    He ain’t Evil Murdoch, but will do in a pinch. (not the sole survivor of the Battle of Bighorn, I might point out—the sole American survivor.)(Although I wouldn’t be surprised if one of Custer’s dogs just ran away. I too would have taken that excuse to ditch Hard-Ass and head for the hills.)

help me father, for I am in love with an asexual dead man

T.E. Lawrence (or “Lawrence of Arabia,” 1888-1935) was an eccentric archaeologist and Oxford graduate active in the Middle East during the Great War as a military advisor to the Arab leadership. He fought alongside local troops and dreamed of an independent united Arabia, yet (to some extent) was plagued by his successes; he recognized he could never be more than a British hand moving about in a foreign land, extraordinary though he was.
He died at age 46 in a motorcycle accident on his Brough Superior, now housed in the Imperial War Museum in London.

also look at him.

Um. I don’t think TE Lawrence was actually asexual. But he certainly had that je ne sais quoi.

    "Savage Beauty", The Alexander McQueen retrospective, is opening at the V&A in March. I missed the New York showing. This is my chance for a do-over. Who is with me?

    Califa help me, I have discovered Zelfs. They are little troll like figures that come in various colors and attributes. This one is Vampula, the Vampire. There is also a witch, a ghost, a Chinese dragon, a mermaid, a werewolf, a lion, a moth, etc. etc. in the midst of life we are in death etc. They all have crazy troll doll hair & are totally triggering my LET’S COLLECT CRAZY PLASTIC ACTION FIGURE compulsion. He-Ma & Alien Queen, move over, there’s a new girl in town. And she’s pink & black and has a bat crown.

    “Califa: riotous carnival world of soldiers, drunks and magick (very) loosely based on California in the 1800s. Califa: marvel of ingenuity and purple prose… . Ribald, raucous, distressingly appealing, so steeped in its own world that readers may well be driven to find everything else Wilce has written—this won’t be for everyone, but oh, my precious pillows, what a joy for those who can handle it.”
    Kirkus Reviews

    I’ve always wanted to be distressingly appealing & now I get my chance!

Donkey Nanny, Lombardy, Italy. In the early spring shepherds drive huge flocks of livestock, here sheep, mules, donkeys, and goats from the Pre-Alpine hills to the plains of Lombardy, for grazing. The newborn lambs are carried in a custom made side saddle by the donkeys, and returned to their mothers at rest time.

I scream with joy and delight at this and Evil Murdoch just spits.

    I am so super sure absolutely positively going to this. Thrillpeddlers are fantastic and if it’s half as good as Pearls over Shanghai, it’s gonna be Gilgamesh (that’s my new slang for epic.)
