These dolls will steal your money, your identity, and then your life. Well… that’s not exactly in the brochure; I’m reading between the lines. If having your own eerie doppelgänger has ever been one of your goals, CloneFactory is the manufacturer you’ve been looking for.  For a mere $1750 (or so…), they’ll take 3D composites […]

Technical Difficulties…

Posted: 25th July 2011 by 7ucyClark in miscellaneous

We’ve been having some issues here with the interwebs. When I’ve exhausted the entertainment value of beating my computer with a stick, I will solicit the help of my lovely tech support [hi, Lucy!], and get this thing back on rails. Posts shall follow. And poo. But mostly posts. Thank you for your patience.

so… a while ago, the Muppet movie PR machine released a teaser trailer riffing on the Green Lantern…           now they’re back at it (taking full advantage of Disney’s convenient ownership of Marvel this time), and have not lost a stride. In fact, this is an even better confluence of cultural […]

Pie-day

Posted: 22nd July 2011 by 7ucyClark in food stuffs, review

Todays Pie: bluesberry cheese The crust was exceptional; flaky and tender and all things a crust should be. The filling was farm raised blueberries, plump and moist and flavorful and exquisite.  The cream cheese base was mild and complemented the blueberries perfectly.  The Pie Master used a glaze of apple jelly to maintain the structural integrity of […]

We’re back. Huh. Hardly seems like anytime has passed. So– the wireless connection back at the Monkey Hut is being a tit; as such, posting may remain sporadic… though hopefully more sporadic than the past week (which was all too consistent in it’s [flatline] frequency).   But for now… here’s an image of Darth Vader […]

Just Stepped out…

will return in: several Days. Jaded Monkey is currently on the road, and as such, posting will be sporadic, at best… However, I hope to have glorious tales to tell after we get back; Lucy is taking me to Disney World. At least… that’s what she told me. I suppose we could be going to […]

Bread & Circuses: restaurant review

Posted: 12th July 2011 by 7ucyClark in food stuffs, review

“Bread and Circuses” (or bread and games) (from Latin: panem et circenses) is a metaphor for a superficial means of appeasement… The phrase also implies the erosion or ignorance of civic duty amongst the concerns of the common man (l’homme moyen sensuel).” By-god… this is a philosophy I can endorse. So– Bread and Circuses: a […]
