August 23, 2004


I'm back -- tan, fit and rested, as it were (well -- pale, out-of-shape and exhausted -- let's not quibble over adjectives), and blessed with a skull that's utterly empty of the usual preoccupations, betes noir (or is that bete noirs?) and other assorted effluvia. Comments for August 2004 are open again (the rest will remained closed until I upgrade MT -- had a nasty bout a few weeks back of some spam linking to the kind of site I don't want to see anywhere, least of all linked from my page), so if my musings over Jonny Quest offend, if you find Don Messick's voice characterization of Bandit far too minimalist compared to his more robust and baroque work as Scooby Doo -- feel free to let fly.

It's "bêtes noires", but don't worry, the sense comes forward... ;-)

Let me tell you that I have found your blog very interesting, perhaps because we share the interest for a bête noire. Check the special link to your blog that I put in mine...

Congratulations for a very enlightening site.
