360-Degree Panoramas

VRMAG is a travel and photography magazine that specializes in 360-degree panorama images.

One of the stories deals with the Burning Man festival: Burning Man Festival, One Man's Experience. It's an interview with photographer Charles Evans. You'll also find some of Charles Evans' excellent panorama photos of the festival.

Burning Man, the annual arts festival and bacchanal held in the Nevada desert, has reached mythical status, and the uninitiated are curious. We've all heard the allusions: life-changing, soul-inspiring, sudden mind-altering freedom from prohibitive social and class restrictions. But attendees say it's all that, and more.

The Authentic History Center

You'll find lots of interesting items (visual and auditory) at the Authentic History Center. The site is the work of Michael S. Barnes:

I began teaching history in 1994 and right around that time this thing called the internet began to force its way into our daily lives. I soon formulated the idea of creating a history website that would not be just a collection of links, but an archive of American history sources based on popular culture. I wanted to make as many of the sources I have collected as possible available to teachers, students, and history enthusiasts.

The images shown here are from the Native American Stereotypes section.

Same-Sex Weddings

Two Brides and Two Grooms are shopping sites for those involved in same-sex weddings.

"The concept for this business was born in 1999 as I searched high and low for nuptial-themed gifts for my daughter's wedding. Most of the store cupboards offered nothing for same-sex unions -- thus my inspiration for a store in which the cupboards would always be full of specialty items for alternative weddings."

365 Self Portraits

Andrew Jones drew 365 self portraits in 365 days.

what a year. i can honestly say that this has been one of the most interesting years of my life, it has been one of the hardest and most demanding, and also one of the most rewarding, every emotion i am capable of is represented with in these pixels,

the rabbit hole of my own narcissism is dark and deep, but you guys make the journey brighter, and I am still curious to see how far down it goes.

(Yeah, he's one of those guys who has a broken Shift key.)

A Punny Song

About 20 years ago, Kip Addotta recorded a song called "Wet Dreams." I think it includes every fish pun known to man. You can read the lyrics here. An excerpt:

I slipped him a fin -- on porpoise
I was feeling good
I even dropped a sand dollar in the box for Jerry's Squids -- for the halibut
Well, the place was crowded
We were packed in like sardines
They were all there to listen to the big band sounds of Tommy Dorsal -- what sole
Tommy was rockin' the place with a very popular tuna -- "Salmon Chanted Evening"

Franken 1, Fox News 0

File this under "Free Publicity." From MSNBC: Franken book will not be blocked.

A federal judge on Friday denied Fox News Channel's request for an injunction to block humorist Al Franken's new book, whose title mocks the Fox slogan "fair and balanced."

Franken's book is currently #1 at Amazon. If Fox didn't send out the lawyers, nobody would have even heard of this book.
