What if Ashcroft turns on his TV? Hey - I have a great idea for a reality show: take six undocumented immigrants, and make them do Fear-Factor style tricks for a chance at a green card! Oh, the laughs we could have at their expense! But oops! As they say over at the halfbakery, that's not half-baked; it's already been baked: it's a real show, called Gana la Verde. more inside

Primitive Girl
Interesting collection of several women's photography, essay, kink, erotica, design, conversation, autobiography, poetry, philosophy, what have you. A more thoughtful and infinitely less cheesecake-y Suicide Girls for all you tormented Emo-boys. Front page is SFW, but I wouldn't look around any if the boss is nearby.
