A student asked the Master, "What is the nature of the Unofficial Daria Movie Rumor Page?
The Master repiled, "The Page is a long, confusing story told backwards
. It is lies and half-truths
, yet it is the greater truth. It is a mirror, a puppet show
, a morality tale, a fiction which is real life, an homage yet the reverse of an homage
. It is the future, set in the present, retelling the past
. It is the present, set in the present, retelling the present."
The student said, "Huh
The Master continued, "If all else fails
, look at the very bottom of the Page, past the links and the Web rings."
The student, not understanding, did as the Master told him. It was then that he was enlightened

PETA vs. Britney
Boy, it's hard to pick a side to root for in this fight. The paragraph that caught my attention, though, was this: the spotted cats are supposedly going to be prowling the [MTV's Video Music Awards] stage around the scantily-clad popster (and self-proclaimed virgin) as she wails her new hip-hop-flavored tune, "I'm A Slave 4 U," while simulating an orgasm on stage a la Madonna.
Yeah, except that Madonna was at least consistent in her portrayal of sexuality as healthy and fun. A self-proclaimed virgin faking orgasms on nationwide TV, on the other hand, sounds like a heapin' helping of bizarro mixed messages

Teens Sue MTV Over Defecation Incident.
In addition to a cosmically beautiful headline, this should give everybody plenty of opportunities to gripe about pandering to the lowest common denominator in entertainment, why television is going to hell, etc. Boy, MTV is receiving quite the drubbing these days, eh?

will run a continuous list of hate crime victims' names for 17 hours. Seems like a somewhat empty gesture to me...

The best Comic in recent memory NOT written by Scott McCloud
Remember the Real World in San Francisco? That was the one with Pedro dying of AIDS and Puck getting kicked off. Well, I just read a book about Pedro and Judd's friendship called Pedro and Me. This is the best comic I have read since 'Jar of Fools' or 'Understanding Comics.' I read it today at lunch and it moved me to tears. Anyone who knows someone with AIDS should read this book.

- Did anybody besides me see this movie on MTV last night? I never would have, since movies about boy bands aren't exactly my idea of a good time, but Leslie

Last night, I was sitting around thinking 'The Real World show on MTV really sucks, I wonder if anyone on the web feels the same way?' About 30 seconds later I found these guys
, and they're serious about it. God I love the internet.
