Peanut Butter Candy?
Banana Candy?
We can't decide.

Umm... What would Elvis do?

This man takes the cake.

Taeeun Yoo gets a little spotlight at Drawn! today. And we must say this Wrinkle in Time cover makes us want to go re-read this book.

Can't put a finger on it, but some quality of this illustration gets right to what literary characters feel like to an 11-year-old (at least how we remember being 11 years old...)

Just saying... tho we seldom take a hard political line here at the playland of As Far As The Eye Can See, we would be sorely stung if the Feds took away our KSEY. And it looks like that is going to happen on July 15, what with the broadcasting tax that will begin on that date. No more Loretta Lynn, Bob Wills, and menus for Meals-on-Wheels in Seymour, Texas while we pine away in our miserable New England office.

Go vote for internet radio, y'all. Giddyap.

Anyone feeling nostalgic for a summer reading list? No? Come on now... you don't have to write a book report or anything.

No? Apparently neither does the Prime Minister of Canada. But Yann Martel, author of Life of Pi, keeps pestering the guy with paperbacks. We have been excitedly reading these books as they appear on the list, making this a little like playing Space Invaders, except it's got learning involved. If I run into the Prime Minister of Canada, we will have a lot to talk about.

Book report to follow.

Wow. Wow. Bring your long-suffering brain into the 1960s with these over-the-top clips of Los Bravos, courtesy of WFMU blog.

Pierre Cardin's aorta house is just right for you! Err.. nice place to visit...

... thanks Neatorama.

Faithless is puzzling and delightful, and doesn't make us especially thirsty for Coca-Cola products. Produced by several talented yokels at Paranoid Now.

Thanks to Cartoon Brew for the pointer.

Hans Richter's Ghost Before Breakfast (link to Ubuweb's vast archives... as usual, pack a lunch because you will not return from this alternate universe for half a day, if you're speedy)!

Aaand the Digital Dada Library, from Iowa!! Yes!!!

Find out about Teen Time at the
Secret Fun Blog, and we will mail you a check for $7 if you don't laff out loud.

Mr Woo makes robots out of trash. Nicely done, boingboing.

Now, we personally know a farmer who builds cannons that can propel a turnip over the Connecticut River, using only PVC pipes, model rocket engines, and Aqua Net.

But we have no YouTube footage of him.

Fortunately he will be profiled in the upcoming PBS documentary on space travel, "Battle Beyond Belief."

We did find footage of my pal Jason tho... homemade welded scrap metal guitars, crazy backwards homemade electronics, the usual.

Plus, the new Casper the Friendly Ghost movie.

Which will be terrific, if you've gone without sleep for a few days.

Do you agree?

Thanks to Cartoon Brew for the pointer.
