6-28-01 Men Who Look Like Kenny Rogers
This one's fairly self-explanatory -- lots and lots of photographs of men
who look like Kenny Rogers. Jaimie Muehlhausen explains: "You see them
at the mall, the state fair, restaurants, even at the new car lot. They look
like Kenny Rogers and sometimes it's downright spooky. Sometimes it's spooky
for the right reasons and sometimes for all the wrong reasons." Check
out the amateur file, the impersonator collection, the celebrity portfolio,
or the Kenny of the Month. Browse the suggestions of good places to spot men
who look like Kenny Rogers, or go ahead and pick up tips on how to look like
Kenny Rogers yourself.

The Tech, an innovative technology museum in San Jose, California, offers a double-edged tribute to Stanley Kubrick's monolithic science-fiction film. Showcasing the intersection of science and art, the museum's physical exhibit has been translated into four main parts: Fact and Fiction -- showing the advances that 2001: A Space Odyssey anticipated and which have come to pass; The Art of Robert McCall -- paintings by and an interview with the renowned illustrator; Visionary Voices -- Q & A with scholars whose work was affected by Kubrick's film; and finally, Learning Resources -- challenges for students and links to an astronomical amount of information on 2001 and our future in space.

A water ballet about the Spanish Inquisition. Farting cowboys. Manly men
in tights. Who could be as politically incorrect, hilarious, and successful
as Mel Brooks? His Broadway adaptation of his 1968 movie The Producers recently

to Brooks' film work and features a page full of photos and sound clips from
each of his 13 films. This site's creator knows that to truly appreciate Brooks'
comedy, you've got to experience it. So the site serves up gems like the Nazi-parodying
show tune "Spring Time" and a picture of Frankenstein's monster
smoking a cigarette after sex. Oy vey!

6-11-01 Underwater Archaeology
Beneath the waters of the Mediterranean lie vast amounts of relics from the
region's maritime history. Undisturbed for centuries, these items are painstakingly
uncovered, identified, catalogued, photographed, and analyzed by teams of
intrepid marine archaeologists from France and other countries. This site
highlights some daring expeditions and pays homage to past discoverers who
brought the complicated craft of modern diving to the fore. Like their dry-land
counterparts -- these marine archaeologists are concerned with more than human
artifacts. While visiting the undersea world, they also note the unique topography

6-08-01 Bob Hope and American Variety
The Library of Congress presents this impressive look at the first half of
the American 20th Century. This isn't just about Bob Hope's comedy career,
it's about American immigrants at the turn of the century, Vaudeville, the
glory days of radio, the Great Depression, the advent of sound in Motion Pictures,
World War II, and early live television, among other things. It's also loaded
with fascinating primary documents: original Vaudeville showbills, movie publicity
stills, a packed 1983 appointment book, and letters from POWs. All this from
the man who claimed "I have performed for twelve presidents and entertained
6-07-01 le piano
Tre cool. This very hip and very French music simulator transforms your PC into a fully funktified groove machine. It works by assigning a sample to each letter on your keyboard: a breakbeat, a lead synth melody, a hip-hop chorus, etc. Lay down a basic bass and drum track, then go crazy with the leads. You can choose between five types of songs -- "Cargo" is world music, "Rude Boy" is reggae, "Lov' Techno" is electronic, etc. And as you play, you manipulate the swirling psychedelic images on your screen. Why go outside?
6-06-01 InterPlanetary Internet
The Internet Society is an organization that works to ensure the growth and
evolution of the Internet and its infrastructure. The Interplanetary Internet
research group represents its latest foray into the future. The goal of this
project "is to define the architecture and protocols necessary to permit
interoperation of the Internet resident on Earth with other remotely located
internets resident on other planets or spacecraft in transit." What's
all that mean? Well, as far as we can tell, it means that if this plan takes
root, sending an email to Mars in the future will be much easier than downloading
an MP3 from Napster.
