Elizabethan London

Elizabethan London
Tyburn was an infamous execution spot west of London, used since medieval times. The Tyburn "tree" - a unique, multi-person gallows - erected in 1571 became a popular public spectacle, drawing crowds of thousands.Tyburn Tree blog is less blood-thirsty but hopefully topical, interesting and informative, if slightly bent to my personal topics of interest - books, writing, history, technology, with a smattering of politics and dash of pop culture, science and the downright strange. So "take a ride to Tyburn" and see what happens...

To Simpson or Not to Simpson...

 A few years back, when The Simpson's Movie first came out, someone (I assume some movie marketing company) put up a "Simpsonizer" online. 

Briefly, the Simpsonizer allowed you to upload a personal photo and "Simpsonize" it, granting the recipient a cartoon rendition of their photo transmuted into the permanent state of jaundice that is the typical Simpson's character.

After working my way through a panoply of relatives and work-associates photos, I decided to immortalize The Bard as a Simpson's character using the famous Chandos portrait

Simpsonized Shakepeare

It didn't come out too bad.

Unfortunately the Simpsonizer has vanished from the Internet, so I am unable to Simpsonize the cast of Game of Thrones...
