"The First Gaze" -
Armed with a rudimentary portable movie camera, Robert Drew
's presidential campaign with unprecedented candor. The resulting film, 1960's Primary
, helped introduce cinéma vérité
to American journalism. [more inside]
- To hear the Lou Dobbses and Bill O'Reillys of the world--not to mention politicians ranging from Ron Paul to Hillary Clinton--the middle class of America (however you define that term) has never had it so tough. Between credit squeezes, out-of-control immigration, rising costs of education and health care and everything else, it's all darkness out there for those of us who are neither millionaires nor welfare cases, right? (A video presented by Drew Carey and reason.tv)
hosts Canada's "most listened to" spiritual radio program. As a former pastor who is fed up with phony church culture, he does an interesting job of critiquing North American Christianity from the inside. This fair-minded interview with Richard James

. Besides his various writings (including an unfinished novel entitled Temp Jobbin'
), he gained relative internet stardom for his lego porn site, which due to litigation he had to change to block-structure porn
. He also popularized Domokun
and received a great deal of hate for his instructions on how to kill squirrels with electricity
. He even took the time to register morrisseydance.com
. Lately drew has been writing for .net magazine
and drawing and sellings images through toothpaste for dinner

The Original Tom Swift Series Public Domain Texts.
Twenty-five of 'em for your perusal. In piles of formats, some including page scans, and with color cover images (mostly from here
, where they also have larger images). Not that
kind of Tom Swift, mind you.
I must admit, the domain name gave me pause. So far, no teleportation has transpired.
