    blog My search of a so called life has brought me to the capital of Finland where I m enjoying the prodigal snowdrifts and the generous library services In the future the Goldenbird gang must experience 1920 s Finland so much crazy stuff going on here After a strenuous day I wanted to document my adventures in a comic but the tablet still makes me frustrated so here s just one pic a self portrait somewhere in Sörnäinen Tags idle chatter 1 Comment Expensive Wardrobes by Ainur on 2010 01 07 at 23 46 Posted In blog Click to view larger The roaring Twenties didn t start very cheerfully in France where our heroes live when they re not vacationing on disputed territory at the Adriatic Sea Everything was scarce after the devastating war and prices were on the rise For Lou and Mayann this is not a problem the US dollar is strong and the bulk of their Paris audience consists of North and South American tourists war profiteers and goulash barons But for Falco Even before the war a decent cassock would cost 65 Fr and his meager scholarship has certainly not been updated to catch up with the rising costs of living No wonder he needs a part time job or two Those kid gloves and that silk cincture not exactly standard equipment for a simple deacon Observe too how expensive the ladies shoes are in comparison The worth of their undergarments must remain a mystery but I would guess that Mayann wears the skimpiest and most expensive ones Inspired by this front page of Le Petit Journal July 4th 1920 Tags fun facts illustrations 5 Comments Full Colour by Ainur on 2009 10 30 at 19 52 Posted In blog Name the characters whose eyes you

    logical to continue with the Apaches of Montmartre Looks like Mayann is ready to give them a taste of their own dance And that was how I came to know Julot and Gigolette And we would talk and drink a bock and smoke a cigarette And I would meditate upon the artistry of crime And he would tell of cracking cribs and cops and doing time Or else when he was flush of funds he d carelessly explain He d biffed some bloated bourgeois on the border of the Seine So gentle and polite he was just like a man of peace And not a desperado and the terror of the police Robert Service 1921 Lord knows what Falco thinks he can do with his umbrella Perhaps it s something he learned as a missionary in Japan or maybe he is familiar with the Cunningham system Studying popular imagery of the clerical class over the centuries one is struck by the ubiquitous umbrella if you pardon the pun Here some Jesuits chase away a secular scientist from a Bavarian university in the German satirical magazine Jugend 1913 Tags illustrations 1 Comment The Joys of Gardening by Ainur on 2009 10 16 at 00 02 Posted In blog Uninvited guests in the seminary Continuing the horror theme today it s Father Pietro s turn to face his worst nightmare a garden full of pests such as a wild sow and her farrow a raven sparrows a mole and three unruly seminarians Falco is playing Saint Francis to a young raven Nino is feeding his feathered friends instead of sowing and I don t want to know what Zeppe is going to do with his little spade I got the idea from studying Parisian argot the famous slang of the underworld which

    age I started collecting the advertisement pages for my own nefarious scrapbooking purposes and came upon this Black Prophet Nyarlathotep in a turban THE BLACK PROPHET Man of mystery A reliable guide learned in all secret sciences of Ancient Egyptian wisdom Does not ask for money nor fame etc Interestingly the ad claims that the prophet is a Hindoo seer born in an unnamed faraway land of mysteries mixing two Western stereotypes of contemporary India and ancient Egypt Boris Karloff as Ardeth Bey or Imhotep While Professor Zazra claims to work for good and noble purposes with no desire for personal gain the same cannot be said for the gentleman to the left another incarnation of the demonic wisdom personified in Nyarlathotep Written well after the discovery of Tutankhamon s tomb in 1922 the story of The Mummy 1932 watch it on YouTube picks up some much older themes of pseudo Egyptian magic in Western pop culture immortality reincarnation borrowed from Hinduism hypnotism mind control frequent in Western sci fi since Romanticism But Imhotep no matter how unnaturally aged is a mere human being His desires are just human desires as impossibly preserved and prolonged as his lifespan His burning gaze drawing his long lost lover to him inspires fear but also pity Prof Zazra on the other hand seems like a much more suspicious character I quote his own words This is the moment when I can enter your life Do not hesitate to capture this opportunity Whatever can be done to help you I will do it Let me do it now for I shall not walk down this path again Rub some soot or ink on both of your thumbs make therewith prints on white paper send it to me with information of your birthdate on the
