Heat and humidity and sometimes rain, Summer working itself up into its big finale.
Sultry, or depending on your perspective, just sweaty and sticky and gross.
Keeping up the Blender tradition of not being constrained to review books and movies right when they're released, Lupschada graces us with a
review of the DVD "Kissing Jessica Stein". (Actually, I missed it when it came out, but I'm glad she got me to go see it.)
Another good month of works and quotes. Hope you enjoy it all!
