Hey, Keckler's site looks great! While I was there I snagged a recipe for roast potatoes that I'm going to try.

For discussion sites, there are always metafilter and threewayaction .

Joe Sorren--the artist\'s website . My connection to his work is that I once lived in Flagstaff, where he hails from. He painted this incredible mural against a curved wall in downtown Flagstaff, which I am very, very fond of. There's something so delightful about his characters. So absolutely odd. Great website. Great art.

Kivrin - that mural is so wonderful!

There's a town on the island here that is "famous" for its murals and I've always hated it. The murals are horrible sentimental ugly things, IMHO. So I've always kinda hated murals.

But THAT mural is fabulous.

It is very cool. I am surprised the City of Flagstaff allowed it. The town was a lot more conservative when I lived there in the 1970's/80's. Sorren painted the mural in 2000. I love to sit beside it, with my afternoon tea, when I visit.

My pseudo-librarian self wishes there was a master index for such sites, but likely there is not. Recommendations?
Well, I help run a community called Persnickety and we try to have some good discussions on political topics, etc. (ie. the Respond and Think forums), and we have quite a few members that are very passionate about that stuff, but I think we've been a little lazy in that area lately due to lack of fresh blood. Hm, I'm bad for plugging my forums when I've just recently joined, but if anyone wants to check it out, that would be great.

I'm actually on the hunt for good forums myself lately, which is what brings me here. This one looks pretty great.

Dang, I guess I was wrong. 3WA is shutting down. Everyone is saying their goodbyes. It's quite sad, as that was what I can only think to describe as a close-knit group of 5,000 people.

Actually, it's possible that 3WA will be saved. Not over yet, if I remember correctly.

If y'all like Big Bad Chinese Mama, may I also reccommend Angry Little Asian Girl . Same sort of sentiments, but done with a little six year old girl who likes to flick people off. I own two of the T-shirts.

Also, there's ljdrama.org for those who like to watch the fights that go on in LiveJournals (watch out, though...it can get somewhat mean), and The Story About the Baby , which details how this baby girl is raised. It'd not what you'd think it is. Trust me. I read this religiously as soon as I found it.

I like http://www.homestarrunner.com, especially the various start pages and the Strong Bad emails (.../sbemail.html). Nice use of Flash, and funny, too.
