a webcomic i started recently

a friend bought me a domain recently so that i could start a webcomic (i'd been keen on doing it for a while, but never got motivated enough to start)... due to his very kind and generous support, i feel a little like an artist with a patron (it's a strange sensation, because i've always doodled onl...

Re: Not well known countries in movies

it's quite unfortunate that the movie industry is structured in such a way that most asian movies don't usually make their into american cinemas... except in film fest screenings and/or very limited shows, or unless it's a really epic movie shot by some big name director...

Re: Do grapefruit rinds/zest have much flavor.

(i like to eat grapefruits in my room and leave the peel in a container as an air freshener)... so yes, i suspect that you can probably use it when cooking. maybe not in the same recipes that call for l...

No one is saying anything one way or another about this leading to higher risk of cancer or anything, but it seems like a bad sign to me. i'm wondering... how much caffeine do you have to ingest on a da...
