“Take care! I don’t care. Don’t you worry about me! I am as happy now as I have ever been, and that is saying a great deal. But the time has come. I am being swept off my feet at last,” [Bilbo] added, and then in a low voice, as if to himself, he sang softly in the dark…

I got sick of using MS Paint to design all my graphic images, it looks really pixelated and it's difficult to work with, so I got Inkscape. This is the first drawing I've done with Inkscape, my favourite character from The Simpsons, but it was my first time using it so it's sort of jagged-looking... Read more of this blog post »

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


The first time I saw Terry Gilliam’s film adaption of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, was in the summer of ’98. I was 21, wild, reckless, and hornier than a dog with two dicks. There was this plump little lassie I had bee... Read more of this blog post »

The French philosopher Voltaire may have said it first (1764).

His celebrated Dictionary both defined and deified dogs: “It seems that nature has given the dog to man for his defense and for his pleasure. Of all the animals, it is the most faithful: it is the best friend man can have.”

Once lions chased dragons
And protected their claim
But the Queen, she had bargained
And time surely came
So the lions decided
To leave their domain

Like a plague of locusts
In numbers they came
Some tried to resist it
