Links of the day
- NNDB: Great biography and general information site of famous and newsworthy people.
- I haven't had a chance to watch this, so I can't vouch for its quality, but here is Star Wars Episode III: A Lost Hope
- Cool. A huge list of music band fonts. Rock on!
- Tools you might have missed. A whole bunch of "tools" that use the Google API to find obscure information. Good concept, but still a little lacking.
- Biggest web design mistakes of 2004. One for me.
- Wired article on Firefox. If you haven't switched yet, take a look at this article. A good story.
- Wow. This is just plain weird. Get a limited edition print of a painting of Steve Perry (yes, Steve Perry of Journey) as Robocop. Curt, I expect to see this in your house when I come up next.
- Scrappleface: Iraqi Voting Disrupts News Reports of Bombings. How true.
- I've probably posted this before, but I think it is too funny: The Lemon's History of the Internet timeline.
- Incredible story of woman in Germany practically being forced into prostitution by a job center because "prostitution is no longer considered by the law to be immoral."
That's all I got for today. Let me know if I missed anything cool.

Steve Perry as Robocop. This proves that I'll never understand how some people think.

The Steve Perry print really doesn't go with my home decorating scheme. Trust me, however, that had we came across this in college it would have been central to the decorating scheme of my half of the room!!
Curt in Grand Forks (who once referred to Journey as "my band," which Shane never lets me forget)

You could hang it in the bathroom, instead. For those prolonged moments on the toilet, to state at in contemplation.

So true, SBG. I sat and looked at that picture and said, "Why?" and then "Who?" and then I just got a little spooked by it. Strange.
And Curt, do you mean you won't be buying this print? And I thought you were such a Journey fan! I mean, you once did call them "My band."
Maynard, do you know the story behind this print? If so please feel free to share. We'd love to know.

The story is: Journey rocks.
Also, it's a comic juxtaposition. Griffith's art usually transcends words because of that.
That's an art-geek's take on it.

Well, Maynard, it left me speechless.

Wait! Here's the best part! Check out the bottom of the story on Mr. Robocop!
UPDATE: The demand has exceeded my initial expectations, so I am ordering 400 more copies. The order will be placed Wednesday, February 2nd.
Get 'em while they're hot!

Oh. How amazing, an artist is selling his work. Pretty remarkable.
