For the Aged Britpop Fans Out There...

Which Creation Band Are You?

Exactly what I was hoping for...though My Bloody Valentine would have been appropriate as well.

You Are... The Jesus And Mary Chain. You are moody and unpredictable. You are the underdog who refuses to sink to the bottom. You have more talent than you ever really let anyone know. It almost seems as if you try and sabotage whatever good things may be going on in your life, and you often feel like you may be giving people a bit too much of yourself. Being in the spotlight is something you find to be rather uncomfortable though you secretly yearn to be loved by everyone. You lean toward things of a darker nature and are prone to self destructive tendencies. You struggle with happiness for the simple fact that you seem to be in love with your misery. You are a realist.

Progress is Not an Illusion, it Happens, But it is Slow and Invariably Disappointing

When people talk about progress there is often an underlying assumption that it is a natural thing and that we are ever plowing forward. Please enjoy these point-counter point arguments provided by Yahoo! News. They were one on top of the other in the Most Popular section. Enjoy.

Tiny Nation Aims to be 1st "Cyber-Island"
This tropical island off the east coast of Africa is best-known for its white-sand beaches, its designer clothing outlets and its spicy curries. But tiny Mauritius is about to stake a new claim to fame. By year's end, or soon afterward, it is expected to become the world's first nation with coast-to-coast wireless Internet coverage, the first country to become one big "hot spot."

Romanian Priest Unrepentant After Crucifixion of Nun
A Romanian Orthodox priest, facing charges for ordering the crucifixion of a young nun because she was "possessed by the devil," was unrepentant as he celebrated a funeral ceremony for his alleged victim.

And I throw this one in just because I love puppies:

Put on Your Robo Suit, We're Going Dancin'

I have nothing clever to say other than me want to go dancing with that beautiful pink ballroom robot while wearing a robot suit. The future will be one big electric boogaloo for everyone.

Doin' It For the Children

So ICANN came up with this brilliant plan: create a .xxx domain for all the porn sites. OK, makes it easier to get that address I've been pining for for all these years and finally make some cash in this internet game.

The only catch is they expect the digital smut peddlers to voluntarily move to this "internet red light district," as some idiots are calling it, but to also fork over $60 per year for the priviledge. Yeah, that's gonna work.
