I was recently browsing goodreads again in the hopes of finding a new literary masterpiece to add to my dreadfully long to read-list when I stumbled upon quotes of The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradburry. The story resembles a possible future of mankind. To summarize, it ‘chronicles the colonization of Mars by humans fleeing from a troubled and eventually atomically devastated Earth, and the conflict between aboriginal Martians and the new colonists.’ (quoted from Wikipedia). I find it quite comical that the book was written and published around the late 1940s to early 1950s. Mind you that is more than half a century ago and we, as self-proclaimed innovative and intelligent human beings, have merely touched the surface of the extraterrestrial. Books like these still amuse us and serve with the purpose of entertainment, though it is undeniable that we are getting closer to turning it into reality every single day.

By any means, the book has most definitely earned its spot on my to-read list as it has also inspired me for this very blog post.

To further embrace the extraterristrial vibes, I have decided to showcase a few of my finds at this years Geeks ‘n Nerds event. Starting with this radio by … and quirky lamp from HEXtraordinary, both truly being out of this world! (Badum tss…).

Adorability is a must for a martian girl like me, therefore I have added this galactical dress by NOMI, currently available at The Kawaii Project and some geeky-cute props by Les Sucreries de Fairy, which you can once again find at GNN. To finish the look, I am wearing a simply otherworldly hairstyle by the wonderful Mello.

“Science is no more than an investigation of a miracle we can never explain, and art is an interpretation of that miracle.”
– Ray Bradburry, The Martian Chronicles

  1. I remember reading that book when I was younger! Very exciting at the time when the sci-fi writers were focusing into the near future. Later on there was a film which I think you can still get on DVD and a TV mini series in the 1980s. It had some interesting things to say about the way we were taking society into a more self obsessed mode and it’s possible consequences that have since played out.
