Since February 25, 2012, Bull Runnings has been viewed on computer screens in 93 different countries. Here are the top 24:





Mint In the Box!

12 04 2012

Much was made recently of the decisions of the Abraham Lincoln Library and Museum and the Gettysburg National Military Park Visitor’s Center to sell a John Wilkes Booth bobblehead doll action figure in their gift shops, and the subsequent decisions of those entities to discontinue the sales of the item in the wake of a public outcry. I, of course, could not resist the opportunity to get one for my library. It came today. I think some of the earlier stories manipulated JWB by purposely tilting his wobbly noggin in such a way as to make him, somehow, more sinister in appearance. With his head on straight, he doesn’t look any crazier than Senator Jim Lane of Kansas.

In All His Assassinistic Glory!

Two For the Eyes & Ears

Here are two I ran across yesterday.

First, courtesy of Keith Harris at Cosmic America – very well done on many levels. Watch this Wesley Jensen bit a few times full screen – it gets better every time, and even stitch nazis will dig it. Go here for some background and a “making of” piece – the reenactor groups are the 72nd NY, 42nd VA and Hurt’s Battery (see here).

Next from Lee White at Army of Tennessee. Not much of a video, but I’ve been a Leon Russell fan for a long time.

Lots of chatter on the web about the Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter film now in production. I reviewed the Seth Grahame-Smith novel before it was released a while back. In fact, I wrote a few articles on the topic. But just for kicks, go here for all my Vampiric posts – they’ll run backwards from this one.

…for me to post something new, check out this post from 2009. Goofy stuff.





Upcoming Seminar – 1861: First Blood

17 02 2011

Liberty University will be holding their 15th Annual Civil War Seminar March 25-27. The topics to be discussed are 1861 events, and among the speakers are Ethan Rafuse on First Bull Run and Jim Morgan on Ball’s Bluff. And who knows where John Rambo might show up.  Nobody expects John Rambo.  His chief weapon is surprise and fear.  Err.., his two weapons are surprise, fear, and ruthless efficiency. Umm..his three weapons are surprise, fear, ruthless efficiency and an almost fanatical devotion to high explosives…oh, bugger.

Read more about the seminar – which has nothing at all to do with Rambo or The Spanish Inquisition – as far as I know – here.

And now for a little British humor…
