The three norns.
Arthur Rackham, from Siegfried & The twilight of the gods, by Richard Wagner, London, 1911.
you make my black heart sweat
Long ago, a friend of mine, who was a pretty classic 80s punk, was walking through the campus housing area of a university, and one of the frat boys shouted at him: “You’re ugly, and your mother dresses you funny.” So he shouted back “Yeah, well, you’re ugly, and your mother undresses you seductively.”
And you might think that this would result in him getting beaten up by a bunch of angry frat boys, but what it actually resulted in was all but one of the frat boys laughing too hard to take offense.
Wit: Actually useful.
Could Graham use this incident in a story? It fits a character of his beautifully.

Dark Fantasy Concept Artist Wanted -
My employer is looking for a freelance concept artist to do some character designs for a game. We’re shorthanded, so we’re looking for a top level artist to help design some characters. Think Dark Souls and you won’t be too far off. It’s not an anime or Warcraft look we’re going for.
There’s me: rahmakesart.com
and my husband: kgschmidt.com
Depending on pay rate, we’re interested. Where do we apply?

HAS YOUR MINECRAFT GARDEN GOT BROCCOLI, JESSE? HUH, DOES IT?
This was the culmination of a season’s effort for that plant, I’ll have you know. No Photoshop, no enhancements. It was delicious.
Michigan restaurant owner pays his employees $15 an hour
Anyone who has ever had a job working at a restaurant can relate, right? Work your butt off serving customers, sweeping the floor, cleaning dishes, and then taking the bus home after earning a near minimum wage salary.
Many restaurant owners believe they have no other option. Sometimes their reasoning is understandable. Other times? Not so much.
Moo Cluck Moo co-founder Brian Parker takes a different approach. He pays his employees $15/hour.
“How much more do we have to make? How big of a pile of money do CEO’s have to sit on?” he says.
