In My Sites
Here are some of my favorite places to visit:
Two Jealous Perverts
Where did you get this crap, Taffy? From David and Suzu, a couple of John Waters fans from Canada. Knit your way to glamour with Suzu's vintage knitting patterns!
The People's Photos
An incredible archive of found photos, beautifully categorized. I can't get enough of this stuff.
Lonely, horny men who have nothing to do all day but lift weights, and they know how to do laundry. Where do I sign?
Ookworld: Observing Obscure Kulture
Interesting, well written articles, phunny comics, noisy music, and one of the best links list I've ever seen. It's m.ace's Ookworld.
Recipes, advice, sins, naked ladies, and a very long dick list. Everything the modern housewife needs to get her through her hectic day.
Domenic's Accordion Beatles Page
Three of my favorite things: Accordions, the Beatles, and boys named Domenic.
The Town Managers' Town Page
It's Frick, Rick, and Jonk, and they all live in the same house, just like the Monkees (or the Manson Family!). They're an awesome (and I never use that word) punk rock band from Philly. Hey, hey, they're the Town Managers.
This American Life
This site contains RealAudio files of my favorite radio show, "This American Life". I've got a huge crush on the host, Ira Glass. I don't even know what he looks like. He's so sensitive! Don't tell my husband.
The Gallery of the Absurd
A collection of weird-- but real-- advertisements, labels and signs. If you have a printer, it's a good source for tape covers. Also includes the very funny "Annoying J.Crew Model of the Week".
The Death Clock
Feeling morbid? Then slink on over to The Death Clock-- a happy little reminder that time is slipping away, second by second (big scary laugh). But don't stay too long! You don't have much time left, do you? (bigger, scarier laugh).
Forensic Entomology International
A very informative page on the fascinating and creepy field of forensic entomology. For those with strong stomachs and a love of weird science. Blowflies, maggots and carrion beetles, oh my!
Inflatable Animals Fetish Page
This is weird. Really weird. But what do you expect from Fran? Really, I had no idea that people were into this! You learn something new and disgusting every day.
The KnitList Home Page
The companion site to the popular knitting e-mail list. These people are serious-- I've seen flame wars erupt over cast-on methods. A great resource for knitters.
Dan's Screen Shot Movie Quiz
Test your movie knowledge with this weekly film quiz. Figure out the four films, and at the end of the week, you get a degree. I usually can get at least one guess correct (an Associate's Degree), and one time I even got a PhD (all four guesses)! But that was the Halloween quiz, of course. Try it!
Internet Movie Database
If you want to cheat on your movie quiz, go directly to this site. An indispensible movie information archive with great ways to search.
Mamie Van Doren
"The First Authentic Sex Kitten in Cyberspace" She still looks amazing in a see- through dress, even at 65-- but as she says, "reports of my age have been greatly exaggerated." She's one of my idols.
Big Mess Orchestra
It's my life. It's my wife. No, it's not, but it's my band. I play accordion with the Big Mess Orchestra. Listen to our sound clips!
Home of Nixon's Head, the newly re-formed great garage/pop/punk band. Read their hilarious newsletter, Headline.
The Crown Bar, Belfast
It's a tourist trap in downtown Belfast, but it's a tourist trap with a webcam. If you look closely, you might spot my good friend, Robert McClay, sinking a pint at the bar.
It's the language of love. Or, as Enzo Sestito used to say to me, "Ees lahngwash ahf lahf."
