So there was the Game of Thrones season 4 premiere.

Then this happened.

And then, the fan art.

This doesn't really need a caption, does it?

My day?  Made.


ETA: Fan art, the gift that keeps on giving.  Now with MORE CHICKEN.

ETA the Second:

While twitter brought us the above image, it didn’t bring an attribution… immediately.  Thanks to the link to this post getting around the original artist got in touch with me and I can credit the original image to ROCOM.  You can find ROCOM at that link, which goes to tumblr, or on twitter @rocom

This is what the original image looks like.

Before The Hound was shopped onto the KFC bucket.

If I hear from the creator of the image at the top I’ll be glad to ETA again.

It’s Called Networking

And if you know anyone, anywhere or have any friends or family you can do it too!

Networking is how you can find a job, find an apartment without a pesky broker, or find a home for that cat who needs one.  It is not about trading favors, it’s about knowing people.  If you know people and have an email address, you too can network!

Dear Internet: You are weird

One of the most fascinating things about having a blog is seeing what it is that brings people here.  The other day a *really* strange search term popped up in our list of “why people come to”

It was just too weird.  So, in honor of the truly strange corners of the internet (and The Bloggess who had this idea first), I’ve gone back through the list and picked out some of the strangest, funniest, most terrifying and sometimes offensive search terms that brought you people to this blog.  Granted, since I’m writing about them it’ll probably bring more of you here, but that’s OK.  What is that they say about any publicity being good publicity?  Yeah, that.  I think.

The best thing to come out of TX since Wendy Davis

I have never heard of this particular species of turtle before, but there’s something strangely appropriate about a turtle from the Lone Star State being called a Texas cooter.

Sometimes the posts just write themselves

This is our 500th post here at  Geoff and I were wondering what to write.  Perhaps we should observe the occasion with something special?

Then we came across these links and realized that we had to share them with the world.  Sometimes, you just have to go with what finds you.  Thank you, internet.

spam, spam, spam…

There are times when spam amuses me.  The usual, “Hott!!! girl wants to hook up with YOU!” stuff gets deleted immediately along with anything that refers to penis enlargements, FREE prescriptions, various male enhancements, etc, etc.  That’s the usual stuff we get via email at our various accounts.

Spam here at the blog, however, is a bit of a different beast.

26 posters

Don’t worry, they’re not all in this post.

Today I got my daily email from  One of the featured shops was for artist John Keddie, a San Francisco based artist who is a multimedia computer savvy type guy.  He also very clearly has an appreciation for pop culture and, well, twisted humor.  That’s why we’ve put up 7 of his posters.  The rest are probably too, um, gritty for our parents.  As they read this blog regularly and may pass out from too much grit, we’ve erred on the side of caution with our choices.

This week, in the randomness that is the internet

Every so often I come across a random photo or drawing on the internet that amuses or horrifies me.  Or if I’m lucky it makes me wonder what on earth is going on.  This is a round up of three that I’ve come across this week.  Enjoy?
