Avatar    Fri. 8/14/15 6:59pm Rich in Washington:

I found the Wizard's Ice books completely implausible. The idea of melding magical fantasy fiction with the hustle and bustle of crack cocaine dealing was a piece of niche fiction that just didn't speak to me. I am surprised there were so many books in the series..

Hi, Vicki-sensei !
Thank you for putting all your albums for free on UbuWeb, I really like the ones from the 90s !
Of and, this yodelling made me remember of the fourth track of Lowest Common Dominator !

Ho-hos are chocolate cakes filled with white cream and covered in more chocolate. They are also known as Ding-dongs; different brand but same concept.

the Hostess pantheon was strange. There was King Ding Dong, yet the fruit pie's anthropomorphic avatar was simply named Fruit Pie. But at least he was a magician.

Wait, I mixed it up. Ho-hos are rolled swiss cake snack cakes. Sometimes called Yodells.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 8/14/15 7:14pm Carmichael:

No, Ho-ho's are flat pieces of cake with cream on them, which are then rolled into a loaf. I know my crappy dessert foods, and so do my few remaining teeth.
Avatar    Fri. 8/14/15 7:15pm Rich in Washington:

I think America's now dizzying array of snake cakes - many of them anthropomorphic - had a lot to do with cold war tension and anxiety.
Give them ornate and elaborate snacks, they said.
  Fri. 8/14/15 7:16pm JakeGould:

Snack cakes are like pasta: Tons of different shapes but it's all the same crap.

You're right, V! Memories are often better than the real thing, anyway!
Avatar    Fri. 8/14/15 7:22pm Rich in Washington:

it usually is, with most thing. The internet has sort of made it impossible or there to be that gulf of time, space, where you couldn't immediately see that thing, whatever it is.

Joined late today (damn work) but happy to be here!

The snack cake comments are making me hungry...

Great set too, by the way. But perhaps that goes without saying, it's simply a "given"?
Avatar    Fri. 8/14/15 7:24pm People Like Us:

yes, the problem with the internet is you don't have time to wonder anything, you just go and find out

  Fri. 8/14/15 7:34pm P-90:

You're right about Jodorowsky's Dune, he may actually have created something unique in the history of cinema-- it exists (and always will) as a classic movie in our imaginations, in a way no movie that actually gets made ever will (or could.) I know some people who worked on it, literally everyone connected to it was infused with a kind of inspiration I've never seen before (on a movie crew), they were all so completely convinced they were working on something that would be unique and timeless. And it's become that!
  Fri. 8/14/15 7:34pm Rudy:

and yeah, we should move on, and talk more about philosophers, computers and stuff like that
Avatar    Fri. 8/14/15 7:35pm People Like Us:

yes, the inspiration was viral and magical
