Cleaning Out My Bookmarks = Leftovers For You

Leigh and I will be out of town for a few days. We’re going to Beaumont to finalize some wedding reception plans. So, I thought now would be a great time to post some leftovers. Let’s start with some videos shall we? Ever hear of a crotch-biting dog? Neither had I, until I watched this […]

Christopher Walken and Edgar Poe

Go here for an mp3 of Christopher Walken reading “The Raven.” Walken scares the hell out of me just being “normal,” much less reading Edgar Allan Poe. Listening to this in the dark at 3:00 A.M. is a real treat.

Tokyo Watermelons

I imagine people here in the States would scream bloody murder at the genetic manipulation required to make a melon look like this.

I’ve linked to Google’s mapping ability before, but I found this website, which conveniently lists many interesting locations you can find using Google. I was particularly taken with the images on the weirdness page.

After reading this open letter to the Kansas State Board of Education, I think I may have been swayed to the Intelligent Design side. In fact, I know I have.

True enough. My only thought on […]

Jesus Crossed the Rio Grande

I have no idea why, but this silly site called to mind the lyrics of Ian Moore’s “Muddy Jesus.” Anytime I see flip-flops I think of cold beer and large bodies of water (ocean, lake, pool, slip ‘n slide). I’m sure that’s not exactly the imagery those people are trying to elicit. UPDATE: I was […]

Comics 101

Marc Singer has composed a list of comics he feels are good “starter comics.” To make determining where you would like to begin your comic journey, Marc has divided the list into subcategories according to genre. While I don’t agree with all of his choices (I hate Akira, but that may well be a personal […]

Hollywood Woes

It seems like every publication that focuses on entertainment are bemoaning the soft ticket sales at theaters. I’ll link this article from CBS news, but really, pick up any entertainment magazine or turn on any show on E! and you’ll hear the same “sad” story. Hollywoodites complain the movie industry has entered the worst slump […]
