"But Ged stooped and plucked a blade of wild grass that poked up dry and frail out of the snow where the otak had lain dead. This blade he held up, and as he spoke aloud to it in the True Speech it lengthened, and thickened, and when he was done he held a great staff, a wizard's staff, in his hand."

—excerpt from A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin

Today's gross overgeneralization: Girls are Sloppy, have you noticed? They might spend two hours making themselves up and looking like a million bucks, but you go into their room and it looks like yours when you were twelve. This just makes them more lovable, if you love them already.

Alvin Lee of Ten Years After

Have you noticed the cool music in the commercial for Michael Moore's Fahrenheit/911? That's Ten Years After fellow babies. A great rock band that people don't listen to often enough and shame on them, like they have something better to do? Listen: this is urgent. Get the 2002 re-issue of Cricklewood Green today. Two bonus tracks and it'll help you remember what Rock n Roll is all about.

Less interesting than that: Cheney says "fuck" / all the girls of Star Trek / via grow a brain / the Green Slime theme song / Speed Racer doesn't know that his brother is actually the mysterious Racer X / my favorite Spiderman comic strip / some celebrity blogs.
