What is happening to me? "My name is Kirk Thomson. I am 31 years old, live in Brooklyn New York, and work at Reel Life video on Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg. In late September of 2004, I was attacked and bitten by what seemed to be a large animal of some kind. I don't know what is happening to me." The blog of a guy who was...uh, bitten by a werewolf, documenting the transformation process. Funny and very cleverly executed. Start from the bottom (October) and read-up (through December, if you want).

Asteroid coming close to earth on April 13, 2029. Merry Christmas everyone! Adding to the long list of things to be bummed about at holiday time, including war, famine, your mother in law, the rise of Paris Hilton, and the world running out of oil...now there's another thing to worry about for the next 25 years: a possible asteroid collision with earth. Asteroid 2004 MN4 is rated a 4 on the Torino Scale, evidently the first time in history that an asteroid has been rated higher than 1. But don't worry too much, chances are still 60 to 1 it won't hit. (Down from just 300 to 1 yesterday.)

Friday Flash Fun Most monkeys I'm sure remember Billy Joel's hit song "We Didn't Start The Fire" - it looks like someone's found images to go along with the words. [Flash - duh]
Birds do it... In South Africa, the Johannesburg zoo is going to artificially inseminate a pair of lesbian wattled cranes to help propagate the endagered species. Since the cranes are hard-wired for monogamy, the zookeepers decided they needed "to optimize the breeding potential."
City of Socks DATANG, China - You probably have never heard of this factory town in coastal China, and there is no reason why you should have. But it fills your sock drawer. Datang produces an astounding nine billion pairs of socks each year - more than one set for every person on the planet. People here fondly call it Socks City, and its annual socks festival attracts 100,000 buyers from around the world. more inside

Musical George: Is there a site analogous to rottentomatoes.com, but for CDs? That is, is there a site that summarizes the body of reviews for a given record? Also, feel free to share any other excellent music reference resources.
Pulp Xmas - Ok, I'm probly gonna blow it here, but, fuck, I thought this was funny. Stole it from Boing Boing, which I hate usually because it is an assholish wankety shit-suck-me blog of ego heads with zero talent, but I still thought it funny aside from the poorly dubbed soundtrack. A mash up of Rankin-Bass Rudolf shit avec Pulp Fiction. It requires Quicktime y'all more inside
