Primitive Girl
Interesting collection of several women's photography, essay, kink, erotica, design, conversation, autobiography, poetry, philosophy, what have you.

The Angus Diet. Burger King is famous for its Subservient Chicken "viral" marketing campaign. But their advertisements for the new Angus Burger up the ante, with a 139 page advertisement ("book") which you can download or even apparently purchase as an actual hardcover. more inside

Mystery o' the day: Any guess as to what this is, its meaning, or who created it? (Roll your mouse over the images.) It's all the talk of Washington today. Several large ads for it in the WashPost. Some kind of political marketing ploy, but for what?
