Here's an image from the Baje Nalozki Sagen Brauchtum (Book of Woodcut Artwork), courtesy of the image gallery at the Texas Wendish Museum. (The gallery is an autoplaying slide show, so I regret I cannot link directly to the source image.)
I'm not exactly sure what's going on here, but I'm sure there's a story behind it.
Caption ideas (even NSFW-ish ones, if they're funny) are welcome in the comments.
A new fair has sprung up in this great land of ours, and against all odds it shows every outward sign of being exceptionally good. Sherwood Forest Faire is running Saturday and Sunday through April 04 of this year. I attended the opening weekend (27, 28 Feb 2010), had a great time, and plan to go back at least one more weekend if schedule and weather permit went back on 20, 21 Mar 2010, and had an even better time despite cold weather.
More gushing praise, links and even a few pictures after the jump.
Things change, and change is bad.
One bad change you may have noticed is that a handful of the posts here are now password-protected. This isn't something I'm especially happy about, since these posts are about things I think are cool, and which I want to share with everyone. But someone smart (and with a significant stake in the matter) made the case that these posts also leaked information which could put me and others at risk.
I've tried to adopt the most measured response that still fixes the problem: hide only the posts I have to, and put those behind a wall rather than destroy them entirely. While I hope this is the last time I'll have to do this retroactively, we don't always get what we want or expect.
If you see a password-protected article, and have reason to believe I know and trust you, then you can always send email and ask for the password. Unless that trust is already established, though, you're wasting your time -- if it were something I could show to just anybody, I'd already be doing that.
