The Muse & Doublethink (Click either photo to see it on Flickr)

As promised, I’ve dug through the archives! I’m not going to play all of my cards at once of course, but I’ve got one photo from 2002 and another from 2003. It’s hard to believe there’s only a year between the photos, but it’s true! This is… I think… the day before a big party. A party that I have photos of… but I’m not going to share! It was a fancy dress party and I’m wearing a stick-on moustache…

I happened to pass by the mirror earlier (I don’t do it often — image issues, y’know!) and thought hm, those Internet folk have probably never seen me like this before… You see, I nearly always have facial hair — as in, more than what you usually see in my self-portraits.

(Click for larger! You can see my tongue… cool.) I vaaant to suuuck yourr bluuud! Just kidding, I don’t really. I mean, I like nibbling soft, fresh flesh as much as the next guy… but I’m not a blood sucker or anything like that! This didn’t quite work out how I intended… but again, I ran out of daylight (how fitting!) I actually have huge incisors — you know, those canine teeth that vampires have — which is the main…
