I’m on my way (Much too late) to bed, having procrastinated too long on my weekend chores. Before I go, though, I wanted to point out a few fun things I’ve found around the internet over the last few days.
First, Flopping Bill Cantrell. I’ll tell you more about him later. I’m really happy to have found his picture, though.
Spacewesterns.com is running a story by H.P. Lovecraft set in the wild west. How cool (and timely) is that? Also, there’s a spacewesterns.com. Who knew?
I’ve been investigating a mystery thrift store mug I found. It’s got an electrified chicken. I’ll see if I can get a picture of it here and tell you what I’ve learned.
So, umm, I don’t want to lose the momentum I found last friday.
Instead of actually working at writing coherent thoughts, how about a list of some of my favorite famous people and things? Lists are always good, right?
Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s The Little Prince; Peter Pan; George MacDonald; Alexander McCall Smith; Diana Wynne Jones; Neil Gaiman; Terry Pratchett; N.T. Wright; Jacques Ellul; Terry Jones’ War on the War on Terror; Monty Python’s Flying Circus; Terry Gilliam’s films; The Life of Brian; Oscar Wilde; e.e. cummings; Tom Waits; Dave McKean; Jonni Greth; G. K. Chesterton; Madeleine L’Engle; San Francisco, city of my birth; Wendell Berry, small farmer and small writer; the Tales books by David Mains (Tales of the Kingdom and Tales of the Resistance have been very important to me since I was very young. I hope I find a copy of Tales of the Restoration); Marva J. Dawn; Walter Brueggeman; Stephen Fry; Hugh Laurie; Rowan Atkinson; Doctor Who; David Tennant as Doctor Who; Ross Noble; Craig Ferguson; Q.I.; Alan Davies.
I could keep this up for ages!
