HO HO!


I just had an incredibly funny IM conversation in which I was incredibly witty and he put it up on his page! He does not know who I am, which is even funnier. Also funny, he omitted a part in which I claimed to know him "in the biblical sense." (Oh ho, look, I am so funny that I make jokes about SEX. Can you believe that? Who could be so funny that they would make jokes about sex? I am that funny!)

BAGPUSS!


I used to watch this on Nickelodeon, they put little episodes of it into Pinwheel. I remember vividly the episode where the mice convince the woodpecker that the little mill they are using actually makes chocolate biscuits, as well as the Hamish episode. THis was very good British kids tv, very imaginative, with really good folk music. There is lots of Bagpuss love on the internet. I also found the Bagpuss FAQ for all of your urgent Bagpuss questions. (HAHA!! It is called "Bagpuss". That is just the best name ever.) Also, what is neat is that they have lyrics and sheet music to one of the best songs on a kids tv show ever, THe Seasons Song! I used to sing this to myself all the time (and as a child i could not carry a tune in a bucket so I will not get into the supreme torture this was for my parents), and I never thought I would see or hear it again, but here it is! Also they are selling a CD of the music from the show. Maybe I should buy it.

Amanda Please TV Show Homage Page


I just found this. It has something to do with a show on NIckelodeon called Girl's Room. At first I thought some strange 12 year old really had made this, but then I realized, no, Nickelodeon did (which makes it 10x less fun). But it is very clever.

Mysterious Cities of Gold


I watched this on Nickelodeon in the mid-late 80's, back when they bought all their shows from Europe, Canada, and Japan, which mean that the shows were actually GOOD. Okay, so I like the angry beavers one, and Ren and Stimpy, blah blah blah, but All That COMEON that is some horrible tv. Although, Jhonen Vasquez is supposedly creating a new show for them, HOT DAMN!! I will be watchin that, if my measly pittance of a salary allows me cable. OOPS anyway this show i found out from this site is actually French, and it is a great miniseries of a cartoon! I remember it was really beautiful, and entertaining, and the theme song still haunts my head to this day. So it delights me to no end that they have real audio of theme! I WILL LISTEN TO IT FOREVER!!!

Welcome to Kids TV!!!


Ohh! I should probably archive all of those last entries but that means then that I would have to design a new layout for the archive page. Damnit, but I am too lazy. So here is a fun page, look, it is all about a British person's favorite kids tv shows, but there are so many, I cannot believe he watched all of them. It would be fun to send him fake tv shows, like "Flufferteesnickens", a story about a fluffy wildebeast that traverses the antarctic in search of adventure. Notably included is a horribly short summary of the greatest cartoon "Belle and Sebastian", but notably missing are "Hattie Town" and "Pinwheel".

UMJAMMER LAMMY LIVE!!!


I really wish I could have gone to this, the game is just the best. I was really surprised at how good the music is for it, and the cartoons and storyline are just so bizarre and entertaining! (There is a parade of bunny mothers-to-be at one point, singing with bunny fathers-to-be about their respective duties, which is just so surreal and strange, it's perfect). Oh, and here is the official Lammy site, if you're interested.

Scurvy


No pirate link set is complete without a page on scurvy. Of course, I can't *&@#!&!%$#*&$%!# find any page with horrible pictures of scurvy ridden mutated babies!! SOOO here is a little scurvy quiz to take. On a related note, I get continually scared that I am going to develop scurvy while at college, due to the fact that my diet is summed up in one word: beige. You don't get vitamin C from any beige foods, no siree. So then I start eating the horribly rotten raw spinach, and maybe an orange, and then I am assured that my gums won't get diseased and my teeth won't fall out. Of course, I don't think that's what scurvy actually does to you, but having my teeth fall out is definitely something that would be horrible, and therefore that induces me to eat right. So don't knock it buddy!!!

Piratey Sayings


Now this was what I was looking for, piratey phrases to brighten all of my gloomy grey days, especially those which fall on my radio show days, wherein I forget all the piratey sayings that my mother taught me. This is not a vast collection, but it earns my admiration for the survey on your favorite piratey phrase. I like the one about the Mizzenmasts. Mad props to you, Adam me boy!!!

PIRATE IMAGES! I'm a landlubber! WEEEEE


YAR MATEY!!! Pirates are the best. My friend Erika and I have a radio show this semester called "Argh...Pirate Radio." It is not, as we have had to explain to many, a pirate radio show, but a Pirate radio show, a radio show where we pretend to be pirates! I am Captain Swarthy, and she is Scurvy the Parrot. It is infinitely amusing. But only for the first 10 minutes. THen we inevitably become sleepy, and hungry, and we lose our piratey accents. So I decided to look for some pirate web pages, and found this image archive. It is just so great! There are pictures of: pirates riding monks, a pirate forcefeeding another pirate a human heart, a pirate attempting to get his freak on with a local lady, and everyone's favorite piratey activity, walking the plank! What is also good, is how the best section is called "Pirate Fun". All in all, a fun read. A+

Toasters


Today I was tipped off by my sister about a new line of Hello Kitty products, Hello Kitty appliances! I was searching for some info and found this page, for a whole museum about toasters! Pretty neat. I wish I had found information about the Sanrio appliances though. Supposedly there is a Belgian waffle iron that makes kitty shaped waffles. CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT???? HURRAY!

Horrifying Mutated Infants


This is the best part of Rotten.com. I'm telling you, view this webpage at your tummy's own risk. These babies are freaked out, and may give you nightmares. BUT THAT'S WHAT IS SO MUCH FUN!!!

FIGHT CLUB...ROWR


Now lots don't seem to like this movie. I just saw it last night and I thought it was great, even the "insepid" "condescending" plot. Well, it was a bit conscending with the moral bit at the end I guess. But it was beautiful and created a whole vast idea of time and space in my mind, and even though the only females in the movie were there to be fucked or to be interested in fucking, I still liked it. Now, I await Dogma and Sleepy Hollow. GODDAMMIT BUT DO I LOVE MOVIES!!!!

Futurism: Proto-Punk?


One of my interests is art theory and philosophy, especially the Italian Futurists, who had an energy and lust for life that incites jealousy in my lazy ass. This is an interesting article comparing Futurism to punk, which is definitely something you think about when you read the Futurist Manifesto and such. This semester I am taking a class on 19th century German philosophy, and my final paper will compare Neitzsche to the Futurists. Not only is that extremely easy to do, but I am happy because both interest me. What a lucky girl I is.

JOTTOWORLD!!!


OOOOOPSS!!! I forgot to update this for a couple of days. Well I'll add a bunch of entries now to make up for it. This one, I am amazed that I forgot to link before. This is a link to the homepage of one of my absolute favorite artists and children's book illustrators, J. Otto Seibold (and partner, Vivan Walsh). Yes I am sure most of you have visited this site before. I just wanted to point out this, the greatest poster ever that I ordered a couple of days ago!!! I will salivate continously with a mixture of anticipation and complete infatuation until it arrives, probably in a couple of weeks. Please Lord, don't let me dehydrate completely.

Hairdos and don'ts!


Yesterday I learned all about how to get my hair cut from this site. Actually, I didn't, cause I have problems deciding what my head shape actually is. Oval or rectangular, I don't know. I feel like if I pick oval, I am only fooling myself, cause that is the ideal head shape you know, but I really do think it is actually oval. Then that would be great, because for once in my life I would actually be ideal. Now, this site did not help me to answer my question of getting those tiny bangs or not. Tiny bangs wearers, please write to me and tell me if they are superly annoying! I don't think I care anymore if they would look all ugly on my head either. Because what is ugly and what is beautiful? It is all constructs of society. Except, dude, that mole of yours really IS pretty weird.

TUB FULL O HOTTIE


I decided to be a crazed moron and link up another of my unconsumatable crushes. I just saw Summer of Sam this last weekend, and I must say that Adrien Brody was a sleepy-eyed tasty little punk rock morsel. Other than that, the movie was pretty good, too, aside from that dog part (you know what I mean). What was disturbing was how much John Leguiziamo resembled my ex-boyfriend in many parts.

Jhonen Vasquez


I have a huge and unconsumatable crush on this man. You know that crazed fan girl in issue 4 of Squee? THAT IS MEEEE! (without the gothy good looks)

Akutenshi


I forgot to put this site after the thumbsucking site, cause I found this site from there. I can't tell if this person is a transvestite or not (and I hope he or she doesn't read this entry cause that would be devastating and I don't want to be mean or anything). But actually the best part of the site are the rap songs of The Miko (so she fancies herself). I recommend "the sound of your future hitting you in the face." Be wary, her songs talk a lot about ass-kicking.

Interview with Wesley Willis


I love scitzophrenic artists. This interview is the absolute best ever. I recently saw Wesley in NYC and he was much larger and stranger than any photo of him had prepared me for, and he was also very angry because his rock'n'roll show was delayed for an hour while they attempted to find a chord to plug in his keyboard. Most of his songs that night were therefore about sucking animal's asses. Another time when I saw Wesley I saw a girl from high school at the show who we used to call elevenhead, cause if a normal forehead is just a four, then hers was so big it was an eleven. She went up on stage and Wesley headbutted her massive noggin. That was just the best night ever.

Mimi


I think I first discovered this girl's stuff when I was searching around for information on Bikini Kill a couple of years ago. It is a very good personal arty site. I give it ***** and a half

Real Dolls


I'm sure this has been linked by others before. But it is so strange that it merits another linking. I especially like the part in the little movie where it says "women...flesh and blood...or silicone and steel." I guess the ideal women just lays there and does nothing while getting madly bonked. IS THIS THE MESSAGE THAT THIS COMPANY IS SENDING OUT??? There is just so much more to say about this site, but I won't.

Thumbsucking Adults


I'm really not sure how I got to this site, only I was surfing the web, and just suddenly realized I was here. I was thinking to myself, why is thumbsucking so taboo? Sure it is sort of gross, and it means you probably get sick a lot cause you know you shouldn't put your fingers in your mouth all the time, and it looks sort of dumb. But then I realized, people suck their thumbs in replacement for their mother's teat. I think I will write an email to this site right now to inform them of this, and then maybe they will be so shocked and disgusted that they will stop. Well, actually, if they weren't stopped by this, then maybe they CAN'T be stopped.

Tweekitten


Some of the links here have just started not working. Very upsetting. They used to have great real audio sound clips, and a fun chatty room. I do love the twee music.

Purin!


"...everyone said, 'He looks just like a cup of delicious pudding!' I hope nobody's thinking of checking to see if I'm vanilla flavored or something..."
Yes, I am one of those Sanrio fans. I generally feel too mainstream buying Hello Kitty, Keroppi, or Pochacco toys (and let's not got into Hello Kitty Angel....ugh), but I do love Pom Pom Purin. I recently bought a tin for my art supplies with Purin on it, and while staring at it one day and basking in its cute glow (or getting iradiated, depending upon your view of twee), I noticed one panel where they drew a little asterik anus on Purin. Ha, ha. An asshole never looked cuter.

Henry Darger


Scitzophrenic artist from Chicago. This man wrote a 19,000 page novel, with over 100 illustrations, about a war between little slave girls and soldiers, as well as a 15,000 page autobiography. He's fascinating.

The Wiener Girls


I met one of these ladies a few months ago, and it took me about that long to find this web page...only because I forgot the "i before e" rule. "Weiner" looks right, doesn't it? Anyway, this page is pretty fun. Especially if you like erotic hot dogs.
