"Eiskalt war Olimpias Hand, er fühlte sich durchbebt von grausigem Todesfrost, er starrte Olimpia ins Auge, das
strahlte ihm voll Liebe und Sehnsucht entgegen und in dem Augenblick war es auch, als fingen an in der kalten Hand Pulse zu schlagen und des Lebensblutes Ströme zu glühen."

(Excerpt from E. T. A. Hoffmann's "Der Sandmann")

Oh, and if anyone plans to get the February edition too: Could you please scan/copy Annie Tucker's article on Patricia Piccinini for me? Thankies.


I'm not gonna be around much for the next few days. I'm working on a presentation on "Johann H. Füssli and the Erotic Art of the Eighteenth Century". Meow.
