Overnight Open Thread (Mætenloch)

Welcome to Sunday all M&Ms. Tonight's ONT has no theme (as much as there ever is a coherent theme) - just a collection of things I've been meaning to post but never got around to it.

Dog Lingerie
Because sometimes even Fido and FiFi like to feel sexy. Well actually they're just helpless victims of their cruel owners. And yes there are entire factories in China devoted to making this stuff.


How D&D is the gateway drug to all kinds of nerdiness.
Pretty much as I always suspected. And sadly I think I've passed through pretty much every box except for the upper right and furry-related ones.

The National Anthem Performed on a Vietnamese Dan Bau
As inspired by Jimi Hendrix. The player, Nhut Bui, came to the US from Vietnam in 1989 and is now an engineer at IBM.

Ghost Towns of California
I've actually been to some of these and the backgrounds are just as picturesque as they look.


Normandy: D-Day versus Today
Same locations 65 years later.

Celebrity Death Watch:
Barbara Billingsley (93), Eli Wallach (93), and Abe Vigoda (88 y.o.) are all still alive. And Happy Birthday to Dawn Wells and Mike Ditka.
