A fiery horse with the speed of light, a cloud of dust, and...

Clayton Moore (no relation) was born this day 95 years ago. I watched his TV show, The Lone Ranger, when I was very small and I loved it. The only decent male character on Daria, Mack, gets to play the Lone Ranger here. That's appropriate. I wonder if the remake of Wild, Wild West with Will Smith also had something to do with this alter ego. Go get 'em, kemo sabe.

The Gregorian Calendar was adopted on this day in 1752 by Great Britain. This was the first day of the new calendar, and it involved skipping a number of days abruptly. This point is of relevance to one Daria fanfic.

ALMOST FORGOT! Today is the fifth anniversary of Be Strong Stacy Day! Hooray! Thank you, Angelihel!

Remember to put your name on the sign-up list to get your DVD copy of Daria!

In the realm of Neat Stuff, Richard Lobinske has colorized one of MTV's early concept drawings of Trent Lane to show what he might have looked like. This would be a great alternate-universe Trent.

JPAGC has put out a detailed call for help with DariaWiki. Got some time? Know a lot about Daria? Go for it.

MDetector5 has prepared dessert for us: a slice of Quinn cheesecake.

Moar l8r.

Okay, it's l8r.

  • Reaped Out 2: Sickle Sad World, by Pinkminx (Part 6): The sputtering protests of a car engine as it ground to a halt on the opposite side of the road diverted Daria’s attention from the cracks in the pavement to the aging blue ‘73 Plymouth Satellite. She saw the driver’s fist connect with the steering wheel as she cursed out loud. “Stupid piece of crap,” Jane cried as she turned the key.
  • Reunions and Introductions, by Trscroggs (continued): “I was a little too mad to think about where I was hitting him and I did break his nose. The point is that he wasn’t entirely wrong.” “He wasn’t?” “No, he wasn’t,” Daria sighed, “Jane... three years ago, I was a stripper.”

Heh... slice, huh?

I'm still working on the entire cake, in between my other, um, projects.

You need to fix that link, as it has this site's URL inserted before it.

(Only 6% of such visitors go on to buy the magnificance of the "My So-Called Life" box set? Tsk tsk.)

"Magnificence." It's too early in the morning. ... Oh, and the "MSCL" box set has all the original music. Wonder if "Daria" fans will be anywhere near this lucky.

Ya know, if you accelerate a burning horse to the speed of light, there's going to be more than just a cloud of dust out there...

Erhm ... still not fixed — now the Blogger URL is also in front of it.
