A bunch of linked things:
I stumbled upon something called the American Buddha Online Library which, despite (or because of?) being devoted to an eccentric species of that particular religion, is in fact a rather eclectic site filled with bits and pieces of literature, music, movies, philosophy and Goat knows what else (I haven't had time to explore the whole thing_from all over. Much of it is stuff I wouldn't have the time to download, being on dialup (I noticed, among other things, excerpts form Terry Gilliam's movie "Brazil"), but there's other stuff as well. Pictures, in particular, which I always find pleasing (screen caps of scenes from "Black Orpheus!") There are indications that the site is a project of cyberlawyer Charles Carreon. How does he find the time?
I also stumbled upon a picture of a green woodpecker posted (at the site StumbleUpon, oddly enough) by a guy from Leiden, Netherlands. I've never before seen a green woodpecker.
Then there's Bruce Eisner's computer deal of the day! I wish I'd found that last year.
Too much stuff on teh Internets!
