An old spell, cast long before the Grounding.
(“I have read about this one,” said the Keeper, “it appears only after rainfall and before sunshine near running water. Look, but do not touch and do not linger.”)

I would like to tell you a little story. This is a tale of Lune’s fiddle and how it came to be.
His friend, the Serpent White, lay dying. Of a broken heart, no less, which was how Lune found her.
“Come now you silly thing! However did this come about?”
The serpent did not reply.
“Is there anything I can do for you?” Lune asked again, gentler this time.
“Out in the northern edge of your forest, where it is darkest and densest.. the oldest tree has fallen. I know you used to say you wouldn’t touch it for a new fiddle while the wood yet lives, also for want of a skin good enough to match it. I feel now the time has come that you can have both.”
The fox, alarmed, vehemently refused.
“It would make me happiest if you do this. Lune’Tao, I don’t want to be reborn anymore. You’ve kept me immortalised here in your forest long enough, you selfish creature.”
And this is how the white serpent got her wish to stay by his side at last.
Wizard Of Oz,
a 100 year winter, a Giant Frozen Tin Man, a lion made of Fire, a Scarecrow that transforms into a Crow, and Dorothy with Her Trusty ToTo sword.
This is my vision of a classic tale.
A hypothetical story about a girl who rides a fixed-gear bike, who gets mixed up with a giant robot. I was thinking about what it would be like to see something monumental from a far distance in the dark, the line between a hallucination and objects obscured by atmospheric perspective. I am a big fan of The Iron Giant and FLCL, and “bike porn”—sexy pictures of sweet custom bikes, sexy girl optional.
Striking Self Portraits by Kyle Thompson
Thompson takes self-portraits up a notch with his surreal and stunningly eerie style. Unafraid to take risks, he creates photos that are shocking. Almost more shocking is that he’s a pizza delivery man who took up photography only about a year ago. Look through his 365 project (he’s currently at day 155) and you’ll notice how his style and technique has quickly started to evolve.
