- One of the cool things about getting past my 20's is that when I am called upon to support my friends' artistic endeavors -- say, seeing their band play or reading their stories -- there's a decent chance it will turn out to be pretty good. I mean, if they've stuck with it this long, there's probably a reason. And with that strange intro I urge all of you to rush down to your local comic book shop to pick up the just-released and damned-funny Patchouli One-Shot. I recommended the online strip numerous times, and I'm not gonna stop now just because it cost me a couple bucks. The Patchouli comic was drawn by Jessica Milazzo, who is more than just a friend...she's a Friendster! I promise you'll never look at performance fleece the same way again!
- The mysterious Alchemist, usually seen lurking around Jahna D'Lish's site, noticed my love of all things Belgian and sent along word of this intriguingly named beer: Kasteelbier Donker, brewed by Brouwerij Van Honsebrouck. And how does the Donker taste? Let's ask Ohioan krisbierjaeger:
If I'd have done my ratebeer homework and read the reviews, I'd have been prepared for the dominating sweetness and chosen perhaps another time to sample this one -- like maybe when i had a small flock of hummingbirds over to brunch. This big bottle of beer is to share with folks over a late breakfast fruit salad; it's a dark plum-brown, clear, with feminine lacing. Great aroma, solid malts, heavy dripping raisins and roses, some dark earth, and brown sugar sizzling on baked beans. [...] I'd try it again with waffles, but somebody else will have to buy.This is one of over 550 beer reviews by krisbierjaeger, which seemed mighty impressive until I saw that omhper from Sweden has reviewed over thirty-five hundred beers! Holy crap!
- To a certain undesirable element who keeps leaving strange comments for my various posts: for the thousandth time, I am not one, have never been one, and have absolutely no interest in the Plushies/Furries lifestyle! It just happened once and there's a perfectly logical explanation for the...incident.
- Finally, if any of you folks are gonna be in LA around XMastime or Vegas around New Year's and want to buy me a drink, feel free to drop me a line.
