If you’re in Dublin this week, I suspect this may interest you. If you know THE SINGLES CLUB at all, you may be wondering how on earth they’re going to do it, and from what the writer tells me, they’re certainly going for it.

“Can I touch your butt” in Elvish.
This is so useful
No, this is not “Can I touch your butt” in Elvish. This is “Can I touch your butt?” in English, transcribed using the letters of the Elvish alphabet. There is a difference.
In Elvish, the letters of the alphabet correspond to sounds, not to words. The above text spells it out using one symbol to represent one letter of the original English, which is incorrect:
- c-a-n i t-o-u-c-h y-o-u-r b-u-t-t
If you really want to spell out an English phrase using the Elvish alphabet, you would do so phonetically, which would basically equate to one symbol per phoneme (sound):
- c-a-n a-i t-u-ch y-o-r b-u-t
If you actually wanted to write “Can I touch your butt?” in Elvish, one (very rough) translation would be:
Annog nin daf pladan tele ci?
Which, in Sindarin Elvish, roughly translates to, “Would you give me permission to touch your rear?”
Written in tengwar (the Elvish alphabet), it would look like this:
Sorry for the blurry quality.

Not Even a Curl that Down My Forehead
I never wore glasses,
Not the seeing kind anyway.
And that is why I could not pretend I have a cape under my shirt, and maybe that’s the reason why I could not fly.
But for a time, the shortest of which, I used to wander around in a blazer, a top hat and a pair of black round glasses. Once, when a kid from Mebaseret Zion asked me if I am a magician,
I answered “Yes.”

BEN SEARS, CARTOONIST.
Last night I saw my friend Ben Sears, a super cartoonist and chill guy, play drums in the band Xerxes, and it was fantastic. I made a little drawing of him (I swiped the million-arm-drummer idea from a Jordan Crane postcard I have on my wall he did of the the Ramones).
Yo I still can’t believe this happened. Thanks dusty

Pages from Scarlet, written by Brian Michael Bendis, art by Alex Maleev.
It’s a truly stand-out comic that can turn something as basic as introducing a character’s back story, into a visually memorable sequence.
At first glace, it just looks like fifteen panels in standard layout. But it’s really fifteen snapshots of the defining moments and characteristics in Scarlet’s life to date. Note that the last panel of a Portland landmark, which breaks the rhythm established so far, is enlarged to emphasize the most telling quality about her.
It’s exposition done as only a comic can do.
