Saw this link on Propnomicon and thought it might be helpful as an in story/rp resource or at the least a fun curiousity for naval buffs.
I truly do not believe there is anything needed to be said.
The good folks over at UCSB decided to digitize and make available for all and sundry 10,000 wax cylinder recordings from when our \’personas\’ would have first heard or at least heard of said recordings. Please enjoy!
I found this transcription of The Nautical Telegraph Code Book on the propnomicon site and thought it might be useful for some roleplay or even long-distance relationships. Can\’t be too careful these days with messaging.
Finally, I have found a copy of Viy, also known as Forbidden Empire, to watch and possibly enjoy. Steampunkery and magick not unlike that seen in The Golden Compass, though this be set on \’Earth\’ in the victorian age. I\’ll report back later tonight on whether or not it was worth the effort. TTFN.
Mediocre at best, perhaps if I were under the influence it would have been better. I’m not saying it wasn’t interesting at least enough for me to watch all the way through, just that I was hoping for a more action filled adventure. I can definitely rank nearabouts the Golden Compass or even the Brothers Grimm. Better than Season of the Witch, the…[Read more]
Forlath my friend, happy days are here again. Fan-dam-tabulous news!
Still round the corner
there may wait
a new road or
a secret gate;
and though I oft
have passed them by,
a day will come
at last when I
shall take the hidden
paths that run
west of the Moon,
east of the Sun.
– J.R.R. Tolkien
Perusing the yurtoobs, I happened upon this lovely little thing . . .
AND NOW, A MESSAGE FROM THE QUEEN
To the citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
In light of your failure in recent years to nominate competent candidates for President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately. (You…[Read more]
May those who love us love us.
And those that don\’t love us,
May God turn their hearts.
And if He doesn\’t turn their hearts,
May he turn their ankles,
So we\’ll know them by their limping.
– Unknown Irishman
A Godzilla haiku
life is but a bridge
you cross it at your peril

Boosting the signal . . .
You have got to be joking – the acting in the first Iron Sky movie was so bad, not even the special effects budget could save it. Now they’re making a sequel? Here, watch the 1st minute of this clip, pretty much the only thing worth seeing in the entire dismal film . . .
Yeah, I wonder about all those ‘craters’. Underground mining operations or simply giant moon worms?
Hey, doesn’t the US own the moon, after all, who got there first…..or did we!?!
AND (no, I’m not done yet) the UK did a kickstarter!
maybe I need to do one to get back home 😉
(k, now I’m done.)
So I wasn’t quite finished.
On ‘Mining the Moon for Helium’-
Was the lunar program abandoned because- a. we never got there in the first place, but made our point? b. we were warned to leave it be? c. something was discovered that was better off left unknown at the time? What, what, what?
And how can they sell land there!?! Can everybody that…[Read more]
What, nothing about right and left handed haggis, leg lengths and breeding problems with LH & RH Haggis
And if you haven’t time to sit and eat, you can have a Haggis Pop!
wow. I don’t have any idea what any of this means…and yet, I laughed.
Im just odd that way I suppose
Ronin, are you saying you’re not familiar with the Scottish Poet, Robert Burns?? Wrote Auld Lang Syne? A Burn’s Supper is an occasion to celebrate and commemorate a man who liked his drink, liked his women, and knew a thing or two about versifying. What better reason could there possibly be to get together and raise a glass.
Here a brief…[Read more]
sorry, but cannot honestly say I have. recall, that I am in fact in Southern California, the modern tech home of fruits and nuts, silicone valley of the implants and heathens all.
the only culture here is in the yogurt….
I have however been most curious as to the haggis. the only one Ive seen here was frozen and sold at a rather strange…[Read more]
I did not know that traditionally made haggis was available in the US because of lung being one of it’s ingredients. I had pseudo-haggis at a renfaire, tasted of liver and cloves.
(haha, the only culture there is in yogurt, good one 🙂 mmm, yogurt….)
lungs schmungs. Id totally try one. a little BBQ sauce, a baked spud with the works? yeah, Im in.
I had heard of a rotary phone app for personal mobile telephones and for all it was quite spiffy sounding, it still was not enough to entice me over into the new age. Confounded nuisance is all they are. If I wanted a multitude of leases, I’d have remained married. Quite…
Having just this very evening while perusing the interwebs, I did come…[Read more]
I wonder if that’s just a photo of a rotary dial??
Now that I look more closely, it appears to be a sticker. Still inspires me to perhaps finally enter the new millenium and sign my soul over for a device that will hardly ever be turned on and will be outdated by the time I get it out of the box. Then perhaps add an actual rotary dial just for kicks and maybe get the rotary dial app…maybe.
I found links on yurtoob for the show that first educated my wee American mind concerning the wonderful world of beer. Enjoy!
Happy, happy…had a surprise or two for Christmas, all of them good ones and along the same vein, I found this lovely little gem today. It feels as though I should know these characters…
