The Lusty Month of May

Plum blossoms.

That darling month when everyone goes blissfully astray…
Well, I don't know about you, but Your Editor is ready to go gambol in some fields. It's been a long winter, in spite of the overoptimistic Groundhog, and that sun is awfully inviting. Go out and pet a flower. Admire a bee at work. Get some ice cream. And remember to take your internet-enabled Device and your mobile with photo app along, so you can share the wonders of spring with us.

That's if you're in the northern hemisphere, of course. If you're in the southern one, like our Willem, you can send us photos of autumnal beauty. Which he has. See below for a seasonal contrast, courtesy of our two gardens. There's more nature in this issue, to wit, an oryx to admire and an equally admirable horse, which is patiently modelling Malabarista's new medieval saddle. Guess who's going jousting this spring? And why do we suddenly have the urge to sing 'We Will Rock You'? Best of luck, Mala!

We have more medieval lore for you in this issue. Try to pass the quiz on the real Middle Ages, you LOTR and Game of Thrones fans. Ha! Take that! And celebrate May madness by reading a vintage fantasy bit, straight from Gamemaster Tennyson himself.

Others are underway this season, all over the insane continent of Europe. What do I mean? Just look at the photo Milla sent us from her trip to Germany. Now I ask you, who's decorating Berlin these days? Mad installation artists?

More European madness appears in the Ninja Film Review, in which we consider the wonderful documentary, Chuck Norris vs. Communism. No insult intended to Awix's favourite action hero, but Statham doesn't have a whole page of Romanian jokes dedicated to him, now does he? Awix will also be along with a real cinema review, so don't fret.

There's more murky humour in here, and more than a few writing challenges to get your typing fingers flowing. So read, start arguments (or just natter), and get ready to send more Stuff! And have a wonderful week out there!
A flower bed with loveliness in.
