"...another first-grader, Allen Norris, already had the [left and right] concept figured out. He had a smallpox inoculation scar on his left arm, so he knew that the unscarred arm was his right. (Years later, he was the only kid in our driver's ed class who insisted on taking his test with no shirt.)"

Damn Hell Ass Kings
Wing Chun and Glark of hissyfit fame have put together a little portal containing sites from some of their favorite folks. Worth a tour, since they've got folks like Gwentown, Xeney, Fresh Hell, and others I haven't even read yet.

"Dedicated to the beauty of seeds pasted on a board to make a picture." Not only a gallery of images -- they've got essays, too!

Raven Days: anti-bullying resources
Thank god I didn't have much trouble like this in school, but I know some folks do! "In the past few years, there's been much talk about 'safer schools'. [...] The irony here is that, for a few students in every school, school is as unsafe as it can be. [...] Not only do the much-publicized 'safer schools' programs do nothing to help such students; they can actually harm them, by adding a veneer of legitimacy to their classmates' attacks. When outsiders are seen (wrongly, in almost all cases) as threats to the average student, there is even more motivation for classmates, teachers and administrators to harass them."

Gwen's Unfulfilled Romance in Mexico
I love Gwen's picture stories! "Although I'd left several pathetic romances wilting back home, I was ready to meet someone new. Especially when I saw that there were manly teens who rode horses and gave you gifts just for being pretty. That happened to Letty. She got a nice ceramic jewelry box from the boy down the road. All she had to do was sit out in front of the house with a little lipgloss on, and guys would come by in droves to pay their respects."

Masquerade Moon rubber stamp collaboration
Evocative images in this book, a one-off project that was a gift for Elaine Normandy, list-owner of Sara-L (stands for Stamping And Related Arts). Quite a variety of styles here. I want to start stamping again!

Yahoo messes up webrings
Yahoo bought webring.com a while back, but now they've made public the changes they want to make, and boy are the ring-owners pissed! Online journalers were big early adopters of webrings, and now most are looking for other ways to host their existing rings. Why? Look at the stuff Yahoo will require on your page!

June's Olympic Zeitgeist Watch
June Thomas has revived the "you say tomato" brand with an olympics-based weblog.
"With just 11 days to go before what will undoubtedly be an over-the-top Olympics opening ceremony, it's time to start the Olympics Zeitgeist Watch. It's still a little early to predict the games' big themes, but here are some guesses:
- In the United States, the NBC Backlash
- Medal Fatigue
- Nikidas Fatigue
- These Are Mrs. Jones' Games
- The Long Overdue Juan Antonio Samaranch Backlash"

I'd figured that Werner had given up, what with no updates since January. But he's made big changes to the Disney links to the future page. "Get sneak previews of future Disney projects. Please be aware that all plans are subject to change, and that, depending upon the site, you might find some rumors and speculation." Especially interesting is Jim Hill's behind the scenes take on Disney's California Adventure and all the politics behind it.
