What a Bloody Mess: Demon's Den, A Crying Jupiter, and a Lady with a Hat

What a bloody mess
More ridiculous art courtesy of yours truly. Before you go 'ooh' and 'ahh', or swoon in a fit of visually induced ecstasy, be warned that it only looks nice because I got lucky. That's just how it is with my art- either it's a pathetic mess, or it's an "ohmigawdareyoualatterdaymichelangelothatssoawesomeman" moment, with 'man' pronounced Jamaican style 'mahn'.

Celcom and Prada, the Perfect Match

LG Prada
This is as last minute as it gets. Here's my video entry for the "Celcom and Prada, The Perfect Match" contest by Nuffnang, the closing date for which is tomorrow (scratch that, 10 hours to go, to be precise). Disclaimer: I've never touched an LG phone in my life. I don't own any items from Prada either. But what the heck does all that matter- I managed to film my entry in time (with the help of my sister as photographer), and I want to win this contest (who joins just for fun, eh). In any case, I'm off to bed. The video's after the page break- watch and be awed while I snooze away.

Placeholder: Capitalism Lives On; My Bank Account Cries

Faux Ice Cream Cake
Time for a placeholder post while I continue to wrap up (postpone working on, in other words) another long Turkish Travelogue. What you'll get is a hodgepodge of things that I've ate (obvious from the photo above), things I've bought (not so obvious), and what I think about them.

Book Review: The Dune Encyclopedia

A month or so ago I came stumbled upon a veritable gem of a book in a second hand bookstore- 'The Dune Encyclopedia'. For anyone else it would be nothing more than a stuffy pseudo-scholarly book (encyclopedia, after all) with a weird cover, but for Dune lovers like me, it's nothing short of a triviagasm.
