Dream Dollars "Discover the mystery of Nadiria, the Lost Colony of Antarctica. Nadiria flourished as a utopian colony deep inside the Antarctican ice shelf for over thirty years until its mysterious disappearance in 1899. Here are the beautiful reproductions of its unusual currency, Dream-Dollars, studied by scholars and dream researchers for almost a century. Long unavailable, these exotic notes will amaze, astound, and fascinate all those interested in the strange and the beautiful."

The engraving's really amazing. I'm really impressed at how 1870's it looks. That said, this guy's not someone I'd want to support financially. He appears to be some kind of extremist. Scroll down to "Steve gets political."

Mister Mayor, did you visit the 'extremist' site? Its some kind of liberal parody site.

"The banknotes, according to Rumsfeld, constituted an act of aggression by somebody -- "but we're not sure who."

"I think we'll have to declare war on the whole world," Rumsfeld said, "just to be on the safe side."


I bet that domain name got him on some interesting lists, though....

Absolutely delightful.

Thanks!

Oh, I looked at it. And I don't quite get it. And it frightens me a bit.

But please don't think that I was suggesting for a second that it's not a very good post-- I really, really like his work and I appreciate your sharing it! (High school rivalries be damned!)

Wow, that's superb.

Thank goodness I don't have a domain name like that, otherwise I'd be on a 'list' too. How terrible it must be, to inhabit a 'list'. Reminds me of The Mikado. Thank heavens there are people who have 'lists', the terrorists can't possibly win now, eh? Goddamn hippies.

I tried to open one of the bills in Photoshop to get a closer look, but apparently Nadirian law forbids that! Sigh.
