Not your daddy's Superman. A collection of iconic comic book characters isn't new--unless they're all reinterpretations of the original characters done by prominent artists like Moebius, Alex Ross and Yoshitaka Amano. (French)
Fixate the green dot for a while and watch the others disappear. Actually they don't disappear. Nice visual illusion, used in neuroscientific conscioussnes research - the background motion somehow interfers with the percept of the dots. What's reality anyways?
Ceefax online - perhaps the least essential service ever created. Some genius in the Netherlands has created a searchable database of current Ceefax content. more inside
Curious Georbe -programmable tv? In the 1970s, I bought a tv (Sony) which allowed one to program the order in which cable channels showed up on the tv. It was sooo nice. Those that I've bought since didn't have that feature. Now, even on basic cable, we have more channels than I care to think about and many of those that we might like to watch are up in 400s or above. This is driving my mother, who is nearly blind, nuts, since finding Animal Planet or the Travel Channel is almost impossible for her. (They're things she can listen to and get the gist of what's going on.) But, it's almost impossible for her to find those channels since she can't really see the remore control. Is there anything out there which would make her tv viewing easier?

Robert Creeley died of respiratory complications yesterday. I could tell you how great his poetry is, or you can read for yourselves. first seen at metafilter.
Guitar Wolf's Billy Wolf (neƩ Hideaki Sekiguchi) died today at age 38 of a heart attack. But instead of a simple mourning post, I'd like to take this opportunity to rock out, Jap-thrash style. I can't seem to find any mp3s of the following bands (though I own quite a few albums from them), so if any of you would like to help, you're more than welcome. more inside

Complex Anime Origami. Photos of 3d sculptures of anime characters, made of paper. Some are pretty risque (and furry). The level of detail makes it look like these are huge, almost life size, but this one is sitting on top of a DVD case. Some of these would freak me out a little if they weren't so amazing. (site is in japanese, and geocities. Even so, it's worth looking at) more inside

Rude food I'm not normally one for chuckling at Chinglish, but this is a spectacularly bad effort (and NSFW).
