Imitations of Mortality

Posted by Dirck on 27 October, 2017

It’s practically here!  The most funnest day of the year!

If, like me, you’re not interested in going out to a bar and watching people in Sexy (Insert Profession) costumes destructively testing their livers, may I suggest a movie?  Here’s a couple.  The first is short and… kinda splattery.

The other is just the thing to fill an evening.  I’ll be wearing a costume labelled “Sexy 1950s British Television Licence Payer (xxxl)” while I hunker down for this one:

If you have access to the all-colour Hammer version and somehow haven’t seen it, you really should set aside a couple of hours.

Today’s slightly thematic, in terms of name and vintage, pen: Mabie, Todd & Co Blackbird
Today’s potentially mood-setting ink: Herbin Lie de Thé

No film today.  Today’s fun assignment is reading…




Someone just showed me a excerpt from a monumentally creepy comic, and I want to share it with all of you.  You’ll have to skip over the the site where it’s been scanned in, and be careful to not look ahead at the thumbnails, but it’s really worth it.

If, that is, you haven’t been having enough nightmares lately.

Today’s pen: Parker 50

For more on this delightful creature, have a look at this clever cartoon.
