That’s Right! I Promised You Baby Birds!

So I got a little delayed with that. Sorry. Here are your birds.


This is a baby cardinal that recently hatched at my in-laws house. I think I will call him Stanley.


I think the various and sundry blog issues have been sorted. Please let me know if you run into any issues.

Also, I got to experience a silent migraine. No stars. I do not recommend this experience. Will not be ordering again.

My Picture In Print!

Hey! That photo on page 35 of this week’s OKGazette looks mighty familiar.


If you’ve been following me for the last year, it should look familiar to you too.

Here’s the original


Don’t worry, it’s being used with my blessing. Keep your fingers crossed that I can catch more awesome images like this one this weekend at Super! Bitcon. Come out and say hello.

Teasing Death

Met this guy the other day.


Evyl stood his ground


The TeenBot sized him up. Besides, there was a bear in a sombrero there for back-up.


Me? I did the only logical thing.


What? How would you react to meeting death in a gift shop? I knew he wasn’t there for me. When death comes for me, it’ll be random, hilarious, and earn me the lifetime achievement spot on the rubber knife award.

A Study in Hats

So what happens when the EvylEmpyre goes on a field trip?






Needs a hotdog


Surely the silliness couldn’t be generational


My goodness!


Oklahoma Aquarium Trip March 2014

Edit: Well that didn’t work too well. Sorry if you saw the gibberish

Took a school trip to the Oklahoma Aquarium last Friday. Thought I’d share some of my pictures with all of you.

We had a Starfish just letting it all hang out.

And just for Tam since she provided the nightmare fuel. I know, that’s a moray.

A lionfish.

Gasp! I just showed you a beaver!

All the colors!

And what trip to the aquarium would be complete without cookbooks for all the things you just saw!

You can see the rest here.

Another Photo Entry!

Local friend, Old Chief sent in this awesome shot of his niece test firing a Glock 26.  Click the link to his blog, he’s got a lovely family there.

Nicely done! And remember, get your entries in to win your very own copy of Glock: The Rise of Americas Gun.


I know, this was supposed to go up on Friday.  I’m a bad, bad blogger.  But really, I’ve only had two photographic entries for Glock: The Rise of America’s Gun.  You’ve got until the end of January to enter.

And without further adieu

BradBrad actually sent me several pics, but I picked this one just because I love all the smoke and implied noise.  That’s how to spend a weekend.  Brad doesn’t blog so I can’t link back to him.

And then we have Larry showing off his EBR



Well I’ll let Larry tell you about it

It’s a Saiga .223 with the Tapco trigger conversion, Tapco collapsible stock and pistol grip, Texas Weapons Systems Gen 1 dogleg scope rail, UTG quad rail foregrip, Grip Pod collapsible bipod grip and a quartet of Surefire 30 round “high-capacity ammunition clips”. That should be enough to give Fineshwine, Boxer, Jackson-Lee, et al the vapors…

I actually bought it with most of the fun stuff included but before the trigger conversion was done. At the time it had the Tapco T6 collapsible stock set that has the pistol grip integrated with the stock. In that configuration it was only 922r compliant with the 30 rd magazines.

I did the trigger conversion myself (Tapco G2 double-hook trigger group) and installed the new Tapco T6 stock and separate pistol grip, so now it is compliant no matter what magazine I’m using…which was the point of doing the conversion to begin with.

So there are the details. My Glock (36) only has 7 round magazines, so apparently I don’t have to worry about it getting up in the middle of the night and killing everyone in the house like the 11+ round magazines will do.

Thanks and best of luck!
