How To Shrink A Head

15 Dec

Utterly random brilliance over at Nerdcore – ever wanted to know how human heads are shrunk then read on >>


THERE’S A REASON hunters’ trophies tend to end at the neck. A head is more practical than a body. It’s easier to transport, it’s less time-consuming to prepare, and it confers the same bragging rights. Today, I count 29 heads—most taxidermied, some ­shrunken—on display in the Adventurers Club’s spacious old headquarters in downtown ­Chicago. Plus four attached to torsos: mine, David Brown’s, club honcho Howard Rosen’s, and that of Struve’s shrunken boy.

Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch (CAKE)

1 Mar

Before you get baking (click here for full instructions) let us say together a reading from the Book of Armaments:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, “Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy.” And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals … Now did the Lord say, “First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.”

OK it may seem a tad off topic for this blog but sod it as this is a film is one I have just finished making for AVG (producing & directing films is part of my proper job). I really like the way in which it explains how to stay protected online in actually a very engaging way (ahem) – the whole team rocked with special thanks / beer / etc going to Graham the awesome illustrator for turning this around in five days and Ryan for putting up with my bossy ways).
