  1. This is so cool... It's kinda drivin' me nuts!
  2. Been away for a while. Still plan on ordering up an El Borak giclee as soon as finances allow. Just got a gig as a regular blogger at The Cimmerian (www.thecimmerian.com). I'll be on regularly on Fridays. My first post (March 5) was on pan-Turanian movements c. 1918, based on Son of the White Wolf. My focus will be on REH Westerns and Oriental adventure.

  8. Netflix may be your answer. Got it, watched it, enjoyed it, returned it. No fuss, no muss.
  9. That's me to a T. The early 20th century is my favorite historical epoch. For one thing, it shaped the world we live in today. So much for the "serious" reason. The truth is, it's just got the coolest iconography imaginable. You've got T.E. Lawrence and the Arab Revolt (obviously wonderfully visual); the Mexican Revolution with all those bandoliers, sombreros and machine guns; the African safari when it was tough and gritty; the Boer War and Breaker Morant; the freak show of the Russian Revolution and Civil War; the wierd dieselpunk vibe of the Great War. You've got the pinnacle of W
