Clan MacDonald of Keppoch has a new chief at last. Not everyone is happy. MacDonald of Keppoch, aka MacDonnell, aka Ranald of Lochaber, is not to be confused with the larger Clan MacDonald, of which it is one branch.

The late Syd Barrett's colourfully-decorated home is up for sale. According to the estate agent, the home "provides an excellent opportunity for sympathetic improvement and updating".
The New Naysayers. A look at the atheism of Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett, and Richard Dawkins. Plus, a nifty list of famous atheists, agnostics, and other skeptics.
NewsFilter: Montreal Shootings. Details still sketchy, but it seems two gunmen killed four and injured another 12 at Montreal's Dawson College, in an attack which recalls some painful memories for the city.

Monkey See, Monkey Do, Monkey Dream of you! Curious George: ever dream of a fellow simian? I have never met him, nor have I ever seen him. But last night I had a funny dream of our best Pete ever. To continue today's Curious George theme... more inside
Curious Ramblin' George: help name my rocketship In five short weeks I'll be rolling down my driveway for a road trip of unknown duration and no specific destination (though I have a few general time/space coordinates plotted). This spring I picked up my new home on wheels, a 36-foot trailer made in 1951 by the Spartan Aircraft Co. A rig like this deserves a name, but I'm having trouble coming up with something that fits. A little Heinlien, a little Jules Verne, a little Homer (not necessarily Simpson). I'd sure love to hear your suggestions. more inside

Official Seal Generator. Christmas came early again. Now go and play.
WordHoard. A philological tool. The WordHoard project is named after an Old English phrase for the verbal treasure 'unlocked' by a wise speaker. It applies to highly canonical literary texts the insights and techniques of corpus linguistics, that is to say, the empirical and computer-assisted study of large bodies of written texts or transcribed speech.
Cut 'em out and fold 'em up in all of their intricate glory. Those who can be trusted with scissors can make The Globe Theater, the Taj Mahal, or the crazily complex 3-page Mississippi Riverboat (Warning, sappy e-cards also thrown in.) more inside

Curious George: Love Advice So, we've all been in love, all have relationships. Some good, some bad. And most of us have needed advice at some point or another. What general relationship advice can you offer to your fellow monkies? more inside
Look and Learn This may only appeal to British Mofites aged 45 - 55 (which probably = me), but thousands of images from 'Look and Learn' are accessible here. Unfortunately IPC has retained the rights to the Trigan Empire, the bit people actually wanted to read. more inside

Microsite at the V&A to accompany their upcoming Leonardo da Vinci exhibition. Jolly nice, if I say so myself.
"I don't think so..." Remember the Numa Numa song? Well, there's a sequel that's just been released, featuring Gary Brolsma himself. The verdict, courtesy of CollegeHumor.com: "Big budget sequels lacking the charm of the original aren't just for Hollywood anymore."
Curious George: Media Coverage of 9/11 Although 24% of those who died in the World Trade Center on 9/11 were not white, with all the news coverage the 5th anniversary of the events, I've yet to see anyone but white people interviewed. So is this poor reporting or have I just not been paying attention? Have you seen anyone but white family members interviewed?
Average Homeboy Awesome rap action.
