Curious, George: Help me dress my husband, please? Mr. MonkeyToes has decided that he needs more flair in his professional wardrobe. Any recommendations for books on clothing for men? Ideal book leans toward the classic and conservative, and has color illustrations. Though I recall a thread on this topic on Metafilter, my MeFi-fu turned up nothing, and Amazon offers too much choice. What book has helped you or your guy become a spiffier dresser?
Finally a reason for pop up ads: Humor. This is just ridiculous. If I ever see someone with this phone (considering Pink is the new "Ghetto Black," it could very well be a man), I will personally slap the crap out of them.*
*Disclaimer: Unless they're bigger than me (via the internets, found while surfing for a Halo 2 buddy icon)
OOOK, so who wants to put this live-wire to their forehead? it'll help you remember better...I promise. (I can see it now: Monkeys the world over walking around with electrodes on their foreheads to promote memory and prevent double posting)
Curious George: Go, my seeker monkeys! Fly! I'm looking for a site I saw on Metafilter ages ago. It was some art project, where some Spanish (I think he was Spanish) guy took loads of headshots of people in different social groups. I've searched and searched but I can't find it. If anyone could help me out, I'd <3 them forever. more inside

Army Spc. Bryan Freeman Jr was killed Monday in Iraq. Bryan was the 1,334 US soldier killed in Iraq. Bryan was a very good friend of my wife in High School and needless to say she was very upset. Normally I would not post such a downer of a link but I feel that in general many of these soldiers that have been killed lately have not been getting the attention they deserve. RIP Bryan.

"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." [Oscar Wilde]. For your night-skying pleasure: Free monthly skymaps at (of course) SkyMaps; local satellite and spaceship activity at Heaven's Above; and my favorite, what's in the sky tonight at Earth & Sky. Great resources for the backyard stargazer.
The Ouch Kit. Marriage counseling in a box! "It's simple. You get a strong feeling and fill out the back of whichever card suits your mood. Next, you leave the card where your partner is sure to find it. Then your partner responds with another card -- whichever one feels right. Keep exchanging cards until you are both feeling better."

Things you hear in passing can definitely pique your curiosity. We hear the most interesting things in the most everyday places--maybe on the tube or out in the city.

Much more than cosplay, Sailor Moon worship and sleeping commuters... From ripping out ATM machines with bulldozers to the changing of the guard in anime to decline in the craft of making sake, Sake-Drenched Postcards' mysterious Captain Japan writes about the stranger and deeper side of Japanese culture with a dry, crisp journalist's touch, like an eastern Theroux.
Dirty Found: Found Magazine gets all kinds of flotsam and jetsam and publishes it- notes, photographs, and, for lack of a better term, whatnot. Sometimes, people send in things that are a little too raunchy for the magazine. Thus, Dirty Found, in bookstores near you.
