You know what I’m grateful for? That they never made movie covers for the Harry Potter books. Can we all just take a moment to appreciate that?

Remember that time when Stephen’s pet bat attacked poor Killick?

I smile like a fool everytime I remember it.

These books. These books, I mean.

Don’t Forget Your Old Shipmates


One of the most famous sea shanties around, very precious, and very true to the Age of Sail, as being shipmates with someone was an important notion. Its meaning was past friends and close to brothers, a bond that may remind you of those of soldiers fighting together.

When they left a ship, sailors parted and there was no real way of staying in touch, except maybe letters, but that would be ridiculous: the letter would have to fly after a ship around the world to reach another sailor, and sailors weren’t the most writey creatures around.

So the only thing you could really do would be not to forget your shipmate, and bid them not to forget you.

And it’s a pretty good motto for nowadays as well, when we leave behind a school or job or anything and we won’t see much of our friends again - becoming thus timeless and characteristic of human beings and not of an Age. What I like about it is that it brings a breath of joy into such a sad thing.

Cellphones, emails, and social networks - we’re glad for them, but it doesn’t mean they will keep a steady friendship running, they usually don’t. And we haven’t got letters anymore, just half-tired texts. We all have stories of how we kept in touch with someone for some time, only until we realized the whole thing was getting quite meaningless.

It’s not the same as sharing your days aboard a ship. All we can say is “don’t forget your old shipmate, faldee raldee raldee raldee rye-eye-doe!”

A History of Staying in Touch and its Meaning, that’s something I’d like to write one day…

The Vampires(translated)

by Zeca Afonso

In the grey sky
Below the mute star

Flapping their wings

In the still night
They come in bands
With velvet feet
Sucking the blood
Fresh from the herd.


If anyone is fooled
By their serious manner
And open their doors
To them on their arrival.

They eat everything
They eat everything
They eat everything
And they leave nothing.

From everywhere
The vampires arrive
They perch in buildings
They perch in the streets
They bring in their bellies
Old spoils
But nothing binds them
To spent lives.

They are the stewards
Of the whole universe
Masters by force
Commanders without laws.
They fill their barns
And drink new wine
They dance the round dance
In the king’s pine forest.

They eat everything
They eat everything
They eat everything
And they leave nothing.

On the ground of fear
The vanquished tumble
We hear the screams
In the sweltry night.
They lie in the cesspools
Victims of their beliefs
And nothing drains away
The blood of the herd.

If anyone is fooled
By their serious manner
And open their doors
To them on their arrival.

They eat everything
They eat everything
They eat everything
And they leave nothing.

James Lopez, a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman), is currently trying to raise money for his traditionally animated project Hullabaloo. Hullabaloo is a steampunk short film which Lopez is hoping will help save the cause of 2D animation, and possibly lead to a TV series or film. So, if you’re interested in badass steampunk ladies or traditional animation, may I recommend you give a dollar or two. Hullabaloo's IndieGogo page is over here, visit to donate and learn more! And I’ll conclude with the plot: 

Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.

Together, Veronica and Jules learn that Jonathan Daring has been kidnapped by a mysterious group of influential persons, who seek to use his latest invention for nefarious purposes. These villains are wealthy and influential and neither Veronica nor Jules can stop them openly. But determined to save her father and holding true to the family creed that technology should be used for the good of all, not the greed of some, Veronica assumes the secret identity of “Hullabaloo”, a goggled crusader who uses wits and science to combat evil and oppose the nefarious conspiracy that has taken her father.
