The site Secrecy Kills is temporarily shut down due to threats of possible Federal prosecution if they release their scheduled investigative podcast as intended. So, in the meantime let's all watch their interview with Richard Clarke about 9/11 intelligence failures, since we can't watch the full "Who is Rich Blee" as planned. More links to related interviews and stories here.
Seems pretty cool so far, I particularly like having my Wordpress blog up there... it's quite dusty, but still getting 100+ views a day. Nice to dust it off. Now, to upgrade this feed to a blog ;)
New meme: here's a totally random way to make your new random band's new random album cover. Post one!
"I never intend to adjust myself to economic conditions that will take necessities from the many to give luxuries to the few, and leave millions of God’s children smothering in an air-tight cage of poverty in the midst of an affluent society."
The age-old battle between cats and boxes has been traditionally somewhat lopsided.
They may have miscalculated the day on which the Mayan Calendar (and perhaps the world as we know it) ends; it might be tonight, not two years from now! So, in celebration of an astrologically powerful total lunar eclipse on the solstice and the release in the near future of my divination website, I'm sharing a preview of some of the predictions/connections which my website will facilitate. Provided, of course, that the world doesn't end before I get it up and running! Hat tips to sacred texts for Tarot interpretations and hey, what's that for rising stars at eclipse totality in different locations. The words for each location are calculated using numerology and sacred texts.
Who let the Logs out!? Wikileaks drops 400,000 classified documents shedding new light on the Iraq war — the biggest leak of classified military documents in history — sending shockwaves across the Fourth Estate. Rap News marks the occasion by inviting into the studio the former US Secretary of Offense, Donald Rumsfeld. But what starts out as a conventional Rap News interview soon descends into mayhem as the live feed is hijacked by News World Order, eager to spin the record like a disc jockey on crack.

William Trubridge set a new world record by diving to a depth of 100 meters. He was underwater for 4 minutes and 10 seconds on a single breath of air in order to accomplish this remarkable feat. His charitable cause of choice is to bring awareness to the plight of Hector's Dolphins.
In 1969, a 14-year-old Beatle fanatic named Jerry Levitan, armed with a reel-to-reel tape deck, snuck into John Lennon's hotel room in Toronto and convinced John to do an interview about peace. 38 years later, Jerry has produced a film about it. Using the interview as a soundtrack, director Josh Raskin merges the work of James Braithwaite with digital illustration by Alex Kurina. (watch full screen)
Rolling Stone is publishing in its entirety John Lennon's final interview for the first time to mark the 30th anniversary of his death. Featured on their site are links to a free iTunes podcast of the interview tapes, videos, an exeprt from a new documentary which airs tonight, pictures and more. (( ojo ))
How do you make what is arguably the greatest swordfight scene of the last 25 years (at least) even better? Add lightsabers. Only one problem -- two different internet artists have taken on the task and it still doesn't quite cover all the fighting. Very, very close, though! Thanks to topless robot & Gamma Squad for the initial tip on part 1. [Have you seen better versions? Add yours below!]
Facebook wants to stop child abuse by having people change their profile pics to their favorite cartoon character. I figure if we all use Pedonald Duck, the outrage spawned by it will help end child abuse even sooner!
Coed magazine's 50 most popular women on the web article is getting some buzz these days due to the inclusion of Justin Bieber @ #7 on the list. Since rule #34 is no doubt in effect for all of them, I figured I'd just Google Image w/o safe search the top ten names and save you the trouble. Your one stop porn shop.
A steal and a winning halfcourt shot at the buzzer. Baker beats Kansas Wesleyan, but nothing beats a shot like that!
Back before Sean Connery became Bond, he posed (mostly nude) for artists and was #3 in the Mr. Universe contest. Now, a previously unseen painting and sketches of Sean in his prime have been found. In celebration, here are some images of him in various states of undress (Andress?) over 5 decades. SFW, unfortunately.
