The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Season 2:  “The Cherry Blossom Affair.”

Superspy Illya Kuryakin hopes no one noticed him attempting to break into a shop with an unlocked door.

There are reasons why I love this show :D

We’re voting on how to celebrate the MFU 50th Anniversary this September.  Come on over and tick a few boxes.  50 Years, guys!!  Time to Party :)

How I Would Paint Happiness

Something sudden, a windfall,
a meteor shower. No—
a flowering tree releasing
all its blossoms at once,
and the one standing beneath it
unexpectedly robed in bloom,
transformed into a stranger
too beautiful to touch.

Sometimes I hear people talk about “fanservice” as if it is a moderately new thing in media, and to them I say:  have some Illya Kuryakin in a white-and-gold burnoose on a white Arabian stallion.

Saturdays are rife with cats and rightfully so, we say.
Because nothing is quite so grand as NYPL’s Caturday.

For today’s installment, we thought we’d share
An ode to cats, both bold and fair.

For some, black cats are luck gone bad.
