Thankful for the Middle Ages

Posted by & filed under BLATHER, Thanks, Theirs.

What a time to be alive! Something I’ve wondered about off and on for years is why nobody was making figs inspired by classic art. There are a lot — tons really — of minis out there of this or that TV or film character. And a fair few of daring heroes and cruel villains… Read more »

Thirlwall Castle

Posted by & filed under BLATHER, Travel.

This will probably be the last of my posts about the North of England. We went to Thirlwall Castle. It was a cool cloudy day. Seemed right. Here are the three plaques nearby and on site. And I shot a pano of each face. I hope they’re useful to some of you. As I said… Read more »

One morning in Haltwhistle I was poring over this map … … (which I pre-ordered before we left home, still have and still love) and came across this: So we worked it into our hike that day. Here’s the approach from the west: And here are two shots of it looking north: And here is… Read more »

Get it together. Oh, and …… Read more »

Giving Thanks

Posted by & filed under BLOG, Space-poc, Thanks, Theirs.

On this Sunday I thought I’d mention some figs I just came across this past week. I am thankful they exist, and you’ll be too. First, the explorer who made me realize the world needs more chicks with picks. I give you Miss Abigail Halsey: You can learn about her on the Mythos the Game… Read more »

Posted by & filed under BLOG, Film, Music.

I saw these two vids today, both for the first time, and both within a few hours of each other. Music-wise, what are the freaking odds? https://operatorsgonnaoperate.tumblr.com/post/151854109814/ltc-kilgore-ozsploitation-libfas-british
