The town of Vamhus is famous for hair art. Sarah went there, and came back with a choker made of hair. It's actually pretty cool, not at all creepy, not like Leila's Hair Museum.

More weird-ass stuff from the bottom of the ocean. Cookie-cutter sharks? Ewwww...

Now you can make some interesting jams at home.

Live Deformed Frog Cam! From the state that gave you Bob Dylan, Husker Du, and Prince.

Everone needs a hobby. How 'bout collecting vintage broadcast equipment? That seems like it would be fun. And lions. Everyone likes lions.
You might have to move to a bigger place, though.

"The Meta-Parade is a serial performance project that investigates the forms and components of parades and public spectacles"

And a posting in Endless Parade of Excellence makes it a meta-meta parade.
How much helium is left, Michelle?

Recent MRI subject Dan sends some good links about how MRI works. This one has more information, ( I like the artifacts page) but this one has a picture of a fully loaded pallet truck that got sucked into the magnet.

"The machine makes a tremendous amount of noise during a scan. The noise sounds like a continual, rapid hammering. "
(Not to be confused with the hammering sound of a pallet truck hitting your skull at 300 miles an hour. )

Very cool kinetic sculptures made of wood.

Their almost human faces
unusually expressive eyes speak about something,
that I can't understand.
Feeling of a near solution is delightful and poignant,
but mental efforts does not pass without a trace. I wake up
with a feeling of sudden loss and disillusionment.
Surrealistic cats…
Who are they and what are they for?
