Golden Girls. We used to watch the re-runs often, even after the series had long ended. We still do, this is why the news of Betty White’s passing brings such a dreary end to 2021. It’s as sad as it is poetic…

Betty White was known for her philanthropy as well as her robust acting career. Really though, she was a pioneer for the small screen in many different ways. Her acting career alone spanned seven decades… that just blows my mind… but that was Betty White for you. Honestly, I don’t recall a time when I didn’t see her on television, either through re-run programming or new sitcom line-ups.

Betty’s first credited appearance on television was in “A Time to Kill” a 1945 television short. However, you may remember her more aptly as Sue Ann Nivens from “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” or as Rose Nylund in “The Golden Girls” and the spin-off series “The Golden Palace“. These are the shows I enjoy most fondly.

If I tried to list all of the shows I’ve seen her in, it would never end. Heck, she even played herself in an episode of the Simpsons for a quick appearance. As a kid, that one always stood out to me.

Let’s keep it real, here… Betty White had a firm hand in the television industry any way you slice it. She was among the first women to showcase her skill both in front of the camera and behind it too. Her efforts coined her the honorary mayor of Hollywood in 1955. She’s also known as “the First Lady of television”.

This isn’t hyperbole, it’s true… this is how beloved Betty White is. She acted, produced, directed and even wrote for shows. She was doing most of that back in a time when women were just stepping into that kind of limelight.

There are people far more qualified than me to speak of her extensive career in the television industry. I’m just a simple, lowly fan… but as a fan I must say her legacy will live on in the countless classics found on television. I just wish she could have lived to see her 100th birthday.

Speaking on that, for her 100th birthday, a special movie event was planned. It’s still going to air. Apparently it’s called “Betty White: 100 Years Young — A Birthday Celebration” so here’s to hoping it celebrates everything her life was and all the wonderful things she gave to us as fans.

As for me, well… this post is all I can do. This woman was in every conceivable way a spectacular and influential person. Sadly, all I’ve got to go by are my own memories of sitting in front of the television with dinner in my lap and my family at my side. Those memories aren’t something I’ll soon forget. I hold onto them fondly, and now that the final Golden Girl, Betty White, has passed on it truly feels like the end of an era.

That’s the thing that sticks out to me the most, I think. It was nearly poetic how she passed away on New Years Eve, as though to pass the torch to the younger up-coming generations of sitcom stars. Ninety-nine years, and strangely it still seems all too soon.

Rest in peace, Betty… and it’s true, you can rest now. You’ve done so much, for so many. For every animal you rescued, thank you. For your massive contributions to “Guide Dogs for the Blind” and every other cause you worked to support over the years, thank you. For every half an hour on a weeknight that you lit up the television screen, and every memory you gave to families around the world, thank you…

Your fans will hold you in our hearts for years to come. So rest in peace.

Welcome to 2022, Happy New Year

Hey everyone, it’s Kern here. Welcome to a new year, hopefully this one goes better than last year (laughs nervously). There were a lot of ups and downs in 2021, and a lot of things that kept me super busy.

Who really knows what the future holds? Other than we’re going to try to start off the year strong, it’s anybody’s guess. We’ve got games to play planned for the stream, and Ruka has more “arts-and-farts” to show off. Expect another one of her photography posts later this week. That should be fun.

More anime and gaming reviews are incoming. I haven’t had the time to sit down and really work on them given the holiday season, and the fact that I’ve been fighting off a case of strep throat… yeah, that’s been fun… I am a homing device for that bug, I swear…

Also, expect a few more introspective type posts in the near future. I’m feeling a bit reminiscent recently. It happens in the early months of a new year. I find myself just sitting and reflecting a lot about my life and where I might like it to go… it’s a funny thing, really… always full of surprises.

One thing that I think I want to go back to doing is the occasional solo late-night streams. I don’t know, I’m still thinking about it, but I might do that again, if you have an opinion on that, let me know.

In any case, strap in tight, the year has just begun… I hope it’ll be a good one.
