Live in Oslo

Do pop by if you have the chance. Lord Bassington-Bassington's good friend Frater Zog is organizing. We are, however, unsure about whether there will be a Germanic Bear Search this time around.

Micro Presses, Micro Books

A micro press should issue micro books. And now Valentine & Valentine have produced a most appropriate title.

This tiny tome, a short discussion of the aliases used by TE Lawrence (you know, the one of Arabia) is so small and well made (sown spine and everything) that it is hard to wrap one's head around it.

So to show its size, here is the book next to some everyday objects.

What? You mean straw boaters, bow ties and statues of Great Cthulhu aren't everyday objects for you? Then surely it's time to reexamine your life, Sir!

Happy Flag Day, Swedes!

It's the national day of the Swedes today. Or, as it's known here at Bassington Manor, Official Solblot Appreciation Day.

Solblot live in Oslo in 2007, at Lord Bassington-Bassington and Lady Mju's stag and hen party. Thanks to the Somersetians for the picture.

It's time to make oneself a drink and listen to some obscure recordings. And shout out: Congratulations, dear Swedes!
