Only if I was rich and dedicated enough. I know someone whose entire assets are tied up in 15th centuary reproductions no house no car and over a 100k of tents, armour and props.

 I did some Later Light cavalry reenactment but the 15th centuary stuff I did was afoot.
I have met Jason and Chris years back though and helped clear land they own outside Oxford and helped cook a medieval banquet they threw there a few years back.

Paul Kidby's wonderful parody for the Sgt Pepper 50th Anniversary.


50 years already  :'( remembering when it was the very newest and best and we all sang those songs forever.

A man returns a book to the library,
banged it on the counter and yelled, “I read this entire novel; there are too many names of people and no story at all!”
The Librarian looks up and responds,
“Idiot! So you were the one who took the Attendance book?"

I found Thug Notes a few days ago. It's this series of Youtube videos featuring an African-American gentleman who reviews and analyses classic works of literature... in a very stereotypical "gangsta" character. It's freaking funny.

Here's his take on The Fall of the House of Usher:

Thought of you @Eli_Freysson, however famous you become, keep a close watch on your manuscript or the cats will become even more famous centuries in the future. ;D

You know how post-apocalypse type settings tend to have unconventional, home-made weapons? I think I may have found the perfect one:
