#73 Occupation, Empire & Rebellion: A History of Libya–Guest Blog by Lorenzo Davia

Oh my how we have grown.

For my whole life I have been a sci-fi fan, one of the first shows I remember was Doctor who(Of course at the time I did not know what it was called it was only a few years ago I found out what it was). There has only been a few movies and shows I disliked. I have been to conventions, events, book signings, etc. Looking at these events now Steampunk is everywhere. Every convention has Steampunk, look at photos of a convention and there is always people dressed in Steampunk garb. My brother…

Paintballing and games of the like.

With a little bruising
and a hoppity skip behind the trees,
I shall evade you,
and you shan't get me!

A short ditty on tight menswear.

A little ditty on leggings and how...interesting they are.

 

Oh! Leggings are tight, and look quite nice. If they were tighter, I'm sure it be nicer, to see a young bloke, a'flunkin' his junk; and I'm sure all the wenches would be quite charmed; Wherest their boyish companions are surely alarmed!

QUAINT #16 Vathek: An Arabian Tale by William Beckford

Vathek was created by William Beckford and appeared in Vathek: An Arabian Tale from an Unpublished Manuscript, with Notes Critical and Explanatory (1786). Beckford (1760-1844) was one of English literature's real oddities. He lived a life of scandal and extravagance, both financial and sexual, and even in the 21st century his name retains the… Continue

Digital

This morning begins with a screeching alarm

And the lost-wallet panic of a dream snatched away.

I seek pity from a digital clock

Without face, or arms, or a heartbeat of its own.

(There is only the droning hum of its light,

A garish green that flashes, “2:Late”)

 

I remember when clocks had second hands

Long, golden warnings of minutes to come

Abandoned for numbers that blink and change

Without gears, or chimes, or…
