Ginger ale: soda or not? ()

by fluffy at 4:57 PM
I understand why seltzer and club soda are normally sold in the water section of the store (rather than the soda section), but why is ginger ale sold with (and priced like) seltzer and club soda? I've never understood that.

So, tonight, nobody else in my usual karaoke crowd showed up, and I tell you what, they missed out something fierce.

There was a going-away party for some guy named Tyler (who was apparently a regular there a while ago, before I started showing up) since he's moving to Cincinnati. He was drunk off his ass. So were the other dozen or so people in his entourage.

Another new favorite wine ()

Tempranillo: one to look out for. Picked up a bottle at Ballard Market yesterday (based on one of their wonderful recommendation signs) and had it tonight with barbeque chicken pizza. It's quite good, somewhat like a drier Beaujolais, with a very clean finish.

Heathcliff is Marmaduke for cat lovers.

Marmaduke is Heathcliff for dog lovers.

Discuss.

New series: Unity ()

by fluffy at 9:16 PM
I'm a glutton for punishment and disappointment, but I'm starting yet another new attempt at a comic (back to my serious, extended-narrative nature, á la Eaveston). Episodes will start running on the 13th (when the current sketchbook buffer runs out). One thing I'm trying hard to do is to avoid planning too much of the story ahead, which I think is where things always go awry for me (because I end up getting bored with all the stuff I've already planned out), so I'm doing whatever I can to avoid thinking of plotline things.

I do have some aspects of the environment worked out (I know some things about the main character, and generally what the environment is, and some of the early setting-establishment things which will happen to the main character) but I'm trying my hardest to not come up with anything else. And of course, the whole need to discover everything as I go along is the design of the comic.

Hopefully this one will last a while.
