The Heritage of the Great War is dedicated to the events and consequences of World War One. We put some emphasis on unorthodox and thought-provoking points of view. We are averse to historicism and military fetishism. And we show people rather than strategic plans or statistics. To this end this website features one of the most extensive and explicit WW-1 photo collections on the Internet. [nsfw]
Curious George: I'm running iChat on OSX. For some reason, it automatically adds to my buddy list anyone who IMs me. This is really irritating. How do I fix it?
Meet Marla Olmstead, painter. Her work has been compared Pollack and Kandinsky; she has sold $40,000 worth of paintings and has only been at it for three years. Did I mention she's four years old? Click here to see some of her work. Here's her home page. Makes me think of that kid with MS who wrote all that bogus shitty poetry and made his parents wealthier.

Terry Pratchett archive - this show is now closed, but this is at least a little taste of what was there. Now I just have to think of some spurious yet essential research to give me an excuse to go play in the new Colin Smythe - Terry Pratchett archive.

Australia has some of the best politicians money can buy. Actually, I don't know what changed hands. But read it and weep. Registration may be required though, so I've grabbed a few of the choicer lines, see below the fold. more inside
"As god as my witness, I thought Turkeys could fly" [wav] The infamous words of Arthur Carlson, station manager of WKRP in Cincinnati. Possibly the best comedy ever to be put on the small screen, never having jumped the shark. It is available on VHS however the original music used in the episodes, which was current hit songs at the time, was removed and replaced with muzzak in order to avoid the huge licensing fees. The results are some very mangled episodes.
Scott Muni, New York radio legend, died this week at the age of 74. I comtemplated whether I should post this because I'm not clear as to how many monkeys are familiar with him. Scott Muni was a very popular AM disc jockey in the 50s and 60s in New York. In 1967 he made a successful leap to FM radio, devoting himself to free form radio, which became AOR ("album oriented rock", today known more or less as "classic rock"). In those days, radio stations relied more on disc jockeys to create their playlists, and a popular jock could make or break a performer. Scott was one of those jocks. In January of this year he had a major stroke, which put him out of commission. more inside
