Three and a half years of effort and what do they

Three and a half years of effort and what do they get? By all accounts, a real dog. Romero's ass is grass, folks.

He's so cute.

He's so cute. In the spirit of the web, I'm asking the people of the web to help me name my new cat. Wondering also if there have been other pet-naming events out there?

If we're going to talk about Drugs

If we're going to talk about Drugs then really the discussion is incomplete without a link to Erowid, the world most comprehensive warehouse of personal experience reports from users of psychedelic materials.

HA!

HA! How could I have found out about this through something other than Metafilter? You people are slacking!

Anyway, The Offspring are selling bootleg Napster merchandise.

John Perry Barlow

John Perry Barlow tries to grapple with the Napster thang, with his usual interesting writing. A buried revelation: Bands are only getting about 5% of retail, rather than the 10% I thought.

Lions and spaceships and talking trees, oh my!

Lions and spaceships and talking trees, oh my! For those of us who sneer at MDMA, a more expansive list of chemicals. Am I the only one here who admits to using some of this stuff?

Napster hits the cover of Newsweek

Napster hits the cover of Newsweek Not a bad overview and presents both sides fairly (IMHO). Also some background on Shawn. Apparently Billy Corgan is napster-friendly.

I almost though it had gone the way of so many other webzines.

Josh needs to learn how to use his tongue . . .

Madonna's new song leaked

Madonna's new song leaked to the net, and the Warner Bros. machine is none too pleased.

This redesign

This redesign looked swell on my Mac, but the tables are all screwy when I look at it through Windows (at work). Explorer 5 ain't the same on both platforms. Argh!! Not a hard fix, but what do you do when your 'blog looks like ass and you can't fix it for a whole day!! I know it's uncool to link to oneself - I'm not just trying to generate pageviews. I'm genuinely pissed off about all these web standards problems!

Canada urging Microsoft to move north

Canada urging Microsoft to move north It's pretty obvious to everyone that the US government does not believe that Microsoft should be allowed to continue operating within their borders. No problem. We'll take em, as would most other countries. I for one, would love to see Microsoft leave the US. Wouldn't you?

The Brunching Shuttlecocks

The Brunching Shuttlecocks are planning to follow Metallica's lead in seeking out pirates of their MP3 music on Napster. They have different ideas about how to deal with said pirates, though.

I used to raise lepidoptera as a kid. Other people still do, and some even sell livestock.

Sometimes it's heartwarming to go to a site that you haven't seen in years and find it's still there and growing.

Not for sale at any price.

Not for sale at any price. A UK businessman has just turned down millions for the e-buy.com domain name and trademarks. Not sure I'd be able to resist an offer like that.
