A review of Dragon's Blood, a cologne I really like from Escential Oils and Lotions, on a whole blog devoted to scent reviews. I never thought about it before I read this review, but this would be a good cologne for a guy.

Swedish (I think) underwear commercial. Mpeg format.
Well, I thought it was funny.

Maybe I should stop reading webcomics for a while. Pibgorn and Sluggy Freelance are each about to wrap up the most complex time travel storylines I've ever read. Not just time travel, but time warping:
In Pibgorn, a powerful, but senile demon somehow splits reality in two and sends Geof's and Pib's "essences" (? not souls, but more than just their personalities) into Mozart's and Anna's bodies, and vice versa. Yeah, I know, but this story has been in progress for six months now. Anyway, the good news is that Dru somehow meshes the two realities back together. Yow. For those of you who might want to start reading Pibgorn, hang on until a new story arc; they're complex, but fairly self contained. The most back story you'd need to know is that a succubus and a fairy are in love with the same mortal and have become friends because of it. Really.
Sluggy Freelance, on the other hand, is more complicated: there's potentially 8.5 years of back story in Oceans Unmoving, which I've been totally loving (but not the interruptions, filler strips [Pete Abrams TM] and especially not the 4 month interruption [ahem]) since it started in January 2005. I suspect I'll fully appreciate the momentum and beauty of Oceans Unmoving when, like Dangerous Days Ahead, it's collected ALL TOGEHTER in a book, and that's years off. I think it's possible to enjoy Sluggy without all the back story, but to get all the back story one would need to buy all the books and read the online archives of work not in books, and those archives at this time, with fillers and guest strips, are vast and, I feel, confusing and could be tough to get through. I made it, but I bought all the books and I've been reading since Snowfinger (December 2001). And Oceans Unmoving still threw me for a loop today. Oh well, I still love it. Just my opinion, but it would help if the print collections came along faster. The most recent one, Dangerous Days, ends before December 2002.
So, maybe I should take a break from webcomics... nah.
Oh! And if No Need For Bushido goes any slower, it's going to start going backwards! I wish you guys would do a book so I can have the whole story in a more accessible (for me) format. In spite of all the bitching, this is another
complicated deeply and richly facetted webcomic with plot lines coming together nicely that I can NO LONGER LIVE WITHOUT.
God, I love the internet, really I do.

"18 Democrats betrayed all of us by voting with 55 goose-stepping Republicans to defeat the filibuster. We were betrayed by many Senators we worked very hard to elect. Call those Senators and share your anger (in a controlled way, of course) with their receptionists:
Akaka (HI), Baucus (MT), Bingaman (NM), Byrd (WV), Cantwell (WA), Carper (DE), Dorgan (ND), Inouye (HI), Johnson (SD), Kohl (WI), Landrieu (LA), Lieberman (CT), Lincoln (AR), Nelson (FL), Nelson (NE), Pryor (AR), Rockefeller (WV), Salazar (CO)"
Democrats.com, January 30, 2006 update
Sigh. I'm so disappoined in Inouye and I'm really starting to have negative feelings about Landrieu. And Robert Byrd? WTF? All these 18 jerks should lose their seats to real Democrats.
