Season’s greetings Wurlzetodlians – by which I of course mean happy winter. It’s been a while since I posted but I’m happy to say that I can bring you items of news, religion, science, mystery, art and hilarity
I visited Copenhagen (or Kobenhavn if you prefer, yeah with the o I can’t do)
last month in October, something I’ve been wanting to do for a while and made more likely by the event of my brother moving there. Whilst there I met up with Wurzelforum denizen adamPadam, very pleasant chap who bought me a beer or two and recommended The Danish Jewish Museum a great space where I felt the most wasted I’ve ever felt without the use of some stimulant or other… the angles really had an interesting effect on me. There are perhaps some better photos here. I’ve got some photos of my visit up on Flickr but sadly none of the museum (camera’s banned and lack of a flash even if I’d managed to sneak it in).
Suffer not a witch to live – in scenes reminiscent of medieval witchhunts, Catholic pilgrims in Glastonbury have attacked pagans and threatened to “cleanse” them from the town. More
In our continual quest to resolve the worlds of art and science, we’d like to present some clear cases of convergence…
Now that Manmelter 3600ZX – Sub-Atomic Disintegrator Pistol is a thing of beauty, there are more things of beauty here. On sale next year apparently, I might just start saving my pennies now.

Art meets behavioural science… …meets water
Laura Splan – exploring the perception of beauty and horror, comfort and discomfort using anatomical and medical imagery.
The Voynich manuscript is a mysterious illustrated book with incomprehensible contents… sounds like lots of books but this one is perhaps more interesting…
I wish my
wife town was this dirty. UK residents (and beyond for all I know) might be familiar with the hilarious series of “jokes” scrawled on dirty cars, windows and whatever other objects accumulate layers of filth (the Wurzelforums?)… well I suppose this is a little similar only good. Art created by “selectively scraping off layers of black soot deposited on those walls in the short life of this orifice of modernity.”
Ragnarok is nigh! Well… quite close and more of a puppet show than the real thing… January should see me and others make arses of ourselves playing with shadow puppets at Fimbulvetr. Unless of course we
bottle it have technical difficulties. If you are anywhere around the Edinburgh area on the 26th, drop by and say hello.
