MARWENCOL - Guy loses his memory then builds 1/6th scale town in his backyard starring everyone he knows Wednesday, June 29, 2011 | comments


From the site:
After being beaten into a brain-damaging coma by five men outside a bar, Mark builds a 1/6th scale World War II-era town in his backyard. Mark populates the town he dubs "Marwencol" with dolls representing his friends and family and creates life-like photographs detailing the town's many relationships and dramas. Playing in the town and photographing the action helps Mark to recover his hand-eye coordination and deal with the psychic wounds of the attack. When Mark and his photographs are discovered, a prestigious New York gallery sets up an art show. Suddenly Mark's homemade therapy is deemed "art", forcing him to choose between the safety of his fantasy life in Marwencol and the real world that he's avoided since the attack.

Ahh! A knife-wielding hoodie man has strolled into my apartment and interrupted my book. Good thing I have by couch-side gun holster. Tuesday, June 21, 2011 | comments



Saw this in a magazine at Rite-Aid

Come on why would you pick cats Saturday, June 18, 2011 | comments

Hey let's take our resource collection game and randomly add cat people to it.


"In the City of Katzburg, merchants are all discussing the big news. The mayor, Henry-Cat, has signed a trade agreement with the newly-discovered continent of Felinia. In exchange for precious goods (rare books, fine wines, precision watches, luxury clothing, and refined glassware), the Kingdoms of Felinia have agreed to let them install trading posts."

Once you open the box there are like zero cats too which just makes it extra weird. If I'm going to play a game with leopards, I will play Zooloretto. And my leopards will not have human hands.

Wedding dress made from the parachute that saved the groom's life Thursday, June 9, 2011 | comments

So there was a B-29 pilot in WWII who had to bail out over Japan when the engine caught fire. When he proposed, he offered the parachute that saved his life as material for a wedding gown, and a seamstress was able to take it and turn it into this. It even still has parachute strings on the front so she can pull it up in the front. More info over on boingboing. No word from the CRAFT post if his crewmen survived to be white-suited groomsmen.
