Posted: 20th January 2012 by affehaus in book, comics, cultural, geek stuff

From A Clash of Kings: “Behind the Lannisters came their great lords and captains. Their banners flared and flapped, a pagent of color: red ox and golden mountain, purple unicorn  and bantam rooster, brindled boar and badger, a silver ferret and a juggler in motley, stars and starbursts, peacock and panther, chevron and dagger, black […]

Psychological Torture for Fun & Profit!

Posted: 1st November 2011 by affehaus in book, cultural, things I need

The Extraordinary Catalog of Peculiar Inventions is a bit of a misleading title; the subject matter of this historical (hysterical?) reference concerns itself with the pranks that fraternal lodges would perpetrate upon prospective members (but the implements and paraphernalia used are, to be sure, peculiar). “At the beginning of the twentieth century, 40 percent of […]

Who doesn’t like free? The illustrious Margaret Pyle, of A Month of Sundries, has been kind enough to collaborate with me on this All Hallow’s Read (in point of fact, that’s where I found out about the idea), and has fashioned for me an eBook of the Jackanapes story. Click the link to see her […]

John Straun, over at Super Punch, invited a bunch of artists to create works based on Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. The art is cool, and fun to look at… and I feel like the kid in school that laughs at the joke, but doesn’t really get it. [I, uh… I haven’t read the book yet]

Sauron

the sub-shop where the ‘foot long’ really has a foot in it. Sauron by affehaus, third of three in the Middle Earth fast food series –and, yes… I’m aware (now, after having done a search) that there’s a “Zombie, eat flesh” design available– but I came up with this “eat flesh” independently, so there.
