I tell you, I'm losing it as I get old.
I saw this, and instantly wondered what kind of planes they were. Somehow or other I got it in my mind that they must be Japanese, which confused me because I couldn't remember an Japanese plane with a tail like that. So I went to Wikipedia and ran through them all. No, it wasn't a Nell, and it wasn't anything else, either.
Then I did what I should have done to begin with: clicked through and looked at the fullsized version, and saw that the man working on it was anglo. Of course, said I, they're B-25's.
Kodama and the haunted teddy bear!
Kodama goes to the mall to buy some lingerie, and then spots a vintage teddy bear in a shop and buys it.more...

I dunno whether any of you are old enough to remember an ad campaign for brassieres that went "I dreamed ... in my Maidenform Bra". It was kind of like the American Express Card ads, where they kept coming out with new versions over a period of years.
It seems a strange advertisement, for obvious reason. Think of it: what they're saying is that if you (a woman) use their product, you'll get no-pants dreams. This is a good thing?
Freefall: Now that is a big surprise. I sure didn't expect it.
UPDATE: And now Florence knows the real reason for all the data-chaff about him.

A few days ago my smoke detector went off in the morning, and kept doing so off and on for maybe half an hour, then stopped.
This morning it woke me at about 6:30 and it's been intermittently going off ever since. I suppose I should mention that there wasn't any smoke or anything like that, either time. (No, I don't smoke cigarettes or anything else.)
I got fed up with the damned thing and called the office, and the handyman came and replaced it about noon.
When he took the old one off, it was crawling with ants. I guess some of them got inside it and interfered with the detector gap.
I hope the new one isn't vulnerable to ants that way.
UPDATE: I haven't seen any ants in my apartment, which is why this was such a surprise.
A group of student activists at Dartmouth have issued a list of demands to the college administration, including:
Incorporate into each department at LEAST one queer studies class.
I look forward to seeing a "queer studies" class taught in the Math department, and what it would cover. Or Oceanography. Or Electrical Engineering.

I feel like complaining about my life, so I'm going to do what Brickmuppet does: put some cheesecake above the fold, and hide all the unpleasant stuff below the fold:

There hasn't been much activity here lately because there just isn't much to talk about. You can tell I'm desperate when all I have to post is nudity shots...
The latest episodes of Witch Craft Works and Maken Ki took a while for my selected sub groups to get around to, and for good reason. Neither was particularly good.
Maken Ki was another "girl of the week" episode, only for a change Takeru wasn't even in this one. The teaser says that next week will be Kodama, so maybe we can have some decent pettanko tsundere action -- but probably not.
And they censored the hell out of it, too.
Witch Craft Works is getting really strange. Actually, they're starting to explain things, but... well... learning what's going on is taking the magic out of the show, as it were. The mystery led me to imagine much bigger things than they're actually telling story about. Another problem with it is that Kagari isn't very interesting: fire and boobs, and there really isn't anything else there. For the show to become more captivating they need to develop her as a character, and they're not doing it. Plus, the Macguffin of the show, name of Evermillion, has only shown up once and then only briefly. (She's voiced by Mamiko Noto, another reason to mourn her virtual complete absence.
Witch Craft Works feels a bit like Yuushibu did, where they've decided to make one cour of show out of only one or two basic plot arcs, and thus having to spread everything out. And some of the running jokes are wearing thin.
Meanwhile, I still haven't found anyone writing anything about the Mouretsu Pirates movie.
Man, this season has been a real loser. And right now it looks like the only thing I have to look forward to in the next season is the restart of Fairy Tail.

Seems like this series joins a lot of others in front-loading fan service, which tapers down as the series proceeds. (Although it looks like they tossed in a dollup at the very end.)
Ep 3 features just a bit of nudity, and there wasn't any at all in ep 4. NSFW below the fold.more...

Last time it was mud wrestling. This time it's clear Jello, which at least has the advantage of not changing the colors.
You mix up a bucket of gelatine, and pour it on, and then the fun begins!more...
