    Whoops, forgot to ever post here, but as per my recent unsufferable Tweetingz, here is Guapo—both on the ride back from acquisition on Saturday and helping me Work From Home™ yesterday.

    I forgot the rent. My niece has a hedgehog. And we still have a Russian tortoise.

    Oh lawd the pretty cats. Pandemic time warp got me thinking about this place again. This cat thread reminds me of something Arkan posted years ago, a French graphic novel called...Ordinary Battles? Or at least the translation was something like that. He raved about it. The cover had a man resting on the floor with a tiny, tiny cat curled up in his stomach. It was achingly cute. I never was able to find a copy of it. Roommate's cat. For the tax.

    Meanwhile, the Tucson equivalent of the sleeper panel entails a sewer roach going over the top of my bed like a police helicopter at 2am bringing me wide awake and adrenalized (how the fuck does it stay airborne at that size??) and I had to leap up and do a hunter-killer mission. Hopefully the new cat will be able to help with these activities when he gets here. EDIT: (Yes, new cat incoming.)

    the original woodcut's "8 hours for rest" panel is so charming to me The mouse! The open window! (I guess it's hot out) The sleeper's exposed feet (ditto, being hot out?)

    No, it is just what it says in the tin. Pity I missed the opening of the new Archaological museum, and now I do not know when I will get back. Some more street art.

    I don't post in here enough. Been re-reading a lot stuff. Currently re-reading Dashiell Hammett's THE MALTESE FALCON: Every character in it is pretty much a jackass, but I still enjoy it and keep re-reading it. Guess that's why it's a classic. Before that I read VIRTUAL LIGHT, part of a lazy re-read cycle of all of Gibson's novels, in order. Before that I tried starting BLACKFISH CITY by Sam J. Miller, but couldn't get into it, even after a couple total start-overs. Moved it down the "to-read" pile a bit so I can come back to it later. Before that I re-read Warren Ellis' TRANSMETROPOLITAN. Which, when compared against our current reality, is far less cynical and fucked up, and in some ways more optimistic, than it used to be.

    He is one of the few posters that I believe everybody liked. A true gentleman. We exchanged some e-mails in 2008 about writing for Mythaxis, but I was not fully sure of my writing in English. And we met every time (except last time, of course) there was a board meet in London. I really looked forward to those brief talks, because he always had so many things going on. I dare to say I am a better person for having met him. He will be remembered fondly.

    Whoops, looks like I double posted. This interface is strange. Is there a way to delete posts?

    If not for some of the printed material, "vote out hate" etc, some people would see that, as an endorsement for Trump.

    One closer to home, from June last year. Gil Williamson, aka Gil here and in the original board. The new Mythaxis has an in Memoriam piece and I think it fits here. Rest in Peace
