How does this work?
Mashable , a blog famous (infamous?) for its long link-lists of resources for webmasters and blogheads (50 Widgets for Your Blog, 230 Tools for Running a Business Online, 400 Resources To Make You Smarter, Faster & a Demon in the Sack, Top 10 Blog Awards) has made up a surprisingly unnumbered list of Top Places To Get Free and Legal Music that includes (OMIGAWD!!!) the "MonkeyFilter MP3 Blog Listing (and shrine to MoFi's Own forksclovetofu)". more inside
NEANDERTHALS. So that explains it! Us Neanderthals are alive and well and glowing in the dark.
Black Confederate marching for "heritage." It’s a sight that elicits a second glance, maybe a third. A black man marching along the S.C. 28 toward Walhalla dressed in Confederate butternut, carrying a Confederate battle flag...“This flag has nothing to do with hate,” Mr. Edgerton said of the starred red, white and blue St. Andrew’s Cross battle flag he carried. “It’s the flag of Southern heritage, black and white"...“I wish I could report that after five years all my suffering had been vindicated,” Mr. Edgerton said. “But it hasn’t. Not when you have organizations like NASCAR that have banned our flag.”
Exmortis is a Flash game with some excellent atmosphere. The opening premise is rather familiar in games of this type - you wake up in the woods with a lump on your head, no memory, and a creepy old house ahead of you. Turn the lights down, the sound up, and get ready for a decently spooky atmosphere as you explore the mysteries of the abandoned building. The sequel is a good followup to Exmortis. Though the game can stand alone, it really picks up where the first one left off, as you deal with the aftermath of events in Exmortis. Squeamish be warned: graphic content and profanity to be found in the Exmortis games. more inside

bsimple is the gallery of conceptual photographer Misha Gordin (some images NSFW). Gordin's work often makes abstractions out of the human form, sometimes photographing multiple models together to create intricate patterns. Some images hint at the darker side of life, such as conformity and isolation even within a crowd. more inside

The Chairman Smiles is a nice selection of Soviet, Chinese, and Cuban posters from the International Institute of Social History in Amsterdam. If that merely whets your appetite there are many more from Cuba and elsewhere here, and by way of a bonus, Spanish Civil War posters here.
Delusions of Separation Very few people seem to have noticed that we are a species gone mad, which itself is an expression of the extent of the collective insanity we have fallen into. As more of us are able to illumine, recognize and articulate the nature and dynamics of the deeper psychological process that is creating our experience in the world, the more effectively we become able to deal with our world crisis. As more of us awaken to the deeper, underlying psychological process which animates events in our world, the more we will be able to consciously connect with each other in increasingly more creative ways so as to transform this process, both within ourselves, as well as in the outside world. more inside

The DM of the Rings is an excellent webcomic. Though it's created entirely from movie stills, it hits comedic notes that anyone who's played D&D will recognize. Imagine a gaggle of modern hack-n-slash AD&D roleplayers who had somehow never been exposed to the original Tolkien mythos, and then imagine taking those players and trying to introduce them to Tolkien via a D&D campaign. The gamers are easily distracted, obsessed with loot, and have a tendency to quote Monty Python at the drop of a d8. The frustrated DM tries to keep the party on the rails, and the players fight against the railroading. All in all, I think I've gamed with all these people before. more inside
Cronyism American Style Can you believe it? Some third world country elected the wife of a former president as the new prez. What kind of banana republic sh*t is that?

Movember is about to begin! Officially the purpose of Movember is to raise awareness of prostate cancer, but for most participants it's a testosterone-fest to see which man can grow the most body hair in one month. Here are some manly men from last year's Movember: I am reasonably confident that the male monkeys can be (and probably are) hairier than that. I plan to grow a beautiful flowing handlebar mo myself.
