08-14-01 When LP's Roamed The Earth
Save the LP vs. CD sonic-quality debate for another day. We're tired of it,
and so are the guys behind this site. They welcome the sound and innovations
of the CD, but they lament the loss of the most important part of the LP --
the cover. Most of us remember the large canvas that musicians and designers
had to work with before the advent of the compact disc. This site takes a
look back at 35 records that exemplify the lost art of album covers. The colors,
imagery, and font choices may seem shocking, but don't look away. Instead,
browse through them and read a bit of the story behind each cover. Make sure
to tell 'em Curly Ray Cline sent ya.

08-10-01 The John Hughes Files
If you were in high school in the 1980s, chances are you know the names Duckie,
Blaine, and Farmer Ted. These characters came to life in the teen films of
writer/director/producer John Hughes. The heart of this site Hughes shrine
is the A-Z files. This section brims with trivia about everything from the
fictional Chicago suburb of Shermer, Illinois (where so many Hughes films
are set), to John Lennon references in The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller's
Day Off. But the site catalogs more than just the teen flicks. Two decades
of movies are covered -- the Jukebox even features sound clips from the opening
credits of National Lampoon's Vacation and the title track of She's Having
A few things you should know about humanclock.com: 1) It currently has photos
for about 850 of the 1440 minutes in a day. 2) If you see a missing minute

3) About 95% of the photos were taken in Portland, Oregon. 4) We think the
guy at 1:09 pm looks like trouble. 5) The girl at 11:11 am is single and looking.
6) We're quickly becoming addicted to checking the time.
A massive index of Christian lyrics that can be sung to popular tunes, this site is a hoot, no matter what your religious persuasion. Witness the rock 'n' roll splendor that is "Biblethumping" (sung to Chumbawamba's "Tubthumping"): "He's forgiving / And He's living / He's forgiving / My God got killed, but He rose up again / Death could never never keep Him down!" And the hits keep coming: "Addicted to God," "Hey! Hey! We're Not Monkeys," "Smells Like Holy Spirit," "How Sweet It Is (To Be Saved By Grace)," and "Sittin' At The End Of The Pew." So dust off that six-string and revisit some of your favorite tunes in a whole new light.
08-07-01 Bill Nye Although the 100th episode (the "Motion" show) may mark the end of the BNSG era, but the show will continue to air on PBS and in syndication for years to come. For Bill Nye, there's plenty more way-cool science on the way. Currently three specials with Bill are in development, so it may not be long before Bill's back at bat with the Science of Sports, thinking big with Bill Nye's Guide to the Brain, or space-ing out with his guide to the "Next Planet" -- Mars.
