Hey, we’re Majestica and we’re visiting Etsy Labs for the week. They’ve invited us to come do what we do and see if we can’t inspire some new moves in the zone. Majestica is comprised of three different creative parts, sort of like voltron, but not animated, although we are sci-fi. Our “collective” sort of works like a good sandwich. Empire Empire is the bread, Ruffeo Hearts Lil' Snotty is the veggies, and Mixen Dixon is the Mayo…on both slices. The sandwich is toasted, as we like it. It tastes like threads, it smells like action, and it feels like rancid caviar in your mouth.

We have zone catchers. We don’t want you to see them right now. Have you ever seen the Tacoma Dome? It’s ok if you haven’t. Most people actually don’t even know what the Tacoma Dome is. But that’s just fine, because the following sentence shall explain it. The Tacoma Dome is the largest Wooden Dome Structure there is.
