Porsupah smile by Djinni

(no subject)



This is an anime feature I'm going to have to keep an eye out for: Arayoru, telling the tale of a wolf and a young goat. The trailer's not subtitled, but that scarcely matters. It's available in QT and WMV formats, though the QT link seems b0rked - the slightly higher res version can be found here (6.6MB). Thanks to Dronon and Torrle. ^_^

Now, I can find my way around the City very well when it comes to anything in the arts or culinary aspects of life, but I just realised I don't have a clue where specifically to buy a towel locally. Well, a good towel; for now, I settled for something superbly garish from a local corner store. Orange teddy bears on neon pink! It's wonderful. ^_^ At least, it is now - after washing, for all I know, it'll resemble a sepia print of something from the Betty Boop archives.

Rather nice - just had my first Asian pear. It's shaped more like a large apple, and the taste is somewhere between the two. I'd tell you where in Japan it came from, but I seem to have eaten the tiny paper sticker that disclosed that detail.

The winning entry in this year's Wildlife Photographer of the Year is quite a stark piece indeed, and worthy of the prize. (Caution: one of the runners up features a former hare)

mycroftb pointed out this article on the use of podcasts containing entire University lectures, either as a means of catching up with missed lectures, or even outright replacements for traditional lectures. Wonderful idea - I'd have to agree with the essential point made therein, that when you have time for it, you're going to be able to be much more attentive.
