Succulent Sizzle

Tried making teriyaki beef.  Well, it tasted okay.  But the beef strips came out all tough and chewy. 
I'm a bad stir fry.  : (

John Willie, a Founder

There have been April showers, and the wild jasmine growing on my back fence has burst out in a profusion of sweetly scented flowers.  I'd say that makes it time for another review!

Evil Dolly's Featured Fetish Artist of the Day:  John Willie.
It could be said that John Willie, or John Coutts, (1902 - 1962) was a worldly man.  Born in Singapore, raised in England, lived in Australia, New York, and Hollywood.  A self-taught artist, he did fetish photography and illustrations from the 30s up through the 50s.  I think it is fair to say that he is another artist who had a big influence on fetish art later in the 20th century.  He was a contemporary of Irving Klaw... though I don't believe in reality he ever met Bettie Page as depicted in the movie The Notorious Bettie Page.  I'd say the bulk of his known work came from his comic series Sweet Gwendoline and his own periodical publication, Bizarre magazine.

Here's my chunky Taschen collection of Bizarre.  I found it in a kinky shop (I think it was Stormy Leathers) while I was in San Francisco for the Folsom Street Fair... must have been around 1996.  I snatched it right up.  The magazine does feature a lot of Willie's artwork and bondage, though the bulk of it is fashion fetish photography (heels and boots, corsets, gloves, stockings, that kind of thing), some articles and stories, and lots of kinky reader mail.  All in all, it's pretty innocent.

Among his favorite subject matter were corsets, heels, restrictive clothing and costumes, and tear-filled eyes.  I like the detail on those gloves up there, with the outlines of fingernails.  For the most part, he seemed to put more focus on a more realistic and simplistic sort of bondage, as opposed to some of the more contortionistically extreme bondage machinations of Stanton and his peers (some of whom I've yet to feature).  Simple ankle hobbles, basic wrist ties, a gag... you're all set!  And it never hurts to have an exposed back or bottom to cane and whip.

One thing I appreciate about the style of his painted works are their softness.  The black and white ink washes have a very watercolory air about them.  And that up there on the right... bound to a tree and stinging red welts on a nice summer day... refreshing!  Of course there were a variety of gags, bridles, and branks.

And, naturally, there had to be ponygirls!

John Willie's work isn't too hard to find, if you're interested.  Both Sweet Gwendoline and the Bizarre compilation can be found without too much difficulty, both used and reprinted.

Stifled Creativity!

You know what would be awesome-keen?  Making a game.  More specifically, a game based off my li'l Slave Role Generator.  Maybe like an isometric Sims sort of game, where you have this mansion that you build up over time, populated with these little slaves and the guests who've come to use them... income based on the happiness of the guests mainly due to the quality and variety of slaves. 

You could build and maybe decorate gardens and rooms with specific purposes, like different dungeons, bedrooms, dining room and kitchen, pony slave stable.  And of course all the different slaves would need their own dorms.  Maybe use seamstress slaves to unlock more outfits?  You'd have to pay to acquire more slaves to raise the satisfaction level of the guests, and as the game progressed the randomly generated slave roles would become more diverse and you'd have to figure how to best utilize them.

And each little slave would have stats like Morale and Obedience that would affect their job performance and escape attempts, based on their training and how they were treated... whether they did their jobs well or wandered off a lot or broke down crying in the middle of the hallways.  You could have slave trainers and staff on the payroll to keep everything running smoothly, but those would later be replaced with Drone slaves who'd work for free, but wouldn't contribute much to satisfaction since they'd be brainwashed to the point of total obedience but be too robotlike to benefit morale.

Not sure there'd be a winning condition of the game, more like a sim game where the fun would be watching all the little characters go about their days, going to and fro doing tasks, interacting with each other as the mansion grew and grew and became more populated.  Zoom in and see someone beating up a punching bag slave, or the little gym slaves tied to treadmills, or a mummy slave getting wrapped up, or pony slaves pulling a cart through the adjacent forest trail, or sex slaves flirting and being fucked.  Loads of funny little animations to watch.  Generally a low-stress sorta game, like watching an aquarium.

Unfortunately... I cannot make computer programs.  Scripting language just doesn't stick in my head at all.  I tried to learn it once years ago - the Second Life language - didn't work.  Can't do Java at all.  And something like I described would require tons of scripting.  Scripting aside, I'm not much good at 3D modeling, or animating, or making textures.  And I'm not rich enough to pay someone else to do it all.  Heh.  I get a lot of ideas, but haven't the skill to bring most of it to fruition.

The Colors!

Happy fertile bunny time day!  Did you remember to color and hide your eggs for the Wild Bunnyman?  Yeees, even perverse Evil Dollies might color eggs well into adulthood.  It's been known to happen.

Today is the day when the irises are a-bloom.  That's a fine thing.  I think these iris plants are as just about as old as I am. 

I hope people have been enjoying my little artist reviews.  The tricky part is trying to pick just a handful of pictures.  Takes some time.  And I don't want to post too many, after all.  But I've enjoyed being able to share some of my interests like this.
