Easy Drinking? Dudes, whisky doesn't have to be just for old folks anymore, and neither do you run the risk of affectation. I so totally want the smokey peaty one, though my taste test tells me I'm more likely to prefer the rich spicy one (so does this mean I should like my whisky how I like my men?) but sadly there are no stockists in my part of Cananananananada. Shame. Linkie originally found through BBC, is this cheating?

Curious George: It ain't stealin'! I read a lot of musicblogs, but it's kinda a pain in the ass to download each track individually... I like RSS feeders, but they don't automatically pick up the files (at least, Thunderbird doesn't). Is there a similar software that just cruises blogs you subscribe to, and downloads anything with .mp3 after it? Ideally, this should sync with iTunes so that I could have daily playlists...
