'Cowboy Shampoo'...

I think I saw them play live at Toad's Place in New Haven, back in 88 or 89. Or maybe that was 'Rinse Rodeo'. So many years and brain cells ago... hard to be sure.

Cowboy Shampoo == clearly an anime title for a crazy homage to the neo-classic anime Cowboy Bebop.

(Actual anime title for a crazy homage to the neo-classic anime Rurouni Kenshin, was Samurai Champloo.)

I had a cowboy offer to take a shower with me once so he could show me his Cowboy Shampoo. Weird because it was just regular shampoo.  :idiot2:

  That's so weird.  It's like this Command (modern naval combat game) dream I had where my neighbor's cat told me his name was "Lonesome"

Pardon me,  I thought I clicked on the Ultimate Admiral thread!  Instead it's the "Brokeback Mountain" thread.

Was the old Age of Sail, Real Time or Turn Based? Been so long I don't remember. Have the CD around here somewhere! AOSII.

The old Age of Sail was kind of Piratey, and was in realtime. I've got AoS2 sitting in a shrink wrap within 2 feet of my computer chair at home.
