18_04_2016Oh speaking of reading I highly recommend The Bees by Laline Paull, I just finished it and it is amazing! I was going to link to amazon but the description both tells you way too much and makes it sound daft, so I won’t.


16_04_2016Yes Wudagast I am just messing with you now.

Also this is totally a scene from, you know, that terribly high-brow Estonian silent film your cultured friend forced you to watch – the one about the conscientious paedophile shell collector and his ambiguous relationship with his sports teacher sister, and their quest to find the perfect scone, also that scene with the albino chickens, and it is four hours long and you were annoyed to tears within the first two minutes and you are NEVER GOING ANYWHERE with your friend again.

Ice Man

5.04So there’s this actual real life dude who calls himself the ice man and who is planning to conquer the world via cold showers and hyperventilation, it’s awesome! He doesn’t actually have snowminions yet, or at least none that he’s admitting to, but he has the making of a decent supervillain; he seems pretty charismatic and apparently he can teach you voluntary control of your immune system (from a limited study but hey, impressive) plus generally making you strong and scary. He clearly has devotees already so animated snow monsters are really just a matter of time.

(If you’re interested, google Wim Hof -fabulous name, isn’t it? And contrary to my rather slapdash tribute, he does have fingers. And toes.)
