QOTD: Battle scenes. Yep, all-out war, with stick figures and little swoosh marks for the bombs and the bullets. None of my stick figures actually were dead, though. Only the machines got “killed”. At heart, I was always really a pacifist.

    Gary- I’m a lurker no more. I’m a newbie to the site and love it. I’ve been going the archives in reverse order.

    QOTD: I drew Heavy Metal logos. Twisted Sister was my favorite (my intials!)

    Love the shows. Question: Do you taste all the wines at room temparature? Do you chill the whites and taste the reds at 65 degrees? I have found some whites (Sauvignon Blancs) change flavor as they become more room temp. Thanks for changing my wine world.

    QOTD: Strangely enough, I doodled and drew pictures of the janitor at our school as a superhero and formed them into comic books. However, we didn’t portray him as a hero, it was more of a stab at him. I had a strange imagination as a kid…

    quick question while I’m still watching this episode: Is it my imagination, or do I see more screw caps on pinot gris and sauvignon blanc than on other varietals? Why have these two seemed to overcome the stigma easier than others?

    used to doodle these huge battle scenes, a la GI Joe, but 50 years in the future. Of course, american flags all over the victors.

    Pinot Gris is my new love. Thanks for this episode. Tonight I tried the Schoffit 2004 Tokay Pinot Gris Colmar – from Alsace. Very beautiful! Had it with hot dogs with the works. :)

    From my understanding, pinot blanc is a derivation of pinot gris (which itself is derived from pinot noir) – is this right? I had a pretty decent Alsatian pinot blanc the other day – not spectacular, but very pleasing. Very banana-ish on the nose. Classic grass/grapefruit/melonish. Good mouthfeel, evident alcohol content but the fruitiness balanced things out really well.

    And as a super-late answer to the QOD – PIRATE SHIPS AND NINJA TURTLES, duh.

    It looks like youre starting to get loopy, Gary. Im going to guess by the time I get the the final of this marathon of tapings youre going to be….. well youx10. No, its a good thing. I like your energy. QOTD: Everything. All of it of poor quality. Lots of 3-d boxes and stick figures. I drew Bill D. Catt a lot as well….. Dont be dissing Bloom County.
