Today is the commemoration of the 3rd anniversary of Djulfa's destruction. The historical Armenian cemetery of Djulfa had countless "khatchkars" (cross stones, some of which I actually saw in the Byzantium exhibition of the Royal Academy in London last week) which date back to various periods, most of them centuries old. On December 15, 2005, the remaining ones (which had escaped damage between 1998-2002) were destroyed by a group of Azerbaijani servicemen. Photos show that the cleaned up area was turned into military shooting range.

The website has more written information, photos, as well as the documentary itself. This not only a crime against Armenian culture, but against our collective cultural heritage as humankind. Don't let it go unnoticed.

Revenge of the living cats

Last night, returning from a concert, we might or might have not run over a cat's paw (as per Schrodinger's Paradox) and what is the first thing I Stumble today?

Head Injury Theater: Part two of Celebrating Stupid Monsters of D&D

The first edition had such classics
as the Owlbear and the Giant Space Hamster; Head Injury Theater is back with part 2 of the series, with monsters no less interesting -and stupid.

I will quote two examples and rest my case thereat.

Death Linen. The image says it all, really:

And possibly the most retardedly (I know it's not a word. It is now) unimaginative monster in the D&D history: the Zorbo. While most D&D monsters suffer from hormone-induced, highly fertile imaginative powers, this one was just thrown in at the last minute it seems:

high geekery levels reached, aborting in 3, 2, 1.

Chehuaha @ Obey the Purebreed

Moving along the same vein, from Obey the Purebreed website, I give you Chehuahua.

daha gecen gun gidilmis "korda'nin objektifinden che: bir portrenin devrimle baslayip ikonla biten oykusu" (santralistanbul) sergisi baglaminda dusununce ne kadar manidar, ne kadar ironik. ironik kelimesini dogru kullandigim icin kendimin asilmasina.

Countdown to Extinction

It appears that I have to be in Oxford for the start of an intensive Latin course for September 22nd. That changes my leaving for England date to a few weeks earlier than I had planned. So, it's going to be excruciating *INTENSIVE* (read: 6 to 8 hours a day) Latin with no space between that and the start of the Michaelmas term.

Today being July 16th, I have about two months left to live like a normal human being. Note to peers and friends: please be considerate and make my day until then (activities may include seaside breakfasts, movies, animal shelter visits, etc.)

Still, not complaining. Ben bir sakinleseyim.

Tarih 19 Haziran, 2008. Yunanistan'dan Turkiye'ye tasinmaya calisiyor, buyuk oranda fail oluyor, ve sanirim cinnet getiriyorum. Bu blogu da benden ve zop'tan baska kimse okumadigi icin niye yazdigimi kendi kendime sordum. Cevap: esyam olmadan sinirdisi edilmek istemedigim icin adam oldurme, konsolosluk calisani bogazlama yerine buldugum alternatif bu. Outlet of rage, falan filan.
