I had the good fortune to attend game three of the World Series at Yankee Stadium last night, so I took myself some pictures. It was a great game, but the crowd was very subdued. Maybe because many of them were stuck outside waiting to pass through the metal detectors while the national anthem was being sung and President Bush was throwing out the first pitch. I also had the good fortune to check out Monument Park before the game and to catch a glimpse of the Big Unit shagging some fly balls during batting practice. Go Yanks!!!

Check out retroCRUSH for a page worth of the worst halloween costumes ever, including Vicki the robot from Small Wonder and Easy Reader from the Electric Company.
I've never gone to a concert with the intention of taping the show, but if I ever did, I'd be sure to consult this Bands That Allow Taping website. Yet another example that there still exist good, wholesome and free sites on this worldwide internetworked amalgam of computers.

My friends Noel and Darren and I visited our friend Dave in Boston this past weekend. We had way too much fun as these pictures may (or may not) indicate. The first bunch of pics is from a piano bar right near Fenway Park called Jake Ivory's. According to Brooke, it's basically a place where drunks hold each other up while demanding that the pianists play Billy Joel tunes. We all had a great time. The next set of pictures are from just outside Faneuil Hall, where we saw an excellent street performance of The Jim Show. The best two pictures both involve Jim getting hit in the groin, once by his "rola bola" and once by a club thrown by a young volunteer. But the best picture is Darren and His Dowager, where Darren makes the acquaintance of a kind old lady on the T.

Seventeen-year-old twin sisters Ruth and Rebecca Brown from Upper Dublin Township, Pennsylvania have made 4,386 tiny clay cats in Civil War uniforms. Of course, they were home-schooled, which explains their complete and total antisocial leanings. These two wackos are reason enough NOT to home-school your children. Just think about it: 4,386 kittycat soldiers, at half an hour per kittycat, is 2,193 man-hours, or 1,096 and a half hours per twin. That's a half year of 40-hour work weeks devoted to re-enacting the Battle of Gettysburg with feline rebs and yanks.

If you enjoy digital photography or its ancestor, film photography, even just a little bit, then you'll enjoy perusing other people's art at the photolog photographica.org. You can upload your own pictures or comment on someone else's. I like to vote on a picture's 'coolness' which is rated on a sliding scale. If you're interested in purchasing a digital camera, then there is no better site than dpreview.com. The Digital Photography Review is definitely the best site that reviews digital cameras. In fact, it's possibly the best site that reviews anything.

Hey! You! Pansy! Stop reading Dilbert! That's a comic strip for feeble minds. Instead, expand your mind at Shallow Grave Comics Mayhem.

Check out this short film. If you're a fan of Bon Jovi and/or Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, it's a guaranteed Laugh-A-Minute.
Fourteen-year-old Christina Santhouse of Bristol, Pennsylvania had half of her brain surgically removed because of an autoimmune disorder called Rasmussen's encephalitis. After her hemispherectomy, Christina made a scrapbook of her ordeal. On a related note, my sister Michelle makes scrapbooks.

Chalk this one up to the familiar "life-imitates-The-Simpsons" cliche: "Toddler Found Safe in Bear's Den After 3 Days". (See episode 7G09)

Three Databases to Look At (one previously linked to): 1. The Roller Coaster Database 2. The Internet Broadway Database 3. Gracenote (formerly the Compact Disc Database) These sites prove that information still flows freely (and even somewhat accurately) on the World Wide Web, even after the corporations have turned most of the web into meaningless sugar.
