You know, after paring away all the massively outdated links (most of them relating to Cheney), I realized... I really didn't have all that much linkspam backed up after all. Huh. I did update dailydigestnews with some good stuff, however.

A (form) letter I just got from Common Cause--remember the Net Neutrality thing I linked to, like, twice? Yeah. It's worse than we suspected. Collapse )

Lost follow-up: Lost Media won't have screencaps up for a few days so I have nothing new to link to, but you may have noticed that Collapse )

First there were Freedom Fries... now there are Roses of the Prophet Muhammad.

Scott Stapp and Kid Rock Sex Tape surfaces from the depths of hell.

Uwe Boll to Retire from Video Game Movie-Making. Because Germany closed that tax loop God felt like he had to make it up to us for that sex tape, somehow.

Willie Nelson Releases Gay Cowboy Song. Oh, Willie, you trend-whore, you.

The Valley Girl URL Translator. The really funny thing to do is go plug the BPAL "Maelstrom"/Poe scents page into the translator:

"The Amontillado!" I said.

"He! Like, oh my gawd! he! Like, oh my gawd! he!—he! Like, oh my gawd! he! Like, oh my gawd! he!—yes, the Amontillado. But is totally it not getting late? Like, I am so sure! Will not they be awaiting us at the palazzo, the Lady Fortunato and the rest? Like, I am so sure! Let us be gone."

"Uh huh, uh huh, right," I said "let us be gone."

"For the love of Gawd, Montresor!"

"Uh huh, uh huh, right," I said, "for the love of Gawd!"
EEEEE! Here's the Avalon-series pendant I commissioned from Wearable Sculpture (actual size). It's the tower of Condwiramurs. The hit of the series so far seems to be akathorne's Isle of Avalon pendant, although I am also partial to this Lady of the Lake bracelet. (No, you can't tell what the theme of each piece is just by looking at the album. I only know those because I know the items' owners.)

Paris Exhibit Examines Picasso and Maar. I always liked his portraits of Dora Maar, and that whole period of his.

Greek Hiker Finds 6,500-Year-Old Pendant.

Cornwell to Help Solve Hunley Mystery. Oh, you mean the way she "solved" the Jack the Ripper case? ("Ripperologists and other critics of her theory point out that most, if not all, of the Ripper letters are considered hoaxes by all other authorities, so trying to prove that Sickert wrote one or more of them doesn't prove that he killed anyone.")

Tom Cruise rocks out at Kanye West concert. Plus: Paris Hilton proclaims own album to be 'hot.' Somehow, this is not the title of an article at The Onion.

Someone at Paramount is harassing Fark?
