How is a magician to exist without books? Let someone explain that to me. It is like asking a politician to achieve high office without the benefit of bribes or patronage.

So the only reasonable way I saw fit to calm my feelings about this movie was a simple solution. DRAW ALL THE DRAGONS. Guys go see HTTYD 2, hands down it was probably the best animated film I’ve seen in a while.

Posting this one alone because this is the last panel I’ll be doing in this glowy, surreal style. All the comic strips can be found here.

Next panels coming tomorrow or the day after. Also, considering Arda is so deeply tied to music, I have made myself a ‘chronological’ playlist - from now on, each post will have a musical recommendation.

Thank you.

A man who can ‘taste’ words has created a flavour map of the London Underground network after visiting every stop during a 49 year project.

James Wannerton has synaesthesia, a neurological condition that links senses which are normally experienced separately. The map is now being used by researchers to help understand the link between word formations and the tastes synaesthetes experience.

As an example, Baker Street in central London is one of the ‘tastiest stops,’ says Mr. Wannerton:

Baker Street is lovely. The best way to describe it is crusty and sweet, like jam roly-poly but slightly burnt. It has got loads of different tastes and textures. I love getting out there.

They have photographed the brain
and here is the picture, it is full of
branches as I always suspected,

each time you arrive the electricity
of seeing you is a huge
tree lumbering through my skull, the
roots waving.
