Ho hum. Internet problems here mean posting will be sporadic for the next few days. My apologies. In the meantime the archive feature has been activated to bring up posts from the past. Stay tuned.

Update: Still contending with a week of All The Technical Problems, not only internet-related but things like my main work computer throwing kernel panics like they’re going out of fashion. Consequently I’ve been rather preoccupied while I attempt to get back to the usual operational status and do important things like attend to deadlines. It’ll still be a few more days before there’s further activity here, I’m afraid. Stay tuned.

Update 2: UK residents will tell you that the iniquities of British Telecom are like Walt Whitman’s contradictions: vast and multitudinous. All being well, however, normal service should be resumed here on the 20th.

  1. You probably already know this John but HR Giger, Patrick Woodroffe, and Nash the Slash died recently. Very sad week. Hope you come back to us soon. Cheers.

  2. Thanks, I caught the news of all these demises. Giger was the most important for me, of course, and I sent my condolences to the people I know at the Giger Museum. I had Nash the Slash’s Children of the Night album which I always enjoyed; I think the first mention I saw of him was in Heavy Metal magazine which was also one of the first places Giger’s paintings appeared in the Anglophone world prior to Alien. Also still have Patrick Woodroffe’s Mythopoeikon book. I admired his technique, and liked some of his book covers, but much of his art was too whimsical for my tastes. I did like the paintings he did for the Pentateuch album, however, and now regret selling my copy of that in the 1980s.
