Handshakes 10: That Godawful Tattoo


When the new “Clash of the Titans” came out, I took umbrage that they had made Pegasus black, but I’ve always been suspicious of what I think I know, especially things I’ve believed my whole life, so I researched it. (theoi is a great resource) As it turns out, if you consult the original texts, there’s no mention of what COLOR Pegasus was, nor even a mention of whether he even HAD wings–only that he could fly (as could the horses who pulled the chariot of Apollo, who also had no wings). Damn. Next someone’s going to tell me that Festivus isn’t a real holiday.

To answer the given question, yes. The Greeks were, in fact, on many drugs.

In fact, to this very day some of the Greeks are on many drugs, always. They tend to be found on college and university campuses gathered together in “fraternities,” wherein they convince each other of their own superiority and engage in the most terrible of debaucheries.

Wonder what they’d think of the new Friendship is Magic series? Oh dear.

Then again, if he’s as changeable as his friend is saying he is, I’m sure he’s a closet Brony in no time at all…

MLP:FIM is freaking awesome! I LOVE that series and I am 20, but I don’t care. I’m gonna get a cutie mark tattoo…I just have to figure out what my cutie mark actually IS.

    I’m going to be at STAPLE! this weekend! Booth 82A! Come see me! I’ve never done a show in Austin, Texas before, and in fact I’ve never BEEN to Austin, Texas, before!

    In addition to all my usual convention fair (Skin Deep books, Borogove card game, monster prints, charms, medallions, stickers) I will have my special EXTINCT ANIMALS print (previously only sold at SPX and RCCC) as well as THREE BRAND NEW MEDALLIONS that aren’t even on sale at my store yet!
