You’ve got to roll with the punches just to get to what’s real

Into the classic rock room and magically we can recognise what they’re playing.

C’etait un Rendezvous

I was reminded of this film by a post on Jalopnik today. It’s been a while since I last watched it, and I’ve visited Paris in the mean time. So I kept spotting parts of the city I’ve walked through, in particular the Champs Elysee all the way from the Arc de Triomphe to the Louvre and the alleys around Montmartre. A little searching found this overlay of the route on a satellite photo.

Of course, the joy of watching something so audacious and exhilirating is tempered by the knowledge that there are too many people out there who think they can drive like this all the time and get away with it. Not everyone is Claude Lelouch and too many pedestrians die as a result.

Enjoy this on your computer, go play a racing game, then get on your bike and go around town at sensible speeds.

Shall We Take A Trip? is now available

Shall We Take A Trip? Front Cover 6"x9"

This is the revised cover for Shall We Take A Trip?, now available in 6 by 9 inch format at a sensible price. You can buy a printed version or a downloadable one from the Mary Tales shop at Lulu.

Be warned, this new comic, and everything else in that shop is sexually explicit. I call it erotica, you may think of it as porn. It’s one of those judgement calls where two people can look at the same thing and have completely different reactions. I may redesign the cover again for distribution through Amazon and others, but for now I’m going to go and work on a comic more suited to all ages.
