guest blogging and other notes

Personal news:
You may know that I make my more political posts at the Liberty and Power Blog (on LJ as power_liberty), which is part of George Mason University's History News Network. This week, however, I've been invited by Timonthy Sandefur of the Pacific Legal Foundation to be a guest blogger at Positive Liberty, so you can catch my posts there this week.

For Harry Potter fans:
J.K. Rowling has confirmed that she will write and publish a Harry Potter encyclopedia.

For Lovecraft fans:
Badali Jewelry Specialties now offers Cthulhu jewelry based on the writings of H.P. Lovecraft as well as jewelry inspired by The Lord of the Rings, The Wheel of Time, and other works.


PIGMY seraphs gone astray,
Velvet people from Vevay,
Belles from some lost summer day,
Bees’ exclusive coterie.
Paris could not lay the fold
Belted down with emerald;
Venice could not show a cheek
Of a tint so lustrous meek.
Never such an ambuscade
As of brier and leaf displayed
For my little damask maid.
I had rather wear her grace
Than an earl’s distinguished face;
I had rather dwell like her
Than be Duke of Exeter,
Royalty enough for me
To subdue the bumble-bee!
- Emily Dickinson

I have one of Badali's other Tolkien-inspired rings, and it's gorgeous. They do great work! And I think that would be an amazing surprise for your brother. Ai! Ai! :)
