There's nothing like seven hours on a bus with loud, old Italian people. It would be very hard for me to type an impression that would do justice to the mix of gibberish, proper names, and Italian words or phrases I actually recognized. They're not yelling; it's how they talk.
Those seven hours were split into three hour and four hour segments, in between which I enjoyed a pleasant afternoon with one of my Italian bands at an annual barbecue and pilgrimage, photos of which will be coming later in the week. For now, I'm hoping the naps I took between the singing and the loud inquiries of “ESPRESSO?? DOUGHNUT? CHE SE DICE?!” will leave me rested enough to face a particularly tough work week, with three more music gigs sprinkled in. With the last ounces of remaining energy I have right now, I shall gather PHANTASMIC LINKS:
(11) Do you know How to Raise a Dragon? This game will teach you, and offers several different outcomes based on a variety of variables that you'll be able to modify from any given point, once you play through all the scenarios once. Fun and “educational”.
Have a link to a game, movie, article, or anything else you think might be “phantasmic”? E-mail me and it just might appear in an upcoming PHANTASMIC LINKS!

MCF is a mild-mannered
artist from the suburbs.
His knowledge of obscure
comic book characters
is more powerful than Gladiator
of the Shi'ar Imperial Guard on
an ego-trip. Able to leap topics
in a single sentence faster than
a speeder-bike on the moon of
Endor, MCF has never written
about himself in the third person
and now dreads the day he
utters aloud the fateful phrase,
"MCF is gettin' upset!"
