The Dark Judges - Dave Kendall 

Talented realistic master of horror, Dave Kendall, updates the most malignant quartet of fiends, from a world where life itself is a crime.. the Dark Judges, in his own creepy, inimitable fashion!

  • Judge Death - the most evil creature to ever exist!
  • Judge Fear - the ethereal embodiment of terror.
  • Judge Fire - a being of living fire.
  • Judge Mortis - wearing a rotting animal carcass, his very touch brings decay.

Don't forget Jean Batten! She was a New Zealand aviator who did the first solo flight from England to New Zealand, plus lots of other cool feats. She also dated men for their money so she could buy planes, and died of a dog bite in Majorca.

Rad! I could totally see her being a bit of a rascal. Adding her to the master RP list!

(this is in reference to the earlier thread about rad female pilots spurred on by the inimitable Kate Beaton)

It was ten years ago today that Hunter S. Thompson shot himself. He was one of the most brilliant voices and fantastic characters in 20th century literature, and a genuinely talented journalist whose unconventional approach opened politics to a generation of youth. His writing style was so unique that he became a one man genre - someone completely inimitable, yet so captivating that it’s impossible to read him or listen to him speak and not accidentally steal some element of Gonzo. He was also a hell of a photographer, too (with his favourite subject being himself), and - according to this photo - the uncredited inventor of the selfie stick.

“One day, as a small boy, I was copying the portrait of Napoleon. His left eye was giving me trouble. Already I had erased the drawing of it several times. My father lovingly corrected my work. I threw paper and pencil across the room, saying, «Now it’s your drawing, not mine». Two cannot make a single drawing. I am sure the most skillful imitation can be detected by the originator. The sheer delight of drawing has its way in the drawing. That also is a quality the imitator can’t imitate. The personal abstraction, the rapport between subject and thought also are inimitable”.

Edward Gorey's illustrations for War of the Worlds


Zack sez, “Brain Pickings has a selection of illustrations for Edward Gorey’s little-seen take on H.G. Wells’ classic tale of Martian invasion. It’s every bit as creepy as you’d think.”

 At the end of his time at Doubleday, Gorey illustrated a special edition of H. G. Wells’s The War of the Worlds for the celebrated Looking Glass Library series, published in 1960 under the New York Review of Books Classics imprint. One of Gorey’s inimitable pen-and-ink drawings adorns the beginning of each chapter.

Streetlight Manifesto have announced another Micro tour over on their website. http://streetlightmanifesto.com/

Really bummed about the final major tour when they got stopped at the border for 6 hours and couldn’t make it. Still hoping they’ll come back through Manitoba again one day.
