I was thinking that you were quoting two different portions of the same movie's description and that cannibalism was the means to overcome trauma. Opening links is often disappointing.

Hey gang! Let's debate the important and controversial issues of a) whether Ashley is a sissy name for a boy, the terrifying Gable/Campbell juggernaut be damned and b) how rape is terrible because it makes your girlfriend/some hot stranger not like you.

Garage is a very romantic fragrance, which will most probably be liked by men as it evokes childhood memories of garage, father's car, various interesting tools that smell 'manly' just as a boy can perceive. It is a romantic boyish smell connected to the dream of becoming a man.

I dunno, still doesn't sound that manly. I'm holding out for Car-Hold.

Doesn't one of these things play a role in some DeLillo book? (Underworld, I think. The artist who had an affair with the protagonist was involved in a giant art project in the Southwest with cars or planes or something.)

neb, you really should come to LA and visit the luckyscent scent bar. They have many of the CdGs and the Etat Libres and the export range Serge Lutenses. I think they have Christopher Brosius, but I'm not sure. Also, the woman who works there is super nice and helpful -- you can sit and dawdle as long as you like. Aedes in NY is similar, but it's dark and fusty as opposed to clean and brightly lit, which is points in favor of luckyscent I think. You can also order samples to be sent, but at 3-4 a pop that gets spendy fast. (Although I like luckyscent very much and feel that I owe them my perfume dollars I prefer to buy my samples, when I do, elsewhere, since it's often cheaper to get samples from Aedes or beautyhabit or direct from the perfume company.)
