Interlude – What measure a man?

Richard Forde was born March 16, 1828 in Ireland.  He doesn’t remember exactly where, he hasn’t been home for a long time and his memory isn’t what it once was.  After failing to gain entry to Trinity College of Medicine in 1846 he moved to London to attend law school, quitting sometime during his secondContinue reading “Interlude – What measure a man?”

The south shall blah blah blah you know whatever

You might be surprised to learn that Big Thicket Texas has three hotels.  That’s at least two more than I expected.  The Pinebox Motel wasn’t bad the first time around.  The second time when I checked in, the red-nosed motherfucker at the front desk was an asshole for no reason.

Gracia Asombrosa contra magia oscura part 4 – Did you say Techno Tit Land?

Once relieved of their burden of a vanfull of nude kidnappees, Grace and Sanaa head off into the dark scary California night, guided by Sanaa’s vague sense of whatever she’s sensing with witch stuff.  It’s only about ten miles to Millerton Lake but it takes them more than half an hour to get there because they don’tContinue reading “Gracia Asombrosa contra magia oscura part 4 – Did you say Techno Tit Land?”

Ken Burns History of American Necromancy

I have no idea if any of this is true but this is what my graveyard friend told me.   At the tail end of the civil war, a man called Jedidiah Crane saw the way things were heading for the Confederacy.  He decided that the only way for the south to win was to callContinue reading “Ken Burns History of American Necromancy”

Main event – Jolly Jane VS. Merlin

Some commenters have complained that I haven’t been talking about magic much lately.  That’s fair, no one is reading this because they need a behind the scenes look at wrestling.  There’s millions of sites for that.  There’s not much to say.  I’ve been trying to learn as much as I can on my own butContinue reading “Main event – Jolly Jane VS. Merlin”
