I completely missed the fact that yesterday’s post was in fact the 200th of this blog. Perhaps my doodling wasn’t the best way to mark that particular occasion. Here are some pictures to rectify the situation.

Wish I'd been as cool as this kid when I was small. Picture taken from - "geek girls FTW" - check it out, I just discovered the site today.

Variation on an old classic.

Forget Adrianne Palicki, how about Sasha Grey as Wonder Woman?

And my personal favourite... Burger King in Yellow by Amazonne (brazenly stolen from DA). This is just plain awesome.


The Stars Are Right

Just makes me think of Play Your Cards Right... "Higher than a 7? Oh no, I'm sorry it's Yog-Sothoth." Gribble.

In case it wasn’t glaringly obvious by now, I really like gaming and I really like the Cthulhu mythos. When the two combine, it’s one of my favourite things. I’m lucky enough to have a girlfriend who understands my geeky ways, and indeed embraces them herself. She picked up this gem from our favourite store Inner Sanctum Collectibles (Plug!

To quote straight from the page of the RPG of the same name: “Amid the sagging gables of old New England, evil lurks . . . and squirms, and scuttles, and purrs. Grownups are fleeing in terror, hiding behind the Elder Sign. You’re 10 years old. You’re our last hope. Armed with a Shining Dodecahedron and the elder incantations to make it work, you capture the monsters and train them to use their power . . . But not for evil. For sport. You’ve thrilled to the popular TV show. Now, you can play the game!
