Delilah & The Basilisk

Delilah & The Basilisk

Tue, 12/01/2009 - 21:40 by Ananth in response to delilah and the basilisk 1

This is the beginning of a short called Delilah & The Basilisk! We hope you enjoy it! We were getting the itch to do some more fiction. 

Our big crunch time just ended (I think), so hopefully things will get to normal around here! We'll do our best to start doing those midnight posts again ... always feel bad when we fall off the horse. 

Alluded to his before - we're doing PaleontoLOLgy shirts! Waiting for our printer to ship them to us - we'll keep you posted on when that is. Here's the thing about PaleontoLOLgy - it's a new version of the ZooLOLgy concept, but with some beloved prehistoric animals instead. In my mind, not much of a change. We didn't want to do another LOLology tee if it was going to be super similar, so we went the extra mile and upped the ante this time around - with glow! If you wear this shirt and step into the dark, the fossil record reveals itself:

In the light: 

In the dark:

We're SO excited about this design and we hope you are too! Yuko has drawn the skeletons incredibly accurately, so science lovers should be quite happy. We'll be putting these up for sale AS SOON as we get them in - holiday shipping deadlines will be determined once we get them in. 

See you guys Thursday!

Well....I don't remember, exactly. It was in one of those books of short stories they make you read in Highschool. I'll see if I can find it and get back to you.

Well, I've been searching

Well, I've been searching the internet all morning and I can't find any trace of the short story I'm thinking of, but this WAS something like 15-16 years ago, so it's pretty obscure I guess.

I'll try some other angles. If I find it, I'll be sure to send you the info direct.

man if you find it post it

Oh my god that is the greatest shirt ever. It combines my love of prehistoric critters and glowing things. I am buying one so hard, a black hole will be left in your inventory.

Everything is awesome today. That shirt is awesome. A poster of that would be awesome as well. The comic is awesome too.

I hope that basilisk whips that fat bastard's ass. Not the dog though. I like dogs.

O. M. G. That is the best use of glow in the darky I've seen on a shirt in a good long while. UH! MAY! ZING!

Comment by Joe (not verified) Thu, 12/03/2009 - 07:40

um. you guys? i hate to say it, because the shirt's already gone to the printers, but i think you spelt aLOLsaurus as aLOLsarus. It might be just me, my vision is bad, or maybe it's supposed to be that way? hopefully?
anyway i'm sure it's fine judging by the amount of happy people here who didn't notice!

Ugh, you're right... Guess

Ugh, you're right... Guess that's one to correct for the inevitable future batches? =)

You gave diLOLphosaurus the Jurassic Park neck frills? I am disappointed, but I guess I have just read too much DINOSAUR STUFF to accept how it is popularly portrayed.

I feel bad for saying this because I love the image so much ;-;
