From an FT thread: an amazing sidewalk artist.
Link from electricland: The true tale of a brave action figure behind enemy lines. "19 January 2005: The Slinky betrayed us. I should have known. I never trusted him. He was an unstable character, always going back and forth, back and forth, never showing a shred of backbone. 'Come, senor, I know the way to the insurgents' headquarters,' he rasped. The fact that he was an Arab toy speaking with a stereotypical Spanish accent should have tipped me off. But hindsight is always 20/20. Literally. I can turn my head 360 degrees."

Craig Parker on slash: "At least one of us is having an exciting Friday night."
Costume fans represent! The 2005 Hollywood exhibit is open at FIDM.
Brokeback Mountain trailer caps! Not the smut you're looking for, though. Woe.
Meme du jour:
1) Pick a song that you love that you want me to forever associate with you.
2) Upload it on yousendit.com/your domain (or, if you're unable to do so, you can skip this step).
3) Comment with the link (or tell me which song, and I can try to find it myself).
4) Post this in your journal so you can make a mix that reminds you of the people that you love/like the most in the entire world.
I'm going to add a step here and ask--is there a song you particularly associate me with? I mean, it'd be cool if it were a totally random song. Of course, knowing me and my journal, it's probably going to be one of the many, many songs I've told y'all about having embarrassing fixations on. "You'll always be that awful Samantha Fox song to me, Cleo!"
