"It's About Oil" The popular single by Missoula, Montana folk singer Amy Martin. Enjoy.
The Real Ultimate Power!!!11!uno!!1! Facts: 1. Ninjas are mammals. 2. Ninjas fight ALL the time. 3. The purpose of the ninja is to flip out and kill people. Maybe that's why they're banned in Nebraska. more inside
Embalming & Mortuary Science: Thinking about a career in mortuary science or just curious? Perhaps most of us thinking that being a doctor would be a little gross. More so, a coroner or mortician. But I have a very caring daughter that is seriously fascinated by death and things medical, and I realized that "it takes all kinds" and I'm certainly glad there are people interested in providing these vital services...more links within. more inside
Transformus is a "burn" in the mountains of North Carolina -- basically a small version of "Burning Man". I'd love some monkey insight on what to bring, what to expect, etc. (First post, hi everybody!) more inside
Flogging Molly - A Guiness Soaked Musical Body Blow More of my favorite music I'd like to share with the Monkeys. Any other fans among you?
Be Top Banana of Monkey Civilization! Well, at least be really good at grooming. This is one of the sillier games I've seen since KoL--but it has monkeys! more inside
Bubble Gear handbags, totes and backpacks all contain, um, fish. Living, swimming fishies. Fish as fashion accessories: Is this idea cool or cruel?
eBay is running a pilot program for downloadable music. What will the RIAA think of this?
Pachinko Hoedown! See Nicholas Cage square(-dance) off against shiny robots (aliens?) in quirky Japanese TV commercials for Sankyu Co Pachinko parlors. Weird/Fun. Description of Pachinko inside, but I look forward to better information from our Monkey Agents in Japan. (Via Peter Payne and his "gaijin in Japan" updates.)
Darth Vader looks hot. Do you like the beach? Do you like Star Wars? If so, perhaps you will like this old Rolling Stone cover as well.
I'm a fly, and I can't get out of this fly-bottle... Is philosphy worthless? Maybe, but not more worthless than science. ArtsJournal> Somewhat related to this thread and this other one.
Today the Blue baboon mothership is 5. Happy Birthday Metafilter! Bananas to Matt and Mefi for (too) many hours of informative fun. Thanks for helping make Mofi possible. And thanks to #1 Monkeybashi for bravely picking up the torch. more inside
The NY Post has the Scoop! Best. Fark. Photoshop Contest. Ever.
Farenheit 9/11 Notes: Accusations, insinuations, linkage, dot-connections, outragities, documentzema, black-and-whitism, a pointed index finger, and - reportedly - the partridge in the pear tree. The refrences in the movie. Comment?

Compare: - The story of the upcoming movie "The Last Shot" (Flash, press 'Pre-production' to read the story line). - The reality of fiming "Ocean's Twelve" in Sicily.
The very name of Frenchman is become odious! What the Times said about the French Revolution (Read this ye ENGLISHMEN, with attention, and ardently pray that your happy Constitution may never be outraged by the despotic tyranny of Equalization!) Happily, it's a very different story this year.
She made it up.
Will Compasses Point South? "The collapse of the Earth's magnetic field, which both guards the planet and guides many of its creatures, appears to have started in earnest about 150 years ago. The field's strength has waned 10 to 15 percent, and the deterioration has accelerated of late, increasing debate over whether it portends a reversal of the lines of magnetic force that normally envelop the Earth."

I'm deeply embarrassed to admit, but after hearing a few tracks... well, I kinda like these guys. So here's a guilty pleasure for the truly perverse among you.
Federal Marriage Amendment Goes Down In Flames The Democrats in the Senate let the vote go to the floor so the Republicans can cut their throat with it. I agree with Billmon that "the damn thing was never anything more than a campaign stunt to whip up the bigot vote. Now that that's done, we can all move on. The only place this amendment is going to reappear will be in a Bush-Cheney 20-second spot - coming soon to the rural areas of a swing state near you."
