I had the immense pleasure to spend some time with the talented and inspiring Rik Garrett (... and beat the shit out of him at table football).

Anyhow... I'm only here to say that I'm not back yet. I need to revise 5286 pages (sic!) for a media studies exam and I should really start preparing my 120-minute Goya & Callot presentation beginning of July. Please understand that I won't be back before the 2nd week of July. There are loads of great blogs in the right sidebar that will surely entertain you in the meantime. Gracias.

Oh, and for all those readers who keep asking me about more nudie pics tasteful photographs for Flickr: I'm sorry to say that I simply don't have the time to take pictures at the moment. Besides, I'm getting old and senile, wrinkly and grey-haired. I'm too old for this self-portrait thing. At least for the time being. Thanks for understanding this, you perverts.

Jack the Cat

On June 4 a black bear wandered into a West Milford, New Jersey, back yard, was confronted by a 15-pound (7-kilogram) tabby cat … and fled up a neighbor's tree. Hissing at the base of the tree, Jack the clawless cat kept the bear at bay for about 15 minutes, then ran him up another tree after an attempted escape.

Finally, Jack's owner, Donna Dickey, called the cat inside, and the timorous trespasser disappeared back into the woods.

P.S.: I received one of K. Louise Judd's prints the other day ('They Tried to Cure Her Ills With Lady’s Slippers'), and what can I say... it's breathtakingly beautiful and it almost looks like a painted original. I think all WurzelReaders™ need at least one of her artworks on their walls.

    Cryptozoology art

    Cryptozoology is the study of animals that are rumored or suspected to exist, but for which conclusive proof is missing, from the Loch Ness Monster, to Bigfoot, and the Abominable Snowman, though it has also revealed animals that are now...
