James Maxwell's Enchantress is an engaging, dense fantasy that drew me right in.
Join a former flying tiger, his awesome dog and a Grumman G-21 Goose as he explores the south Pacific, fights Nazis, and has a broken relationship with a pretty singer/spy. This should have been my life, not a one season tv show you've never heard of!
I wanted to make my own dancing cane. All you need is a drill, some magicians thread, and a far lighter cane than mine.
Making a dancing cane is pretty simple. As the video above says, just drill a tiny hole about 1/2" above the balance point of your cane and tie on a piece of high strength, nearly invisible magician's thread. Make a loop on the other end of the thread for your thumb, and let the fun begin.
I tried this on a regular walking cane. It is far too heavy to manipulate without lots of practice, and will bruise or break things when mistakes are made. I suggest making your own from doweling, as suggested in the video.
Making the loop slightly over-sized makes changing hands easier.
The wax that comes with this magician's thread is useful for making other, very light objects dance. Like a dollar bill!
"We are poor little lambs, who have lost our way. Baa. Baa. Baa." I loved this show so much as a kid, the opening credits give me chills.
Preppers vs zombies is a genre sure to keep me laughing. Blue Plague: The Fall, by Thomas A. Watson, is ridiculous and brutal.
When I need to tighten my glasses, or put batteries in a children's toy, I can never find a tiny screwdriver. This $2 set is a steal!
With No.1 and 0 phillips heads, 3mm, 2.4mm, 1.8mm and 1.4mm flat head screwdrivers this kit has me covered. I actually ordered two, one I keep on my desk and the other in my tool bag.
If I make sure to put them back in the plastic case, I may not lose them.
I've always enjoyed Gary Wolf's Who Censored Roger Rabbit? far more than the movie adaption. Dark and gritty, this noir fantasy is a thriller!
As usual, the book is much better than the movie. Who Censored Roger Rabbit? is a surreal film noir story, that fans of Chandler and Hammet will appreciate, albeit with toons as major characters. Not written for a Disney audience, and certainly clumsy in spots, (like plot resolution,) this story is far, far more entertaining. You'll see a lot of parallels to the film, but the more adult approach and theme fit the genre so much better. I can no longer view ToonTown in the same light.
Eddie, Roger, Jessica and all your favorite Who Framed Roger Rabbit? characters are here, but darker and more interesting. If you enjoyed the movie, Who Censored Roger Rabbit? is a must read.
Quite literally splattered with everything from seal poop to motor oil, my eyeglasses are frequently filthy. These packets help.
