Ya'll were busy while I was gone!
Some links pulled from my catch-up on LJ (which only lets you go 975 posts back, which was only 3 posts more than I what I missed). Got it down to 625 posts by Sunday night. Then I missed a couple days. I'm sure I read well in excess of 1,000 posts.
Anyway, this is good stuff! But there's a lot of it, so...

I really liked the billboards on the Girl Genius pages, and what's more, is they feel appropriate in the context of the rest of the comic. Very well done.
Matzoh Man, is, as far as I'm aware, originally done by Gefilte Joe and the Fish. (The album I have from them, from the early 80's is a translucent blue Star of David shaped thing. Fun to watch on a turntable.) They don't sound like that version though, as they're the "only senior citizen Jewish rock band" as they say on their record.
