Two-faced (link roundup)

A mask hides a sinister truth in this image by Rudy-Jan Faber, who has prints on sale here.

And a few more links:

1. Homemade plush Hobbes. Via.

2. "[A] 19-year-old Vietnamese girl who is living in the Czech Republic won a prestigious literary prize for her novel, White Horse, Gold Dragon." Alas, the book was real, but the girl was made up. Via.

3. Lego Ebon Hawk from KOTOR.

*Previously: Calvin and Hobbes t-shirt.

*Buy Japanese masks at eBay.


  1. I lived in the Czech Republic for 2 years and heard a lot about the Vietnamese from my students, most of it was not nice. Most of the Czechs I spoke with had little to no respect for the Vietnanese or the Roma (Gypsies) there, oftentimes showing outright hatred for them.

    I hope this book changes some of their minds.

  2. Man, you sure have gotten around the world.

  3. You just seem to post about where I have been! Much like the Japanese baseball posters. I lived in Chiba last year! Bobby Valentine was/is the manager.
