This is just a quick note to confirm that
I am held hostage in the library basement and that I can hardly type in those rusty handcuffs I’m alive & well.
However, I won’t be able to update Thee Temple ov Psychick Blah on a more regular basis before mid-July.
Oh, and did I mention that I suffer from gum abcesses, eczemae and viral infections of my lymphatic system? I guess it’s syphilis. Or maybe my badly embalmed organs are starting to rot on the inside. Also, I seem to have developed cronic insomnia. o_O

Hotel… an interactive tale
Samstag ist kunstgalerietag!
*My German lessons started again and I’m feeling quite buoyant about it *
I was at the museum again the other day, the Museum of Scotland and the Royal Museum, where they had a temporary exhibition on optical illusions. This reminded me how much I love optical illusions and all their head warping goodness.
A nice example from MIT.
I have a vintage postcard at home involving the devil and several young women (perhaps not as much fun as you’d imagine there) in a somewhat similar vein to these. I’ll scan it and post it later.
