Perhaps the most beautiful music video I've seen: Death Cab for Cutie - I Will Follow You into the Dark (FLV). So deeply sad, hopeful, wistful, melancholic, and loving.

mycroftb just introduced me to the I Can Eat Glass Project: 'The Project is based on the idea that people in a foreign country have an irresistable urge to try to say something in the indigenous tongue. In most cases, however, the best a person can do is "Where is the bathroom?" a phrase that marks them as a tourist. But, if one says "I can eat glass, it doesn't hurt me," you will be viewed as an insane native, and treated with dignity and respect.'

Make random Sam & Max stuff, win stuff! And there are new S&M goodies to peruse in Telltale's store, including a spiffy b&w sketchbook, "The Age of S&M", and a Max skull & crossbones shirt.

'This is Steve's first Sam & Max book in about 10 years, and it's full of never before seen concepts, doodles, and other Freelance Police-related works of art. Some of our favorite parts are the inside-cover sketches of Sam & Max, along with notations, that Steve made as guidelines for the people doing the animated series, and the list of lines and scenarios that the censors cut from the episodes. (Example: "Please do NOT show Max biting down on a battery while standing in water.")'

In the US government's tireless efforts to protect the American populace from foreign threats, its citizens are now free from the risk of Vegemite.
 
 
 
 
 
 
I admit it - I'm not much of one for Marmite either. ^_^; But maybe it's one of those flavors you begin to entertain after one's age reaches double digits. I couldn't stand mushrooms or tomatoes until I was about twelve, although I loved cream of mushroom or tomato soup. (I lay no claims to consistency =:)

Will any of the major parties take up the cause of promoting Irn-Bru and Vimto to the world, though, or let such native drinks be snuffed out in the face of the Coca-Cola Company? (Assuming they've not bought both up by now, of course) And Tango, too, most definitely including their commercials.
