Buffy soda

This is weird, might be worth looking at if you're in the USA.

"Limited edition" Buffy Season 8 comic soda.

Apparently legal downloads of some or all of the BtVS season 8 comics are now available, someone said there was a link from the above page but apparently not. Anyone got the right URL?

(no subject)

Saw two more bicycle rental stations today, again quite close to home - doubt that they've appeared since yesterday, I just didn't look in the right direction yesterday. So that's five within a 10 minute or so walk from home.

Also saw someone riding one through traffic, fairly fast, so it looks like they can move reasonably well.

Another COA nomination...

Another COA nomination:

Forever - nominated for Best Multiple Crossover (it's Buffyverse / Highlander / about four other crossovers, most notably Veronica Mars and Six Feet Under)

The previous ones are

Best non-Buffyverse crossover - The Return

Best Highlander crossover - Grounds For Divorce

Best Multiple Crossover - Kafkaesque (yes, this does mean I have two stories in the same category, possibly reducing the chance of either winning, but never mind)

Best Movie Crossover and Best of British - Deeds of Maidenly Unkindness

Voting doesn't start until 16th August, so it's possible that there will be more.

Laser and Lemonade

So... I was shining my green laser into various liquids, as one does, and thought I'd try cloudy lemonade.

The glass is quite interesting, but I don't think the photo really does justice to the radioactive green ambiance. The bottle worked quite well too, except that I was surprised to see a very visible beam inside the bottle. Then I realised that I'd just opened the bottle to pour the glass, and it was full of a mixture of water vapor and CO2, which showed the beam beautifully.

Some time soon I really do need to set up the big camera on a tripod and do this properly, rather than trying to hand-hold it without flash.
