Up a Paddle - Episode 42 - On a wing and a prayer
Nuts. I almost made 4 weeks in a row on time. Oh well. And just to warn you all, my schedule is going to get insane starting next week. I'm bumping up the number of University classes I'm taking in an effort to speed up the degree process. I will still be working, albeit at halftime. Still looking into when I will sleep, let alone podcast. Still, I'll give it the good old college try so to speak.
Top story: The O Canada movie at Epcot to be replaced this September.
End Of The Line For DS Web Browser
Sony to start video downloading service
ADV to take over sales and and distribution of Geneon titles in US.
Young Indiana Jones Chronicles DVDs announced.
Korean Actor to Star in Japanese/Korean City Hunter Drama.
Given that begging for diggs is getting me no where, I'd decided to put my energies somewhere more productive. Please, watch City Hunter. It's an awesome anime. And each episode is standalone for the most part, so even though there's over a 100 episodes, you don't need to make a commitment. Just watch a couple and see what you think. I think you'll be pleasantly suprised.
Get Wild and Tough.

Ketchup has not always been made out of tomatoes. It started out as a general term for sauce, typically made of mushrooms or fish brine with herbs and spices. Mushroom ketchup is still available in some countries, such as the UK. Some popular early main ingredients include anchovy, oyster, lobster, walnut, kidney bean, cucumber, cranberry, lemon, and grape.
