Welcome To The Curios

The Curios have been gathered from near and far. They may be common-as-muck or one-of-a-kind. They may be worth a pretty penny or a dime-a-dozen. They may be horrifying, captivating, loathsome, or scintillating.

Whatever the cause of their creation, hopefully they bring enjoyment to someone out there.

The Big Band - I Understand And I Wish To Continue - Grace Emily, 9 July 2011

Since September 1999, I've been a proud member of a band called The Big Band, with my friends Nigel, Spencer and Steev. This Saturday, we launch our newest album 'I Understand And I Wish To Continue' and we're playing a show to celebrate. This also marks our final live show in this line-up ever.






















Here is a little taster of the album:

Futurama Playing Cards; OR 'Grunka Lunka Dunkity Dasis'

As is quite obvious on this blog, I do love playing cards. So to celebrate the return of Futurama to television (now halfway through Season 6!), here is a deck I purchased some time ago.

Futurama is easily my favourite TV show and I was very happy to see that some thought had been put into the production of these cards and weren't just cheap headshots of the primary characters. They even arrived in a mock Slurm can, which even contains its own nutritional information table!
