Likeable pHanta-posts pHrom pHacebook

Have to remind myself that nowhere near everyone has Fb and that therefore those that don’t can’t access pHantacea on pHacebook as readily as those that do can. Here are four copy and pastes from the last little while.

Comments appreciated at bottom of entry.

After a lengthy absence, finally got around to adding some more entries to Serendipity and Phantacea. Got three monstrous newcomers to start with; more work budgeted for tomorrow, wherein lynx shall be thoroughly vetted.

Alabaster Leadface, a new entry on Serendipity and …, quotes extensively from a Fortean Times article entitled “Fashion Victims” (FT 345, October 2016) that’s not online yet.
Queen Elizabeth I of England (aka Leadface, pictured) caught smallpox when she was 29 in 1562. Because it left her scarred, “after her illness, she resorted to applying thicker layers of makeup. … Lead and mercury lotions caused [her skin] to react: breakouts and impurities were covered by increasingly thicker layers … and eventually [her] skin was corroded by the chemicals at work.”

May not be pHant-applicable but it is hard to resist

Day of the Deadhead

The Day of the Dead was last week. Except in what will henceforth be known as the United States of Am-idiocy. Actually, thinking about it this morning, yesterday was more like the Day of the Deadhead down there.

Have some sugar skulls shot at a local Vancouver restaurant on October 27, 2016.

Note that (presumably) the same Katrina (second one down) found its way into the Wilderwitch’s Babies promotional collage currently found on www.phantacea.com. Evidently she does not need to be kept in a refrigerator to last from year to year.

Jim McPherson Phantacea Publications has this year’s pick of the pumpkin prowl. Even though Jacks are by default orange, no comment meant re last night’s conclusion to smear campaign in Am-idiocy.

Jacks are, by default, orange

Other than when it comes to promoting a cure for aphantacea, Phantacea Publications is determinedly apolitical. That in mind, here are some of the leading lights of Halloween 2016’s Jack-o’Lantern photo-prowl in Vancouver Canada. (Well, two of seven are lit.)

This year’s pick of the pumpkin patch. Even though all jacks are orange by default, nothing here meant as a comment upon this year’s smear campaign south of the border

Of course pHantaJim is not necessarily apolitical. He also feels the need to point out that all jerks aren’t necessarily orange. However, in terms of the seemingly neverending smear campaign that finally concluded (?) last night, there is at least one jerk that is orange.

Jack shot in Vancouver. Has something of the Man in the Moon look to it, albeit not Helios on the Moon
