The Librarian

More graphics pimping

Just finished reading Nightmares and Fairy Tales, volume one and volume two. Annabelle is a lovely little doll, with her purple hair and big eyes and tattered cobweb dress. It's just too bad about what happens to or around everybody who owns her ...

Tales from today and versions of fairy tales that make Tanith Lee's seem like Disney. And then, of course, there's Annabelle herself, wondering whether she's the cause or merely a witness.

Definitely another must-read. Don't forget ... sometimes the monsters AREN'T the things lurking in the closet ...


More for your reading list ... volumes one and two of Lucifer's Garden of Verses ("The Devil on Fever Street" and "Darlin' Niki"), by Lance Tooks. Tales with unexpected twists, told with wonderful art and song; each volume is a unique story and style, so it's not necessary to read them in order ... just read whatever you can get your hands on. There are two more volumes (so far) in the series ... CPL doesn't have them yet, but I'm certainly planning on reading them when they're acquired.

If you can only read one volume, "The Devil on Fever Street" is the definite must-read of the first two ... what happens if the fallen angel Lucifer wants to repent, but God won't permit it? (P.S. watch for vol. 1 Beelzebub's and Belial's guest appearance as music tv hosts in vol. 2)

Yes, yet another new booklist over at catdesk. Short this time ... you won't need the condensed rations and Sherpas. :p But good things come in the smallest packages: the gay history has been greatly praised by zappo in her own journal, the first title in the list so perfectly complimented sealwhiskers' web comic recommendation from earlier today that I grinned like the Cheshire cat when I realized it (the photographer and author are Swedish), one wonders if the Lee Bros. biscuits can even come close to those prepared by our very own BiscuitMistress, anotheranon, and every girl and woman should read Jude Milner's graphic autobiography (and have a poster of the cover on her wall).

Hoicked from anotheranon

Interesting result, just because I know that while Albertans and Ontarians think they sound pretty much alike, a Maritimer can immediately pick me out as an Ontarian transplant to Alberta based on my accent. :p

What American accent do you have?

Western. Like Midland, Western is another accent that people consider neutral. So, you might not actually be from the Western half of the country, but you definitely sound like it.

Take this quiz now - it's easy!
We're going to start with "cot" and "caught." When you say those words do they sound the same or different?
