Carmen et Terror

justcuriousabout asked: Hi, I am very impressed with your blog, and would like your input on something. I am running a Vampire game set in Hungary 1 year before the Mongolian invasion. I was wondering what other ethnicities would be present in the area?

you’re doing a game about VAMPIRES

But you need to fact check “other ethnicities”?

… ethnicities….other than vampire?

Monsters & Dames: Slow Day in the Labyrinth on Flickr.
My piece for the “Monsters and Dames” book, a themed collected of art by exhibitors at the 2012 Emerald City Comicon. Many contributions involve super-sexy ladies being menaced, so I tried for a slightly sweeter and more oblique take.
EDIT:  Some folks have asked me if there’s a print available of this image. Yup! It’s right here in the ole’ store.

The tone of this changes immensely depending on whether that’s Ariadne or Pasiphae.

a discussion on sexual orientation

  • me: *explaining various sexual orientations to a classmate*
  • classmate: wait, what's polyamory?
  • me: well, it's when someone has more than one intimate relationship at a time with the knowledge and consent of everyone involved.
  • professor: *overhears from front of class*
  • professor: that is d i s g u s t i n g
  • me: *defensively* um, actually, no it's--
  • professor: how DARE they put a greek prefix on a latin root like that?! What right do they have to decimate my beautiful antiquated languages?!?! GREEK AND LATIN DO NOT FRATERNIZE THIS IS LIKE THAT STUPID ROMANTIC SUBPLOT BETWEEN THAT DWARF AND THAT ELF IN THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!
  • me: ....
  • me: ....
  • me: ....

I don’t know what I dread more: Mara Jade being retconned out of existence in SW VII or Mara Jade having lived but being dead in SW VII.

SW without Mara Jade is really weird, because for me she was always there. When my friends made me watch the Trilogy…

Luke was always the least interesting character in his own story.  Mara won’t be in it, at least not in any major way, because it’s set too far out to introduce her.  If they threw her in, she’d have to be “Luke’s wife for the last umpteen years that none of you know or care about”, at which point they’re better off leaving her out altogether.

Alright, I’ll put an ad in the papers, “Wanted: kind home for enormous savage rodent! Answers to the name of Sybil.”

This awesome LEGO model of the Fawlty Towers hotel foyer was created by 21-year-old Cornell University student and LEGO builder Nathan Feist. It’s full of delightful details from the hysterical 1970s British sitcom about a dysfunctional little hotel in the seaside town of Torquay (on the ‘English Riviera’), written by and starring the inimitable John Cleese and his then-wife Connie Booth. Note the fire extinguisher, fire alarm, and the infamous moose head that hangs above the lobby desk (for now), complete with its broken antler.

Feist showed off his creation at BrickFair Virginia, but he says the model is actually still a work in progress:

'I plan to modify this and post another set of photos once I get some parts I don't yet own and will maybe even build the upstairs or exterior.'

Whatever you do, don’t go in there asking for a Waldorf salad.
