    Fortunately there's also Radio NABA, a Latvian student radio station that is entirely lovely. No ads, and they have an incredible selection of music that's all over the map. And I mean that very sincerely, we're talking everything from harsh noise to reggae and jazz, and all points in between.

    A misguided marketing effort from Skittles? Do some digging for stuff on the Gamecube game 'Darkened Skye'.

    They're been at it for *years*.

    @El Goddamn Bat: It seems weird to me that the guy seems far, far less interested and present during this whole situation than his wife is.

    Pop history #26

    Keith Green was a Christian musician who performed through the 70's and early 80's until his death in a plane crash in 1982. He didn't just talk the talk, he walked the walk as well, running his home and five other houses as shelters for the poor and homeless. Keith was unswervingly committed to the actual commandments of Jesus; that his followers should above all take care of the poor, the sick and the imprisoned.

    'The Execution Of Lady Jane Grey' by Paul Delaroche - 1833. Possibly the greatest tragic scene ever produced by a modern painter, this work depicts the prelude to the beheading of sixteen-year-old Jane Grey. Lady Jane was executed in July 1530 at the command of Queen Mary 1st, known as Bloody Mary. The painting was thought to have been destroyed in the Tate Gallery flood in 1928, but was discovered in 1973 by the gallery's curator during a search through old materials damaged in the flood.

    "Bartitsu" must be the most awesome name for a martial art ever.

    @King Happybomb: Not sure if I agree with their "Good" spectrum (Rorschach is, at best, Chaotic Neutral), but those Neutrals and Evils are spot-on... dammit, now I kinda want to make one out of nothing but Batman characters.

    /NERD.

    @Vornaskotti: "...while taking many of their forms and practices from Oriental chop-socky and Chinese Boxing, [the creators and practitioners of Bartitsu] decided to forgo the traditional "colored belt" ranking system [...] instead showing rank and mastery by how large and how heavily-waxed one's moustache was, and the state of repair in which the moustache was kept was seen as a reflection of the purity and mastery of one's fighting form..."

    @Flabyo: That... yeah, I guess that doesn't surprise me much at all.
