I am indeed indebted to ducktapeddonkey for noticing this.. first came the vibrator, and now, Rabbit Fever - the Movie (caution: audio auto-starts). And as Germaine Greer is quoted in the trailer, "Rabbits are good at pleasure". =:)

I'd seen Tintin and the Red Sea Sharks, and there've been some other quite good animated adventures, but I'd never known of Tintin et la Toison d'Or until recently. It's a wonderfully authentic adaptation, with the cast being uncanny resemblances of their characters - sadly, no English subtitles appear to exist currently, but it's great fun even catching but a part of what's said. ^_^

patch_bunny pointed out the trailer for The Bridge - a look at one of the most famous bridges in the world, of supreme elegance, and here, the destination for some seeking an exit from this world.

When eBay takes over your life.. is this how giro_batol will wind up? =:)

And pic for the day has to be UltraViolet's shiny rendition of andysquirrel, over here. NSFW.
Fuck FA - it won't let me see the image without logging in, and it won't let me log in *again*. For some reason, this happens pretty much every time I try; I always have to reset it, and I'm not willing to put up with that anymore.

Is there a cosmic rule that states that all art sites (DA, SA, FA etc.) must suck like they're black holes? >_>
Odd - seems fine here, but so it goes. ^_^; I have my cookies from FA set to be kept at all times, though, so I normally don't have to log in again.

I'm still wondering why FA's species pulldown menu offers four kinds of dragon, but nothing for rabbits. It's maybe not a high priority item, but still, that doesn't seem like the most difficult oversight to correct, unless they did something really stupid with the coding, like hardwiring the number of items in that list, along with their meanings. For the most part, though, FA chugs along okay, and its policies remain the most fur-friendly. (cf SA.. ugh, that was sleazy, abruptly cutting out all mature artwork, whatever the motivation)
*noddles* I have cookies set to be kept forever, too, actually. But even if I didn't, I'd expect to be logged out again - not to be told that my password isn't valid.

Oh well.

I still think all art sites suck, myself, and FWIW, there are other sites that do get it right. Take Flickr, for example - it does offer everything you get on DA/SA/FA as well (comments, favourite pictures, contacts (i.e., people you watch), groups and pools, and so on), and it works. And on top of it, the user interface is uncluttered and the site's fast - in other words, it doesn't get into your way all the time. Flickr is *fun* to use.

So it's really about time that Flickr started a new service for things other than photos (Paintr?)...
