    For reasons I can't ascertain this Martin Hewitt mystery is given over to one of his compatriots, Johnathan Pryde.

Circus Boy~ American TV 1956 to 1958

Circus Boy~ American TV 1956 to 1958
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Circus_Boy
Young kid in a western circuit circus. Thus, old west big top.
Corky (played by Monkee-to-be Mickey Dolenz nee Braddock) is orphaned when his folks, "the Flying Falcons", die in a trapeze mishap.
Perhaps if they had been killed by a baddie Corky could've been adopted by a wild west Batman.

Time Being Relative and All That....

Yes, yes, I know! It's been just 2 years since joining the Empire, and I have been grossly negligent in posts and blogs, et al for the last, oh, year and a half? No surprise there, as life has been full of major distractions. Have been curating a museum for the last year, and medical problems with Father likewise filled up my days. Things have momentarily calmed, though as with anything, the possibility of future disruption-- and eruptions!-- is always a consideration.

In the time…

I'm going slightly mad hatter...

I've been making Victorian riding hats for weeks. Sewing these 12 beauties from flat patterns has been no easy task. The needles must be sharp, and the fingers, brave and strong. One slip could cause more pain than catching a falling porcupine, in a salt… Continue

Gun Modification Stations in 2012

For those have you that have not yet heard, we will be prepping toy guns for modification for both GalaxyFest next February and AnomalyCon next March.

 

What we do is take a toy gun and prime it for painting, give it a color coat (usually metallic) and a protective clear coat.  Then, at the event, provide access to model paint in assorted colors, small decorative…

A curious day

My Dear Friends and Fellow Citizens of the Empire,

I have to relate a unique and somewhat unsettling result with my parambulation in public this weekend. I was sporting about a local artsy venue in American Steampunk style when a precious little girl simply froze in place in front of me.

I love children and their open sense of innocence and wonder. I smiled at her and she remained staring at me.

Realizing that in this world that my appearance might be a bit of a shock to…

The Earth is Flat

The Greeks knew that the world was round. Eratosthenes calculated it's circumference with a reasonable accuracy given that he did so with little more than sticks, strings and some simple math. Even during the religiously dominated Dark Ages, Greek knowledge of sphericity never faded, and all major medieval scholars accepted the earth's roundness as an established fact of cosmology.



In spite of Washington Irving's biography of Christopher Columbus, the people of Columbus's time…
