'cause everybody loves quickies...Twenty Syphilis Posters from the 1940s (be safe with your quickies)...which reminds me of a saying a friend's mother has: where do you find sympathy? Between shit and syphilis in the dictionary.

France's Museum of Frogs. Truly, a visual marvel.

Strange Statues from around the world.

Naked garden statues.

The man who brought the world the sculpture of Britney giving birth has a new piece called Hillary's Bust (for the first woman president of the U.S.A.)

DIY vagina: 1 soft block of tofu, 1 can of pineapple juice, and salt.

Tip that stripper well - she might be keeping a human hand named "Freddy" and six skulls in her room.

The U.S. economy has had a dramatic slow down. If politicians took the time to talk with their constituents, then they wouldn't be surprised by this news.

50% of those polled in the U.S. believe that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction.

Great article in Newsweek on Bush's failures to understand the players in the Middle East and how it affects his administration's strategy. Robert Fisk reports from inside Lebanon.

Residents of a FEMA trailer park set up after hurricane Katrina cannot speak to the press without an "official escort" - something we condemn the Chinese and Cubans for doing.

Beyond Marriage - a group I can heartily support.

Former KEXP DJ, Greg Jaspan (Saturday mornings from 1am to 6 am) speaks with The Stranger about his firing. Setting aside his disgruntled attitude and discussion of the scene of his termination, I find his discussions regarding KEXP programming to be spot on. In my opinion, the station has gone downhill in quality programming for years even as it's popularity has risen.

Harry Potter will be naked on stage next year. Well, Daniel Radcliffe, the actor who plays him will be.

I'm officially a Geek. I thought to myself, "I wonder if it's Equus?" I saw it when I was 18 or 19 at the Seattle Rep. He must have some chops, as that is a challenging role. Assuming the it is not a publicity stunt.

I doubt that it's a publicity stunt. Radcliffe was an actor on stage before he began the Harry Potter role. Of the three principle actors, he was the only one with significant acting experience.

I wouldn't be surprised to see all three of them trying different roles in the near future. They are working on the 5th movie and there will only be 7 in total. So, they've got to start breaking some stereotypes and try new things if they want to continue their careers.
