the best links ever:

I have stuff cooking in my head about the whole moving-to-another-continent topic; til then, these are the best links ever.


Proper srs links:

Daisy is asking if we can support the troops without supporting the war, and where classism fits with that.

Vii on interracial dating.

Brad Hicks on lynching as an economic crime.

The entire internets on those racist mid-Superbowl ads that put us right off our cookies.


Sillier links;

Deathboy on Chanology London - omg, read this, or at least look at the pictures.

Saint Gasoline has a comic strip on How To Be An Asshole With Mathematics.

Punkass on that bit where Mitt Romney said that voting Democrat is surrendering to terrorism.

Aishwarya on the suicidal, sex-obsessed Hobbits who sneaked into her house.

"put us right off our cookies."

I love British expressions!

HAH!! So that's what the throng of people I saw on Sunday in the city was all about. I couldn't read their signs- I could only make out XENUTV.COM- so I figured they were Scientologists. =)

No funny links I'm afraid, though I remain perplexed how someone could land on a post of mine called Defining Neoliberalism after searching on google for 'feminist porn'. Funny old world.

Daisy: funny, I was kinda wondering about doing a post about British vocab and other expectations.

avps: I should start posting about my bestest google hits. The other day someone got to my rant about sex workers in sci fi by googling 'do dwarf women have normal sized vaginas'. The hits for my Les Mis post are piling up awful fast, too, though they're nearly all fishing for slash rather than metaslash. Also, I am liek 12th on Saudi Arabian Google for 'farmgirls', and the other 11 are all porn.

Hahaha, well Thene, I've been toying with the idea of calling a post 'Britney Spears sex tape' just to see what happens. Not long ago I posted about a documentary on San Quentin prison, and I still get a load of traffic from people searching for info about the crimes of the featured inmates. Nice! (The day after I posted that message, my traffic increased by seven times).

Sorry that one went over your head! There's an old Flanders and Swann skit I used to listen to on vinyl when I was a kid in which Michael Flanders translates 'La Belle Dame Sans Merci' as 'The Beautiful Lady Who Never Says Thankyou'. It is a bad joke blatantly stolen from someone who's too dead to complain about it, and I will remove it if you wish.
