Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab: Potions, Perfumes, and Esoteric Brews
There was a polite noise from behind her. She turned around. Standing on the wall next to her was a large black cat, identical to the large black cat she'd seen in the grounds at home. “Good afternoon,” said the cat. Its voice sounded like the voice at the back of Coraline's head, the voice she thought words in, but a man's voice, not a girl's. “Hello,” said Coraline.

Reading List: Favorite Titles in Young Adult Fiction Excerpts & Extras Reading List: Favorite Titles in Young Adult Fiction This is a list of some of my favorite titles in young adult fiction —there’s an emphasis on genre, because that’s what I read most, but some realistic titles as well. There are also many older books I love, and you can find a lot of them listed at Holly Black’s book recommendation page. bbum’s weblog-o-mat » Blog Archive » Cthulhu: Eater of Souls, Roaster of Dogs RoastMyWeenie has a limited number of Cthulhu(/Punisher) roaster’s available for purchase. A while ago, I wrote about some pretty funny / cool hot dog roasters sent to me from the folks at Work well enough, and pretty amusing, but not exactly practical for even a modest sized cook. I really wanted a roaster that could hold more than one dog. After thinking about it a bit, dawned on me that some creature with tentacles would be perfect and easy enough to cut on roastmyweenie’s water jet based cutter.

Molecule of the Month Welcome to the Molecule of the Month page! This is one of the longest running chemistry webpages on the internet (started in January 1996). Each month since then a new molecule has been added to the list on this page. The links will take you to a page at one of the Web sites at a University Chemistry Department or commercial site in the UK, the US, or anywhere in the world, where useful (and hopefully entertaining!), information can be found about a particularly interesting molecule. If you wish to contribute a Molecule of the Month page, just email me the URL and I'll add you to the list at the next opportunity.

Tower of London Remembers - About the installation About the installation Don't miss the major art installation Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red at the Tower of London, marking one hundred years since the first full day of Britain's involvement in the First World War. Created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins, with setting by stage designer Tom Piper, 888,246 ceramic poppies will progressively fill the Tower's famous moat over the summer. Each poppy represents a British military fatality during the war. The poppies will encircle the iconic landmark, creating not only a spectacular display visible from all around the Tower but also a location for personal reflection. The scale of the installation intends to reflect the magnitude of such an important centenary creating a powerful visual commemoration.

Do you 'ship absurd fictional couples? This music video is for you. Are you on the right website? Can I direct you to someplace else? (Said with the concern one might have for a lost elderly person or child one finds at the mall.) Huh? I love Sci-Fi and Fantasy. That's not the same as thinking "awww but X should hook up with Y!! princeofcairo: [Tour de Lovecraft] At the Mountains of Madness "What has haunted my dreams for nearly forty years is a strange sense of adventurous expectancy connected with landscape and architecture and sky-effects.... I wish I could get the idea on paper -- the sense of marvel and liberation hiding in obscure dimensions and problematically reachable at rare instances through vistas of ancient streets, across leagues of strange hill country, or up endless flights of marble steps culminating in tiers of balustraded terraces. Odd stuff -- and needing a greater poet then I for effective aesthetic utilization..."-- H.P.

Why Tom Hiddleston Should Be People's Sexiest Man Alive For 2012 When People revealed its Sexiest Man Alive for 2011, there was a public outcry when they chose Bradley Cooper over the beloved and memeworthy Ryan Gosling. (BuzzFeed even protested outside People‘s offices.) But with half a year til the next male celebrity is crowned, there could be an even greater upset: Tom Hiddleston‘s fans have fervently nominated the man we’ve come to know and love both in his role as Loki in The Avengers and just for being himself. What all of the Sexiest Men share is that they’re the archetypal Hollywood hunk: Chiseled features, sexy pout, and very, very mainstream.

Scholarly Lessons I’ve Learned From Trashy Romance Novels When I was 15, I discovered a stack of tattered tomes at a local flea market. They were the books you mostly see in supermarket check-out lines, or hidden behind tissues and Lubriderm in a great-aunt’s nightstand: three-inch thick paperbacks, their covers plastered with big-breasted women dressed like a half-naked Jane Austen. Some people might call them “racy Regency romance novels.” Others call them bodice-rippers, or trashy romances. I call them an education in disguise. Is Katy Perry Racist For Going As A Geisha To The 2013 AMAs? I truly can’t believe I’m writing this again so soon, but yet another celebrity is being accused of racism for doing something insensitive. Sigh. I guess this is just gonna be a regular thing for a while?
