Ein gutes neues Jahr – if indeed this is your New Year, not really sure why I’m bringing you this message of festive cheer – I celebrated my New Year sometime ago and I’m not feeling very cheery but it might be because Miss Tod was kind enough to give you a present to celebrate the birth of your lord
Jesus Cthulhu Christ.
The devout may wish to read further scriptures, The Misadventures of Hello Cthulhu
Having broken my self imposed posting embargo here are a few pearls I’ve had rolling around in the hermitage for some time… usual apologies if they are hideously out of date and you’ve seen them all before.
Photo Decadent I’m sure that you all know of this already but if you don’t it’s worth a look from time to time (though perhaps not all of the time) – here is a nice little cut to illustrate the point… the Little Red Riding Hood is particularly nice.
From time to time I wish I was learning Russian rather than German, well I suppose if I’m really honest I wish I had completed my learning of German and moved on to Russian. If either of these two facts were true I might have the faintest idea of what is going on here… as it is I can just look at the pictures and guess.
A while back I was in Prague, lovely city lovely architecture – particularly liked their metro and it’s Soviet styling. This was no real surprise though as I have a soft spot for Soviet design. So I was pretty pleased to find a link to a site detailing Soviet architecture in Slovakia on WeMakeMoneyNotArt. I hope their plans to expand the site included a trip to their neighbours.
Some of you may be formulating elaborate plans to make and break a New Year’s resolution. May I humbly suggest that we all give a little this year and try our up most to spot a new crypto-species for Cryptomundo. Personally I plan an expedition into the darkest recesses of the hermitage to see just what is making those odd sounds.
Finally… some of the more inquisitive forum denizens may have noticed Flinders request for some discussion on the subject of food… I had thought initially he’d wanted to swap couscous recipes but on reflection I think he may have been wanting to discuss some of the more exotic foods of the world… perhaps along the lines of this? Is that close to the mark Flinders? Trust me it gets more exotic as you go down the page but the prison wine may save you from a grizzly fate.
Bon Appétit, and I’d like to echo the fuck easter thing
