In Honor of the Upcoming Watchmen Movie ...

You'll recall that the scent "Nostalgia" was one of Adrian Veidt's heavily advertised products.

Did you know that "Nostalgia" was a REAL fragrance? Here's a magazine ad from 1956.

Somewhere in my wanderings across the Earth, and my going to and fro upon it, I came upon a box that once held a canister of Nostalgia dusting powder (and doubtless a "powder puff" too).

Well, to satisfy all you fanatical types (almost as fanatical as me) ... here's YOUR OWN Nostalgia box to make and show off!
The real thing is just past 5 1/2 inches square. Cut out, fold, and glue, using the tabs shown by the grey lines.
Et voila, you too can have the right decorative item to sing Billie Holliday's "You're My Thrill" to that special someone.

It's Still a Neat Plate

After moving stuff into the "Fortress of Markitude" in fall 2004, all of a sudden one night a plate shelf dropped off the wall.



Among the casualties was this plate, which you see here in its reassembled state. Superglue has its uses!

A Page of Swan Pencils

This is a pencilled page from a 70s-era (I think) Wonder Woman, by the unparalleled Curt Swan.

I think the top center panel is pretty neat, catching Dianna/WW in midtransformation.
