Doctor al-Zaius

“We finally really did it. You maniacs! You blew it up! Damn you. God damn you all to hell!” Wow, I really need to turn the irony down a notch. Today’s blog will be a brief one juxtaposing the above book-cover with an iconic film-still. The book is boldly entitled, “America in the Gulf” by … Continue reading

Pirate Parfum # 7 – Accidental Wildly Zealous
