  • Well I didn't say they'd be efficient :p
  • I'm fine (I think); Academia is a pretty secluded life so there has been only some change to my usual routine really. Two years in the Fens writing helped train me for this and my mental condition is optimal for isolation and productivity- I have a …
  • Ahh, hmm, perhaps not so much opposite in right or left, but in cosmopolitan and traditional terms
  • On a personal note with some irony; I never made anything steampunk before until last year. I'll put a picture of it up somewhere.
  • I finished my PhD and am looking for jobs in academia. Nothing much else to report. Edit: Seems like you've been through the wars a bit Wil, my condolences.

  • I’m a little late to the party. Coming from the other side of the political divide to you Nick, I nevertheless see the same, or similar, problem, broadly. Though, changing American constitutional arrangements seems unlikely owing to the difficulties…
  • I was not offering though, :P I'm tone deaf!

  • If you dont have an ear for it, it's going to be tough. If you have a friend who's a good player, you could maybe ask them to help you out :)

  • I enjoyed your review Hilde, and am now looking forward to the film even more. You mention it dwells a right ammount on carter's backstory. I understand he was a CSA officer in the American Civil War in the original stories, is this the case with t…
  • I've been quitely looking for'ard to this film.I've never read the original stories though. I'm quite fond, in my own way, of the Robert E. Howard short stories and I know he took influence from the writer of John Carter of Mars. One of his short st…
  • Sadly the Colonel seems to have become more ensconced with other things, as have Nick and I, I think that's fair to say. But there are some new members too!

  • (Quote) I'm no expert, but isn't hair on average uniformally plyable? provided you have length? Having said that, my hair just sticks up at stupid angles if left to its own devices, I'd like it lie straight, though so far it only has two settings; s…
  • If those kids move onto real smokes they'll grow up to be tycoons and leaders of the free world.
  • I saw the original Center of the Earth movie (the old one) and always thought it was fairly enjoyably old-fashioned. The newer one with Rick O Connel in it, I tolerated. This Mysterious Island outing I just looked up, couldnt find anything of the Na…
  • I'm loving the double breasted suit there sir, that, if I may say so, is first rate, Capital Number A.
  • Those dolls are freakish O.O (Image)
  • I would very much like to know more about your creations Lord Mordred, I do hope you post some pics up here. The Possibility of war from the Trent Affair is something I myself find very fascinating and have thought much about :D I certainly did not …
  • I'm going to watch it tonight, so no spoilers! I also see that my DVDs of the first series arrived today, so I can catch up :D, with only three episodes a season it's much easier to catch up with than Madmen.
