Game of Pumpkins

Game of Pumpkins

My husband and I have become HUGE Game of Thrones fans. Our friend Jennifer introduced us to the books several years ago and we listened to all the audiobooks (great for long road trips).

I also love the Inn at the Crossroads site where they create recipes based on the books. At this year’s April 1st HBO premiere, we had a pot-luck dinner where everyone referenced recipes from their cookbook or medieval ones. It was good fun.

This is an odd idea that struck me. When I described it to Troy, he said the idea was not funny. Maybe I described it badly (I hope).

I have always been a big fan of Peanuts comics, although despite a big licensing push lately with the property, I have wondered how kids these days feel about the strip. They recently re-branded the local amusement park with Peanuts characters from the cool Nickelodeon ones. It seemed like an odd choice… Do kids really like or get Sopwith Camel jokes? I see they are working on a movie for 2015. I am curious how it will be received after reboots of comics like Tin-Tin. (A comic I also love…)

Anyway, it works great with Game of Thrones… Right? Right?!

Happy Halloween!

Halloween in the Year of the Dragon…

As I mentioned in the last post, I am posting some homages to Halloween in the Year of the Dragon culminating in my one-pager, Game of Pumpkins.

Then it is back to Fairy Godfather. The next pages are very exciting in that one.

Year of the Dragon, Neil Gaiman and Flamingos

I recently saw there is a tumblr that consists of Neil Gaiman and Flamingos. It seemed to work in  my brain with Pop Smoothie and the Year of the Dragon. I admit I get a bit silly when I am up in the wee hours (couldn’t sleep).

I also have a couple Year of the Dragon Halloween posts coming up and a special one pager called Game of Pumpkins.
