hradzka: Cassidy, from Garth Ennis's PREACHER. (Default)
I recently got a Twitter account (as hradzka, natch). My phone can't make Tweets, which is a shame because I went to a Virginia gun show today and discovered that I kept thinking of potential Tweets while walking around. It would be silly to dump them on Twitter all at once, so you get them here )

Without question, the most awesome item there: an old Schutzen rifle, *gloriously* engraved and carved, with amazing detail on the gun itself and on the stock. The right side of the gun featured an engraving of a woman aiming the rifle; the right side of the stock showed the same woman holding a cup of some sort. The guys who had it just got it, but they'll be putting pics up on their website. They thought the picture on the stock showed the woman holding a stein, but it didn't have a handle, so it would've been a goblet with a top. I think there's a good chance it was a shooting trophy, making it a woman's rifle. Be insanely cool if the woman depicted was the woman who'd originally commissioned the firearm...

I'm going down to the gun show
for a musket and blunderbuss, too,
or an M1 Garand would be oh so grand,
or an AR-15 that's brand new,
I'm going down to the gun show,
I'm going -- why aren't you?

YOU NEED A BOOK

A POEM EVERY DAY

The collected poems from my descent into madness year spent writing daily poems are now available from Lulu as the cheapest 330-page book they would let me make ($16.20). If that's too pricey, you can also get it from Lulu as a free download, or just click on the "a poem every day" tag to read them here. But if you did buy one, that'd be awesome.
