staffers have a blog, appropriately titled don't bomb us. i've syndicated it as [livejournal.com profile] dont_bomb_us.

also, their flickr pictures. always good to put a human face on an organisation.

i am completely cocooned around thinking about and making collages, and therefore not very verbal.

the smell of the paramour's chili is wafting through the house. ghod, it smells good. i cut up 7 lbs of meat earlier, and a few onions, peppers, and garlic, and then left the maestro to compose the delectable offering. another hour and a half before it'll be ready, if i'm lucky (this is a decent cut of meat, so it shouldn't take much longer).

i'm leaving you with total robot mania -- links to all sorts of robots; paper robots, plush robots, robot fabric, robot cake, robot cards, robot kits, etc, etc.

design magazine 1965-1974 has been scanned and digitized, and can be browsed and searched online.

still not feeling so hot, but i don't think i am getting sick; it's just some sort of psychological malaise underlined by my body not being as happy as it could be.

i've spent some of my time today catching up on the abramoff hairball, which looks well on its way to leave quite a number of republican politicians with slime all over their persons. there are oodles of tentacles to this thing; i wonder how many investigators it is providing with job security.

since that thing leaves me feeling dirty and i am not allowing myself to spew bile all day long, i made up for it by looking at art, and cleaning up found images for collage purposes. the cleaning is mindless, but leaves me feeling productive, since it's necessary. and while lassoing image components i don't want, i think about copyright for collage artists. *wry grin*.

i've also caught up with my backlog of alt.poly, which was mostly fun.

some of the art i've enjoyed today:

ukrainian artist sergey hrapov, who designs bookplates and illustrates children's books.

photography by henry domke.

walter j. phillips, canadian water colour artist and printmaker. my love affair with woodblock printing continues. one of these days i want to actually do it myself.

objectgraph instant dictionary displays words as you type. there's also a thesaurus, an english-japanese dictionary, and a couple of other goodies. requires javascript.

fun.

of right-wing blogs. more suggestions in the comments.

i made angry political posts, so i owe a few positive ones. :)

millions of games is a great resource for online timewasting! i think the tagging works particularly well in this context.

marvelous and useful toy which enables one to find new writers one might like. i plugged in dorothy dunnett and it came up with some names i don't even recognise. exciting!

for each angry political post, i vow to post at least two positive non-political ones.

the photography of ladislav kamarád. breathtaking landscapes.

erection photos. of penes, not erector sets. :) i find the soft-hard gallery particularly interesting.

not pornographic, though of course your definition of pornography might vary; the animated gifs might fall into that category for some.

in the interest of giving equal educational time, i found no site that's quite the equivalent of the above, but at least there are a couple that show a number of normal breasts, sorted by cup size.

scrolling down and clicking on "more samples" on each page comes up with more chuckys.

on an art kick today, it seems.

jed dougherty paints large, powerful women. leans towards myth/fantasy, with plenty o' nudity, but not of the pornographic kind.

i'm not into the ultra-muscular ones (i don't like the physique of muscle-bound men either), but i do like some of the ones in which the women have well-defined muscles. funny, this almost makes me want to work out. but in general what i like is that these are confident, strong women.
