Seasonal Gifts for the Devout

In the spirit of the season, how about making up a gift list?

My favorite? This! He even appears to have noodly appendages on the sides of his head. Available from http://www.mcphee.com/

Dean Koontz

I've gone a bit off Koontz lately. His last few novels seem to be ultra right-wing, right-to-life screeds; the one I just finished ( The Husband ) was scathing toward Atheists/Humanists. I'm a Buddhist myself, but some of my best friends... I still like some of his earlier stuff, Twilight Eyes and W...

Cows

What's wrong with Serbian cows??


The Serbian high command stashed their money in Swiss banks during the Bosnian conflict, just as the Nazis had done earlier (and - one suspects - anyone who fears being sought as a war criminal still does)

Cow theory

Swiss Corporation

- You have 42,000 cows
- None of them actually belongs to you
- You have no, repeat, NO Nazi cows..or Serbian cows...or Iraqi cows...

Another fun thing to do with Google

A friend and I both discovered this game independently: type in two of the most bizarre, unrelated words you can think of. Chances are someone, somewhere has devoted a web site to them. "Electric Lotus" got me a vegan restaurant in Los Angeles and a tattoo parlor in New Jersey. And there r...

How many dogs...

How many dogs does it take to change a lightbulb? Border Collie: Just one. Then I'll replace any wiring that's not up to code. Rottweiler: Make me! German Shepherd: I'll change it as soon as I've led these people from the dark, check to make sure I haven't missed any, and make just one more perimete...

Light Bulb Jokes

I know they're corny, but I just heard one I couldn't resist: Q: How many Bush Administration officials does it take to screw in a light bulb? A: None. There is nothing wrong with the light bulb; it's conditions are improving every day. Any reports of its lack of incandescence are delusional spin fr...

Micro-mini Pirate Ship

I found this Website about an artist called Willard Wigan who carves microscope sculptures. Here's a (pirate?) ship on the point of a pin http://www.willard-wigan.com/shop/images/Gold%20ship%20mount.JPG My thought on viewing his work is "how does he do that? http://www.willard-wigan.com/index.h...

The Bed Sitting Room

I haven't seen The Bed Sitting Room in over thirty years, but some memorable scenes are still in my mind: The wedding scene, in which when asked to read from "The Good Book", the preacher begins to read one of the steamier scenes from Lady Chatterly's Lover The police car which hangs from ...

The Traveller

I recommend: *The Traveller* by John Twelve Hawks. Strange but compelling novel - sort of like Quentin Taratino meets The Matrix. There's little sex, but graphic violence. There's also a kick-butt woman Ninja. *Anansi Boys* and *American Gods* by Neil Gaiman. Very funny books about the nature of rea...

The Bed Sitting Room

A bizarre film by Richard Lester (yup, same guy who made "A Hard Day's Night") from 1969: The Bed Sitting Room. Here's the plot summary from: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0064074/plotsummary The film begins with the BBC (Frank Thornton) telling us through the facade of an old television tha...

It made a lot more sense in French

This illustrates the perils of automatic translation programs, but it still looks like a pretty good recipe - and suitable for vegans, too. If you want the original, go to http://jcizzo.com/article.php3?id_article=63 The aubergine tian For 6 people - Ingredients: 4 Aubergines, 2 zucchinis, 4 beautif...

There are some great "de-motivational" posters at http://www.despair.com/ that these remind me of. My favorite:

OMFSM! I've found a culinary atrocity worse than any my late Granny tried to inflict on me. Here: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/10/18/world/europe/18lunch.html?ref=health he was enjoying a north of England specialty known as a chip butty: a French-fries-and-butter sandwich doused in vinegar It's enoug...
