"I was really excited to get the chance to finally meet these pandas, but when I asked to see them, I was told (after a lengthy pause) that they had grown too big, and her mum had sent them back to the zoo only the week before." Billy Bullshit
celebrates the tall tales that we all pretend to swallow until the teller is well out of earshot.

I've been having a great time exploring the maze that is Musarium
, wandering about and peeking into into various nooks and crannies to find such exotica as the wonderfully bizarre birdhand book
, and absorbing cultural artifacts and musings, including the poetic Visions and Icons
(I really love the way the text works with the images on this), the atmospheric Familiar Ghosts
(the texts will cue you on clicking through this somewhat dream-like landscape), the time-capsule imagery of Balkan Portraits
(1906-1910), the breathtaking portraits
of photographer Steve McCurry (famous for his National Geographic portait of the Afghani girl), the subterranean monologue of Grand Central
: the View Down Under, and the shocking and heartbreaking Without Sanctuary
: Lynching Photography in America. There's a lot more, so take your time. You can use this page
to access archived material.
