"I don't expect you will really understand the beauty of the softly simmering cauldron with it's shimmering fumes, the delicate power of liquids that creep through human veins, bewitching the mind, ensnaring the senses ... I can teach you how to bottle fame, brew glory, even stopper death -- if you aren't as big a bunch of dunderheads as I usually have to teach".
"Fools who wear their hearts proudly on their sleeves, who cannot control their emotions, who wallow in sad memories and allow themselves to be provoked this easily […] stand no chance against his powers!"
What a beauty! I was able to get Rick Riordan’s “Percy Jackson’s Greek Gods” the other day. I’ve read nearly half of it since then and I love it so much. It has made me laugh plenty of times, too. Oh, and the artwork is so lovely (I can’t stop looking at it)!
I will try to post more photos of my favorite books in the coming days. For more of my favorite reads, you can add me on Goodreads.com/thehouseofhades. I hope you have a fantastic day!
1952 LES PAUL! You can’t get any better than this…with the possible exception of a 1954 Stratocaster…or a 1950 Broadcaster…or a 1959 Flying V…or a 1959 ES-335 (with the too-big pickguard…that’s how you know it’s an early one!)…or (for me anyway…) a white 1961 Les Paul (SG) Custom (without the sideways vibrato, if possible). Some people might also suggest a 1959 ‘burst Les Paul. I don’t have any fundamental argument with your choice - there’s no question about the importance of this particular instrument….it’s just too heavy (in weight I mean) for me! ;)
Maybe not as cool as a ‘52 Les Paul…but still very pretty. And a LOT less expensive.
1995 Rickenbacker 360V64.
An ancient Epiphone arch top. I don’t know my pre-Gibson Epis very well…so not sure what it is. Trivia question: do you know why the company is called Epiphone?
Looks like a house. A house where they boil things. Apparently.
