Burns Linky

“O thou! whatever title suit thee,—
Auld Hornie, Satan, Nick, or Clootie!
Wha in yon cavern, grim an’ sootie,
Clos’d under hatches,
Spairges about the brunstane cootie
To scaud poor wretches!”

Robert Burns: Address to the Devil
Not the Bard’s best work – he calls himself out for ranting in the second-last stanza! – but reliably funny. And if you can read Burns without sounding it out in your head and grinning, you’re a more disciplined soul than me.

    re the 30 films from 1984. The Gremlins shot is from Gremlins 2, (1990).

    re the Star Wars models. Very cool. The Finemolds kits are excellent from what I’ve seen, and way ahead of the old MPC stuff. They are also way more expensive than the old MPC stuff.

    Here is a guy who did a similar kind of thing, but all in camera:
