- The Google Image Quiz is beautiful and addictive in its simplicity. If you have an hour free, give it a try.
- Smash-Up Derby seems like a cool band. They specialize in taking the lyrics to one song and putting them to the music of another song, possibly of a genre counterintuitively related to the genre of the first. For instance, here's their take on Talking Heads + Franz Ferdinand.
- I really like these Lichtensteinian images; I particularly like the fact that that page has a detailed tutorial on how to create them w/ photoshop.
- Here's the Crumb family website. (That's "Crumb" as in "R.") Here are a bunch of R.'s illustrations of blues musicians, and here is his Charley Patton comic book.
- Last but not least, looks like everybody's getting in on Snakes-on-a-mania. And I mean everybody! UPDATE, 8/19/06: The ♥G♥ swears to me that last night, shortly after going to sleep, I tossed and turned and said something to the effect of "Get them off of me! Get these snakes off me!" -- I have no recollection of this incident.
