Fairly twisted music video (Qtime) from the Taiwanese group Loh Tsui Kweh Commune. Definitely NSFW. Starts off innocently enough but goes downhill pretty quick.
It's official people, MTV is so last millennium!

"Fundamentalism is the Enemy of All Civilized Humanity".
The Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA), an organization fighting against the Taliban for the past ten years, commemorates Sept. 11 and describes Afghanistan one year later. What they describe ain't pretty:
"With their second occupation of Kabul, the 'Northern Alliance' thwarted any hopes for a radical, meaningful change. They are themselves now the source and root of insecurity, the disgraceful police atmosphere of the Loya Jirga, rampant terrorism, gagging of democracy, atrocious violations of human rights, mounting pauperization, prostitution and corruption, the flourishing of poppy cultivation, failure of beginning to reconstruct, and a host of further unlisted evils, too many to enumerate."

is a true maverick of the British music industry and is a legend in some sad quarters. His last hit was 25 years ago and now that he is coming up to 50 his fans have promised him another hit for his birthday
. I see this as a fight for authenticity and against bubblegum. John must have that hit. It's a miracle he has survived, he deserves it.

200 words or less with a 3-word title: one of the earliest and most interesting writing experiments on the web is finally back, and the slate is clean. John Casler's Fragx (short for fragments) challenges the most verbose of us to strip it down, distill it to its most basic elements, then put it up for a healthy flogging by other writers. Sounds like good practice.

In a web full of lame Flash cartoons, Miss Muffy and the Muff Mob
stands out. It had us in complete hysterics when we first saw it on an MTV animated special months ago. It's a rude, hip-hop Strawberry Shortcake-ish series, with music by Pharcyde and great characters. Watch all 5 episodes if you can, or at least the 2 music videos in the sidebar.

then check with the sheriff. Now what would you do if you received a black lace thong in an anonymous letter? Suspect anthrax or is Sadie Hawkins Day coming up?

Bravo, President Bush!
He hit the mark with this speech, correctly identifying the stakes, the principles, and the risks. More: he was passionate, feeling, and genuine. Did he win over any critics?

The New Sins (Los Pescados Nuevos).
A new book/art project/philosophical exploration/satire from David Byrne, in collaboration with McSweeney's. I can't wait to check it out. See
how the whole thing came about. Fawn over Byrne's endless creativity. Rave at more brilliance from the good folks at McSweeney's.

CBS dials 911 4 BB2...
Arnold Shapiro (who helmed Rescue 911, Scared Straight, & more) has been announced as Executive Producer, in hopes of resusitating what critics pronounced DOA last year despite above satisfactory summer ratings. Some of new developments sound promising. Some don't.

Okay, we know that web polls are nonsense, but I'm sure some people here on MeFi will be interested in the Time.com virtual voter booth

So Dave has a distributable protest site
up for the elian_true animation. What I want to know is, what does this mean: "Wazzup!!! To every tax paying American that felt
they should have sent Elian Gonzalez
to join his Mother (in the ocean)."
