I’d apologize for letting you down on content last week, but I’m not sure that any of you give a shit.

And that hurts.*

I’ve got two pages of The Wizard’s Tale ready for scanning tomorrow, and may be able to finish a third before heading to Oakland for nine days. You’ll be getting some content those days, but likely in the form of photos and stories about how awesome it is in California.

Don’t try to rob us, though; our home will be guarded by a ferocious old cat and a friend who is staying there and being afforded an exception to Stone Robot Enterprises‘ “NO GUNS” rule.

A few weeks ago Nadja figured out what her Halloween costume would be, and a few days ago I figured out mine.

This is important, because Halloween is my favorite holiday. It even beats out Van Riebeeck Day, which is a VERY close second*.

While I’ve had a few years where Halloween costuming was superceded by extenuating circumstances, generally, when I actually do Halloween, I don’t believe in pissing about.

Here’s one of my favorite homemade costumes:

I really hope you recognize it or can figure it out. No worries if you can’t, though; I’m here to help.

You can find more behind the jump at the bottom.

Did I mention I’m getting a new tattoo in California? I didn’t?

The hell I didn’t; go back two sentences.

Anyways, time to get back to the culling. These rabid [REDACTED] aren’t going to [REDACTED] themselves, after all.

Love,

MOAR COSTUMES!

The Brain Race

Over the last, ermm…lots of years, I’ve been doing a regular thing where I have a preposterous amount of fun taking my toys into the bookstacks and finding appropriate books for them.

The setups vary from comic book humor, to pop culture humor, to NOBODY WILL GET THAT JOKE, BENJAMIN.

I have some new ones planned out, so I thought I’d familiarize people with some of my older ones.

Also, if all goes well, you’ll have the first splash page of The Wizard’s Lesson tomorrow morning. Here are Part 1, Parts 2 & 3, Parts 4 & 5, and Part 6.

More Toys in the Bookstacks behind the cut.

Now go hug somebody.

Love,

benjamin
