Augh! I am recovering from a severe attack of Real Life (huzzah grad school), best captured as a lolcat:

I thought lxtbattery was simply noting that we can always use some more electrical equipment.

AKMA that's hilarious!

Orange Tree, no worries, but I do hope you get to it. and other people too. a few people have said they have something but continue to work on it. first thought, best thought - just get it out there. plus, when you submit it you get the benefit that few blogs do, as at least one person will read it before it goes up and make editing comments. its kind of like an online writing group. if i really don't think it's ready (although it probably is ready), i'll either play with it to make it ready and see what you think, or make broad suggestions as to how you could do it.

I ended up starting over after my comparative idea didn't really go much of anywhere as much as I wanted. But I started a different one I like better, will let you know.

I'm going to come in way late and third this, just because I find it amazing that dtrom4 thought to mention Li-Ion batteries, which are used as a reductant in meth production. The correlations between dtrom4's essay and WSABH are uncanny.

I'll hopefully have my Sunset Tree essay finished by next week, I went back to school recently and I'm a bit busier than I thought I would be but I'm working on it![/quote]
Ok, "next week" might have been a bit optimistic. As always, I blame school. I will definitely send you something eventually though. Sorry it's taking so long. :(

I just had a gut feeling that a list of batteries pertained to WHABH better than any other album.

i am ready to edit and post any and all essays submitted. no mas essay so far, unfortunately. hoping to see some more soon. over 4,500 views to date, so if you submit something, you'll be getting an audience. also, if we do get enough to have a decent page length, assuming permissions obtained from the various writers, i will be publishing a limited edition of them in hard copy, not-for-profit format. so get yourself published, submit an essay!

wonderful new piece up on Sad Young Cardinals on The Sunset Tree by our very own Darkshines. I really enjoyed reading it. I hope you all do, too.

nicely done, darkshines.

as everyone knows, there is one reason, and one reason only for the volume knob on the stereo in a 1990 subaru loyale.

to overpower the ominous sounds of the sticky, sticky lifter.
