It's Random Linky Time, It's Random Linky Time...

The Cynical Bastard Takes on Doctor Who: A lightning-fast, entertainingly acerbic look at Doctor Who. Normally, I'd complain about the stereotypical depiction of fans, but frankly I think Who fandom, generally speaking, deserves it.

Garfield Minus Garfield: Ten times trippier, funnier, and sadder than Garfield with Garfield.

Virtual Barber Shop: Put on a pair of headphones, close your eyes, and enjoy the uncanny auditory illusion of being in a three-dimensional space with invisible barbers. This is really, really cool, and a fascinating example of the neat tricks your brain can play on you. It also, interestingly, freaked me out more than anything else in recent memory.

NSS Space Settlement Art Contest: Gallery of entries for the National Space Society's recent calendar art contest on the theme of space settlement. Features some pretty nice pictures.

Sawyer's Nickname Generator: Find out what nickname Lost's resident smartass would give you on the island. Apparently I'm "Frosty." I'm... not sure how I feel about that.


  1. There's also "Garfield as a real cat":

    I still think the continued existence of the real strip is the scariest.

  2. I have seen it without the dialog for the animals (which IMO was slightly less funny that the no-animals-at-all version, but sadder). When I went to link to that particular site, though, it had disappeared. I hadn't seen that particular version, with the more realistic-looking cat. Somehow, I don't think that works quite as well.

  3. What's amazing is that people are desperately trying to make Garfield funny, while Jim Davis (or his minions) is content with doing the exact opposite.
