Taco Bell Offers Free Tacos for America if Angels or Giants Hit Target

In Game 5 of the World Series, the taco chain promises that if either of the contending teams' batters strike a 15-foot diameter floating target in the stands, everyone in the U.S.A. gets a free taco. Go, Barry! I want my taco!
Darwin Award Competition

"Sure, you can play with Dad's gun - if you'll just eat your soup!." That's more or less what a mother in Portugal told her four-year-old son. Being four, however, (and regrettably ignorant of such things as safeties and proper gun-handling) he not-surprisingly shot her in the stomach.

I don't think anyone could have seen this accident coming. Only now, after the fact, does it seem obvious that giving preschoolers loaded weapons is a bad idea - at least until they've been properly trained.
tv@famousaspect - The Near Future of Television

Ends friend and ally, Jason (proprietor of the endlessly-entertaining Atomgrid) has a new project up and running - a great little newsletter that aims to keep you informed on what's coming up on the small screen. The good, the bad and the putrid are picked and panned in this very readable mailing that'll give you the heads-up on TV goings-on. Sci-fi fans should be especially pleased with it, although most anything of interest to the genus couch potatus is represented in the issue I just finished reading. If you like TV, you really need this - so get off your Dorito-inflated rear end and subscribe now!
Play it, Baby, Play it!

A cool little Flash movie of a guy playing guitar.

Black People Love Us!

We are well-liked by Black people so we're psyched (since lots of Black people don't like lots of White people)!! We thought it'd be cool to honor our exceptional status with a ROCKIN' domain name and a killer website!!

Opera Baby

This has a little off-color language, but since it's nothing you can't say on television nowadays and it's so funny, here it is, enjoy.

Bobble, Bobble

Well, it looks like the latest craze is bobbleheads, those wonderfully tacky little figurines with the bobbing ceramic/plastic heads. My friend Bill showed me this site, Bobblehead World and they have some pretty good ones, like the Buddy Holly bobblehead shown above, political/sports/media figures, musicians, advertising icons and even animals. In fact, you can even send in a photo and have it tacked onto a bobble's face or have your own custom designed bobblehead done.
Come On DJ...Say the Name of the Song, Please? AGGGHHH!!!!

If you've ever had that experience - you're in the car or at home, listening to the radio and a song comes on that you like, only to be faced with the frustration of not knowing what the name of it was or who the artist is - YES.NET may be for you. Just find your city and if the station is among those listed, you'll be able to view which songs were played over the last several hours and at what time they came on, along with the option of buying the cd at one of the major online music retailers, like Amazon. A nifty idea whose time has come.
