Porsupah smile by Djinni

(no subject)

For the musically inclined, a question, if I may: what should I look for in a simple USB keyboard? Low cost would be a good thing, ideally, but portability's perhaps a stronger concern - nothing too big or heavy, so it can fit into airline checked baggage. This eKeys unit seems like a good starter model. My main use, to begin with, is just getting a feel for music again, using Garageband to play around and see what I can do.

There are many rabbit photos on the web, but I'd have to say Firefox is a particularly adorable example. ^_^

It's probably been in existence for years, but I've only just noticed it: Arj & Poopy have their own site now. (If the series name isn't familiar, it's a Flash series by the same creator as the video for Everyone Else Has Had More Sex Than Me) jharish might particularly appreciate episode 4, "Brutally Ambushed".

Keep Your Jesus Off My Penis is a catchy ditty. (Streaming Real or WMV only, unfortunately. Or, if you've been really bad, streaming Flash video)

Hm! Think I'm going to have to run some transcoding tests to see how Hyzenthlay compares against Ocelot, per MHz. A Popcorn 1.0.3 run on a particular DVD, which it claimed to be a total of about three hours, completed in about half an hour, saving the result to a 4.4GB disk image. Pity the app's not cheaper, but it does do its job very well indeed. (Actually, the new price isn't so bad)

Mmmm, sushi.. and the owner there knows Bill and I fairly well. So we got two little "specials" thrown in. ^_^ Now, I'm not generally one for clams- the flavor's fine, but that texture just doesn't agree with me. But this lightly grilled king clam was something uncommonly good, so very soft, almost scallop-like.. moreso, even! Then, later on, grilled salmon wrapped in nori, encased in thin, well-scored halibut. And finally, even as we were heading towards Very Full, a handroll for both of us, with his special spicy tuna - a far cry from the usual spiciness I've tasted in sushi, almost Thai in nature. Not actually hot, although Bill might disagree. ^_^
