Oh Sure, Everyone Always Remembers The First, Never The Second

Catscan.com sure is a strange site. But did you know Jennicam (deadlink... previously) is nowadays hailed as one of the greatest now-defunct websites to have ever existed? Operated by Jennifer Ringley and closed in 2003 after seven years of a very popular existence , Jennicam was a guilty pleasure that for the longest time seemed lost to the newest denizens of the intertubes. Thankfully all 43 episodes can be viewed online! Once you've feasted on that digital archive, check out the interview Jenni gave to Webjunk back in 2007, and read some of the sonnets inspired by her work.

The Deuce!

Sex, drugs and sleaze! Were the bad old days really the good old days? Native New Yorkers who remember the City in the 70s, 80s, and 90s, speak up! Was the Big Apple better off then or now?

Virtually employed

Second Life is a great place for a virtual job fair, right? Well, maybe not. (That recruiter's lucky all s/he got handed was a beer...) Even the cops are getting in on the action.. Time magazine probably thinks it's a bad idea, though maybe they wouldn't have 5 years ago.

Films of Roy Andersson

Ingmar Bergman once said that Roy Andersson "makes the best commercials in the world." The 64 year old Swedish director has also made a couple of striking feature films, including the 2000 Cannes Jury Prize winner Songs from the Second Floor (excerpt / reviews) and this year's still unreleased You, the Living (excerpt / review).

Crime and Punishment, Online Style

Crime and Punishment, Online Style Long a bastion of metaverse fantasies, avatars competing for style, and commercial dreams, Second Life has become a phenomenon. Lately, though, things are going a bit awry. Hacking attempts have been common, with the latest shutting things down only a few days ago. To address this crime, the SL crew is looking into creating a virtual FBI. Dibs on the Scully avatar.

Nazi home movies

A 10 minute home movie taken by an SS officer has been discovered in an English church. It shows SS officers and secretaries relaxing in the summer of 1942 in southern Russia. The last couple of minutes shows footage from a slave labor camp in that area. The footage was taken at the height of the German success in Russia, a few months before the turning point in the Russian campaign - and probably the turning point in the Second World War.
